Jill Carlson: Open Money Initiative '" Free Access to Finance as a Human Right

3 days 11 hours ago

A common meme in the cryptocurrency space is that it has the potential to help people in countries where only the rich and powerful access to global financial markets. But ten years after the Bitcoin white paper was released, just how many 'œunbanked' people has cryptocurrency helped? Some see crypto as a tool to empower vulnerable populations in places where hyperinflation and strict capital controls make day-to-day survival a nearly impossible challenge.

We're joined by Jill Carlson. Previously at Chain and Tezos, Jill has been writing about the cryptocurrency industry for several years. In 2016 she published a paper titled 'œCryptocurrency and Capital Controls' which observes the use of Bitcoin in Argentina. Recently, she co-founded the Open Money Initiative, a research organization which looks into how people use money in closed economies. Their initial focus is on Venezuela where years of economic downturn and strict currency controls have created a humanitarian crisis which has political repercussions well beyond the country's borders.

Topics discussed in this episode:

  • Jill's beginning working at Goldman Sachs in the Latin America market
  • Her journey from trading bonds to entering crypto space working at Chain
  • A brief history of Venezuela leading up to the current situation
  • What it's like to experience hyperinflation
  • The Open Money Initiative and the organization's goals
  • How cryptocurrency and specifically Bitcoin is used in Venezuela
  • The political motivations behind the Open Money Initiative
  • The story behind Venezuela's Petro currency
  • Jill's podcast with Meltem Demirors, What Grinds my Gears

The Tatiana Show Ep. 198 Bob Murphy

4 days 10 hours ago

Imagine you are a store owner who just sold $100 worth of items from your store, only to find out that the currency you received had devalued 25% overnight? This scenario rightfully scares people and leaves them reluctant to exchange cryptocurrency for goods or services. To address this topic, Josh and I sat down with Bob Murphy, an austrian economist and senior fellow at the Mises Institute with a Phd in economics from NYU. We discuss the historical significance of gold, if it can be tokenized, and how that would compare to other stable coins. What are the risks? What are the benefits? Listen and learn!

About the Guests:

Robert Murphy is a research assistant professor at the Free Market Institute.

Dr. Murphy earned his B.A. in economics from Hillsdale College and his Ph.D. in economics from New York University. Prior to joining Texas Tech University, he was a visiting assistant professor at Hillsdale College, a visiting scholar at New York University, a research analyst at Laffer Associates, and a senior fellow with the Pacific Research Institute.

What Bitcoin Did #108 A Bitcoin Reality Check in Venezuela with Jill Carlson, Alejandro Machado & Jamaal Montasser

4 days 13 hours ago

Interview location: New York

Interview date: Monday 13th May, 2019

Company: Open Money Initiation

Role: Co-Founders - Jill Carlson, Alejandro Machado & Jamaal Montasser

Venezuela is often promoted as an ideal use case for Bitcoin, a deflationary currency in a country suffering hyperinflation. Despite the examples of people mining Bitcoin or using Bitcoin to hold value, real adoption is complicated.

In Venezuela, people are using a range of currencies including the Dollar, the Peso and Bitcoin, but there are times when the Bolivar must be used, even though getting hold of the currency can be difficult.

The Open Money Initiative is a non-profit organisation whose motivation is believing that access to a free and open financial system is a human right. Their design-led approach is to understand the human experiences of survival in Venezuela and to support and inspire their partners to develop products and services that help people.

In this interview, I talk with the team from OMI about their work, their design-led approach to research, the reality of money within Venezuela, and how Bitcoin can help.

1 week 1 day ago

Interview location: New York

Interview date: Monday 13th May, 2019

Where financial institutions have woken up to a world which includes Bitcoin with the arrival of futures, high-grade custody and banking infrastructure; major companies are now recognising that Bitcoin is now part of the economy that can't be ignored.

During blockchain week in New York, Microsoft announced the launch of their decentralised identity programme which will use the Bitcoin blockchain to create user identifiers. In this episode, I talk with Daniel Buchner, who is leading this initiative at Microsoft, we discuss the culture at Microsoft, how decentralised IDs work and the ethics of using the Bitcoin blockchain for non-financial transactions.

SAFE Crossroads #53, A QUIC, SAFE Solution, with Spandan Sharma

1 week 4 days ago

MaidSafe's Crust (Connections in Rust) program library was necessary due to lack of existing tech to do what was needed for the SAFE Network.

The QUIC protocol has evolved and now provides a connection solution which the whole internet will likely be moving to--really great for the internet at large, and really handy for the SAFE Network's development.

The SAFE project will be an early adopter, because the protocol already contains the needed functionality to make further development of Crust unnecessary.

We talk about this move, the nature of both Crust and QUIC, and more, with MaidSafe's back-end lead, Spandan Shamar. As usual Spandan is very helpful in breaking this all down for us simple folks, but hopefully being informative to dev types, as well.‚

What Bitcoin Did #106 Why Block Reorgs are Bad for Bitcoin with Adam Back and Bryan Bishop

1 week 4 days ago

Interview location: New York

Interview date: Sunday 12th May, 2019

Company: Adam - Blockstream | Bryan - Independent

Role: Adam - Cofounder | Bryan - Core Developer

Following the recent hack of Binance for over 7,000 Bitcoin, a debate was sparked on Twitter regarding returning the funds using a block reorg. While this topic may have been discussed in the past, being new to Bitcoin, I was unaware of the history.

There are many technical aspects to how Bitcoin functions and to the less technical it can be challenging to grasp. I was unaware that block reorgs happen regularly in Bitcoin and why.

I caught up with Adam Back from Blockstream and Bitcoin Core Developer, Bryan Bishop to understand more about what block reorgs are and why large reorgs to reverse transactions are bad for Bitcoin.

The Tatiana Show Ep. 197 Paul Puey of Edge

1 week 4 days ago

Tatiana and Josh had a great conversation with Paul Puey, founder of Edge Wallet and veteran crypto entrepreneur. His experience and insight is blazing trails in the industry. We talked about Edge and looked forward to all the exciting things happening this week, including our event Crypto Stars event Saturday night. He said he will be there primarily to enjoy all the great music and comedy, but will be sporting his Edge shirt and will be happy to answer any questions other attendees may have. If you don't have your free ticket yet, this opportunity is another reason to come join the fun and network with so many amazing folks like Paul.

We also spoke with Jun Dam who is organizing the 100X Crypto Summit event that Tatiana will be speaking at on May 14th here in NYC.

About the Guests:

Paul is a proud Electrical Engineering and Computer Science graduate of UC Berkeley with a wide range of technical skills from low-level 3D graphics engineering to development of custom web CMS systems, even before people knew what a CMS was. He held lead engineering positions with Nvidia and Chromatic Research, but most recently owned and operated several non-technical small businesses throughout California. There he learned the importance of the intersection of people, business, and technology.

Today, Paul aims to bring Bitcoin mainstream with software and products aimed at simplifying Bitcoin and making it insanely easy to send and secure this revolutionary currency while maintaining the highest level of privacy.

When not converting people to bitcoin you'll likely find him climbing a rock in Joshua Tree or at a local climbing gym.
