Description

This is episode 187 of You, Me, and BTC – your liberty and Bitcoin podcast.

TRIGGER WARNING: In the post below, I refer to the Bitcoin with more hashing power as the original Bitcoin. It’s the one that adopted SegWit and currently trades at over $3,000. I hope that triggers you.

So. We’ve been forked for a week and (the original) Bitcoin has done nothing but soar. Now what?

Have we finally emerged from the fiery furnaces of debate and conflict? Has Bitcoin walked the hot coals to become a real, mature crypto, ready to take on the world? Does Bitcoin Cash still stand a chance to dethrone the original Bitcoin? What does this week’s SegWit lock-in mean for the two Bitcoins?

Good questions. We’ll do our best to talk through all that and more tonight.

Then later in the show, we’ll play a talk radio interview that I (Daniel) did on Trending Today USA. Host Ernie Brown asked me all about what Bitcoin is, where it came from, where it’s going, and more. And it’s not a Bitcoin radio show, so I had to try to explain everything without sounding too confusing.

Tim and Zack will almost certainly berate my efforts for your pleasure, so you do NOT want to miss this.

Tune in at tonight 9PM Eastern and check the list below for some of the specific stories we’ll cover!

  • [ 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?

  • So I have this warning when I log into my Poloniex account that is specific to New Hampshire residents. So much for being the Free State. Any other free staters know what this is all about? I’m going through the process now of moving my ETH.

  • http://www.ination.io/ is raising seed capital. What do you guys think about replacing the state’s function of storing legal documents? I assume they mean property registration. Unlike some prominent anarchists, I am in favor of this. Real property such as land titles should be on a blockchain. Thoughts? “Founded in February 2015 by David Mondrus (CEO) and Nathan Wosnack (CCO), iNation is one of the world’s first secure, distributed, and cryptographically verifiable store of legal documents. iNation is one of the first companies to address the coming unbundling of the government services market. More information about the platform, its products/services will be available soon.”
