A really amazing performance by Andreas Antonopoulos in front of Italian bankers, consultants and other financial people participating at Deloitte's conference dedicated to "blockchains". In October 2016. Blockchain is currently one of the most widely-discussed technologies. There are not many industries that shouldn’t be either excited or worried about its potential, with use cases, proof-of-concepts, and fullfledged businesses based on blockchain technology emerging at an increasing pace. **FAIR USE** Copyright Disclaimer under section 107 of the Copyright Act 1976, allowance is made for “fair use” for purposes such as criticism, comment, news reporting, teaching, scholarship, education and research.

Bitcoin Q&A: Inflation and debt systems
 
12:04
How do you see the roles of debt and inflation changing in society with the advent of cryptocurrencies? Does Bitcoin have the best monetary policy? Bitcoin and many other cryptocurrencies are not debt instruments, whereas most of the popular, state-run forms of currency today are. You can't do fractional reserve banking or issue debt with bitcoin. Airdrops / fork coins are a form of supply inflation. How do you explain the different approaches to cryptocurrencies from China and Japan? The first question is from the patron-only live Q&A which took place on January 27th 2018. The second question is from the first monthly live Patreon Q&A session on November 27th, 2017. The third question is from the patron-only live Q&A which took place on February 24th 2018.

Ethereum Q&A: Smart contract platforms
 
09:09
What is the best platform for smart contracts? What makes Ethereum interesting to you? So far, most of the platforms experimenting with smart contracts, besides Ethereum, are either still in the roadmap or early testing phases of development (i.e. federated sidechains and drivechains). Most of the so-called "third generation" blockchains have not been able to differentiate sufficiently from the first and second generation blockchains. We cannot draw very accurate conclusions without being able to compare them at scale. When I speak about Ethereum, I am speaking more broadly than the ETH token and blockchain, but rather virtual machine-based, Turing complete, programmable blockchain for smart contracts. During the maturation of this technology, there are going to be a lot of governance missteps and security vulnerabilities because they are choosing flexibility over security in the tradeoff. Ethereum can't do what Bitcoin does. Having a robust, simple script language and conservative, reliable development is a strong differentiating factor. The biggest challenge for both Bitcoin and Ethereum moving forward is privacy. This is a question from the patron-only live Q&A which took place on December 16th 2017.

Advanced Bitcoin Scripting -- Part 1: Transactions & Multisig
 
59:58
This is the first part of a more technical talk where Andreas explores Bitcoin script, with examples from the 2nd edition of Mastering Bitcoin, focusing on the use of conditional statements, flow control, guard clauses and time locks. The examples will include advanced multi-signature scripts, hash time lock contracts and asymmetric revocable commitments. Then he answers questions about Bitcoin's quirky bugs, where Bitcoin differs from Ethereum at a scripting level, how SegWit works, how consensus rules change, and whether Bitcoin is more than just a currency.

Interview: "The Bitcoin Protocol"
 
29:00
In this interview, Andreas answers questions about Bitcoin's development into a secure, borderless system that is already influencing geopolitical relations and decision-making, and why the banks' attempt to offer "blockchains in a bottle" is mostly a re-run of the boring and isolated intranets failing to compete against the innovation of the open internet. 0:17 - What is the potential for bitcoin to address financial inclusion? 1:58 - What will bitcoin's impact be on countries like Greece, Cyprus, Argentina, Venezuela, and China? 4:36 - How does Bitcoin's consensus algorithm and architecture determine its properties? 6:44 - Is Bitcoin a success story in terms of decentralisation? 7:54 - Is Bitcoin's governance system efficient? Is inefficiency bad? 9:20 - What are the most interesting upcoming developments? Technical: Time-based scripts, Segregated Witness, Schnorr signatures, Lightning Network, etc. Social: remittances, cross-border payments 14:10 - What big challenge does Bitcoin face in the next few years? 15:46 - What kind of regulations should we expect in the next few years? Who / what will be the focus or target? 18:17 - What is your advice for developers interested in Bitcoin, Ethereum, or blockchains in general? 19:12 - Is the blockchain the most interesting part of Bitcoin? 21:47 - Do big banks and other financial companies really need blockchains? 24:44 - Why are open blockchains more innovative?

