TEZOS Update, Bitcoin ETF NO, THETA good news, Tipping BTC on Twitter


morning Blockchainers it’s us the new
kids on the blockchain ash and Lisa the old ball and blockchain good morning
everybody welcome to today’s crypto and blockchain show it’s another day on
planet earth how we all feeling out there we had a look we woke up to some
green this morning yes we have had over the last few days we’ve seen a
significant little boost coming in there’s lots of reasons I’ve been
reading this morning as to why bye Nance leaving the charge there with accepting
fear on-ramps with like Alibaba and also the WeChat platform so more money coming
in there’s lots of good stuff going on someone disappeared from the chance that
we notice who’s s veritasium oh yes I can’t find very tasty among my
veritasium is marked all is zero hang on I’m just looking seeing if it’s no
veritasium is back on the charts is there and it’s gone up 49 it seemed to
disappear off the charts yesterday and come back and it seems to have gone up
49 percent now obviously if you’re watching veritasium this has been a
really interesting one we’ve been following it since the very start we’ve
interviewed people like cliff high we’ve interviewed Reggie we’ve followed the
whole thing really it’s difficult to talk about the moment because Reggie’s
of the sleep you know he’s going with through his court of shenanigans but
it’s going to be an interesting one because there are a lot of people who’ve
said to us and I quote this shit coin is going to 0 he’s a scammer and it’s worth
noting and then there are other people who say this guy is changing the way
that finance works and there are so many people out there that are worried about
it that they are essentially causing massive thud paid campaigns to slur him
issues obviously only time will tell and we’ve got to be honest we do own some
veritasium but we just bought some right the stock isn’t interesting every small
amount well then mine were a zero yesterday how many of you got 32 Lamborghini now we have been chatting
recently we a lot of very intelligent people who are
not fans of blockchain we had a chat to you’ll have seen on the show with a
chaplain that come hand in hand because they’re intelligent well it depends
what’s going on in the market but my question that I wanted to just talk
about with both of us now is yesterday we filmed a very cool lady called Jemima
Kelly from a Financial Times Alphaville and she hasn’t got a lot of good things
to say about blockchain we filmed her for our documentary which
is very nearing completion as we said IPO so achieved picture a lot last week
but we got slot with this lady and we really wanted to get her commentary in
here we might actually show a little clip from it actually a little later on
in this show because she had some really good arguments as to why there are huge
problems in blockchain and crypto generally but point being we’ve been
exposed recently to a lot of people who are naysayers now you can have come out
of sitting with somebody very intelligent after listening for two
hours about them telling you why it won’t work and wait can’t work and why
there are problems and you do start questioning yourself there is a real
sort of evangelical following in cryptocurrency where everybody is almost
like taking the red pill or is it the blue pill I don’t remember the red the
one that sends you down the rabbit hole they’ve taken it they drunk and drank
the kool-aid that had the whole lot we’ve had the kool-aid with all of it
but you kind of listen to these people you start you do start thinking shit if
we back the right horse here I mean how are you feeling a little well I have to
admit it is disheartening when you for the last year and a half two years I’ve
been like talking to my friends explaining about cryptocurrency I’m like
it’s great this is think of blockchain and then every time they ask me now they
go what’s happened to that project well he’s in court and it’s down to zero yeah
we work if we’re 97.3 down on that event it’s not gambling it’s a show you it’s
not going to changing yeah yeah this it’s disheartening but it is the more we
talk to people who have very valid reasons why they think it isn’t gonna
last I always it doesn’t pose the the kind of threat of fiat currency that’s
something real proponents say but I get just to sway this one then someone will
turn around and go I’ve got this new ice you know but like what but we
well not so much these days now I’m but I mean we you know we’ll sit and we’ll
do a chat with Raja vir for an hour for example or John McAfee or you know loads
of these people and you come away going yeah you go blocked him and then you go
and sit with let Jemima yesterday or David generalities become anything well
have we’ve been literally you know wasting our time yes we will just have
to wait and see comment down below people now for Christ’s sake
comment below I don’t know how many times I’ve got to ask you all but we get
down there’s a few comments a couple of people moaning about shit get down and
tell us get involved we’re putting a lot of effort in here people let’s hear from
you let’s see some likes and subscribes as well and let’s hear about what you
want to see we’ve you know we bring this show every week we try and bring you
content that we think is gonna be relevant as opposed to moon kid nonsense
and we hope that you enjoy it but if you do please tell us because sometimes when
you’re in a bear market like this and you’re making a show that’s a lot of
hard work like this you need a little love we need a little bit of love don’t
we you know even the new kids need some love so bring it on make it rain make it
rain on us now now other stuff on the show this week you were going to ask me
but you haven’t so I’ll tell you well because you haven’t given me a second to
interject because you’ve just literally constantly been talking interject you
spoke to Tesco’s didn’t you for the features we haven’t spoken to tells us
they’ve had a really interesting sort of ride since their record-breaking ico at
the time so I wanted to get them in see what’s going on they’ve been very busy
there’s lots been going on so there’s a little clip from that in the show and
there might be a new guest for the news roundup oh yes your events we’re gonna
bring in a new new kid because we’ve been accused recently of not being that
young ah broken and again I will reiterate that we’re not claiming to be
new kids and young kids is an ironic play on the term and the fact that we’re
not kids so if you have missed that you’re probably American but you can be
new and not be young there you go I guess we should probably dive in and
bring that guest in and have a little look at the old news brown my dad can’t really claim he’s a new kid
anymore at his age so I’m here to bring some move to the channel here’s the news
with crypto daily first up bitwise Bitcoin etf denied by SEC
announced earlier today the United States Securities and Exchange
Commission revealed that they have denied the latest Bitcoin exchange
traded fund hopeful from bitwise asset management theta open source network
partners with PewDiePie supported streaming platform CT labs the open
source protocol purpose-built to power the decentralized streaming network that
allows for vertical decentralized apps apps

