Pushing Boundaries In Bitcoin – A Conversation with Anypay CEO Steven Zeiler

Bitcoin heretics Vin Armani and Steven Zeiler talk candidly in a live-recorded interview about the new types of businesses that bitcoin makes possible. Vin is the Founder and CEO of CoinText, and Steven is the founder and CEO of Anypay. Both are businesses made possible by the innovation of programmable money. Specifically, they are "non-custodial financial services" businesses. The conversation is light and fun and for a while focusses on getting real nightclubs into space and the challenges that come with zero gravity experiences.  Vin gets Steven to dive deep into his personal journey from early Bitcoin OG working at a small startup that would eventually become Ripple, a major player in the crypto economy, to becoming an entrepreneur and founding his own company, Anypay. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X33IohENcyQ Some notable comments on this video [...]

“SHH!” – Shielded Zcash at retail is Finally A Reality

World's First Retail Purchase with Encrypted Zcash, Portsmouth, NH 2017 A girl with dreadlocks and wearing cyberpunk clothes walked into the Bitcoin Shoppe with a laptop under her arm. It was the fall of 2017, and Portsmouth, New Hampshire was teaming with crypto tourists. She picked out a laser-cut "Live Free or Die" wooden wall plaque and a "Legalize Gay Marijuana" bumper sticker. The plan was to pay for the items with shielded Zcash using Anypay. It took a whole minute on a computer dedicating 8GB of its RAM just to computing and producing the transaction signature. Once broadcast, Anypay picked it up in seconds. The screen turned green and produced that beloved "PAID ✔" message. Proof of concept. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hQ8RbjppX9w One crypto winter later, the technology emerged to produce Zcash shielded transactions on [...]

Inside the Longest Running Bitcoin Meetup in the World (world, world, world…)

These guys have been getting together every Sunday for almost a decade. They are the secret elite. But inside, all is quite mundane. No lambos parked outside, no flashy suits or caviar. Just some guys chomping down on wings and knocking back a few beers, and then paying with bitcoin. What, you expected something else? Here's what you can learn from them. "Just let me know when you're ready to pay, and I'll bring the iPad over." Ipull into the bar an hour early. Right away something feels different about this place. Every car in the parking lot is covered in bumper stickers. "Ron Paul 2012" "Yes, I am THAT Libertarian" "Vermin Supreme 2016" "Liberty Radio Network" "PorcFest 2018" "Free State Project" "Live Free or Die" "Liberty In Our Lifetime" "I am [...]

6-Hour Coffee, Or: “How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love Instant Send”

This Coffee Is Delicious! Is It Double-Spend Free? TL;DR: "Instant Send" is a feature in Dash that gives you confidence in seconds that your payment is good without waiting minutes or hours for confirmation. “Let’s just open up this bitcoin wallet, and — ”  There I was, standing with drooping, glazed-eyes, waiting in line at my local bitcoin-accepting coffee shop. As my stomach gurgled its demands, I prepared my phone for payment. Uh oh. What’s this?  My last bitcoin transaction still hasn’t confirmed? How could that be, it was 6 hours ago!  Oh, no. Will my payment at this coffee shop even work? How long will I have to wait before they give me the coffee, or will the girl behind the counter just hand it to me while she rolls her [...]
