There’s a new way to put your business on the map in the Bitcoin ecosystem – Bitcoin’s Got Talent. Bitcoin’s Got Talent is a mix of a game show, a pitch competition and a hackathon. There are three main judges –Isaac Morehouse, Jack Liu, and flow– as well as a guest judge –TK Coleman (on the first episode) – Listen to attendees launch their bitcoin deals before voting to send the attendee to the next round of the show or to vote them off the show.
Episode one debut
The first episode of Bitcoin’s Got Talent went live on January 31st. In the first episode, four candidates – Preston Brown, John Pitts & John DeFelice and Georgiy – present their creations and business ideas to the judges. Without giving too much away, Brown has created a platform that seeks to demolish the walled gardens that you often see in Bitcoin. Pitts and DeFelice are setting up a crowdsourced dictionary whose backend has the potential to turn into something much larger than a dictionary, and Georgiy presents a piece of music that may serve as a song that Jimmy Nguyen will go to at the next CoinGeek conference.

“I’m looking forward to seeing the reaction from the first (pilot) episode and see if we can get the people in the room excited and interacting again,” said River. “It’s been almost a year since we had the opportunity to physically get together as a community and since travel is still out of the question for most, this was the next best thing we could think of to bring the Bitcoiners back together and laugh , watch in awe and inspire inspiration to build and create new and exciting things in the room. We want to attract everyone in the room, developers, designers, singers, whatever you call it! If you’re a bitcoiner and have a talent for sharing, we’d love to hear from you! The grand prize is a trip to the nearest Cambrian SV where all costs are paid! “
What I personally liked about the first episode of Bitcoin’s Got Talent is that it is light-hearted, a bit informal, and judged by people working on Bitcoin downstairs. In addition, the group of judges gives some really good business advice. It’s refreshing to see a lesser-known person building on Bitcoin get a glimpse of their projects.
If you think you have a good bitcoin business idea and are interested in taking that idea to the next level, this is your place to go apply appear on Bitcoin’s Got Talent; Applications are open Episode one is liveand I’m looking forward to the next episode of Bitcoin has talent.
