Recorded June 7th, 2017: This was my first appearance on the CashFlow Ninja show with M.C. Laubscher. We cover the usual topics surrounding Bitcoin for beginners and also get into scaling issues. Hope you guys enjoy:
Recorded Jun 5th, 2017: I join the discussion a little late but it was still a good one. Please check out Thomas Hunt (aka Mad Bitcoins) talking to Jimmy Song about Game Theory Scenarios over the UASF BIP148. I join the chat around 45 min after the start.
Here are additional articles worth reading:
June 2nd from PA Cabin: This was a very important episode. This was the day I officially started wearing the UASF hat and fully supporting the movement. A little late, i know but I will make up for the time missed :).
0:01:00 – UASF & BIP148: This was our first time diving into the User Activated Soft Fork movement. I warn everyone that as of this day I will become the loudmouth for UASF support.
0:26:00 – ICO Madness: This is getting insane, the Brave Attention Token went out of control. We are flying head first into the .com IPO Crash. I think I end up supporting the SEC a bit to come down and end this Madness.
0:56:00 – Amir Taaki is Back: He is absolutely right, coffee buying was never a reason to get into Bitcoin. I was surprised however that Amir did not mention the Wikileaks case. I also mention that what i’ve been saying for a year about Ethereum Scaling is starting to be realized.
1:13:00 – China Re-Activates Withdrawals: it’s good news, any additional liquidity creates an Efficient Market.
BONUS: I talk about the price… I”m Bullish and calling for new highs. My Story of the Week is of course UASF BIP148
Recorded Jun 1st, 2017: This was my first time on Ken’s show, it was fun, good question, Check it out:
May 26th from NYC: Returning from the Consensus and Token Summit Events needed some sanity. This was one of our better episodes that covered lots of important topics. Here is the TL;DR
0:01:00 – Price Volatility: As the price fell from $2,800 to $2,200 people were starting to go a little nuts. I talk about the price in this section.
0:19:00 – Have the Suits Taken Over Crypto: I talk about the scamfest conferences of the week including Consensus & Token Summit. It is crazy how everyone wants to print money and create unregistered securities.
1:00:00 – Latest ICO Buzz: This is crazy, these ICO’s are outright scams. I elaborate.
1:25:00 – Silbert Accords: During Consensus, Barry Silbert put together a meeting and had all the miners and economic nodes to sign a SegWit2x agreement which I think is insane and NO Core Dev is on board.
May 19th from Hong Kong: I was in Hong Kong to Attend Martin Armstrong World Economic Conference (WEC). Bitcoin was hitting All Time Highs so here is the TL;DR for the week.
0:01:00 – Bitcoin Breaks $1,900 for a New All Time High: Bitcoin still has more life. This is just the beginning because the Shitcoins are in a Real Bubble. I also talk about why the transaction fees are kind of high. Calculating fees in Satoshi’s per byte means if a Shatoshi goes up in price by 5x, so do your fees.
0:35:00 – European Retail Giant Alza Accepts Bitcoin: These stories of Retails accepting Bitcoin is not doing any good right now. None of this does any good especially since Bitcoin is not yet ready for mass adoption due to scaling. We also need this bitcoin to move through the economy and not simply accepting it and instantly selling it for Fiat.
0:59:00 – Congress vs IRS Over Coinbase Reporting: I think this is a waste of time. The IRS has the right to this data just like they have the right to the data from my traditional trading account. I think fighting this is silly.
1:10:00 – DogeCoin Tipbot Takes the Money: Almost everyone takes the Bitcoin and Run, and those that don’t, wish they took the money and Ran.
May 12th from NYC: Not a huge week of news, here is the TL;DR:
0:01:00 – Huge Ransomeware Attack Exposes NSA Backdoors: This is what happens when you have the government tell tech companies to have back doors for them. One day MS, Apple & Google will get the picture and give us actual security.
0:17:00 – Litecoin Activates SegWit: This is actually a big deal. It’s really cool that Litecoin now has SegWit. It should go a long way to helping Bitcoin get it as well and Lightning should now start getting tested. The price pump makes sense.
0:26:00 – Bitcoin in South Korea Trade at Huge Premium: The problem here is Liquidity. Each exchange can only trade what is sitting on it. so when there is a liquidity crunch it can drive the price. GBTC is a perfect example of this. I go into detail on the Monopoly that Barry Silbert has on the Bitcoin ETF. My price prediction is “Price Goes Higher”
0:44:00 – Bitcoin Will No Longer Be Taxed in Australia: It’s a good start as Australia is one of the most overtaxed countries in the world. Canada actually has some of the better laws regarding Bitcoin at the moment.
0:52:00 – Mt. Gox is Almost Solvent in USD Terms: This is a cool story. the 200,000 Bitcoins that were discovered can actually pay people back the USD value of what was lost.
BONUS: I’m Bullish on the Price as I show the Charts.
From NYC on May 12th, 2017: This was my second or 3rd time on Adam Meister’s Channel. Here is the TL;DR
Altcoins: We get into a discussion over the current Alt-Coin and ICO Bubbles:
BTC China Adding Altcoins
I explain why a Bitcoin composed of lots of little transaction will cost extra to send out.
I do not see $10k bitcoin any time soon and if we get to $5k soon there will be a huge correction
As usual, I close out with a Price Chart
Published May 9th, 2017: This was my first appearance on this podcast. The questions were pretty good, so hope you guys enjoy:
Recorded May 2nd, 2017: In this 8th Episode of CryptoScam I am joined by Jason Siebert of the ImNOTYourLawyer Show. Ethereum is a very complicated project so it will take at least 3 episodes to cover it. In this 1st attempt we focus on the Ethereum token pre-sale which to anyone with any financial experience, is an obvious sale of an unlicensed unregistered security. Jason’s expertise helps fill in some of the details. We could have talked about these details all day but at some point we had to stop.
