Bitcoin Q&A: Biggest threat to cryptocurrencies
 
02:20
What is the biggest threat to cryptocurrencies? The main thing we're vulnerable to, is things deteriorating too fast in traditional economies. A financial crisis would dry up capital everywhere but would also push more people to exit the system. I would rather have a few more years of being thoroughly underestimated and ignored.

Bitcoin Q&A: Can cryptocurrencies support terrorism?
 
01:59
Can cryptocurrencies be used to support terrorist groups? First we'd have to displace their most important funding mechanisms, which are the US dollar and oil (some of which our governments gave to them directly). We live in a world where criminals use technology (money, telephones, shoes), but we don't ban those technologies just because criminals use them. Most of humanity will use them for food, sanitation, healthcare etc. It is a fake promise that we're going to stop terrorism by controlling everyone's money, because all it does is exclude billions of people from the global financial system.

Bitcoin Q&A: Intrinsic vs. extrinsic assets
 
05:06
Are blockchains useful for supply chain transparency, disintermediation, and integrity control? To some extent, but there is a big difference between models that use intrinsic, native assets vs. extrinsic assets. The latter is currently very difficult to do in a decentralized way or without reintroducing counter-party risk. You need to think about this problem not only as a technologist but from the perspective of each of the human components involved. Sometimes the more you try to apply technical solutions, the easier it is for that system to be gamed by human ingenuity. This is part of a talk which took place at the Bitcoin Open Blockchain (BOB) community event on October 29th 2017 at the mHUB innovation center in Chicago, Illinois: https://www.meetup.com/Bitcoin-Open-Blockchain-Community-Chicago/events/244248063/ Watch the full talk here: https://youtu.be/XCVaabu3J04 RELATED: Immutability and Proof-of-Work: The Planetary Scale Digital Monument - https://youtu.be/rsLrJp6cLf4 Proof-of-Work (PoW), Proof-of-Stake (PoS), Delegated Proof-of-Stake (DPoS) - https://youtu.be/3W_3AQrQEOM Consensus with decentralized oracles and real-world variables - https://youtu.be/8bYmK6sZL00 What is mining? - https://youtu.be/t4p4iMqmxbQ Solar energy and mining in space - https://youtu.be/cusakcpa8AM What should not go on a blockchain? - https://youtu.be/shn9otsT-Pw The 14nm limit, decentralization, and renewable-energy mining - https://youtu.be/gYwc_MCC4us Andreas M.

Bitcoin Q&A: Inspiring cryptocurrency projects
 
07:53
How can we get more women involved with cryptocurrencies? What are the most inspiring projects that encourage people to think beyond the current system and explore the innovative potential of the technology? Tired of hearing about the latest scammy ICO? Instead, here are some inspiring real-world projects using cryptocurrencies for good! 1. Fereshteh Forough's "Code to Inspire" (@CodeToInspire) educational initiative, the first coding school for girls in Afghanistan, which uses Bitcoin for financial support & autonomy due to a lack of payment processors and high fees in the country (http://codetoinspire.org) More: https://bitcoinmagazine.com/articles/code-to-inspire-bitcoin-gives-afghan-women-financial-freedom-1460652348/ 2. The BitGive Foundation (@BitGiveOrg), a nonprofit organization that runs a program called GiveTrack, which allows donors to trace bitcoin transactions on a public platform in real time to see how funds are spent, ensure they reach their final destination, and track the results generated from contributions. (https://www.bitgivefoundation.org). I would also like to see more people addressing the issue of international remittances for migrant workers. Sending money home is a big business where a lot of money is going towards paying fees, about the same amount that is being spent in foreign aid. Why not just let people keep more of their own money? Doing so also generates more economic activity in return. If the informal cryptocurrency remittance market becomes really successful, Western Union will probably go out of business, but -- at least here -- not a single tear will be shed. This is part of a talk which took place on July 7th 2017 at a Bloktex event hosted by the Wisma BeeOn Group in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia: https://antonopoulos.com/event/the-future-of-money-kuala-lumpur-malaysia/ RELATED: Remittances and smuggling in Venezuela - https://youtu.be/RRXecXfWARw Design for the disabled and disempowered - https://youtu.be/VlcHyl_rPVM Bitcoin, Payment Security, and Consumer Protection - https://youtu.be/qMkGfB8X58o Crossing the chasm of theoretical vs. real need - https://youtu.be/yIR0OBEAaUE How long until mainstream adoption? - https://youtu.be/y3cKBDBabtA The end of vampire-squid financing - https://youtu.be/yyXOQG5iNWo Andreas M.

Bitcoin Q&A: Public keys vs. addresses
 
12:43
What is the difference between public keys and addresses? How are new addresses generated? How are change addresses generated? Why have two outputs? Do you still pay fees if you are sending bitcoin to new addresses in your own wallet? What is the VanityGen command? What does the SIG_HASH flag do? More from 'Mastering Bitcoin': https://github.com/bitcoinbook/bitcoinbook/blob/f8b883dcd4e3d1b9adf40fed59b7e898fbd9241f/ch04.asciidoc These questions are from the MOOC 9.3 and 9.5 sessions which took place on March 2nd and March 16th, 2018 respectively.