will soon be integrated into the streaming platform D live according to
the press release published yesterday theatre’s partnership with D live will
give users the chance to watch peer-to-peer video replaying of all
video content and token rewards and last up Twitter Bitcoin tipping service
tipping me launches on Android iOS coming soon mobile phone users can now
smile at Twitter service for Bitcoin micro payments tip in me is now
available on mobile devices the alpha version of the service will be tested
this week for Android devices while alpha testing for iOS devices is
underway a report says the service which to launch as an app will have a mobile
lightning network enabled wallet that will allow users to send tips in Bitcoin
on the Lightning Network thank you have a good week and maybe see you soon this
week in blockchain banter were chatting to a very informed lady Jemima Kelly who
is a reporter for Alphaville at the Financial Times if you don’t follow her
column you should she’s got a very irreverent look at the blockchain world
not the biggest fan of a lot of its concepts but nonetheless a very informed
opinion in this clip we asked her what she thought of about the supposed
scarcity of crypto currencies and Bitcoin especially one of the reasons
that people compared Bitcoin to gold is because of the finite nature supposedly
finite nature of Bitcoin and so this idea that there’s only ever
going to be 21 million bitcoins has attracted people including gold bugs the
problem with that idea is that if you ask Craig Wright what bitcoin is he’ll
say that bitcoin sv is that is the real Bitcoin if you ask Roger ver what he
thinks bitcoin is he’ll say Bitcoin cash is a real Bitcoin so there are more than
one Bitcoin now and in fact that the number of times that Bitcoin can fork
and form other kind of strands is is it’s kind of infinite and so is the
number of copycat cryptocurrencies so in a way Bitcoin has kind of become the
victim of its own success because there are just thousands of of crypto
currencies out there and so this idea that there is some finite nature it’s
just a nonsense there’s not because there’s just there’s only one you know
thing that some people call Bitcoin but not even everyone agrees on what that
bitcoin is and then there’s just thousands of other crypto currencies
that do exactly the same thing so in featured projects we haven’t
spoken to tezo’s and they’ve been on my list of people I’d love to chat to they
obviously had one of the record-breaking I SEOs back in 2017 and they’ve been
working away in the background to deliver and we have Shawn with us today
are you there sure yes I’m here welcome it’s good to have
you here and I guess just to start things off could you maybe give our
viewers a brief rundown of what tezo’s is in case any of them aren’t familiar
Tasos is a software project for a blockchain technology on chin
coordination which is known for its self amending technology so the idea of
tezo’s is to have minimal disruption to the network effect and retain it instead
of the port based technologies that we’ve seen in the past and obviously in
terms of third-generation blockchains we you know we had Bitcoin first of all
then we had etherium now we’ve got this there’s a bit of a race going on isn’t
there for kind of third year we’ve got the kind of eos out there and Tron and
Cardno and there’s what do you think it’s gonna take for its somebody to to
get a get ahead in this in this race by and large it’s going to be the platform
that can capture the greatest network effect which is what our angle is is
retention and growth of that instead of breaking off into several projects and
build upon our platform and in terms of kind of scalability has also been you
know another big battle that’s been going on in blockchain since you know
way from the start a lot of the third generation you know
we’re trying to beat that with with various different approaches to
scalability what what stays OSes kind of take on that Tesla’s is focusing on
layer 2 in terms of scaling and we have some interesting projects going on with
such as marigold I think scaling was a bit premature in
the markets where everybody was rushing to do it but it our focus is more on
scaling on the governance aspect that decision-making is more important and
that it takes the culmination of a number of technologies in order to
actually grow a decentralized watching without
losing the decentralized or without centralizing the project so you can
speed up your storage but you might not have the same throughput it you might
not have the same amount of finality and you need to effectively remove these
bottlenecks along the way yeah because I think that this is one thing a lot of
people we spoke to said there’s lots of different quid pro quos or it’s like
okay you want to go faster we might have to sacrifice some security aspects or
you want to go quicker this way you might have to do so but and chatting two
guys from when we were chatting that card on oh you know they were saying the
reason they’ve sort of taken the time they’ve done is to kind of get these
foundations right and I know there’s been a lot of kind of criticism of Eos
have been so centralized because of the twenty one block producers and you know
is there what do you think is your kind of killer app what’s your kind of what’s
your main horse in the race I think we were a few things I think
what’s really come to light is dad baking or network validation in the
style that we’ve implemented which is actually a permissionless network if you
have a minimum of 8,000 xdz you can stake up a network you don’t have to get
voted in so it doesn’t quite aligned with say some of the other DPOs models
and right now we have about four hundred and sixty Baker’s on the network so I
think baking and staking have become a a pretty big hit and I see the adoption of
that across the board along with like other projects I think what iOS said was
they sort of took it to one side which is well maybe if we have a set number of
nodes we can speed this all up and it certainly made it faster but I don’t
think the project remained it remains anti fragile in the sense that you only
have to compromise 21 you know a majority of the 21 nodes in order to to
make changes to the network and we keep a philosophy closer to Bitcoin where we
want to be as central as as possible yeah that makes sense because I mean
that’s ultimately the the dream from you know the blockchain dream is
decentralization right so if you get into position where your your product is
too centralized or has that ability to be easily you know taken over then then
that’s you know that’s a real problem it’s interesting actually every time I
speak to a block producer some say EOS some say Chios some say a OS everyone to
