  • The battle of Govt v. ICOs: EOS creator settles for $24million, KIK fights SEC https://youtube.com/watch?v=BHmIuXJHxxQ Last week Kik announced it was closing down its app so that it can focus on fighting the SEC in court over the claim that their KIN token was an unregistered security: "Becoming a security would kill the usability of any cryptocurrency and set a dangerous precedent for the industry. So with the SEC working to characterize almost all cryptocurrencies as securities we made the decision to step forward and fight." Yesterday it was announced that EOS creator Block.One settled with the SEC and must pay $24 million in penalties for conducting an unregistered securities sale. “The SEC has simultaneously granted Block.one an important waiver so that Block.one will not be subject to certain ongoing restrictions that would usually apply with settlements of this type.” Ashe Oro and I discuss these 2 different cases, and what the future might hold for Kin and EOS, and what this means for ICOs in general #blockchain #securities #sec #regulation #eos

  • Quantum Computers: Will they break cryptography? https://youtube.com/watch?v=gJJ7P1d9dL8 Google just accidentally announced "Quantum Supremacy", and the news has gone wild about fully functional quantum computers just around the corner. I chat to a quantum computing expert Eric Dennis about Google's "Quantum Supremacy". What does this mean for cryptocurrency? Could the cryptography of cryptocurrency be broken? Is the cryptography protecting our daily internet activities still safe? Will quantum computers mean fully predictive climate models and data processing like the media suggests, or are they delusional? #cryptography #blockchain #bitcoin #quantumcomputing #quantummechanics

  • Are Everyone’s Worst Fears About EOS Proving True? https://youtube.com/watch?v=iyA2sQnruQg Ashe Oro and I discuss recent concerns about EOS: Is it too centralized? Are too many entities that govern the chain in China, what is the risk of Chinese state intervention? Is the work of developers sustainable, and how can the current funding model be improved? Ashe and I separate the FUD from the legitimate concerns in this episode. We discuss the real hurdles that EOS is battling, and how the community hopes to overcome them. #eos #blockchain #decentralized #crypto #socialmedia

  • France and Germany ban Libra: what's next, and why msm coverage of crypto needs to change https://youtube.com/watch?v=LIu172YsJ1g This week France and Germany agreed to block Facebook's Libra. They said in a joint statement: “no private entity can claim monetary power, which is inherent to the sovereignty of nations” What does this mean for the project moving forward? And why is so much of the mainstream media coverage of the blockchain industry still so terrible? #blockchain #libra #facebook #regulation #ban

  • My Crypto Chocolate Machine https://youtube.com/watch?v=AfBwYVPYUJU I have a chocolate dispenser that is activated whenever anyone sends crypto to a certain address. And it's the greatest thing ever. A year ago I found out about the Iozeta Crypto Candy machines when I interviewed Spencer Lambert. Actually I interviewed his chickens. They have a chicken pellet machine in their pen, and people can activate the dispenser and watch the chickens come flocking to be fed on a livestream. I thought that instead of a chicken-feeder, I should set up a Naomi-feeder. It is filled with chocolate. And 100% of all donations go towards making me incredibly happy. Buy the candy machines here: https://amzn.to/2KxHsG2 Feed Naomi chocolate by sending $5 to any of these addresses: BCH: bitcoincash:qr5ugznd02w9y2adujkq4rpu2x9t2phv0cfdj6v53m SMART: ST3U2fgy1tU9mVzNLH1sL3xUjrbPSZ2jUr DASH: XkV952F6AKNvjXtzHP9uAFV87bqk5dtEUb LTC: LWFtjDPvuiVT81caPVZmEb168YNHofcM7N (BTC currently not supported by Iozeta but they're working on using lightening with the tech) :) #crypto #blockchain #candy #chocolate #fun

  • Fmr Director US Mint: "Bitcoin is good competition for Gold and Fiat" https://youtube.com/watch?v=VqmAEB2xz04 Ed Moy, who was the 38th Director of the United States Mint, and one of the highest ranking government officials to have spoken out favorably about Bitcoin in its earliest days, at a time when NO ONE in government was talking about it. I chat with him about huge increase in the demand for gold that he saw during the Great Recession when he was in charge of the mint, why gold has perceived value rather than intrinsic value, the need for bitcoin and a money not controlled by government, and what regulation might look like in bitcoin’s future, according to his insider perspective. #bitcoin #blockchain #gold #fiat #regulation
