Bitcoin vs. Ethereum smart contracts — Interview with Muneeb Ali: Watch Market Talks

This week’s Market Talks features Muneeb Ali as co-founder of Stacks, a Bitcoin layer that allows smart contracts to be executed, and the CEO and founder of Trust Machines which builds the largest ecosystem of applications and underlying technologies for Bitcoin.

Ali has been involved in internet protocols and distributed system research for more than 15 years. He received his Ph.D. from Princeton University in Computer Science.

Let’s start with the basics and then Ali will explain how to build on Bitcoin and what the differences are. What are the benefits and disadvantages of building smart contracts on a network that isn’t often mentioned when we discuss such things?

Next, we will discuss current market conditions and Ali’s thoughts on the state of crypto at the moment. Although boring markets might seem dull to most investors, we discuss whether these conditions are beneficial or detrimental for builders in the sector. Bear markets are a great place to build better products, and Ali shares his opinion.

Everyone is focusing on the issue of Ethereum smart contracts vs Bitcoin. It is better to create smart contracts on Bitcoin than Ethereum. Ethereum seems to be the most popular platform for smart contracts. What is it that Bitcoin can offer that Ethereum cannot? We also discuss the two top blockchain networks and whether Ether (ETH), can or will ever turn Bitcoin (BTC), making it the dominant asset.

Is Bitcoin best used to be accepted and used every day? Or to keep it as a reserve of value and lend it out securely? These are just a few of the many questions we have for you. Keep yourself updated and informed by staying connected.

Listen to your voice and tune in. We will be answering your questions throughout the show so make sure you have them on hand.
