In our highly stimulating and f*ck-peppered chat with Aleks Svetski of GetAmber.io this week, we navigated the JPM coin recently issued by JP Morgan bank and the mass-adoption waters of Bitcoin and how best to get the people to even give a shit… GetAmber is a micropayments’ system where, using a simple app installed on your phone connected to your bank account, you can opt to round up everyday payments like buying a coffee, or buying a beer or paying for your groceries, and elect to have the small change difference between your purchase and the nearest dollar, go into your Amber-based Bitcoin account.

This interview with Amanda Alexiuc from Living Room of Satoshi (LROS) was long anticipated and still gives us warm and fuzzies. Not just because Amanda is our friend but because the Living Room of Satoshi was our first paid sponsor when we were so small even our family had to be reminded about that podcast thing we were doing. The Living Room of Satoshi took a leap and trusted we knew a little bit about what we were doing and jumped in with us. For this we are forever grateful.
Amanda reminded us that the first moment we dip our toes into the crypto waters is daunting, overwhelming and can often be a lifetime of learning in such a raw and volatile new space. You can find LRoS on Twitter, Facebook and Reddit and at https://www.livingroomofsatoshi.com/Check out all our interviews on the Crypto Clothesline Podcast HERE.

A Human Blockchain Bridge Between Theory And Practice
Navroop Sahdev is a dynamic and positive force in blockchain technology. Possibly even more importantly, seeing our present unfolding into the future faster apparently than the speed of light, she’s effecting change also through emerging technology in its various manifestations, layered over a fundamental foundation of blockchain.
This first week of season two is a showstopper comprising of two episodes interviewing the trailblazers behind the Yellow Vest Movements (YVM) in both France and Australia. Roman Light, the visionary behind the French YVM reports on the motives behind the movement and the current volatile situation in France.
In a further twist, the CIR (OR RIC in France) would have a multitude of other functions including the ability to repeal existing laws and amendments to the constitution. Cryptocurrency and Blockchain were key topics in the interview with blockchain technology being the vital component in the intended decentralised, encrypted and secure voting application.
This week we interview Lucas Cullen, often referred to as ‘Brisbane’s Bitcoin Grandpa’. We could write a whole blog just on his achievements alone but it is safe to say that this would not tie in well with his humble and grounded approach to life.
It did take us three attempts to tie this man down to an actual interview, and it was a pleasure to finally chat with him about his life, observations, thoughts and predictions on the future of crypto and blockchain.
This week, in our interview with the dynamic and ground-breaking Nataliya Hearn of Cryptochicks, we learn about the myriad of ways that Nataliya and her committed female (and male) crew, are bringing blockchain technology and related technologies to the front for women all over the world from the US and Canada, where Cryptochicks first started, to Hackathons for women from Asia, Africa and beyond.

After that he got a Masters in Financial Engineering and then ended up working on Wall Street building risk models. Tone went on to becoming a trader and then transitioned to being a public speaker. Now he works as a content creator with a highly successful YouTube podcast.
Naomi Brockwell, our guest this week, is like a crypto-chameleon, moving through life metamorphoses with amazing projects including: working as an actress, musician and dancer; co-founding The Soho Forum where there are monthly debates on topics of interest to libertarians; emceeing various international events including Consensus18 and travelling the world; creating Bitcoin Girl and other funky pop takes on the crypto world from Bitcoin Girl to Satoshi’s whitepaper; having her own extremely successful quirky techy YouTube channel where she chats with the geekiest to the slickest; humanitarian interviews and a heap of really interesting other stuff…
In the third instalment of our 3-part series on the Free Ross Campaign we chat with Roger Ver about Ross Ulbricht. This 3-part series is dedicated to Ross Ulbricht, the man behind the Silk Road e-commerce website who’s serving a double-life sentence plus 40 years for victimless crimes. In a surprising, mind-set-challenging and outspoken way, Roger Ver, founder of Bitcoin.com, libertarian and a loyal supporter of the Free Ross campaign, speaks up against the overwhelming power of the State.
We at the Crypto Clothesline urge you to head to freeross.org and sign the petition to free Ross Ulbricht. Check out all our interviews on the Crypto Clothesline Podcast HERE.
