Description

This is episode 109 of You, Me, and BTC – your liberty and Bitcoin podcast!
Last week, we struggled with the possibility that Bitcoin might be dead. In the end, we found that idea highly unlikely, but it’s still clear that the community is struggling. Erik Voorhees saw the issues too and noted two important moves that could help revive Bitcoin.
First, the core developers need to develop a plan for increasing the Bitcoin block size. And second, they should “[denounce] the censorship that has plagued community discussion.” Are those good moves? Will they really improve the Bitcoin community? How else can we ensure that Bitcoin continues to develop healthily?
Tune in for our thoughts on those questions and tons more! Your hosts are Daniel Brown, Tim Baker, and John Stuart. Enjoy!
Leave a comment and tell us how you think we can revive Bitcoin!
We’d also like to thank this episode’s sponsor, LuckyBit.

  • I’m interested in working for Bitcoin but atm it’s hard to find these kind of sites. At the moment it seems quite hard to benefit from Bitcoin unless you have purchased Bitcoins through your current accounts as investments. However, as someone noted somewhere else, buying and selling goods for Bitcoin online seems to be hard. How can Bitcoin make a real difference while it’s still not a feasible currency for most of us?

Are any of ya’ll taking this seriously or just looking at it as a buying opportunity?   Associated article (one of many):   Forbes   http://www.forbes.com/sites/jasonbloomberg/2016/01/18/something-rotten-in-the-state-of-bitcoin/#2715e4857a0b321bf5be4650

  • Our new startup has a simple idea behind it – hosting that is private, anonymous, and free from censorship. I could spend a long time trying to explain it,… instead, please take a look at our video and site, and tell us what you think of it. https://www.decentralhost.in/modules/portal/index2.php