speak to since they have a different name for it so it England we tend to say
e OS but every time I speak somebody it’s always a different name which is
quite funny and so what are your plans for you know there’s obviously a lot
going on behind the scenes a lot of you know blockchain companies at the moment
I think a lot of people who just view the you know the numbers don’t realize
quite how much work is going on behind the scenes and there are just you know
offices full of people getting stuff done what’s next for tears awesome where
where do you want to see the end of this year out right now the big focus is on
middleware Tooley to make our smart contract languages more accessible so we
have Nicholson is a is a base language and we’re building higher-level
languages on top of those with Smike smart PI and Lego and those would be
more familiar to your average developer and they’ll be able to hop in we’re also
working with truffle in order to build out a suite of tools to really onboard
them for for those who don’t know I’m the executive director of the Khazars
Commons which is community oriented I’m here at the Tocqueville group office in
New York so tases is a a collaboration project and we’re decentralized off Jane
which makes it confusing for most but we are separate organizations and we’re all
trying to coordinate together so in terms of our goals for at least my
organization tells us Commons my focus is on the signalling aspect and our
governance platform teza segura to really be able to display and signal
ahead of time for changes that are being made on the network so right now we have
right now we have a vote going through for the Babylon proposal and we should
know within about a week whether that’s going to pass now it’s been obviously
the last two years have been very you know we’ve been making this documentary
for the last three years charting since the beginning of 2017 until
you know the end of 2019 and it’s been an incredibly wild ride you know that in
2017 there was you know that buoyancy and money and everything and then 2018
theory and prices crashing down and it’s been very difficult for projects to
actually you know keep the runway that they’ve needed not suddenly find that
their runway shrunk by 90 percent and you know as an organization has it been
a difficult process most people have you know found it quite difficult over the
last year especially to make sure that goals are achieved but things are you
know managed in a way that works I think we’ve had a different set of problems in
terms of funding in the sense that if you have a large Treasury the way that
tezo’s does you have to deploy properly and especially being decentralized up
checking that means there’s numerous
organizations that are putting in for grants for various requests the other
issue is most of these projects are going to be working on layer 2 which is
going to be the smart contract it’s going to be the applications where as
we’re trying to amend layer 1 and that’s going to that takes up a lot of time and
effort because as it’s evolving we’re also introducing a roto we’re also
changing the underlying code that others are using so it’s really tricky and you
could create like an educational course which is one of the things we’ve done in
the past but now we have to refresh that material to better reflect this the
current state of the protocol so it’s been an interesting experiment always
plenty to to keep you occupied I would imagine but I’m amazed at how quick this
year has gone as well we’re like literally in October now literally about
to head into 2020 and before long we’ll be calling John McAfee up to see if he’s
willing to do his bet live on television or not but I guess it was gonna be some
interesting times ahead on that when we actually filmed in last year in Malta
and had a quite an interesting kind of our chat with him which is fun but just
the general kind of market view general ad do you take much notice of where the
markets going or are you more interested in the actual technologies I’m always
watching the market because I’m fascinated by the macro
and so I feel like we’ve actually hit a sort of a comfort comfortable area where
there’s not a great deal of downside in that we know that these digital assets
are going to be very important for the future but we’re still unsure of how the
chips are going to fall and with the emerging you know defy economies and
staking taking over the what once was the majority of proof-of-work projects
it’s interesting to see it all evolve but I see more news leaning towards the
the future is bright so it it depends on how long your time scale is yeah I mean
I think there was one of the things we’re finding now is we’re going back
and reenter viewing all the people that we interviewed in 2017 when you know a
lot of them are driving around in you know garish Lamborghinis and it’s a very
different kind of mentality now but I think a lot of people have said look we
still believe in this technology but we realized now we were naive to think that
in two or three years time this was going to change the world and this is
gonna take you know a decade plus in order to do it do you do you sort of
share that sentiment yes that’s why you know we fly economy and we take the
train because we know that we have not pragmatic it historically open-source
software has not been well funded so even with a large Treasury you have to
be very mindful the fact that we need to invest in research and development
projects that are sometimes going to take years so I’m hoping to see it
develop over the next few years into at least the basis for a new emergent
internet and you know a really functional currency system yeah well
it’s gonna be a long road for sure but maybe we can get you back on somewhere
down the line and we can do a bit of a catch-up
I would love to great well look thanks for taking the time to come on today and
obviously you know there’s plenty of information about tasers out there but
if people do want to find out more where’s the best place to actually get
the skinny the best place to go is Tesla’s calm and you can also your
community website at tezo’s Commons org great well thanks for
taking the time Sean and we’ll catch up soon thank you that’s all folks thanks
for joining us again for another week of blog tastic block crypto foolery another
fabulous week let us know what you want on the show next week who you want us to
talk to we do value your opinion and you being part of the new kids family also
we’ve been bringing the news to you via crypto daily for the last sort of two
shows yes no is this a good thing is it a bad thing do we care
comment down below and yeah until we see you next week all you need to remember
is you’ve been chained you’ve been blocked chained

