Bitsquare is an open source, completely decentralized bitcoin exchange. Founder and developer, Manfred Karrer, discusses his project and his ideals with Ethan Wilding and guest host, Hai Nguyen. Bitsquare is based on the concept of “no single point of failure” and decentralization. Karrer also discusses the concept of peer-to-peer arbitration.
Andrew Lee of purse.io answers questions partially sourced from the bitcoin community. Purse.io’s model of selling Amazon giftcards for bitcoins is both controversial and exciting for people who want to buy bitcoins without going through the lengthy verification processes associated with exchanges. It also facilitates purchases through Amazon at a discount for people who want to shop with bitcoin. The DTL audience sent in some hard-hitting questions, and Andrew Lee has promised to answer them “head-on.”
Other guests this week will include Gerald Cotten of the Canadian exchange, QuadricaCX, as well as Mitchell Callahan, founder of Saucal, a marketing and brand development company that integrates bitcoin into its clients’ growth strategies.
