Bitcoin Takeover

Season 3

S3 E4: Carlos Roldan on Satoshi’s Games and Lightning Network

Spanish bitcoiner Carlos Roldan is the creator and lead developer of Satoshi’s Games, an awarded video game platform which makes use of the Lightning Network for microtransactions. After having reviewed his work in a Bitcoin Magazine article, I thought it would be a great idea to have him on the podcast and discuss more matters which concern Bitcoin and Lightning.

Throughout the hour-long conversation, Carlos talks about his motivation behind Satoshi’s Games, his beginning in the Bitcoin space, and the BTC meet-ups that he attends in Spain.

If you’d like to try out Satoshi’s Games, you can sign up with only 1000 sats by following this link. Also, you can meet Carlos at the Lightning Conference which takes place in Berlin in October 2019.

The episode is available on YouTube, Spotify, and iTunes.

Donate to the Bitcoin Takeover Podcast!

Starting this season, 25% of all donations will go to the Free Ross campaign, to help Ross Ulbricht get a second chance. The draconian sentence that he received should concern every bitcoiner around the world, as the government which poses as a champion of liberty gives a double life sentence for indirect and non-violent crimes involving Bitcoin. 

It’s a slippery slope that should concern us all, regardless of the jurisdiction under which we find ourselves. The case of Ross Ulbricht has set a dangerous precedent all around the world, as lesser democratic countries can simply prosecute bitcoiners under similar charges and with outcomes that are just as harsh. If Ross was to receive clemency or at least a second trial with another judge by taking into account the new evidence, the decision would get noticed by judges and politicians worldwide. Whether we like it or not, the USA is an example for the rest of the world and we can actually try to make a difference in a positive sense.

As usual, 50% of BTC earnings will be sent to the guest. In this situation, Dan Hannum will be rewarded for his time, effort, and knowledge.

You can donate on the main chain at the address below, via Lightning on, and you can send $1 of your dirty and criminal fiat on Patreon.

You may donate here. 50% of the amount goes to Carlos Roldan, and 25% shall be sent to the Free Ross campaign: 3HutXcf6vfns6UqreU1wiB2DXRdELFMxaR
