    I'm glad you enjoyed it.

    It's the first time I've been put on a live public video feed, so it was definitely something different for me. :)

    What I liked:

    07:41 "we're not fully caught up with Bitcoin Core because main developer on the btcsuite project Dave Collins is a 'everything must be perfect when it goes into master'" -- ohh I missed this so much at work :S
    18:46 "incentivize people to not go to the exchange and gamble all day and to vote in the system so that we have some sense of sovereignty going on"
    39:20 I could never imagine how much Jake is personally investing.
    42:27 A very pragmatic opinion on smart contracts.
    49:37 Dual-mining Decred and Ethereum on a same GPU? Interesting.
    59:15 "Somebody's got to really upset stake miners in order to get a block invalidated" :)
    64:40 "it's gonna be 850 next week" - second closest guess after Taylor with his 880

    General thoughts:

    * A CEO giving comprehensible yet technical explanations. A _CEO_! My applause. I think the interviewers got little confused at times :)
    * Jake sounds very confident and not boring.
    * Building a sovereign DAO must be a hell of a magnet to stay in the project long term. For anyone tired being pwned by traditional financial institutions.
    * Learning more about Decred I wonder if fully decentralized control (that the project is heading to) would outperform the current semi-centralized but very well executed control. At the end of the day it's all about the right people making decisions.
