Monero Talk interviews Dr Kapil and crypt0guard from Particl, BasicSwap DEX

In this Monero Talk episode12, Douglas Tuman3 interviews Dr Kapil Amarasinghe4 and crypt0guard5:

[..] if you look at the fundamentals of proof-of-work [..] what’s the consequence of running smart contracts on the actual blockchain itself: you lose X, you lose Y, you lose Z. Let’s move that off. [..] to get real privacy can be really a fucking pain in the balls, but it’s so worth it! (Dr Kapil @ 37:45)

Both guests are part of the blockchain-based privacy project Particl6: Dr Kapil is a project advisor and crypt0guard is one of the project managers.

Several topics are discussed in this interview, including Particl and its built-in messaging system, BasicSwap DEX7, Monero, and reducing the risks of using decentralized exchanges.