  1. Happy Friday all. Don't forget to show us some love with a like , subscribe or comment. Go on …you know you want to 🙂

  2. Yo New Kids, another brilliant video as always. Even if all of your guests were terrible you 2 would make it worth watching. I genuinely can't understand why you don't have at least 100k subscribers.

    Craig Cobb from Trader Cobb (who you interviewed in the past I believe) is hosting a London training seminar tomorrow, which I will be at. And He'll also be at the CC forum. Are you New Kids going to be attending the CC forum at all?

  3. Thanks for your updates! Forks are like different currencies today. Don't see the problem. At least each of them have a fixed supply. We need choice. The best project will survive.

  4. Blockchain is absolutely the way of the future just not sure what coins or form that will be. Hopefully real decentralized coins will stay on top rather than corporate coins.

  5. Sorry but there is just one Bitcoin because all the miners mine it. The forks of Bitcoin are a sort of safety net.
    These Bitcoins have not the hashrate of the no. one but if the actual Bitcoin breakes the miners can turn to BCH, BTG and so on and rise a new Bitcoin. There will allways be just one, the one the miners support.

  6. hey guys, thought you might be interested in the Divi Project. You great a real good return on a master node, and it's 1 click to set up a cloud service. Worth checking out

  7. Comment regarding the lady you interviewed who said Bitcoin is not scarce because you can fork it.

    Here is a parallel question “which metal is the most precious metal and why?”.
    I think the answer to that is the same answer to the Bitcoin question.

    The most precious metal is the one with the highest price, market cap and trading volume. Those are metrics that indicate how the market is ‘voting’ with their money.

    You can do the same with the various Bitcoin forks. Which one has the highest price, market cap, trading volume and hash rate?

  8. veritaseum could very well go to zero — cliff highs predictions are half baked — the powers that are will not allow veri to flourish.
