PODCAST Young Developer in NYC: pokkst on the IFP, Selling His Project, & Leaving BTC

TL;DR: Young developer pokkst is an up-and-coming force within the peer-to-peer electronic cash community. Projects such as tipbitcoin.cash and Crescent Wallet are largely held in high regard. We caught up with the dev to talk about his recent move to New York City (NYC), his views on the Infrastructure Funding Plan for Bitcoin Cash (IFP), and why he left BTC.

Young Developer in NYC

It’s a great time to talk with pokkst. He’s recently left his hometown of Houston, Texas for the place so nice they named it twice: New York, New York. The move parallels his life so far in the cryptocurrency application development world as well. Not too long ago, he left the BTC dev community for Bitcoin Cash.

He’s since made quite an impression. Tipbitcoin.cash, for example, solved a problem for live streaming on platforms like YouTube. Heck, CoinSpice’s own CILII uses it to great effect. Viewers can shoot content creators BCH and tokens seamlessly, and it’s kind of fun to do on top of everything else it offers.

It’s so popular, in fact, the SPICE SLP token team (no relation to CoinSpice) purchased the project from pokkst, making it one of the first to be acquired in the SLP universe. He’s also the main dev for Crescent Cash, a clean wallet that gets high marks from users as well.

The conversation had to, of course, include his thoughts on the then very fresh IFP. pokkst isn’t a supporter, and has gone on to take an active role in opposition. But here his tone is measured and considerate, offering why he thinks the way he does.
