#33 - Bitcoin Wars! Crypto Ideologies put to the test.

November 13, 2017

Over the weekend we saw Bitcoin Cash stake it’s claim to Bitcoindom, which really shook up the Cryptoverse and left many revising their Crypto bible. Neal and Nathan explore whether the weekend’s price pump was fair game or not, and if Bitcoin Cash is of any threat to Bitcoin. Central to this question is the exploration of the ideologies of decentralization, free markets and incentives.

#32 - Segwit2x Hard Fork Cancelled! What Next?

November 10, 2017

Stunning announcement came out on Wednesday in regards to the Segwit2x Hardfork which will see it cancelled due to lack of consensus. Neal and Nathan were as shocked as many of you out there, but managed to keep it together to dissect the impact of the decision and how the markets will play out. Neal anticipates a lot of volatility coming in the next few weeks, but he has finally turned bullish on Bitcoin, and has proclaimed that 2018 will be declared the year of the Bitcoin. However, the threat of regulation may grow stronger while Bitcoin and crypto become more mainstream now that confidence in them will grow thanks to their stronger crypto communities.

Originally we planned to discuss Waves and it’s blockchain – but we couldn’t hold back our need to bring you our analysis on this big event.

#31 - ICO And Crypto Deflation Around the Corner?

November 6, 2017

We are in unchartered territories with a lot of uncertainty building while we get closer to the Segwit2x hardfork on November 16th. Neal and Nathan dig through the latest trends and news to see if there any way of knowing how things will look on the other side. In this episode we discuss the big drop in ICO investment for the month of October, as well as the continuing deflation of major cryptocurrencies. With Bitcoin continuing to climb to new highs, we wonder how long it can sustain this growth trajectory while other forms of crypto are losing value. Ethereum’s Devcon 3 event got a lot of people excited about Casper the Proof of Stake consensus due in 2018, which brings up the question, how can Bitcoin be valued so high if it’s based on old technology?

#30 - Interview with Josh McIver and Taulant Ramabaja, Co-Founders of ULedger

November 3, 2017

Regulators, big companies, and governments are all scrambling after data transparency.  A foolproof audit trail showing definitively what happened in a company is the holy grail of blockchain for large organizations, even if full transparency ends up being a double-edged sword.

Today Nathan speaks with Josh McIver and Taulant Ramabaja, the founders of ULedger.  Based in Boise, Idaho, ULedger has worked with corporates and governments to add a layer of blockchain immutability to existing datasets, giving companies the regulatory certainty they have been so desperately searching for.  

You can find more information about ULedger at https://www.uledger.co/

Their ICO ends on December 1st.

#29 - Segwit2x: BTC or B2X? Bitcoin Price peaking despite Hard Fork Uncertainties

October 30, 2017

Bitcoin is the gift that keeps on giving, with one recent Hard Fork down and another to go soon, the drama and specualtion surrounding the cryptocurrency is going into overdrive.

Neal and Nathan dig into the inherent risks of this particular Hard Fork that may be over looked, especially since Bitcoin is breaking new peaks in valuations. Segwit2x has become a divisive policy within the Bitcoin community that could reshape crypto in the future. The discussion has become more about power rather than technology, but key to winning is maintaining the "Bitcoin" and "BTC" brand, which is determined by the exchanges, the "King Makers" in crypto-land.

Neal and Nathan also discuss the potential for a cryptocurrency to be used as a transitioning tool when a geographical region breaks away from a state or union. This possibility has resurfaced due to political instability that is breaking out in Spain after Catalunya's attempt to break free and declare independence.

#27 - Tezos, ICO Regulation & Bitcoin Hodlers (Updated Version)

October 23, 2017

Neal and Nathan cover a wide range of hot topics in this podacst, such as the Tezos fallout, ICO Regulations in Switzerland and Tom Lee's analysis on how "Hodlers" are impacting the Bitcoin $BTC price.

Tezos raises many questions in regards to ICOs and how inherently risky they are. While infighting may come as no surprise when a Start-Up becomes an over night success and raises millions in capital, the cause is unique in the case of Tezos. The corporatre governance, by leveraging Swiss laws in relation to non-profits, is not bullet-proof for ICOs and could create a need to develop more fobust governance models to protect investors and maintain ICO confidence. 

Futher insight thanks to a recent Reuters article on Tezos: https://goo.gl/o2Zhgt 

Neal recently met a family who unknowingly had bitcoin since 2011 and recently learned it's value last week. Not a common story we often hear, but does raise the question regarding how much Bitcoin is actually in circultion for trading purposes. Tom Lee from FundStrat claims that this is one of the many causes of Bitcoin appreciating in value so quickly, and why he believes Bitcoin will reach $25k in 5 years.

#26 - Dash Analysis - Trading off Bitcoin Decentralization for Practicality

October 20, 2017

Dash has been one of the best performers this year relative to Bitcoin, making a 400% improvement to date. Neal and Nathan exlpore the potential of Dash to rival Bitcoin and become a defacto cryptocurrency in everyday use when buying goods off merchants. Dash is smartly set up to handle transactions quickly and cheaper than most Crypto, but this has come with trade offs that may impact decentralization enthusiasts. Neal and Nathan examine if these trade offs really matter when the masses adopt crypto more into their lives.

The best point of reference for Dash material and information is at https://www.dash.org/

Neal and Nathan are reunited after Nathan's recent trip to California. They dig into the upcoming Bitcoin Gold and SegWit2x hard forks and how Bitcoin's price change is potentially related to it.

Neal and Nathan discuss the risks associated with the 2 events, while also exploring the fundamental differences between Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Bitcoin Gold and Segwit2x. Should ASICs computers be part of any PoW cryptocurrency, or would GPUs offer a more fair decentralized system for the masses? Listen to our latest podcast to find out more.
