Re: I’m Michael Perklin: Bitcoin Security Expert, President of standards body C4, Director of Bitcoin Alliance of Canada

Hi Michael,

Thanks for participating in this.

As a security expert, can you explain what you see as the biggest threat today to bitcoin? in the next 3 years?

How often do business or government bodies contact you or C4 for expertise, and what types of questions are they interested in learning?

Re: I'm Marshall Long aka 挖矿王子 - Partner & CTO of FinalHash, LLC and a True Bitcoin OG

HI Marshall, You have an interesting story. What does a typical mining operation look like? How do miners decide which transactions they mine?

Hi Jeff,

Thanks for participating. How much power do the miners have in attacking the network? Either for their own interests or colluding together? What security safeguards are there preventing a majority stake?

Thank you!

Re: I'm Ben Davenport, co-founder & CTO of BitGo. Ask me anything!
