Description

This is episode 263 of You, Me, and BTC – your liberty and Bitcoin podcast.
If you’re paying attention, you may notice some missing YMB episodes. We skipped straight from E260 to E263 because Dan’s been out of town for a few weeks. Tim ran things solo for awhile, so the last few shows only exist on YouTube for now. Eventually we’ll add them to our website and our podcast feeds and everywhere else…
But hey, did you catch that? Dan’s back! That means we can finally talk about real legit crypto stuff again.
Today’s first topic is this morning’s Bitcoin hearing for the United States Senate Committee on Banking, Housing and Community Affairs. Zack actually attended the debate between Dr. Nouriel Roubini (a huge Bitcoin hater) and Peter Van Valkenburgh (a Bitcoin advocate).
Then later in the show, we’ll dive into an interesting stat from the Bitcoin charts. Apparently, the volatility index recently hit a record low for 2018. Is this a good sign? Should it make Bitcoin easier to use? Or does it mean we’ve petered out to nothingness?
Tune in for all the fun tonight at 9PM Eastern and check the list below for some of the specific stuff we’ll cover!
Bitcoin is the ‘mother of all scams’ and blockchain is most hyped tech ever, Roubini tells Congress
Dr. Nouriel Roubini vs. Bitcoin: Senate Hearing Breaks Down His Arguments
Bitcoin Price Volatility Falls To Lowest Of 2018

  • I was wondering if anyone had any experience with p2p lending with bitcoins? I can see there seems to be a bunch of cryptocurrency p2p lending sites. Does anybody have any experience with them? I’ve already mined some bitcoins and was thinking it might be interesting to capture a yield on them. Alternatively, I was thinking if the p2p bitcoin is crap and it’s too risky not to get paid back, to take the other side of the trade: borrow (maybe to buy some more mining equipment) and then default on the loan…

  • This company is basically a full reserved bank that would be fully approved by Murray Rothbard himself. Their metals broker-dealer business is their cash cow today but they are creating a payment network that disintermediates banks and saves their customers money. They have a crypto broker-dealer and storage business as well but as prudent financial advisors the company’s management tries to educate the public about the virtues of gold ownership. The company acts like a fiduciary and seems much more trustworthy than market leaders like coinbase. Expanding into China with a customary 50/50 JV with a local company. Tough to predict the companies FCF going forward but it trades under 2x book value. Let me know what you guys think.
