The Monero Monitor Podcast

Today's episode is shorter than normal. I won't be interviewing anyone or talking about another project. Instead, this episode focuses on the podcast itself. I talk about what I'm trying to do with the show, some assumptions I make about you my listeners, and where I hope this podcast fits into the space. I also offer some thoughts on how we all should evaluate the space we find ourselves in today, with ICOs and hype aplenty.   Songs in the show are "Little ICO" (thanks @tradewithdave and @mikeinspace) and "Pumpers Pumpin'".   Music featured in the show is "The Grind" by Justin Maher...

I travelled to Coin Center in DC to talk with Jerry Brito and Peter Van Valkenburgh about the regulatory environment and congressional attitudes towards privacy-centric crypto projects. We talk about the Coinbase/IRS John Doe summons and the ULC's model state law. Then we talk about financial surveillance law and how privacy projects fit in the US regulatory environment, distinguishing between open and closed blockchains, and how the Monero community might be able to get involved in Coin Center's advocacy.

Today, I talk with the CEO of a company that to date has taken much more the latter strategy, Changelly. At over two years old, and over a year open to the general public, Changelly is a bit like ShapeShift, though has some notable differences. Konstantin Gladych and I sat down and chatted for a while about his company, their various partners and affiliates, growing...
