Join us as we discuss the merits of building on Bitcoin with Muneeb Ali and our host, Giovanni Pigni.
In this week’s episode of Market Talks, we welcome Muneeb Ali, co-founder of Stacks, a Bitcoin layer for smart contracts, and CEO of Trust Machines, which is building the largest ecosystem of applications for Bitcoin and its technologies. subject to
Ali has been working on internet protocols and distributed systems for over 15 years and received his Ph.D. in computer science from Princeton University, where he also occasionally gives guest lectures.
We’ll get some basics out of the way first and ask Ali to explain what it means to build on the Bitcoin network and how it differs from the others. What are the advantages and disadvantages (if any) of creating smart contracts on a network that they don’t normally come up when you talk about this kind of thing?
Below we dive into the current market conditions and what Ali thinks about the current state of cryptocurrencies right now. Dull markets may seem boring to the average investor, but we discuss whether such conditions are good or bad for builders in the industry. Bear markets are seen by many professionals as a good time to create better products and services – we have Ali’s opinion.
The main topic on everyone’s mind is Bitcoin vs Smart Contracts. Ethereum. Why is it better to build smart contracts on Bitcoin compared to Ethereum, which seems to be the most popular network to use smart contracts? What does Bitcoin offer that Ethereum cannot? While we are on the subject of the two major blockchain networks, we are also discussing whether Ether
can or ever will trade bitcoin
and become the dominant asset.
What is the best use case for Bitcoin, to be so widely accepted and used that it becomes the dominant currency used on a daily basis or to hold it as a store of value and lend safely? We have one of the brightest minds in the industry to answer all these questions for you. So, make sure you stay tuned to stay informed and stay on top of the latest information.
