Much has been written over the past year about the new digital currency Bitcoin – especially after its price skyrocketed 15x in just a few months, followed by a blow-off correction of over 50%.

But what exactly is it? How does it work? How secure is it? What are its advantages (and disadvantages) to sovereign fiat currencies? To precious metals?

In this week's podcast, Chris talks with Gavin Andresen, chief scientist of the Bitcoin Foundation and lead developer for its digital currency project.

Seems to me like Chris himself is still very sceptical about bitcoin, but his audience wanted this to happen, so he complied.
He looks interested by parts of bitcoin, but probably can't get over the digital nature of it, so he is sticking with PMs.
He is a smart chap though, so if bitcoin can stay on course, he'll get on the train eventually  Wink.

As always -  another great interview by Gavin.

Did the host really keep calling him Gavin "Anderson" not "Andresen" ??

In case you missed it here is another good on-camera interview with Gavin conducted by Leo Leport on his  "Triangulation" program.

Mr. Anderson is telling us it's all virtual and digital.  Grin
