Devcon3 is a wrap! We successfully avoided Corrupted cops, locals & crypto gangs. Instead we had dinner and rubbed shoulders with the best of them. We drunk plenty of alcohol (after all, we ARE in Cancun), and learned a lot. Again, here are our takeaways, but this time from the last two days of Devcon3 as we provide you our recap part 2. Which talks you should watch/attend and/or miss? Who lived up to expectations and who disappointed?...and most importantly, which announcements were game changing. For everyone that met up with us from our slack, and who recognized us from Twitter -- we thank you! We will see you next year!

We’re in the early days of a technological breakthrough that has the potential for enormous societal impact, but challenges remain. As we spent the past week in Cancun, Mexico, we cut the roundtable short, but we bring Stephen McKeon into the studio to have a healthy discussion. Stephen is an expert in topics related to corporate finance, including venture capital, private equity, entrepreneurial finance, mergers and acquisitions. At the University of Oregon, he is an assistant professor of finance. He also works in the Finance and Securities Analysis Center in the Lundquist College of Business.

The first day of Devcon3 has come to an end and there’s a lot to be processed. Before we head into the second day of Ethereum’s conference in Cancún, Mexico, here are our takeaways from yesterday and today. We recap which talks you should watch/attend and/or miss. Who lived up to expectations and who disappointed...and most importantly, which announcements were game changing. Finally, there were also some hints for other improvements to the Ethereum platform that might be coming in the future. These include planned upgrades to the Ethereum virtual machine (EVM), eWASM, which enables Ethereum to run in a web browser, and so-called “stateless clients”, a proposal for how clients could sync with the network more quickly. We anticipate hearing much more about these in the coming days at Devcon3. Listen now, and wait until the end of the conference for part 2. Like DMX, we gon' give it to ya.

DC is an Ethereum-based exchange for government currency backed crypto assets. DC assets are backed by fiat currency reserves and pegged at the value of the fiat currency they represent. CEO, Alex Wearn, is an expert at managing teams in the design and delivery of cutting edge software products. He joins us for a great, engaging conversation. One of the key ideas here is to protect against exchange risk whenever the asset has to reside on the blockchain for a period of time. And so on.

Christians make up 1/3 the global population. The number one bible website gets over 1.5 BILLION PAGES VIEWS per year. I'll let you do the math on the CPM at $4. That's just for Bible reading. We get that this may not be for everyone but to be so short sided. Christ Coin is the first pre-mined Christian-based Cryptocurrency. It is used to financially reward people who read the Bible, post/view content and interact with the community on the Life Change Platform. Luke Forstmann, co-founder, comes from an extraordinary lineage of family committed to working in the philanthropic and financial fields. He was kind enough to come on this week to talk shop!

Today the team goes over what problems a lot of traders run into when trading and how they can start to avoid them. There is no “holy grail” when trading, only a process of proper risk management. Your only job as a trader is to manage your risk properly, not to tell a story. Fundamentals and valuation are two fields focused on often but what is usually overlooked is the cyclical and mental aspects of trading.

Today we talk with Kat Kuzmeskas from SimplyVital Health. SimplyVital Health is powered by Health Nexus, its blockchain ecosystem. In an effort to improve the switch to value-based care, it effectively makes use of blockchain to connect providers regardless of their clinical affiliation. The startup’s ConnectingCare tool also harnesses blockchain to track clients’ financials, monitor analytics and maintain static records generating information about our surroundings and behaviour.

**Health Nexus is a blockchain-oriented distributed system handling data transfer,
payments, and storage specifically designed for Health Care. Because of the sensitive nature and requirements of healthcare, existing blockchain distributed systems are not adequate for healthcare. The goal of Health Nexus is to create a blockchain system that can pass the stringent requirements of healthcare by ensuring better data integrity, encryption, and by providing a validation system to ensure the miners running this network are compliant entities. Health Nexus uses a Distributed Hash Table combined with an Ethereum base Blockchain to provide, among many other features, an ability for frictionless data sharing and access to new revenue streams. This is accomplished via an upgrade to data integrity and security system and the addition of an executive governance system for node validation.