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.

Bitcoin Q&A: Job opportunities with cryptocurrencies
 
07:31
Job opportunities provided by the Bitcoin ecosystem, beyond software development. When you change one of the most fundamental technologies (money), anything and everything that is touched by it will be affected.The user composition of the Bitcoin community is becoming more diverse and the mainstream consciousness is changing over time. There are dentists, hairdressers, and cab drivers who have now heard of Bitcoin. We really need graphic designers, UX/UI designers, and customer service people to contribute. We need accountants who are willing to learn to understand this new form of money. Artists can now bypass the intermediaries and connect directly to their audience.

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.

Bitcoin Q&A: Borderless money
 
07:30
Are cryptocurrencies subject to the same border restrictions as foreign currency and cash? Where are bitcoins "located"? What happens when money is data? What are the geopolitical implications of borderless money? Bitcoins 'live' on the blockchain, on a global network, in "the cloud." When you make a transaction, bitcoin is not transmitted anywhere; it simply changes ownership. National "flag" money went from being a store of value, medium of exchange, and unit of account into a system-of-control for playing political games. It removes the power of central banks to take entire populations hostage under hyperinflation experiments. Therefore the framework of money transmission laws is obsolete and fatally undermined.

04:27
What is the difference between Bitcoin and "blockchain"? Blockchains are only one of the foundational technologies.

Bitcoin Q&A: Will governments ban cryptocurrencies?
 
07:36
Will governments or international government organisations implement their own centralised cryptocurrencies and ban the mining or ownership of open decentralised ones like Bitcoin? If your government is against freedom of association, expression, commerce, innovation, job creation, is it a democracy? Are you free? You must resist, not only through your choices about which governments get elected but about using alternative systems. People in places like Venezuela are making that choice every day, breaking the law to feed their family. This is a much bigger issue than Bitcoin or cryptocurrencies.

Bitcoin Q&A: What is the role of nodes?
 
08:17
The role that full nodes play in security of the network. People focus a lot on mining, which has a fundamental role in the network but is not necessarily the most interesting feature of the constellation of technologies involved. The Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) is the most essential protocol underlying the world's routing system, and you use it every single day without knowing it, just as you are oblivious to the vast filtration system allowing you to drink clean water from a fountain. A node is a computer that is participating the global peer-to-peer Bitcoin network. They propagate transactions and blocks everywhere. Full nodes act independently as authoritative verifiers. Onion routing. Double-spending protection. Levels of isolation for untrustworthy nodes. Why would you run one? To be in control of your money - your keys, your money. You don't trust anyone else to tell you what the truth is, you cross-check every claim yourself. Be part of the revolution in money. This is part of a talk which took place at the JW Marriott Sahar (International Airport) on March 26th 2017 in Mumbai, India: https://www.townscript.com/e/bitcoin-talk-by-the-world-famous-andreas-antonopoulos-203132 RELATED: Lightning, full nodes, and miners - https://youtu.be/dlJG4OHdJzs Hard Promises, Soft Promises: Promoting Autonomy instead of Authority https://youtu.be/UJSdMFPjW8c Innovations in wallet design - https://youtu.be/K5Ei3_D8LQ8 How to get people to care about security - https://youtu.be/Ji1lS9NMz1E Andreas M.

Bitcoin Q&A: Setting up secure storage devices

How secure are mobile wallets compared to desktops or hardware wallets? How easy is it for each type of device to be compromised? Does a factory reset or re-installed operating system help? How hard is it to properly set up a factory-reset or airgapped laptops? Can malware be transmitted via USB? What is the Glacier Protocol? These questions are from the MOOC 9.4 session, as well as a monthly Patreon Q&A session, which took place on March 9th and March 31st 2018 respectively.

Bitcoin Q&A: Net Neutrality and open blockchains
 
04:32
How does Net Neutrality impact Bitcoin and other open blockchains? How could we combat caps to certain services? Broadband providers currently operate in a licensed cartel environment, not a free market. Cryptocurrencies could change how we fund the infrastructure of the internet itself.

Bitcoin's Origins and the Genesis Blockade
 
33:50
In this talk, Andreas recounts the origins of Bitcoin, the meaning of the message embedded forever in its genesis block, and how we figured out who the banks truly serve when there was no other choice. He also speaks about what happens when money stops working, why censorship resistance was one of Bitcoin's most valuable characteristics from the start, and what possibilities lay in store with a global, voluntary financial system.

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?

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.

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.

Bitcoin Q&A: CME Bitcoin Reference Rate
 
11:34
The Chicago Mercantile Exchange launched bitcoin futures trading on December 18th. Who would short bitcoin? What are the implications of fork coins on futures markets for cryptocurrencies? One of the fundamental things you need for a futures market is a consistent, predictable, publicly audited reference rate (price) to underpin the legal contracts. Exchanges which provide data for that reference rate must follow certain rules. Disclaimer: I serve on the Oversight Committee for the Bitcoin Reference Rate (BRR) at the Chicago Mercantile Exchange.

