The Bitcoin Game #71: Brian Lockhart

Welcome to episode 71 of‚The Bitcoin Game, I’m Rob Mitchell.

I met Brian Lockhart while having lunch at Bitcoin 2019 this summer. Brian recently joined the team at Casa, which happened to have just released details on the Node 2. So this seemed like the perfect time to have Brian as a guest.

I learned a lot from Brian, including how Bitcoin got on his radar (hint: it’s the tech), his five-year Bitcoin Rip Van Winkle experience, and the Casa Node 2. We even review some recently highlighted security trade-offs with the Node, as well as my own case of Lightning fever.

If you’ve ever wanted to know more about Brian Lockhart or the Casa Node, this episode is for you!