Andreas M. Antonopoulos--Bitcoin Future April,2018-Banking Or Issue Debt With Bitcoin
 
12:10
How do you see the roles of debt and inflation changing in society with the advent of cryptocurrencies? Does Bitcoin have the best monetary policy? Bitcoin and many other cryptocurrencies are not debt instruments, whereas most of the popular, state-run forms of currency today are. You can't do fractional reserve banking or issue debt with bitcoin. Airdrops / fork coins are a form of supply inflation. How do you explain the different approaches to cryptocurrencies from China and Japan? The first question is from the patron-only live Q&A which took place on January 27th 2018. The second question is from the first monthly live Patreon Q&A session on November 27th, 2017. The third question is from the patron-only live Q&A which took place on February 24th 2018.

Bitcoin Q&A: Energy consumption
 
05:51
Is the "energy consumption" in mining a problem? Mining is a business of arbitrage for the cheapest sources of electricity. Proof-of-work mining is contributing to massive investment and subsidy in renewables / alternative energy and efficiency improvements in processing.

Bitcoin Q&A: Bitcoin vs. blockchain
 
04:27
What is the difference between Bitcoin and "blockchain"? Blockchains are only one of the foundational technologies. In an attempt to co-opt the interest around Bitcoin, companies and governments are trying to circle the square by creating centralised and permissioned versions while entirely missing the point: decentralization.

Ethereum Q&A: Why I'm writing 'Mastering Ethereum'
 
08:35
Why are you writing 'Mastering Ethereum'? What is the scope of the book? Are you still interested in Bitcoin? I am interested in the application of programmable blockchains to consensus networks that use a virtual machine to resolve the state of smart contracts. This applies to ETH, ETC, Rootstock, and other smart contract-focused blockchains. These systems will probably not have the robust monetary policy, security, decentralisation, or scalability of Bitcoin, but they do open up more potential for research and innovation in the area of smart contracts. I will not limit my learning or intellectual curiosity in order to satisfy a religious-like litmus test. Don't forget who the real enemies are: the totalitarian, fascist, crony, centralised banking systems that cause enormous damage to the world.

Bitcoin Futures | Andreas M. Antonopoulos: Bitcoin Futures Q&A
 
08:54
Bitcoin Futures | Andreas M. Antonopoulos: Bitcoin Futures Q&A Are there futures markets for cryptocurrencies? Are they dangerous for Bitcoin? Is there a risk of price manipulation? What will happen once traditional investors can become involved in cryptocurrencies this way? Many miners were already using futures markets in their business operations as a hedge against price downturns. Right now this economy is still just a trickle, so it is difficult to anticipate what the impact of traditional investment will be. Risk depends on the structure of the futures market. There is a great deal of risk in naked shorting, but as long as traders hold the underlying asset or sufficient collateral (ex. CME), the risk is reduced. The anticipated benefits of the emergence of futures markets include increased liquidity and reduced volatility. Andreas M. Antonopoulos is a technologist and serial entrepreneur who has become one of the most well-known and respected figures in bitcoin. Original video: https://youtu.be/vGz22l1FZEM Andreas M.

Bitcoin Q&A: Operating a business with cryptocurrency
 
19:55
When is the optimal time to "come out" as a bitcoin user? How do you operate a cryptocurrency or multi-currency business? What if the price of bitcoin "falls to zero"? When will bitcoin be ready as a day-to-day currency, rather than as a speculative investment? Why is earning bitcoin, instead of buying, better from an economic and privacy perspective? These questions are from the 'The Internet of Money' tour in Dublin, Ireland, the March and May monthly Patreon Q&A sessions, which took place on March 23rd, March 31st, and May 26th 2018 respectively.

