  • Can bitcoin and regulation coexist? Recently I was invited to speak at the Center for Free Enterprise at the University of Louisville, and so I thought that it would be a great place for crypto attorney Sasha Hodder and myself to discuss the beginnings of bitcoin and the current regulatory environment. I see the framework of the discussion as Bitcoin vs Govt, and would love to know what you think of the issue! Huge thank you to the Center for Free Enterprise for having us, we had such a wonderful time! #bitcoin #blockchain #regulation #government #surveillance

  • Are all bitcoins created equal? Currencies work as if the tokens of money in circulation are interchangeable with one another. This fungibility means a dollar is always worth another dollar. Bitcoin is no different. However, money can also act like a unique asset. A coin’s rarity, age, or its easiness to spend can gain or lose it additional value. How should bitcoin be treated under capital gains tax? If you sell a bitcoin that you've had less than a year that has decreased in value, is that judged differently than a bitcoin you've owned since 2012 that has increased in value? In this video, I explain how if tax laws assess bitcoin as fungible it could mean paying higher taxes than if it’s a commodity. #bitcoin #regulation #tax #fungibility

  • Can Biohacking Save Lives? Dr. Josiah Zayner is a global leader in the BioHacker movement, constantly pushing the boundaries of Science outside traditional environments. We talk about the awesome work he's doing, and how biohacking could save lives. Zayner is the founder of The ODIN, a company that believes the future is going to be dominated by genetic engineering, and that consumer genetic design will be a big part of that. They create kits and tools that allow anyone to make unique and usable organisms at home or in a lab or anywhere. Zayner started BioHacking during his Ph.D. in Molecular Biophysics at the University of Chicago, creating The Chromochord in his apartment, the world’s first musical instrument that uses engineered protein nanotechnology. After his Ph.D., Josiah received a prestigious fellowship to work with NASA's Synthetic Biology program, engineering bacteria to help terraform Mars. Now he is the Founder and CEO of The ODIN. Josiah has a number of Scientific publications and awards for his work in protein and genetic engineering and is also recipient of Art awards for creating Speculative Science works that have been featured in museums across the world, including NY MoMA PS1. His work has been featured in Time, Scientific American, Popular Science, Businessweek, The Verge and NPR, among many others. He enjoys Whiskey and Red Bull, sometimes together.
