This week a Bitcoin Bloodbath! A gigantic battle inside the Bitcoin Cash community with a hard fork between titans as Roger Ver/Bitmain versus Craig Wright (the guy who claims to be Satoshi Nakamoto). Lots of uncertainty and investors are worried with as result that the whole crypto market plunged.

We talked about this yesterday at the 1st anniversary of Bitcoin Magazine. Justin Bons (founder Cybercapital) thinks it’s a very important day because the Bitcoin blockchain is saved & the crooks are defeated! He argues bitcoin is a scam and Bitcoin cash is the most important coin.

Investor Peter Moricz, known for his opinionated views, explains this bloody wednesday.

I also talked to Chris Dawe of Effect.AI who hosted the 1 year anniversary of Bitcoin Magazine. What is Effect.AI?

Dutch:

Bij de Bitcoin Magazine verjaardag praatte ik ook met Didi Taihuttu die wereldberoemd is omdat hij al zijn bezittingen, inclusief zijn huis en speelgoed van zijn kinderen, had verkocht om te investeren in cryptomunten. Hoe zat dat eigenlijk?

En Bram Ceelen ging van marinier naar oprichter van cryptohandelsplatform Anycoindirect. Hij vertelt hoe dat was:

Ook vroeg ik de Nederlandse Bitcoin Babe Madelon Vos naar de diepe crisis. Wat geeft zij als oorzaak?

Tot slot praat ik met de oprichter van Bitcoin Magazine Wessel Simons en vraag ik hem wie hij in het afgelopen jaar het meest interessant vond:

Then the future of manufacturing & smart city! Is it possible to 3D print a metal bridge? Well, MX3D printed a 12 meter long stainless steel bridge, which will be crossing an Amsterdam canal in the red light district. This bridge is smart and aware and is equipped with lots of Internet-Of-Things sensors. How do you 3D print a bridge like that and why does it need to be smart? Are cameras with face recognition not better? Alec Shuldiner explains his vision to go from one smart bridge to a smart city with respect for privacy.

Every few years I talk to Harold Goddijn, the CEO of TomTom. He is controlling a rollercoaster! In part 1 we talk about the current business, namely sharply declining device sales, selling the hugely successful telematics division, growing automotive sales and the core mapping group. Next week we will discuss the future of the company and what role they play in autonomous driving revolution.

 Now Dutch: Bij de Bitcoin Magazine verjaardag praatte ik ook met Didi Taihuttu die wereldberoemd is omdat hij al zijn bezittingen, inclusief zijn huis en speelgoed van zijn kinderen, had verkocht om te investeren in cryptomunten. Hoe zat dat eigenlijk? En Bram Ceelen ging van marinier naar oprichter van cryptohandelsplatform Anycoindirect. Ook vroeg ik de Nederlandse Bitcoin Babe Madelon Vos naar de diepe crisis & de oprichter van Bitcoin Magazine Wessel Simons wie hij in het afgelopen jaar het meest interessant vond. Bekijk de interviews hier.

Maar ook in de traditionele geldindustrie zijn er interessante mensen: Het familie bedrijf CCV heeft met 120.000 retail klanten en 200.000 pin terminals een marktaandeel van 60%. Wat is het verhaal van dit bedrijf uit Arnhem? Ik vroeg het aan de baas Mevrouw PIN Enny van de Velden. Waarom begon haar vader, die accountant was, dit bedrijf? En was zij een logische kandidaat om het bedrijf te leiden? Wat zijn hun internationale plannen? Waarom gaan de pin terminals verdwijnen?

Ik liep ook Oud-Directeur ANWB Guido van Woerkom tegen het lijf bij het PIN event. Guido is nu voorzitter van Detailhandel Nederland. Ik vraag hem naar zijn mening over de voortgang in het elektrisch rijden. Hij vindt dat de ANWB daar veel steviger aan moet trekken en hij wacht zelf op zijn Tesla Model 3!

