Hello, welcome to episode 53 of The Bitcoin Game, I'm Rob Mitchell. In this episode I speak to Zac McClure of TokenTax, in what I feel is one of the more in-depth cryptocurrency tax discussions I’ve ever heard on a podcast. We discuss everything from like-kind cryptocurrency exchanges to the idea of selecting specific cost-basis cryptocurrency when giving a gift. We also cover some of the features of TokenTax, a new service to help people manage cryptocurrency taxes. == SHOW LINKS == TokenTax https://tokentax.us Zac McClure on Twitter https://twitter.com/ZacharyMcClure TokenTax on Twitter https://twitter.com/tokentax My Intro Tax Talk, Episode #10 with Jake Benson of Libra Tax https://letstalkbitcoin.com/blog/post/the-bitcoin-game-10-talking-taxes-with-jake-benson Zac's Tax Talk on Blockchannel https://soundcloud.com/blockchannelshow/episode-38-crypto-taxes-made-easy-with-tokentax == STAY IN TOUCH == Thanks so much for taking the time to listen to The Bitcoin Game!

Hello, welcome to episode 52 of The Bitcoin Game, I'm Rob Mitchell. This episode I speak with Mike In Space, longtime creator of Bitcoin memes, and more recently, the host of the comedy series, Bitcoin Car Talk. I’ve never heard Mike interviewed, so I thought it would be fun to learn a bit more about him. I enjoy Mike’s unique sense of humor enough that you'll hear me laugh just hearing his voice at the beginning of our conversation. == SHOW LINKS == Bitcoin Car Talk http://bitcoincartalk.com Mike In Space on Twitter https://twitter.com/mikeinspace Info on Mike's older Twitter Avatar https://news.artnet.com/art-world/botched-restoration-of-jesus-fresco-miraculously-saves-spanish-town-197057 Brian Hoffman's comedic YouTube playlist https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLdZZFJLp77OHDlyxQSqov89Qko_hBYpU8 Bitcoin Uncensored, early podcasts, Soundcloud https://soundcloud.com/bitcoinuncensored Bitcoin Uncensored / Chris Derose, YouTube https://www.youtube.com/user/cderose36/videos == STAY IN TOUCH == Thanks so much for taking the time to listen to The Bitcoin Game!

Hello, welcome to episode 51 of The Bitcoin Game, I'm Rob Mitchell. Since my last episode, we’ve seen the Bitcoin 2X fork called off, and just when it seemed everyone could relax for five minutes, the Bitcoin Cash fork went on a full scale blitz. Bitcoin never disappoints in providing interesting times. In October, the Los Angeles Bitcoin Meetup featured a talk with Bitcoin Core developer Jonas Schnelli. Jonas gave a presentation called The Bitcoin Core project explained: What is Bitcoin Core and who is behind it. I learned a lot, hope you do too. == SHOW LINKS == Los Angeles BItcoin Meetup with Jonas Schnelli https://www.meetup.com/Los-Angeles-Bitcoin/events/244021004 Bitcoin Core https://bitcoincore.org Chaincode Labs http://chaincode.com Blockstream https://blockstream.com Bitmain https://www.bitmain.com MIT Digital Currency Initiative http://dci.mit.edu Digital Bitbox https://digitalbitbox.com Jonas Twitter https://twitter.com/_jonasschnelli Jonas GitHub https://github.com/jonasschnelli == STAY IN TOUCH == Thanks so much for taking the time to listen to The Bitcoin Game!

Hello, welcome to episode 50 of The Bitcoin Game, I'm Rob Mitchell. This episode also marks three years since I started this podcast. Back in 2013, when I was first getting into Bitcoin, Jeremy Allaire's interest in the space was a big validation of Bitcoin's importance as a disruptive technology. So I was pretty excited when Brian Cohen introduced me to Jeremy to arrange this interview. In today's podcast, you'll hear Jeremy talk about his early days exploring the Internet, then building companies based on innovative content delivery tools, and eventually, his decision to create Circle, a payment company built on Bitcoin. Jeremy also talks about his brand new open-source project, CENTRE. How many billions of dollars worth of cryptocurrency did Circle trade in August?

Hello, welcome to episode 49 of The Bitcoin Game, I'm Rob Mitchell. After moderating a Bitcoin scaling panel at the State Of Digital Money in Los Angeles, I followed up by arranging back-to-back interviews with Ryan X. Charles and Eric Lombrozo. I wanted to dig a bit deeper into some issues around scaling and Bitcoin forks. Last episode was my interview with Ryan, and now the yin to Ryan’s yang, Eric Lombrozo. == SHOW LINKS == The Bitcoin Game #48: Digging Deeper (Part One) - Ryan X.

Hello, welcome to episode 48 of The Bitcoin Game, I'm Rob Mitchell. In episode 47 you heard the Bitcoin Scaling panel I moderated at the State Of Digital Money in Los Angeles. While I loved being part of that panel, I really didn’t get to ask many questions. The time allotted to that panel went by so quickly that I really wanted more! So, I was able to arrange interviews with Ryan X. Charles and Eric Lombrozo to dig a bit deeper into some issues around scaling and Bitcoin forks. In this episode I talk to Ryan; you’ll hear Eric in episode 49. UPDATE: Things move fast in Bitcoin! Five days after this interview, Ryan announced Yours will be moving to Bitcoin Cash: https://twitter.com/ryanxcharles/status/900083785726910465 == SHOW LINKS == The Bitcoin Game #47: Scaling Bitcoin with Paul Puey, Tone Vays, Ryan X.

Hello, welcome to episode 47 of The Bitcoin Game, I'm Rob Mitchell. We recently had the State Of Digital Money, the first big Bitcoin conference in Los Angeles since 2015. Actually, I'm unsure if I should call it a Bitcoin conference, since the majority of the presentations were not directly related to Bitcoin. Luckily for me, I got to moderate a panel on scaling Bitcoin with notable Bitcoiners: Core developer Eric Lombrozo, longtime Bitcoin developer Ryan X. Charles, vocal trader and personality Tone Vays, and Airbitz Wallet’s Paul Puey. You'll hear the discussion in its entirety on this episode. == SHOW LINKS == State Of Digital Money - stateofdigitalmoney.com/sessions/panel-bitcoin-scaling-and-the-future Paul Puey Twitter - twitter.com/paullinator Airbitz - airbitz.co Tone Vays Twitter - twitter.com/ToneVays Liberty-Life-Trail - www.libertylifetrail.com Ryan X.

Hello, welcome to episode 46 of The Bitcoin Game, I'm Rob Mitchell. In these times of uncertainty and division, Bitcoin could use some fence menders.

The conference audio includes an extended intro from me as the MC of this event, and you'll hear just a bit of my perspective.
