Is Cryptocurrency and Its Tech Infrastructure Ready for a Revolution?

On There’s More to IT, host Jason Claybrook and guests will explore some foundational questions about the technology that’s driving us all forward.

Why do we build the stuff we build? What’s behind the scenes? Where are we falling short or putting revenue first?

The days of post-trade show drinks and conversation are far from over. In fact, they live right here on There’s More to IT.

 

There’s More to IT is back, and hosts  Jason Claybrook and Simon Lok continued exploring the foundational questions about the technology driving us forward.

This time, the hosts were once again joined byRob Bartley, Exploration and Product Support for Matador Resources Company for a discussion on a hot topic in the world of currency – crypto.

The cryptocurrency industry has come a long way from the days of early Bitcoin mining, with companies and even governments around the globe accepting cryptocurrency in place of fiat currency. Though the implications of cryptocurrency, blockchain and more are exciting, there are also challenges and uncertainties surrounding its growth, from the sustainability of mining operations to the volatile nature of markets.

The landscape is often difficult to navigate, with actual mining operations creating new transactions on the blockchain, apps like Robinhood making it simpler than ever to invest in the currencies as pseudo “stocks,” shifting values, “meme” currencies and more.

For now, mining operations can be made from nearly anything, from the largest industrial installations to make-dos powered by solar panels and boat batteries storing energy to power graphics cards mining Ethereum.
Listen to the entire episode to learn more about the hosts and Bartley’s opinions on what lies ahead in cryptocurrency.
