We conclude series one with a panel — four innovators discuss the incredible innovations flowing from Satoshi Nakamoto’s first white paper on Bitcoin, published ten years ago.

Our fantastic panelists:

Bridie Ohlsson, Blockchain Lead at AgriDigital.

Phil Shelper, CEO of Loyalty & Reward Company

Max Kenny, CEO of CryptoFlip (also featured on episode 5)

Dr. Philippa Ryan, UTS Faculty of Law

Plus our wonderful ‘drop-in guests’: Joe Lubin, Ron Tucker, Sheffield Clark, Mark Jeffrey, Hugo O’Connor and Chami Akmeemana.

And here’s the original Bitcoin white paper, from 31 October 2008:

Bitcoin – A Peer to Peer Electronic Cash System

After a great conversation, we lit candles on a birthday cake — for Bitcoin!

Phil, Mark, Max, Bridie & Pip ready to blow out the candles!

This amazing event wouldn’t have been possible without heaps of assistance from Stone and Chalk (Laura Rowan, Olga Link & Annie Le Cavalier) and the Spark Festival – many thanks for their support.

This brings series one of CRYPTONOMICS to a close, and I won’t say producer Alex Mitchell and I are celebrating the successful conclusion of the production, but…

Episode 7 – GOOD BUYS

ICOs are risky investments – CRYPTONOMICS looks at how their pitches play on our wishes for a better world, to get us to part with our cash.

We heard about the Great Keppel Island ICO, and here’s the original press release I received on the 4th of September, 2018:


The Crypto Challenge Forum promises:

Blockchain and the Future of Humanity:
Economy. Environment. Ethics

Then we took a look at the white paper’s for two ICO’s we discussed back in Episode 4:

PowerLedger’s POWR token white paper: Power-Ledger-Whitepaper-v3

The Guardian Circle GUARDIUM token white paper: guardium_whitepaper_en-1.0.3
