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
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.
April 28th from NYC: Another good show where we explore more problems that expose Bitmain insanity. Here is the TL;DR 0:01:00 – Antbleed: The latest news exposes how Bitmain had a feature that can tun off your miner remotely. This should strike a major blow to Bitmain and will probably begin it’s downfall. 0:21:00 – Bitcoin & Ethereum Hit All Time High: I am calling for a Bubble in the Altcoin & ICO space. The Ethereum price is already getting out of control. Bitcoin should still be OK. 0:39:00 – Bitcoin.com Adds Cloud Mining: This is crazy, most Cloud Mining companies are outright scams and the rest are soon to be Ponzi’s. This is insane. I am not very critical of Roger Ver because he is directly involved in too many parts of the Bitcoin Ecosystem:
A – Media (Bitcoin.com)
B – Mining (Bitmain & ViaBTC connections + Bitcoin.com Pool + now this Cloud Mining project
C – Wallets (Big investor in Blockchain.info)
D – Development (Bitcoin Unlimited take over attempt)
E – Exchange (ViaBTC plans to launch an exchange) 0:52:00 – South Korea Exchange Gets Hacked for 5M: Welcome to Bitcoin BONUS: I talk about the Tether situation and the Banking problems of Bitfinex via Taiwanese Banks.
On Adam’s Friday recap show, Vinny Lingham spontaneously joined around the 40 min mark. I also join the show around the 1 hr mark. We mostly talk about the Scaling Mess. I also give Vinny a hard time about Selling all his coins.
January 20th from Hunter Mountain NY: I know my connection was bad but it’s the best I had being on location in the middle of nowhere. Here is the TLDR 0:00:02 – Is Trump Good for Bitcoin? I have been saying for a long time that both Trump or Hilary could be good for Bitcoin but for different reasons. Unlike Hilary, Trump is anti-tax so this would be very bad for bitcoin as it might not be a use case. However we still need to see his stand on the drug war and if he is anti drugs that would be good for bitcoin. He might also make remittance to Mexico harder which is a very good thing for Bitcoin. Exit question was the price of bitcoin in a week and i’m pretty confident it will be higher. (price at the time was $900) 0:23:00 – ETC ETF by Barry Silbert: My position on ETC has not changed since day one, I expect the price of ETC to equal ETH in the future. As for Barry, i have been very critical of him and what he is doing with his statements on ETC and buying it ahead of time then pumping it with his comments. I am also critical of Barry about his current Bitcoin Trust product. I also think it’s silly to have a Bitcoin ETF so imagine a Shitcoin ETF. A Bitcoin ETF has two major problems and about a dozen small problems: A. Who is going to be responsible for the security of the Underlying asset (aka Bitcoin that can be stolen) B. Allowing a Bitcoin ETF is opening the door for a OneCoin ETF and everything in between. 0:45:00 – Mark Karpeles: Not much of an opinion but I will try and get Karpeles on my new show CryptoScam 1:05:00 – Miami Bitcoin Conf & Hackathon: Just general thoughts on the event from Chris DeRose and Myself. (I would love to see a conf in Cancun Mexico) BONUS: Coinbase is insane for their speaker quotas for the Consensus Conf.