In China zie je nu 5 miljoen LSEVs, Low speed elektrische auto’s die je daar vanaf €1.000 kunt krijgen. In Nederland hebben we de Birò, de kleinste EV voor €5 per dag! Ik interview CEO Pieter Vermeer die 1000 stuks naar Nederland haalde. Hoe begon het? Wat zijn de specs van deze mini EV die je op de stoep kan parkeren? Voelt hij de irritatie van het publiek al?

Ik ben een fan van Alexander Rinnooy Kan en naar aanleiding van zijn nieuwe boek “Bordjes Duiken: Ervaringen van een Optimist” heb ik een uitgebreid gesprek met een man die een waanzinnige carrière heeft. Nu Deel 1: Van Wetenschapper tot Bestuurder Erasmus Universiteit. In Deel 2-5 hebben we het over zijn periode als hoogste baas bij VNO-NCW en het poldermodel, de aankomende crisis in zijn tijd als ING Bankier en lid van de Raad van Bestuur, vervolgens de SER Periode en tot slot de periode van nu als professor en politicus in de Eerste Kamer.

Bitcoin Cash vs Bitcoin Core

Everyone is always talking about Bitcoin, but Bitcoin Cash just had it’s first Europan Hackathon in Amsterdam organized by BTC.com. There were lots of people there who think Bitcoin Cash is the original Bitcoin and that it’s the TRUE realization of Satatoshi Nakamoto’s vision. I interviewed some of the main Bitcoin Cash developers and asked them why. Also there’s a Bitcoin Cash hard fork scheduled every six months and there is one coming up soon. What does this mean and why do they do it?

Lead & Senior Bitcoin Cash Developers

I interviewed Amaury Séchet who is the Lead Developer Bitcoin Cash ABC. Why Bitcoin Cash instead of Bitcoin Core? Why is there a scheduled Hard Fork every 6 months? And what does he think of the hackathon and the projects?

Gabriel Cardona is senior developer Bitcoin Cash at Bitcoin.com. Why is he a BCH-believer and how is it different from the “normal” Bitcoin?

Bitcoin Cash Association

I interviewed Paul Wasensteiner of the Bitcoin Cash Association. What is this association? And why Bitcoin Cash, not the “normal” Bitcoin Core? The Bitcoin Cash Association was formed in a Bitcoin Cash chat group in 2017. It was started by a simple request to the community to crowdfund a short promo video for Bitcoin Cash. The outpouring of support across the industry was phenomenal, and it became crystal clear that there was a need for an organisation to take on this role permanently.

CoinSpice – Bitcoin Cash Media

I interviewed Mike Malley of CoinSpice. CoinSpice is a media organization/news site that aims to advance Bitcoin Cash as a viable payment method for everyone in the world. Also asking Mike, why Bitcoin Cash? And what does his platform do to promote BCH?

 

Chief Blockchain Officer in the UK

At the CC-Forum Blockchain Conference people discussed how to restructure Britain after and the financial system after the Brexit. I talked to a member of parliament Eddie Hughes who asks for a Chief Blockchain Officer and wants a prominent role in the new UK system. Talk of the town was the collapse of ICO’s and the coming STO Security Tokens Offering: shares on the Blockchain. Why is he interested? 20% of his voters have identity problems. This is the last budget day of the UK inside Europe! Never spoil a good crisis. What does he expect of the budget and does blockchain innovation have more chance because of the Brexit? Interesting talk!

Why CC-FORUM is a great conference

Why does Robyn Friedman (Chief Blockchain Officer of GameFaceLabs) who worked 10 years in the city on the most difficult complex financial products thinks CC-Forum is a great relevant conference? She explains the current way that assets are virtualized in the financial industry and how it will change the industry. She currently creates rules for a new VR/AR world which is 100% different. Why did she makes that change?

 

 

 

 

What do you do with 60 crypto miners that take up so much energy to create crypto currencies, but at the same time you also don’t want to waste the energy? Simple, you just place those miners at a tomato greenhouse! I am partner in a company called Greenmine and we are on a mission to make this a sustainable operations. We have a container where all the miners are stored under oil and the heat is used to grow tomato’s! 95% of the electricity used by miners is generated into heat and we put that heat directly into the heating system of the glass houses to help the tomatoes grow faster. This makes it the most sustainable mining operation. How does it look like? Take a look at the installation!
