Nice interview. You were pretty vague about the timeline. I have two questions, being ignorant about sidechains. (1) How likely is gmaxwell / Blockstream / whoever to get a working sidechain implementation within 1 year? (2) Assuming that happens, how likely is truthcoin-cpp to be at a "beta"-level release stage within 2 years?

I enjoyed the nervous system comparison around 34:00.

I hope that the betting leading up to the 2016 American presidential election will have distributed prediction markets.

(1) Hard to say. They'll want to carefully think through a number of security issues before Doing Actual Things (like making an OP_SPVPROOF or whatever), so it really depends on how much time they put into it. Unfortunately they've been distracted by blocksize and many of them are interested in other things (confidential transactions, etc).

(2) 99%.  I would say 90% it will be at beta level by October 4th.

I hope that the betting leading up to the 2016 American presidential election will have distributed prediction markets.

I as well.
