    ##On Todays Episode of Let's Talk Bitcoin... Adam B. Levine explores AB1489 or "The California Bitlicense" and AB953 "or The California Stablecoin Cannabis Taxation Bill" through a series of short interviews on various sides of the issues. First, we speak to Colin Gallagher, a longtime community member in California who shares his concerns about the process and substance of both the bills we're discussing today. Next, Peter Van Valkenburgh joins us from Coincenter for his perspective on why the California Bitlicense is a de-regulating bill, why they help craft good legislation for those states who want it, and more. We close today's show with Alexandra Medina, Mayor of Emeryville, California, executive director of BlockAdvocacy.org and a relative newcomer to Bitcoin. Ally tells us what AB953 and the option to remit taxes in stablecoins could mean to the cash-rich but unbankable California Cannabis industry. --- Tip LTB:1FZGD64BA7B9GdwDhGGGF92amt9X6VH38K or Via the Lightning Network at tipltb.tokenly.com/ --- Shownotes: AB1489 (CA Bitlicense): https://leginfo.legislature.ca.gov/faces/billTextClient.xhtml?bill_id=201920200AB1489 Versions in other states: Nevada's SB195: https://legiscan.com/NV/bill/SB195/2019 Oklahoma's HB1954: https://legiscan.com/OK/bill/HB1954/2019 Hawaii's SB250 https://legiscan.com/HI/bill/SB250/2019 Hawaii's HB70 https://legiscan.com/HI/bill/HB70/2019 AB953 (Stablecoins/Cannabis) https://leginfo.legislature.ca.gov/faces/billNavClient.xhtml?bill_id=201920200AB953 Colin's Reddit Thread: https://www.reddit.com/r/Bitcoin/comments/aupvig/time_to_fire_up_a_million_angry_kitt3hs_again/ https://CoinCenter.org https://Blockadvocacy.org --- Thanks for listening to this episode of Let's Talk Bitcoin, content for today's show was provided by Colin Gallagher, Peter Van Valkenburgh, Alexandra Medina, and Adam B.

    ##On Todays Episode of Let's Talk Bitcoin... Stephanie Murphy, Andreas Antonopoulos, and Adam B. Levine sit down for part two of our fresh look at the nascent but rapidly improving Lightning Network. Selections from Episode 390 Curated and Transcribed by https://twitter.com/Sesame4Bitcoins --- Lightning Network Capacity Adam B. Levine: Right now in the Lightning Network, you can only make transactions and hold value up to a certain size. Andreas, why is that? Andreas Antonopolous: It's to discourage people from putting too much money into something that was experimental, and also trying to do payments that are too big for most routes. The limit per payment is 4 million Satoshis (0.04 Bitcoin). The channel capacity maximum is 16.7 million Satoshis. You can create a channel for 16 million Satoshis and you can transmit payments of about 1/4 its total capacity at a time in each direction. That just prevents people from trying to use Lightning today for the types of payments that are probably best-kept on-chain. Adam B. Levine: Do you see the Lightning Network being used for larger transactions like the traditional Bitcoin network? Andreas Antonopolous: Eventually yes. Eventually there's no reason why you wouldn't have your entire hot wallet in Lightning channels, and the only funds that are not in Lightning channels are cold storage funds. I see it eventually having much bigger transactions - it can span the entire range from tiny to very big. ...Visit the shownotes for this episode at LetsTalkBitcoin.com for more selected excerpts --- Lightning Stats: https://1ml.com/ Article quoted: https://www.theblockcrypto.com/2019/01/18/from-reckless-to-wumbology-lightning-networks-infrastructural-build-out/ Eclair (https://acinq.co/) ZAP (https://zap.jackmallers.com/) Blue Wallet (https://bluewallet.io/) Casa Node (https://store.casa/lightning-node/) --- Tip LTB:1FZGD64BA7B9GdwDhGGGF92amt9X6VH38K or Via the Lightning Network at tipltb.tokenly.com/ --- Thanks for listening to this episode of Let's Talk Bitcoin, content for today's show was provided by Andreas Antonopoulos, Stephanie Murphy, Jonathan Mohan, and Adam B.

    ##On Todays Episode of Let's Talk Bitcoin... Andreas M. Antonopoulos and Stephanie Murphy join Adam B. Levine for an in-depth discussion on the ups and downs of consensus reality and the two "big" methods (Proof of Work and Proof of Stake) which we use to define it. Topic 1: Proof of Stake and Proof of Work Discussion Topic 2: Ethereum Update and Upgrade Path --- Partial transcript from about 35 minutes in... ANDREAS M. ANTONOPOULOS: "The problem with proof of work as a system is that it's so poorly understood and it's very difficult to see what benefits it offers.... Immutability and resistance against state level colluding actors are benefits you don't really see until somebody tries to attack them. The fact that they don't attack them, in bitcoin, is not something you can celebrate because it's like proving a negative. Another way to put it is that no one really pays attention to a surgeon until their patients start dying. It's very difficult to say 'look at how good I am because none of my patients have died lately', but it's very easy to point to the surgeon famous for performing an operation with the 300% mortality rate. He did an amputation in 25 seconds, during which he managed to also amputate some of the fingers of one of his surgery assistants... And it was such a horrific scene that one of the audience members died from shock. Then the patient and the assistant died from sepsis days later, making it the only surgery with 300% mortality rate... Now, you can point to that and say "That's not a good surgeon" but it's very difficult to look at a surgeon and say "Well, nobody's died yet so that's a good surgeon". This is a general problem with security, because security working means that nothing bad happened. And the absence of something bad happening is not a provable thing. SO you can say that Bitcoin is secure. How do you know? well, it's hasn't been successfully attacked yet. Could it be successfully attacked? Could someone amass 51%? And we can point to examples of smaller systems which have been attacked like Classic Recently, but the problem is it's really hard to see that value. Same thing with immutability... --- Tip LTB:1FZGD64BA7B9GdwDhGGGF92amt9X6VH38K or Via the Lightning Network at tipltb.tokenly.com/ --- Thanks for listening to this episode of Let's Talk Bitcoin, content for todays show was provided by Andreas Antonopoulos, Stephanie Murphy and Adam B.
