This week on the “Bitcoin Magazine Podcast,” host Christian Keroles sat down with young Bitcoin developer Gloria Zhao to discuss her story and contributions to Bitcoin Core. Gloria grew up in the bay area and led the elite “Blockchain at Berkeley” group at UC Berkeley. Gloria discusses the misaligned incentives for top college developers pulling them toward altcoin and defi projects. Gloria stated that she needed to be in tune with herself and her motivations in order to see Bitcoin Core as a viable and exciting career path.

Gloria’s talent was quickly discovered by top Bitcoin contributors and she started as the first fellow of a nonprofit Bitcoin development organization, Brink Bitcoin. Gloria is currently working on the very important and thankless work improving the peer to peer layer between nodes. Her specific projects are called Packet Accept and Packet Relay. P2P development is incredibly stressful because it is how nodes talk to each other, and there is massive opportunity for an attack on Bitcoin.

In the podcast we cover the following topics:

  • Gloria’s Bitcoin story
  • Experience at Cal and Blockchain at Berkeley
  • Bitcoin vs. blockchain in education
  • What is it like learning the technical side of Bitcoin
  • Advice to young aspiring bitcoin devs
  • What is “package accept” or “package relay”
  • Gloria’s most profound lesson from learning the technical side of Bitcoin
