About Us

Dale Dickins and Peter Robertson have a weekly chat from Melbourne's Bitcoin Technology Center in Southbank. They introduce different people to include listeners in what's happening in cryptocurrencies, who's doing what and what's going on. This technology is sometimes difficult to keep up with as it spreads around the planet, and they think it's important to stay tuned to global and local developments.

Episode 31: Blockchain - Hype, Standards and Regulation

This is our first CryptoGoss since September 2016. We had an unscheduled hiatus due to my (Peter's) health issues which resulted in me being unable to speak for more than a couple of minutes without coughing, unconducive to podcast recording. Fortunately, things have taken a turn for the better and we're confident of a strong podcasting season in 2017 at Crypto Studios, Blockchain Centre, Level 1, 89 - 91 City Road, Southbank, Victoria, 3006. This episode, we were fortunate to catch up with Fran Strajner, CEO and founder of BraveNewCoin.com, on one of his lightning visits to Melbourne. With the benefit of Fran's unique perspective, we discussed: - Standards Australia and international standards for blockchain technology http://bravenewcoin.com/news/australia-to-lead-iso-blockchain-standards-endeavor/ - Crypto Regulation - The Blockchain Hype Cycle - Automation, iOT, Surveillance and Privacy - The upcoming SEC decision in the US re the Winklevoss ETF application - The bitcoin price M...

Ep 28 The DAO - Shattering Trust?

In this episode of Cryptogoss Katherine Noall and Peter Robertson speak with Fran Strajnar, CEO and co-founder of Brave New Coin, a data and research company focused on the Blockchain and Digital Equities industry. Fran helps us tease out some of the thorny issues around the DAO “attack” and what this might mean for the world's view on Ethereum and blockchain technologies as general. Fran was also able to share some insights on views held at the big end of town that he gathered from the recent Melbourne Blockchain Summit http://www.blockchainsummit.com.au/. We gained some further understandings of what private blockchains might actually turn out to be in practice and how there are cases where this might make sense, although it was also acknowledged that a lot of corporate activity involving the "B" word might be more spin for appearances than substance on the ground. Finally, we turned to the topic of "what will the browser for the blockchain look like" as a basis for speculating ...

Fermat.org has big dreams of a bright crypto future. Warwick talks trading. Miami is known for good looking people, so it's no surprise you can get a butt lift with bitcoin in the glossy city. 2:15 http://www.fermat.org/ 3:58 A Florida man sells bitcoin to undercover agents, and is looking at jail time.

Ep #25 #TeamSatoshi

Warwick, Scott and Dale take the mics today while Peter recovers from the flu. Craig Wright makes the news again, Scott and Warwick are swinging on the issue "he's part of many" #TeamSatoshi "there's a little bit of bitcoin in all of us". We cover the very basics of the story. #VoteFlux get another mention, because we love them... and as Scott says "besides politicians don't want to be making decisions anyway", we'll do the work for them. Hot topics of the week Ethereum, TOR, encryption and Australia is hot on the VPN trail. We discuss tracking and illegal activity "where does the madness stop?" We close off with updates on OpenBazaar, and what's happening in Melbourne's Bitcoin Technology Center.

Special # 1: Electronic Voting Systems and the Blockchain

In this special episode, Scott Phillips, Grant Lenaarts and Peter Robertson discuss the present and future of electronic voting systems with Dr. Vanessa Teague, Senior Lecturer, Dept. of Computing and Information Systems at the University of Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. Dr. Teague's work has included detailed studies of two instances where electronic voting systems have been used in Australia, and the news isn't always good. It turns out that online voting systems delivering privacy, transparency and verifiable results aren't that easy to create and operate. What are the problems, can they be solved, and is there a role for the blockchain?
