CoinGeek TV is back! – Geek corner


CoinGeek TV has done it again! The BSV Global Blockchain Convention (GBC) proved to be an action-packed and insightful three-day event, with record numbers of ticket sales, attendees and online streamers. The live stream on the sidelines is CoinGeek TV with hosts Kurt Wuckert Jr. and Patrick Thompson, plus a stellar guest list.

On the first day, Kurt is joined by a distinguished guest, the founder of the future innovation summit and chairman of the board of directors of the private practice of Sheikh Saqr Bin Mohamed Al Qasimi, Adnan Al Noorani. In a brief interview, the representative of the royal family said that he was honored to be part of the GBC and to witness masterminds working in the blockchain space. Mr. Noorani’s presence is extremely valuable to GBC and is seen as a big win for the BSV community.

Two members of the BSV ecosystem then joined Kurt. First, Jad Wahab, Engineering Director of the Bitcoin Association. He discussed the current professional climate at the Bitcoin Association, saying, “we want to learn more about what’s happened in the past, we want to be more open, get more industry input, and move forward at a much faster pace. He also commented on the company’s rebranding, noting that “it’s a global system and it doesn’t need to have the same narrative everywhere…they want to hammer home the message that the payment side is just one use case of the blockchain”.

Jad also took the opportunity to discuss LiteClient, a toolkit for developers that aims to provide faster payments and better communications for simplified payments. For its part, LiteClient is extremely beneficial in a region like the Middle East.

“It is much easier to sell in this part of the region, especially after the financial crisis in Lebanon, people having problems with remittances, sending money, currency devaluation and corruption . Blockchain can help with transparency,” he says.

As Raheel explains, the market capitalization of NFTs is currently close to $3 billion and is expected to grow to $13.5 billion over the next five years. Raheel wants in on the movement, saying, “I think it’s an unstoppable train and we should grab it immediately and go with a flow.”

Game Storm is currently building a BSV-based platform similar to an app store for play-to-earn games. Why rely on BSV? Raheel says the low transaction fees and the possibility of microtransactions make blockchain attractive.

Then, one of the first participants of the Satoshi Block Dojo, Michal Scislowski, CEO of Soundoshi, a music platform that aims to democratize music. Michal explains the benefits of a blockchain-based music platform. He describes Soundoshi as a new way of owning CDs, except the music is stored on a chain this time around.

Day two of CoinGeek TV opens with Kurt and a special birthday surprise for none other than Calvin Ayre. After a quick exchange of pleasantries, the two went straight to business and discussed GBC’s accomplishments so far. Kurt spoke of record numbers in GBC ticket sales and attendance, while Calvin mentioned the large number of people streaming the event online. Calvin sees a substantial improvement in companies showing up at GBC compared to the first CoinGeek conference held in 2018.

“We are now seeing real performance metrics,” says Calvin.

Dr. Craig Wright’s court victory over Ira Kleiman also came up in the discussion. Calvin sees Craig’s win as an opportunity to change the BSV narrative. “It’s not about targeting the person [Craig] more, what is important is the technology and the people proving that the technology works as advertised.

BlockQuake CEO and co-founder Antonio Brasse was next. The New York native has a solid background in financial services and commerce. His company, BlockQuake, is a digital currency exchange platform that aims to build trust and accountability among its users and improve the quality of digital currency trading. His decision to pivot to building a digital currency platform stems from his personal experience in digital currency trading. While trading, he noticed issues such as hacks, issues with KYC and liquidity.

“These are easy fixes,” he says. Antonio also wanted to stress the importance of regulations for consumer protection. “We want these automated market makers… derivatives platform, futures, but we have to get all the licenses, we’ll make them available, but offer them in a safe environment,” he notes.

One of the topics that gained traction at the convention was IPv6 for blockchain. Latif Ladid, President of the IPv6 forum and IPv6 influencer, stopped by CoinGeek TV to discuss the new internet protocol. IPv6 and the BSV blockchain are a great fit, he says. Similar to BSV, IPV6 can do end-to-end applications by restoring the end-to-end model, which is fundamental. Latif also shared how he met Dr. Craig Wright while researching IPv6 for blockchain.

“Craig’s name came up, I invited him to speak at an IPV6 summit in front of some IPv6 gurus…they were impressed,” he notes. Craig is now set to speak at several upcoming IPV6 conventions around the world.

On the third and final day of GBC, Patrick opens the midday show with Joe Holles De Peyer, co-founder and COO of Gate2Chain, the main sponsor of GBC. Several products and services operating under Gate2Chain are spread across various industries.

For Joe, Gate2Chain is about real-world usage. They believe blockchain will bring real value to the world. “We think blockchain is maturing and starting to solve real world problems like IOT…and blockchain without low transaction fees and scalability doesn’t make sense, so it boils down to BSV” , points out Joe.

Another company that stood out at the convention was sCrypt. Its founder and CEO Xiaohui Liu talks to Patrick about his new app that will allow developers interested in building on Bitcoin SV to switch to the program with just one click. Known as Transpiler, the application converts code written in Ethereum’s Solidity language into Bitcoin Script. The so-called killer app is considered a game changer and has already earned praise from the BSV community, including Dr. Craig Wright.

During the final show, TAAL CEO Richard Baker stops by CoinGeek TV to share some valuable insights into the future of blockchain, especially BSV.

“Technology adoption takes longer than anyone thinks, he notes. “We’re bringing this to market now at a very good time…use case after use case who demand this solution.

Richard is also keen to point out that Millennials and Generation Z, the digital natives who make up the majority of today’s demographics, will respond well to a connected environment, especially peer-to-peer payment systems and ownership of data.

He sees TAAL (CSE:TAAL | FWB:9SQ1 | OTC:TAALF) becoming a metanet service provider in the future. “I don’t think we’ll be talking about miners in five years,” he notes. He compares TAAL At an internet service provider Telco saying, much like the traditional carrier of the 90s, BSV miners will take responsibility for monitoring digital transaction processes.

To cap off GBC Dubai 2022, CoinGeek TV held its traditional Champagne toast with Dr. Craig Wright and some CoinGeek staff. In a brief interview, Craig didn’t stress the importance of sCrypts Transpiler enough, saying, “we’re building a roadmap for everyone to scale…we want people to ‘Ethereum are building in a way that allows them to move between chains, persist their data, upgrade chains without losing values.
