nChain Group’s new CEO Christen Ager-Hanssen a Twitter space session Kurt Wuckert Jr. to discuss the Bitcoin SV (BSV) ecosystem with He called it the DNA of BSV. It was an interesting look at the latest and future developments in BSV.
Wuckert at Gorilla Pool
Wuckert explains that GorillaPool has been around for over a year now. They build tools that allow people to access and filter data for their business without running a node. There have been attempts at this before, but they failed due to poor business models.
For Wuckert, it’s important that people can access the information they need without having to store it all. With the tools they create, users can filter all kinds of data available on their servers to serve their customers.
Currently, GorillaPool is generating hash power and trying to help anyone start mining. It’s less than $3,000 to buy ASICs and start mining with GorillaPool while supporting the network.
Ager-Hanssen agrees with Wuckert that it’s important for everyone to start working together and collaborating. He says he already knows that BSV is a superior blockchain, but most people don’t realize that. So we have to show them what it can do.
Brooklyn Earick at RadNFT
Earick explains that RadNFT has been around for several years now. They started building with the concept of being a cross chain and having options for everyone. They wanted to have options for people who needed fast, reliable transactions, which led them to BSV.
Currently, they have Hollywood movies like “Top Gun” available for purchase and are developing a suite of Web3 creative tools. Sony and Disney have invested in and trusted the company. Having technology that works is extremely important when working with these companies, and this is where BSV comes into play.
Ager-Hanssen notes that after only a week at nChain, he was impressed with all the different use cases. He had never seen a unicorn with so much potential. He believes RadNFT will be the first to reach unicorn status. He said nChain is committed to working closely with companies in the ecosystem and now has a venture arm.
Everyone will have to work, talk and collaborate together to achieve the goal of becoming a trillion dollar ecosystem in the next four years.
“We’re the number one blockchain,” he says, explaining how important it is to reach out to people who are currently skeptical. In fact, he’s not saying we need to fight anymore – it’s time to break out of the bubble, build bridges, and bring people together.
Bjorn Olegard at UNISOT
Ager-Hanssen introduces Olegard and mentions that he has just joined the UNISOT board. He asks her more about it.
Olegard explains that he has worked for Ager-Hanssen for 24 years and that they have been researching the blockchain industry for some time. They decided that BSV was something they wanted to put a lot of energy into. It has passed 1500 projects so far and UNISOT is one of the fantastic examples of how simple solutions can work.
UNISOT has a solution for triple-entry accounting, a revolutionary concept that will change everything about accounting. Both parties confirm each other in the transaction. This includes accounting, auditing, etc. will revolutionize the field.
UNISOT CEO Stephan Nilsson further explains that UNISOT was launched in London in 2018 right after the BCH/BSV split. Since the tools will be for enterprises, he decided to go with BSV. He feels that the momentum is going in a positive direction and the appointment of Ager-Hanssen is very positive. He describes how they met with the Norwegian Finance Authority and how they participated in the sandbox.
Take BSV to the next level and under the hood on nChain
During this process, UNISOT clarified that BSV can be used as audit evidence globally, which is a very important development that opens many doors. For example, it could revolutionize supply chains that touch almost anything.
Looking at some potential use cases, Ager-Hanssen talks about building broader relationships with companies that act as linchpins in various industries, and potentially even buying companies, joining them in BSV and bringing them back to market at a premium.
Wuckert asks what the CEO of nChain looks like. He notes that this is an opaque company and very few people know about it. Ager-Hanssen replies that he has just met everyone and intends to change things at nChain. He wants the firm to be a growth center and more actively supports entrepreneurs in the industry. One thing that needs to change is that nChain is more aware of what is happening in the BSV ecosystem.
Listener ‘Bitcoin Boomer’ says he wants to see nChain defend its patent portfolio and warns Ager-Hanssen to choose their use cases carefully. He notes that there has been some flirtation with Central Bank Digital Currencies (CBDCs) and CBDC supporters may not like it so much.
