Episode #13 The Patent Trolls

Dec. 7, 2015

Warwick, Peter and our foreign correspondent Leo in Taiwan talk about why Paypal was banned in Taiwan and the media's spin on legality of Bitcoin there. Even though they don't sound so happy about Ebay and Paypal's patents for cryptocurrency, they're kind of happy to speak about reputation systems being created on blockchain technology. "Ebay could become completely irrelevant when OpenBazaar starts" bold claim from Leo. In the second half Dale interviews Nicholas, TJ, Steve and ParthDave who just completed a semester at Melbourne's Bitcoin Technology Center. They were totally green when they started, had minimal knowledge of cryptocurrencies and learned a lot about privacy. Hear what they have to say about their experience.
