4. Bitcoin You Old Gold So and So….

If bitcoin is like gold, then what of other cryptocurrencies? And what of the blockchain?

In part two, our guest, Brooks Jordan, brings up Amazon, and the internet of the 1990’s, as a starting point. 

And then what could the blockchain do for the world besides be money. What’s my carbon footprint? Can we record that in the blockchain? Does Carbon X require self reporting?

3. If Money is Like Color Could Bitcoin be Gold?

This is part one of two with our guest today, Brooks Jordan, who comes at crypto from a long lens, his current work and passion is about community. If you are new to crypto and have questions like, “How can a computer create a currency with value?”, or simply “What is Money”, Brooks offers a visionary perspective. 

So far we’ve put cryptocurrency into the context of banking and opportunities and risks of making or losing money

But crypto is about much more than currency. We broke this conversation into two parts. Today, we cover the philosophical underpinnings of this whole damn thing.

In the next episode we step into the potentials of blockchain technology, covering alt-coins, and the impacts of diigital peer to peer, encrypted technology, getting with the deeper implications.

2. Dreaming of Crypto in Color

Episode 2: Dreaming of Crypto in Color.  Before we begin, quick shout out to Maui, Hawaii family, Hey Levi- this episode has got the answer to that question you had on faceboook — the Hawaii crypto conundrum Welcome to coloring crypto, our journey to illuminate cryptocurrency. Thanks for joining, I’m your host Gabe Colors.    2008, bitcoin, the first cryptocurrency materialized,  I was on artist on Maui, discovering color for the first time.  It’s been almost a decade and still, I’m in awe of color. Why? Because a color seems obvious, yet infinitely eludes any and all effort to make it clearly one thing.   I’m beginning to wonder if cryptocurrency is the same. On our exploration, these conversations I am sharing with you, to color in crypto, It’s starting to feel like it.    In the last episode, Josh told us this is something the world has never seen, he illustrates the sharp contrast between our familiar banking system, the only banking system we have ever known, and how cryptocurrency and is totally different.    He’s a professional expert in this space.  Today, we flip perspectives and hear from Anna Ariel, who bought her first crypto coin just six months ago.   And guess what? It’s the same, but different.     This came in a dream.    Anna drops SERIOUS knowledge — on wallets, exchanges, passcodes, seeds, alt coins  she hands out beautifully painted explanations of key terms.    If you are starting from zero, and are ready to dive in deep, this is the podcast for you.

Episode 00

When I first heard of Bitcoin, of cryptocurrency in general, I didn’t get it. I was intrigued, but also confused. That was in 2011, when I could have spent $500 for 250 bitcoins and today could have sold it for $1,000,000.    In a recent week, in September 2017, the week bitcoin dropped from $4600 to $3500, a friend made more money with cryptocurrency in that week than he ever had before.   When I first heard about it, I just figured if people wanted to agree that something had value, then, well, if enough people agreed, then it did.    I didn’t get it.  The idea that money can be created from code on a computer is hard enough to believe.    But then add to that fiends who claimed this technology was more than just about money.  This layer called the blockchain will change the world, it could be more distruptive to our lives than the internet.    It’s about a lot more than just money.  Intriguing. And still … confusing.   I need to be stepped through this.  Put it in layman’s terms, but don’t sacrifice the details. 

  • Where did it come from? What does it mean? 
  • Why does it matter? Does it matter?
  • And what steps do I take if I want to get in?

I have so many questions.   To figure anything out this day and age, what else do you do? Start a podcast.   Welcome to Coloring Crypto.    The podcast that sheds light into the corners of the cryptocurrency and blockchain world. With light comes color. With color so you can see and understand better. Join me, your host Gabe Colors as we take a deep dive into the risks, opportunities and mysteries of this technology.          Since around the time bitcoin launched I’ve explored color and perception. I know color, yet to this day, I’m still in awe of how color reveals that things are rarely what they appear to be.    I see our perceptions and beliefs as interdependent to what’s around us, and at the same time completely unique. Call it a color commentary on cryptocurrency, coloring in the nuances with vivid pictures of the risks and opportunities.    In each episode I’ll host a crypto enthusiast. Could be an expert mathemitician. Could be a rich investor, a scientist, a prognosticator, or even an artist.    There’s a lot of hype around cryptocurrency, and the truth is we really don’t know right now what this will become or how its impact it will look.  I’m curious.    Let’s add a little color to crypto and enlighten this picture.      The Coloring Crypto podcast launches October 1, 2017.   The Coloring Crypto podcast is intended to explain, explore and give tips. God forbid do not take any investment advice from this podcast. I’m an artist! Is that enough of a disclaimer? Anything you hear on Coloring Crypto are just opinions, we don’t know the future.
