Description

This is episode 245 of You, Me, and BTC – your liberty and Bitcoin podcast.
First up today, we have a special guest from ContentBox. Dr. Xiaohui Liu is the project’s Chief Scientist and he’s here to share how his team hopes to revitalize digital content. Right now, most digital content (video in particular) is controlled, used, and abused by giants like Google and Spotify. We even use YouTube for this very podcast and often wish we didn’t have to. ContentBox plans to help people escape those clutches with blockchain.
Then later in the show, we’ll cover some remarks from everyone’s favorite Russian president. Vladimir Putin recently hosted a nationwide AMA and got a few good questions about cryptocurrency. Among other things, he noted that Russia would never have it’s own cryptocurrency because it’s just not possible. He essentially said that crypto doesn’t care about borders, which is surprisingly accurate.
It’s gonna be a crazy night! Check the list below for some links and catch the livestream at 9PM Eastern.

  • [ lifted from their website. ]   When We Started Eris Industries, We Asked Two Questions 1) Is it possible to build applications which have the benefits of interconnectedness, but without servers? It is. Distributed applications can perform the same functions of modern web applications by enlisting users to participate in the management and security of these applications’ data. 2) Is it possible to create data-driven interactions which are both autonomous and legally compliant? It is. Data-driven interactions are not exempt from legal norms and procedures, and platforms capable of operating within existing legal frameworks will be profoundly useful to businesses and individuals alike. With Eris Industries’ open-source Distributed Application Software Stack, developers can rapidly design, test, and deploy distributed applications which are as flexible, user-friendly, and legally compliant as they are secure. Think of us as the node.js of peer-to-peer technology. What will you build on the Eris Stack?

  • 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.

  • While one segment of the us government is trying to require a safe and proper backdoor to everyone’s communication we simultaneously see how all of that is being counter hacked , and there is very little keeping uber-hacking tools out of the public.