Bernhard Mueller talks about CENTI
Mueller comments on the value in the BSV space and notes that it should just be connected. The key, he says, is to expand the pie and not necessarily take a piece of someone else’s pie.
Ager-Hanssen asks Müller to explain CENTI’s success in Switzerland and what’s next. He said they are close to launching a native stablecoin for BSV. It will initially be in Swiss francs and will expand to three more currencies.
Given that CENTI’s stablecoin and HandCash also offer tokenized USDC, Wuckert notes that BSV has many different token protocols, and it would be a healthy thing to talk about committing to cycle and use two or three of them. they are.
Patrick Prinz on collaboration
Prinz echoes what Ager-Hanssen said earlier: cooperation and collaboration are crucial. “We’re doing so much work that we can’t do it alone,” he says.
He would like to see nChain become more visible, transparent and proactive in reaching out to entrepreneurs in the ecosystem. He says he’s excited to see Ager-Hanssen’s weaknesses in just a few weeks and is excited to work together.
Rafael LaVerde asks a tough question
Rafael Laverde asks Ager-Hanssen a tough question; what is more important – nChain or Bitcoin? He replies that he sees it as a single system, and nChain is a key part of it. He admits that nChain needs to engage more with the community in the future.
Real Bitcoiners don’t care about patents and usually build open source, LaVerde says. He asks what Ager-Hanssen thinks about it. He replies that the last time nobody cared about patents and nobody was in control, bitcoin was hijacked and turned into BTC. Therefore, certain things must be controlled, and patents are one way to do that. “I’m not going to stop getting patents,” he says, hitting straight.
LaVerde explains how to communicate with each other through proof of work, a concept pioneered by Daniel Krawitz. He thinks it’s a good way to communicate and coordinate as Bitcoiners.
Adam Kling of Fyx Gaming
Kling notes that he started out on Ethereum and has sites like Dapp Radar to keep everyone aware of what apps are out there. They started adding more and more blockchain protocols, but BSV is still missing.
He says there’s a huge education gap and people don’t know you can thrive in Bitcoin. Additionally, they are so trained in Ethereum that they need help understanding things like how to connect their wallets to the BSV blockchain.
Kling feels that we need to reach out to other communities, but notes that it is difficult. He even notes that technical leaders in other ecosystems claim to be doing “cutting-edge” things, but they’ve been happening at BSV for years. Overall, we need to better inform everyone of what BSV is capable of and why it can do things better.
“It won’t take much to become the world’s largest blockchain,” says Kling. He points out that we have a very low bar to beat everyone, and as BSV technology is, it should be possible to do so.
Ager-Hanssen agrees with Kling’s sentiments and reiterates that it is very important to go outside the ecosystem. Both agree that putting blockchain in the background is key to success.
Zack is championing BSV’s brand and its benefits for everyone
Zack Wins asks Ager-Hanssen how 300 people on a call built on BSV for a long time can benefit from BSV-recommending firms like KPMG and Accenture.
Ager-Hanssen responds that the brand image has been influenced by some historical things, including the Satoshi saga, and having blue-chip management firms give you the green light will be of great benefit to anyone working on the BSV blockchain. For example, it will make it easier to approach other firms for potential cooperation.
Zack asks for specific examples of how we can collaborate more at BSV. Wuckert said open collaboration between the people at nChain and the broader BSV ecosystem, including independent developers and entrepreneurs, is something he’d like to see.
Jerry Chan on the importance of community and coworking spaces
Chan begins by saying that coworking spaces are a great idea. He thinks that if these are in the main centers where the developers are, it will cause excitement. He also believes that this is a good chance for some people to share knowledge and learn from each other. They can also act as a magnet to attract developers from outside the ecosystem.
Ager-Hanssen says she agrees and likes to learn from everyone, especially by talking.
