Podcast Episode 14: Zero Confirmation Bitcoin Transactions with Josh Cincinnati

Journalist:
July 24, 2015

This episode features Josh Cincinnati, the developer advocate for BlockCypher, a block chain solutions firm.

BlockCypher serves ShapeShift.io and their “Confidence Factor” is the reason that ShapeShift is able to process transactions with as little as zero confirmations. Recently this backfired, but Cincinnati says this is to be expected — it is mitigation, not elimination.

Also featured is “Service Man” by the Classy Motherfu?kers from the Coachella Valley, a country rock outfit from California.
