Bitcoin recently experienced a hard fork, which resulted in ‘bitcoin classic’, if you will, and Bitcoin Cash. This was because of Segwit. Now there’s Segwit2X coming up and the possibility to have perhaps another form of bitcoin (i.e., there will be three different versions of bitcoin out to trade and use).
To explain all this, we needed to bring an expert in. Ryan Charles is the co-founder and CEO of Yours.org. Ryan’s been involved in the blockchain industry since 2011. He has worked as an engineer at BitPay and BitGo, and was cryptocurrency engineer of Reddit from 2014-2015. As a proponent of Bitcoin Cash, Ryan explains to us the intricacies of what’s happening with bitcoin.
To help us with that, I’ve invited Nako Mbelle, one of our new co-hosts, who will be having this illuminating chat with Ryan.
You can listen to more episodes of Around the Coin, and other fintech shows, on the BankNXT podcast page. Enjoy!
