Coin Chat Wednesday: Steve and Yuri talk to Moritz Bierling | Holochain

This week Steve and Yuri talk to Moritz Beirling from Holochain. It’s a funny start to the Vlog where Yuri confesses that he has never slept with a director while working in Broadway. Not that he was ever asked, he adds. Not that he’s judging, he adds. Yeah, the lads are funny but soon they jump in at the deep end as Moritz explains that there is huge confusion over common terms such a  framework, protocol and a platform. And then there is the quetion of white papers, or is that black papers or blue ones… It’s an interesting programme – watch it now

Mandy Shemuvalula: Youth is Not Wasted on the Young

That old saying about youth being wasted on the young has never had more relevance than it does right now. Mandy Shemuvalula’s hectic race to take on the world’s youth highlights the main impediments to young people getting ahead in business – too many old farts blocking their way. You have been warned. If you are of an ageist bent then this article is not for you. (hint, check out if you are a youth or old fogie in paragraph three).

Barbara Bickham, or a life spent in blockchain, the ultimate intersection between technology and money

“Well, being an entrepreneur has nothing to do with starting a company, that’s just part of it. What inspires you to create that company is the important part. What drives you to go down that road. I think that entrepreneurs are naturally born leaders, they like to shape and mold things. They are naturally curious people. They ask a lot of questions. And they are very clear on themselves. They clearly know their vision and mission. And they like to have people come along and help them”

“No one learned their lesson after the last crash” and “It’s all fake news”

These were some of the headlines running in the mainstream media following the resurgence of the cryptocurrency markets. An article by Sebastian Sinclair in Coinbase picked out some choice commentary from the titles above down to ‘it is only an April Fool’s joke.’ How we wish they would start commenting sensibly on this sector. We don’t want mainstream media to shill the projects but we would like some rational commentary please.

W. Scott Stornetta: A life of research, education, and solving the fundamental riddle of data immutability through blockchain

The life of W. Scott Stornetta can broadly be divided into two distinct parts. The first part of his career was spent on research and consulting, when he worked at such prestigious corporations as Bell Labs, for example. The second part is a life dedicated to the education of others. Scott spoke to BlockLeaders about his experiences in both fields, and how he solved the issue of data immutability while trying to prove that it couldn’t be done!

Anne Boleyn – a Bitcoin Maximalist

Well here I have to declare my hand. I am distantly related to Anne Boleyn. The story goes that the Godsils are related to the Bullens in Cork, of which another branch of the family changed their name and moved to the UK calling themselves Boleyn.  And she, of course, was the second wife of Henry 8th – the Tudor king with his six wives in total. She was beheaded with a sword rather an axe (actually treasonous women were supposed to be burnt to death but Henry commuted that sentence too). It only took a single stroke by a French swordsman and executioner brought in to do the job. Henry still had a sweet spot her Anne (not that I’d like that kind of sweet spot). She had a little neck she said when she heard. Before she died she called on the crowd to support their king and she asked for their prayers. She has been declared guilty of adultery also but she never admitted this charge – right until the end.
