Description

This is episode 198 of You, Me, and BTC – your liberty and Bitcoin podcast.
I literally haven’t seen a single bit of working Bitcoin Gold infrastructure. Everyone’s been talking about it and some speculators are trading it, but ultimately the new Bitcoin fork is not usable yet. Some wallets and exchanges and pools have committed to supporting it when it’s ready, but it’s still literally not a thing.
And the Bitcoin Gold price is plummeting to boot. So what does this all mean? What do we expect for the future of Bitcoin Gold and similar forks? We’ll share our thoughts during this week’s show.
Also, Amazon just had a conference call for their investors and never once mentioned Bitcoin. So much for that dream.
Catch our livestream tonight at 9PM Eastern and check the list below for some of the specific stories we’ll cover!

  • 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.

  • Hi there! Can anyone give me some initial advice on where and how to purchase and store physical gold? I’ve never done this before and I figure this is probably the most trustworthy forum for such advice. A bit about my situation. I’m from the UK (Northern Ireland) and have bought gold coins in the past but these were always delivered to me and are in my own possession. I want to buy and store a much larger amount as safely as possible because holding this gold myself is not really an option. My reasoning is that I am considering selling my house and travelling around the world on a motorbike. Ultimately I would like to buy a rental property somewhere that would provide me with some passive income while I travel but would probably rule out the UK. This means I need to put the value somewhere in the mean time and it certainly is not going to be put in a bank! Thanks

  • And we thought we were excited when ETH was 2.00 USD per ETH. 10 USD and up! Market cap is larger than all other crypto-currencies combined (minus BTC). Wouldn’t be surprised to see some pullback for a bit while short term traders take profits. https://coinmarketcap.com/currencies/ethereum/ https://coinmarketcap.com/

  • Speculators, Take a look at the recent Precious Metals Summit for 2016. It has a vast amount of company presentations but consider paying particular attention to the Ross Beaty interview and the other keynote presentations.   http://www.gowebcasting.com/conferences/2016/09/14/precious-metals-summit
