What are some of your favorite blockchain projects?
What is the best article / book to convert people from the "Bitcoin is Bad, Blockchain is good" phase?
Hi, Jimmy! Love to attend your talk in Blockchain Academy/SP.
What do you think about PoW change proposal? Do you see risk in the current mining hashrate centralization?
What do you think about "any amount of bitcoin" bet by Lubin? 😀 Why do you think you will win (seriously)?
Jimmy what you think about "Private Blockchain". Projects like Hyperledger, Exonum and so on. A lot of crypto/blockchain enthusiast are very sceptical about this and it's really interesting what you think about it. I can definitely see the scenarios where this kind of Frameworks and Libraries will be suitable.
- Supply chain
- Public sector
- Business network
- Health records management and so on.
Thanks in advance.

Are there many people adopting your bip 176 into wallets or the bitcoin ecosystem in general since it got merged in dec. 2017? I like the idea especially since lightning network is up and running with similar amounts.

2) Do you envision any type of insurer in the event of self-banking displacing traditional banks? Do you think there will be insurance for losing private keys, etc.?
What I dont understand.... what is the difference in Tether to any other fintech except they handle crypto and we can "see" what they do. When trim it down the public ledger is even extreme transparent compared to any other company. In my opinion it is not perfect of course but whats the difference or scam compared to any other fintech?
What questions should startups ask themselves before considering to use blockchain?
Thanks for the AMA Jimmy. Sorry if my question is a bit long winded.
I have some background in programming and also in mathematics (having studied it in college). Unfortunately I don't have experience with the most used/useful programming languages in the Bitcoin space, and I also don't think my mathematics/cryptography skills are quite strong enough to contribute meaningfully to anything important.
Do you think it would be better to try and find a graduate program at the intersection of math, CS, and Bitcoin, or to try to find a job where mentorship and growth are possible in these skills? Do you think such jobs/companies exist?
Hi, I received a notification that you answered my questions, but I can't see that answers.
WOW Jimmy! Thanks for the AMA.
What's your take on the current Ethereum eco-system apps? Do you think it's the future?
What past event do you think was the most detrimental to the growth / progress of the crypto space?
1) Apart from currency, books and art seem like entities in much need of censorship resistance from governments (to avoid Fahrenheit-451 scenarios). Is this feasible using the blockchain? How could one go about scaling such a large amount of data? Do storage coins fulfill this role?
2) When are you coming to Mexico?
Hey Jimmy, I know you're not a fan of the blockchain wallet. Is there any Bitcoin wallet you could recommend for an Android phone?
Hi again! Do you know how to code in any programming languages well? If yes, please list them here. Thanks again :) !
In regards to the global economy, what role do you see Bitcoin playing in 5, 10, and 50 years from now?
Will lightening in Bitcoin be able to incorporate in mobile apps for payment in future? How will lightening affect the network security and transactions speed?
How does the “dirty” bitcoin flagging work exactly? Can a government or authority create a system that flags someone’s or most bitcoin as “dirty”, so exchanges and places will reject it and it becomes unusable?
How would you secure best an app needing some running btc client - docker & NGinx as a reverse proxy?
What do you think about ICOs in general? Which type of companies should do the ICO?
If gold was not used on electronics, jewelry, etc, and instead only used as a store of value; will gold be a better store of value?
You recently said that from the blockchain ecosystem only Bitcoin will survive and that Bitcoin is the single good use of Blockchain. Why do you think that? And how does this affect how Blockchain Capital invests its money in Blockchain related projects? Do you invest only in Bitcoin related projects?
Hello Jimmy, what do think about building self-sovereign identity systems on the blockchain? Would you consider it a promising potential application of blockchain tech outside of crypto?
Hey Jimmy, where exactly did you learn about Cryptocurrencies and the like? Just Curious :)
What is the best resource or course for a hopeful programmer to get started. 0 previous skills
Do 2nd layer solutions to scaling make hard forks harder on the 1st layer. (This Q was asked to Andreas)
Regards Martin C.
In Mexico we are ready to launch the first Mexican StableCoin fixed in $1 peso What do you think about it?
How do you feel about the inequality within crypto? Will a protocol be able to get to a multi-trillion dollar valuation if the founders/foundations take 15% right off the bat, meaning would you be okay with people being multi-billionaires/trillionaires? Same thing can be said about bitcoin, does satoshi owning 1 million BTC raise any concern?
Is there a way to protect old pre 2012 p2pk addresses (early mining rewards for example) from future quantum computers which are potentially capable of accessing those funds? Assuming bitcoin is worth a lot more in the future, a single entity getting access to all "burned" bitcoin from back then can't be a good thing. Is this even a threat at all in your opinion?
