Lien Truong and Lucas Cullen on Crypto Clothesline Podcast chat about the great crypto divide between Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Lightning Network, BSV, Bitcoin ABC and the wars within the crypto community.
In the first instalment of this two part series on the great Crypto Divide we chat with Lien Truong of Huobi and Lucas Cullen a blockchain developer and CTO of Civic Ledger. The question of what has become of the crypto community has our minds boggling when we consider the infighting, attacks and division of camps. We have found ourselves in a position where particularly in Telegram chat groups there is constant wrangling between the Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Bitcoin SV, Bitcoin ABC and Lightning Network supporters.

This week we discuss the mental health effects of day trading and being emotionally invested in cryptocurrency with Dr Prash of Caleb and Brown.
On a more serious note (after the intro discussing the pole incident lol) we head straight into the topic of trading cryptocurrency and how it can be a stressful activity. This relatively new market goes through highs and lows on a regular basis. Often, there’s a great deal with risk associated with any investment but even more risk associated with trading cryptocurrencies. For this reason, it’s often reported that those who trade cryptocurrencies experience emotions of stress and sadness on a regular basis. In poker playing and gambling there are emotions of anger or sadness and is known as being on “tilt”, as you’re tilted from playing optimally. The same thing applies to trading cryptocurrencies. Someone who trades regularly can feel compounding negative effects on their mental health as one loss leads to a series of losses made from poor judgement decisions based on emotions instead of reason. In our discussion with Dr Prash we look at the various reasons why trading can be inherently stressful and potentially negatively impact on family, finances and health.

This week we go back in time to a cosy couch conversation at the BlockConscious summit last year with two of our favorite blockchain movers and shakers! As a bonus we sneak in a snippet of the panel discussion at the BlockConscious Summit which was moderated by JP Parker “Re-imagining Our Future” with Lucas Cullen, Dr. Prash, Karen Cohen, Professor John Flood (Griffith University), Abheeti Kathryn Pass and Joshua Marriage from CloakCoin. It was this panel that got our brains ticking over around privacy, adoption and mindset. Check out all our interviews on the Crypto Clothesline Podcast HERE.
Speaking with the original co-inventor of Bitcoin was such a warm and friendly experience… Nothing like you would imagine Satoshi Nakamoto would sound – If you believed the rumors that Dr Scott Stornetta is in fact Satoshi. It is safe to say we absolutely do not believe these rumors however there is still space for us to be wrong.
Blockchain was not born together with Satoshi’s Bitcoin white paper, it had been mooching around for almost 20 years before Satoshi started creating new layers on top of the original protocol, thereby creating Bitcoin… Scott went on to tell us that although their processes were on track, technology was just not there yet as the biggest storage drive was just 10mb compared to our terabyte hard drives we have now.

This week we welcome Amelia Franklin of BeanLedger on Crypto Clothesline.
If you didn’t think your coffee addiction was a problem before, it may be time to reconsider. In just a few short years coffee is set to become extinct and Amelia Franklin is making it her life mission to save the coffee crops and reinvent the industry altogether.
Amelia explains that the main purpose of bean leadger is not to duplicate the ‘organic’ and ‘fair trade’ certification systems because that has already been done with blockchain. What hasn’t bean done (pardon the pun) is the inclusion of the farmers, the roasters, the sellers and the drinkers in guaranteeing that the bean you drank from is not in fact a ‘blood bean’. BeanLedger will not be an ICO but will go ‘old school’ and crowdfund. To support this cause whose mission is to save the planet through coffee head to their website: www.beanledger.org

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.
