Cypherpunkd Episode 028: “Truledger: An Anonymous Digitally Signed General Ledger and Trading System” – Intro and Walkthrough – Bill St. Clair
The Global Bitcoin Stock Exchange, Bitcoin, Open-Transactions, Loom, GSF, CoatCheck… Buckle your seat-belt Dorothy, cause Kansas is about to go bye-bye. This episode is not for the faint of heart. Nefario starts off telling us some of his background motivation for creating this project. How it started off as a reputation system, but then the GLBSE seemed like a need to be fulfilled first. Discussion on the recent spike in Bitcoin adoption and market activity. We cover features of the GBSE, things working now, things being coded now. How they started with Open-Transactions, but moved to their own backend, and future plans for their replacing most of the backend with future Open-Transactions releases. We go over the Tutorial showing basic features of the system, Register, Deposit, Withdraw, Transfer, Place Order, Show Orders, Issue Assets. Ricardian contracts example of issuing your own Bond, pgp key signing of contracts. Integrating Loom and GSF Globals as an additional settlement/payment currency in GLBSE. Integrating Open-Transactions and other systems. Possibilities of P2P comms with future clients, encryption transports, encrypted messages over OTR. Issues of criminal organizations attacking this system, the need to take it deep in the darknets.
Nefario also lets us know about his other future project “Bitdrop” a distributed package delivery system with couriers getting paid with bitcoin. Programmers wanted! Doing onion routing and geocache, f2f networks. We discuss massively distributed p2p hawala systems with anyone and everyone an exchanger for in/out of second realm currencies. GLBSE METATRADING and his article on anonymous exchange networks.

Cypherpunkd Episode 014: “The Certificate Authority is Dead. Long Live the Certificate Authority.” – Hiro White
Plenty of food for thought on The Certificate Authority infrastructure Scam, Fraud and Back Door into your browser. Leading with 2 excellent articles on the net current to the state of affairs. Followed up with thoughts on how we can start creating our own alternate system of trust authenticity and verifications in applications we use every day.
The Monkeysphere project’s goal is to extend OpenPGP’s web of trust to new areas of the Internet to help us securely identify servers we connect to.

Patrick joins us again to give us the low down on the Loom Grid API. We go over how one would use the API to create a shopping cart. To create a sweep system to clear out temporary locations used in the public facing cart. SSL/TLS connection checking with the backend. Test code in perl to see how the API works. How to do atomic transactions with many moves/api calls. Any programmer listening to this will have a very clear way to integrate loom into any payment gateway, shopping cart, market system, anything that would need to accept Loom payments Into, Out from, or Inside of the Loom system.
