Fascinating Crypto Convo with Samson Williams

Fascinating Crypto Convo with Samson Williams

We started this journey because the blockchain and crypto world fascinates us. And we knew that by doing so we’d have the opportunity to speak to some fascinating people. That is exactly what has happened.

But nothing prepared us for the incredible conversation we were about to have with Professor Samson Williams. What started as a casual meeting at an event in Philadelphia led to a mind-blowing discussion that goes down a number of rabbit holes. In fact, we’ll tell you up front that this conversation was so epic that we’ve already invited Samson to come back and share more of his thoughts. Yeah, it’s that good.

So prepare to be fascinated. It’s like sitting down at the movie theater with a fresh bucket of hot-buttered popcorn, but without the greasy mess and 10 previews of coming attractions.

This is a fascinating crypto conversation with Professor Samson Williams on episode #323 of The Bad Crypto Podcast.

Amplify Exchange is a cryptocurrency exchange focusing on fiat to Altcoin markets. The concept was born out of the original Substratum ecosystem, which provides access to a decentralized internet. Now crypto market participants have the ability to connect, earn, and spend their digital assets like never before. Three separate products (Amplify Exchange, CryptoPay, and Substratum) that stand on their own as functional powerhouses within their own sphere of influence but when combined become a symbiotic software suite that solves the basic needs of each of our digital lives.

Digitex

Digitex Futures uses blockchain technology to eliminate transaction fees, decentralize account balances and govern itself autonomously.

Traders speculate on the price of Bitcoin against the US dollar, but their trading profits and losses are paid out in DGTX tokens. This means that traders need DGTX tokens to enter a trade, and this creates demand for DGTX tokens from traders.

Digitex covers the cost of running the exchange by creating a small number of new tokens each year instead of charging transaction fees on trades. Commission-free futures markets on a stable, fast and secure trading platform will attract large numbers of traders who must buy DGTX tokens to participate, creating increased demand for DGTX tokens that offsets the small inflationary cost of creating new tokens.

Jess Houlgrave, Co-Founder & COO of Codex Protocol explains how Codex puts both digital and physical assets on the blockchain to helps artists and art consumers achieve a number of benefits. She also explains the new partnership with Biddable to help auction houses accept cryptocurrency for payments, which allowed Codex to hold an auction in NY during Ethereal Summit. During the summit, Codex auctioned off the world’s most expensive cryptokitty for a price that will surprise all of our listeners!

Codex also helped set up the foundation for Arts and Blockchain, which is designed to support artists working with blockchain and help them understand what blockchain means for their practice and work.