Bitcoin Q&A: Price volatility, pegging, stability
 
09:15
Exchange rates in Bitcoin. Bitcoin is traded on international markets against 30-45 national currencies, in real-time. It's affected by fluctuations between those currencies indirectly. The exchange rates are defined by market dynamics (supply and demand). It is still a very small currency; it was a global currency from the day one but it is still small in size, therefore it has more volatility than many of the currencies you're used to. Over the last seven years we've seen that the volatility has gradually reduced; as it gets bigger, it becomes more stable. Why are cryptocurrency prices so volatile? Would pegging make them less volatile? Cryptocurrency markets are like boats: the bigger the boat, the bigger the wave you need to move it. It's volatile because it's still small, but it's getting less volatile and more stable as time goes on because the market is getting bigger with more transactions. Volatility has two sides. We look econometrically at negative volatility as being damaging, not so much with upward volatility. There are national currencies with higher volatility than even bitcoin. The problem with tying / pegging a currency to an external asset is that it may work in the short term but not in the long term, as differences between the two markets emerge and at some point they can't stretch enough to accommodate fluctuations in the other. Eventually someone does an audit of the gold vault and discover it's not there, it's not real, or it's been loaned out to three different people and they all think they own it. The advantage of bitcoin is that it's on the public blockchain, everyone knows where each bitcoin is, and only the person controlling the private keys can make claim to it. The first question is from a talk which took place on October 11th 2016 during the Merkle Conference in Paris, France: http://www.merkleconference.com/ Watch the full talk here: https://youtu.be/SVdIbtWPYw4 The second question is from a talk which took place on July 7th 2017 at a Bloktex event hosted by the Wisma BeeOn Group in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia: https://antonopoulos.com/event/the-future-of-money-kuala-lumpur-malaysia/ Watch the full talk here: https://youtu.be/HaJ1hvon0E0 CLARIFICATION: At 1:17 I say that Bitcoin's market cap is ~$10 billion.

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.

Bitcoin Q&A: Decentralised exchanges and counterparty risk
 
07:03
How will markets transition from centralised exchanges to decentralised exchanges (LocalBitcoins, cash ATMs, Bisq, cross-chain atomic swaps)? Could fiat-pegged cryptocurrencies ease the process of fiat-to-crypto exchanges? How could the counterparty risk introduced by custodial parties like Tether affect the security of Bitcoin and the cryptocurrency ecosystem at large? The first question is from the patron-only live Q&A which took place on November 27th 2017. The second question is from the patron-only live Q&A which took place on January 27th 2018.

Bitcoin Q&A: The value of proof-of-work
 
14:30
Can a blockchain exist without miners, proof-of-work, or blocks? What are the implications for security, trustlessness, and decentralisation? Not all distributed ledgers are blockchains. What is the influence of alternative energy generation on mining in proof-of-work cryptocurrencies? Should we use alternative algorithms that generate "useful work" in addition to mining cryptocurrencies? The hard promises that Bitcoin provides are valuable and useful in themselves. What is the difference between proof-of-work and proof-of-stake? Note: These sessions were recorded live using Google Hangouts. The audio and video may be slightly out of sync at some points. These questions are from the MOOC sessions 7.2 and 8.2, covering the Byzantine Generals' Problem, which took place on February 26th 2017 and September 15th 2017 respectively.

Bitcoin Q&A: How much bitcoin do you have?
 
03:23
How much bitcoin do you have? What percentage of our wealth should be in bitcoins? A percentage that reflects your understanding of how the technology works and your ability to absorb the risk that it entails. However it also depends on what country you're in, because the volatility and risk in bitcoin may be better than your national currency. This is not a recommendation to invest; I have dedicated to career and my passion, I could lose all of it and still have everything else. Invest in education instead of speculation. Note: Yes, I know - this video is now out of date. The advice about risk tolerance and focusing on education still stands.

Bitcoin Q&A: What is mining?
 
03:11
What is mining? Does it work as a business model? Mining - particularly regarding proof-of-work cryptocurrencies like bitcoin - provides industrial infrastructure via special purpose, high performance computing with application specific integrated circuits (ASICs) to ensure security of the network. But the media don't describe it like that, because talking about the "dark web" gets more clicks and sells newspapers. The early internet was also described as an obscure technology only for geeks and criminals. People are afraid of change and we're still in the early days of cryptocurrencies.

What is Consensus: Rules without Rulers
 
29:21
Who is in charge of Bitcoin? Why is it so hard to change the rules? The governance model of Bitcoin, where there can be transparent and neutral rules without rulers, without regulators, is confusing to most people. It is a natural human inclination not only to appeal to authority but to see the absence of a leader as an invitation, a "job opening." Bitcoin has resisted this for nine years, but it is still immature and trying to find its potential. What the failure of SegWit2x demonstrated was not that this group one and that group lost, but that consensus is an overwhelming majority system. Without it, you are unlikely to succeed. The question is not whether we will scale, but how. The battles we've faced so far are tiny compared to what lies ahead. The choice you all make between convenience and liberty, between safety and freedom, will open up opportunities for billions tomorrow.