On this episode of BlockChannel, McKie, Dee and Petty sit down with the Founder and CEO of Spankchain, Ameen Soleimani. Spankchain is a platform for monetized webcam streaming; utilizing what are called Ethereum “state channels” to facilitate realtime payments over live-streaming adult video content. Spankchain also plans to debut the first ever “state-channel ICO” which will enable them to more precisely price their token before it reaches market, alleviate congestion on the Ethereum network, and hopefully invite others to adopt similar strategies as the ecosystem works to scale ICO’s accordingly. A very insightful episode, on a taboo topic. But hey, that’s what makes it fun; also there are a lot of puns this episode, so yeah be ready.

With a Top 10 Billboard album (The Harmony Epoch), Preston didn't become the full essence of DJsNeverEndingStory until his mind, body, and spirit was stripped to its most vulnerable and meek point. In this rebirth comes music that tells his story without words. It is ambient hip-hop that can only be felt.  We use this episode to chat about growing pains, going from homeless soul-searching in Los Angeles to life changing moments after getting involved in crypto.

Ian Balina is our special guest this week. A former Analytics Evangelist at IBM, Ian has brought a data-driven, “money-ball” approach to investing in cryptocurrency token sales (ICOs). We chat about what is hot at the moment, a little investment advice and what its like to invest $100,000 to $3 million in promising blockchain startup’s token sales (successfully!).

In addition, Richard Jacobs joins us for the roundtable! He is an entrepreneur, cryptocurrency enthusiast, and publisher of the Crypto News Insider newsletter, and host of the FutureTech Podcast.

What’s so exciting about Grid+ is that they’re seeking to make Ethereum usable by the masses while lowering the price consumers pay for electricity.

In this episode, I talk to Karl Kreder and Alex Miller from Grid+ about how exactly they can lower the price of electricity, how Grid+ is the fruition of many ConsenSys power projects, and perhaps most importantly how their agent can make blockchains more usable and more secure.

The much-anticipated Token Creation Event for BlockMason’s Credit Protocol has been bolstered by a dramatic development. The token sale contract is ready! They have already distinguished itself by offering their token sale to the public in the United States, in what is believed to be one of the first U.S. securities law compliant digital asset sales. Jared and Timothy are startup founders, technical experts, and business development specialists -- so we get them in the studio to dive deep into the plan at hand!

Today we hear from Ted Livingston, who founded Kik interactive in 2009 to address the problem of chat between blackberry, android and iPhone. Since then their chat app, Kik, has exploded in popularity, experiencing use by up to 40% of US teenagers.

In 2015 Tencent, the builder of Chinese chat giant Wechat, purchased a 5% stake in the company at a Billion dollar valuation. A move that some are saying has anointed Kik as the Wechat of the west. It’s interesting to see the youth focus with One Direction leading their award winning marketing campaign of 2014 .

Kik is a somewhat anonymous platform, with it’s own economy in which stickers are traded and users can be charged for access to certain chat rooms.

By launching the Kik in-app currency, Kin, as a cryptocurrency, Kik interactive aims to enable the Kik micro-economy to grow independently and organically. The Token launch ended recently with nearly one hundred million USD equivalent raised. No surprises there. What is interesting is that registered contributors numbered over 10,000 and resided in over 100 countries, indicating that the currency is indeed broadly distributed compared to other tokens. Though, my guess is it’s concentrated in the hands of speculators, rather than the 15 million community participants.

This episode was recorded over two months ago so it’s interesting to look back from the other side of the Token Launch and see Ted’s claims of broad distribution validated.

Our very own Kenn Bosak was hacked...so I asked him to stop by and help us learn some lessons together. When you are in crypto, digital security should always be on the forefront of your mind. With this episode we aim to reestablish that fact.

With multiple fields of analysis when trading, it is often difficult for traders to decide how much weight they should put into each one when pulling the trigger. This week we help answer that question with the 80-20 rule and some trading history. This subject comes up multiple times a week during our trading sessions and this week we have Jason's take on trading analysis.
