Inside the Silk Road Trial | Bitcoin Talk Show

Live Update from the Silk Road Trial | World Crypto Network

Published by:

At the conclusion of day 1 of the Ross Ulbricht Trial, John Bush gives a live recap of what went down inside the courthouse. I livestreamed from my phone for the World Crypto Network and also uploaded high quality videos on my youtube channel.

Livestream:

Day 1, Recap Part 1:

Day 1, Recap Part 2:

Unfortunately, this video is all that I captured. The judge threatened to sequester the jury if demonstrations continued outside the courthouse, and Lyn Ulbricht (Ross’ mom) asked me to stop. So I went home. Sad.

Thomas and DerrickJ Argue Net Neutrality | Bitcoin Talk Show #25 | Sept 10, 2014

In this episode, Thomas Hunt and Derrick J argue over Net Neutrality! We also talk about Ross Ulbricht and Andrew Jones of the Silk Road arrests, plus PayPal integration with bitcoin and Apple’s new mobile payments platform.

The crux of my position regarding Net Neutrality is: I’m against government regulating, or limiting, what ISPs can offer their customers. If there are regulators, ISPs will bribe them. If there is no regulator, the only people to bribe are the customers.

Lords (http://bitcoinnotbombs.com), Kristov Atlas (http://anonymousbitcoinbook.com/), and Thomas Hunt (http://madbitcoins.com).

THIS WEEK:
—————————-

Issue 1 — Wikipedia unsure about Bitcoin Donations — This just makes no sense. Much like the EFF who years ago was “unsure” about Bitcoin, so they refused their donations, only to accept them later when they were much more valuable. Should Wikipedia accept Bitcoin Donations? Play devil’s advocate, is there any reason for them to refuse? Does this make any sense? —

Issue 2 — Amazon says No to Bitcoin, Walmart says No to Gyft — Tough week for Bitcoin and retail as Gyft had to retract their Walmart gift card service and Amazon flat out said no, citing “lack of customer demand”. Walmart is famously suing Visa over swipe fees and Amazon used to be a technology company — why would they both — say No to Bitcoin?

Issue 3 — Mainstream Media wakes up to Szabo lingustic evidence story. The Who is Satoshi Nakamoto story is back again, the media will never give this one up. This time they’ve got Nick Szabo, who at the very least participated in the white paper — but does that make him Satoshi Nakamoto? Does the media have their man?

Issue 4 — Dogecon, Gas Stations should accept Bitcoin and Ron Paul doesn’t think Bitcoin is “real money” — What’s more exciting for Bitcoin? The Dogecon — the world’s first alt coin convention going off Next Friday April 25th in San Francisco — Gas Stations that should accept Bitcoin — especially given the excellent development of the Bitcoin accepting Gas Pump by hero engineer Andy Schroder — or Ron Paul, the old goldbug who doesn’t get it. The Revolution he always dreamed of right at hand and he can’t understand it because he’s too old to email. — Ron, the Doge or Gas Stations Should Accept Bitcoin, which is a more exciting development for Bitcoin? —
