TPB94 – Not Your Keys, Not Your Bitcoin with Stadicus

“We are really building towards the next millions of bitcoiners that will join the space, and we want to give them no excuse to keep their coins on an exchange.” – Stadicus

My guest today is Stadicus. Stadicus is a part of the team at Bitbox, working on Bitcoin hardware and self-custody solutions. In this episode we break down what hardware wallets are, security best practices, and the importance of owning and holding your own private keys. We discuss how Bitbox is making Bitcoin security accessible to everyone and get insights on the future of Bitcoin development, with bonus content including thoughts and experiences with direct democracy in Switzerland, security and privacy tips, and more for paid subscribers.
