This is episode 231 of You, Me, and BTC – your liberty and Bitcoin podcast.
After years of arguing, months of implementation, and ages of educating users, SegWit is finally taking off. About 30% of all Bitcoin transactions now use the new tech and that number is growing steadily.
What’s causing the uptick? How much of a difference does this make anyway? Tune in for more details and our thoughts on the whole situation!
Also this week, we have to mourn the loss of thousands people whose deaths were caused by Bill Gates. His technology, Microsoft Windows, helps people do wicked things like send emails. And of course we all know that terrorists use email. So we’ll have a moment of silence in honor of all those who fell because of Bill Gates.
Check the list below for some of the specific stories we might cover and catch the livestream tonight at 9PM Eastern. See you soon!
