PoF 1 – Payments on Fire Bitcoin Discussion with Scott Loftesness

George Peabody

September 7, 2014

POF Podcast

Welcome to Glenbrook’s Payments on Fire podcast!

This conversation between Glenbrook’s founding partner Scott Loftesness, Terence Spies, CTO of Voltage Security, and Glenbrook’s George Peabody is about virtual currencies.  It’s a discussion about Bitcoin, other math-based currencies and approaches like Ethereum, Nxt, and more.

We’re calling Glenbrook’s podcast series Payments on Fire because, well, payments are hot and the payments industry finds itself in some hot water. Between investor, entrepreneur and hacker interests, payments is the place to be.

My Glenbrook partner Elizabeth McQuerry will join me as co-host on this series soon. Looking ahead, Payments on Fire will cover all things payments. You’ll hear interviews with payments participants about their offerings, conversations with members of the Glenbrook team and guests on recent events and news as well as discussions on the larger themes of faster payments in the US, payments security, and more. So, please plan on coming back to hear more.  It’s not just about Bitcoin.

But before we leave that topic, we are running our second annual bitcoin and payments survey right now.  So, please, check it out and let us know what you think. You’ll find the link at our blog site, paymentsviews.com and here.