"Blockchain" or Bitcoin: Understanding the differences
 
37:15
In this talk, Andreas explores the rise of the term "blockchain" as a counterweight to bitcoin. The term blockchain does not provide a definition, as it has been diluted to be meaningless. Saying "blockchain" simply invites questions, such as "what is the consensus algorithm". Meanwhile, bitcoin continues to offer an alternative to the traditional financial system. Andreas looks at the value of private ledgers, which he sees as having a small impact on finance, versus open, global and accessible payment and currency systems such as bitcoin which he sees as fostering a global revolution in finance and access to financial tools.

(Special Report Andreas Antonopoulos)  Why are you writing 'Mastering Ethereum'?
 
08:49
Why are you writing 'Mastering Ethereum'? What is the scope of the book? Are you still interested in Bitcoin? I am interested in the application of programmable blockchains to consensus networks that use a virtual machine to resolve the state of smart contracts. This applies to ETH, ETC, Rootstock, and other smart contract-focused blockchains. These systems will probably not have the robust monetary policy, security, decentralisation, or scalability of Bitcoin, but they do open up more potential for research and innovation in the area of smart contracts. I will not limit my learning or intellectual curiosity in order to satisfy a religious-like litmus test. Don't forget who the real enemies are: the totalitarian, fascist, crony, centralised banking systems that cause enormous damage to the world.

Bitcoin Q&A: How do I choose a wallet?
 
04:03
How do I choose a cryptocurrency wallet? Every wallet has different features, transaction customization, fee estimation, levels of security and privacy, and affiliations. The criteria for wallets is different depending on the person, their needs, and risk model. Wallets that used to be good may no longer be good or share the same principles. You don't have to use one wallet forever. Use many different wallets for different purposes and feel free to change them often. One of the criteria I use for wallets is that if it doesn't support SegWit, I don't use it, because I want the fee discounts. NOTE: This talk was recorded prior to the cancellation of 2X. A couple mobile wallets like EdgeSecure beta (formerly Airbitz), GreenAddress, and Samourai now support SegWit.

The Internet of Money: Five Years Later
 
39:19
In this talk, Andreas reflects on all the exhilarating and terrifying moments of the last five years in Bitcoin, especially the price bubble of 2017. But he also reminds people who have come for the price that they should stay for the principles. This keynote talk happened during the epic one-night only extravaganza at the historic Music Box Theater in Chicago on April 25th, 2018. The main event, emceed by Pamela Morgan, was a live recording of the 5-year anniversary episode of the Let’s Talk Bitcoin Podcast. All four hosts Adam B. Levine, Stephanie Murphy, Jonathan Mohan, and Andreas M. Antonopoulos were together on-stage for the first time ever. The hour-long episode included the hosts discussing some of their favorite memories over the past five years, what’s happening now, and of course, they encouraged some audience participation. The show was recorded and made available as a podcast on the LTB network.

Bitcoin Q&A: Reflections on the last five years
 
07:12
What is the most significant thing you've changed your mind on with respect to cryptocurrencies in the last five years? Making predictions with certainty in a new and fast-paced industry; under-estimating the resilience of Bitcoin; the social attack / argument surface. If you were to make one change to Bitcoin, what would it be? I would like to see more implementations of privacy features, which is already happening. However, no one person gets to make changes to Bitcoin. There is not much else I would change in the original design; I think it would be hubris even for me to say I can do it better. There has been a "next Bitcoin" that fixed supposed fatal flaws ever year since the beginning of Bitcoin, but none have superseded its design choices aimed at security, censorship resistance, and decentralisation. (And no, market capitalisation is not a great measurement for comparison.) This is a question from the patron-only live Q&A which took place on February 24th 2018.

Measuring Success: Price or Principle
 
36:30
In this talk, Andreas questions whether our ways of measuring success in Bitcoin and open blockchains (such as price, market capitalisation, or being able to buy coffee at Starbucks) make sense, what these metrics reveal about our individual goals, and why we should instead focus on fostering communities founded on principles we want to see flourish in the world.
