In “Streaming Money,” Andreas guides the audience through a future where money acquires a new time dimension. Do you struggle with the temptation to go on spending sprees? What if you could render your money unspendable for a period of time? In the last episode, “Forkology,” he talked about what happens when there are rifts in consensus. Now he explores the implications of existing scripting capabilities in Bitcoin, and how those capabilities will expand even further with a second-layer protocol called the Lightning Network — more than a year before it would even go live on testnet in 2017!
This talk took place on October 19th 2016 during the Bitcoin Wednesday Meetup at the Eye Film Museum in Amsterdam, the Netherlands.
This series is called ‘Unscrypted’ for a reason: all of Andreas’ talks are performed without slides or notes. You can find any necessary corrections and clarifications in the podcast description.
Credits: The narration for this episode was done by Stephanie Murphy. Production support from Erica and Jessica. Video editing by Adrian Tano. Sound editing by Dimitris Angelidis of Sampi Media. Logo design by Davi Barker. The music is called “Unbounded” by Orfan.
