Explaining compatibility between the Segwit activation of the current Segwit2X code and BIP 148 UASF is the meat of this weeks episode, so if this isn't your bag, or you're NOT curious, well... As of August 1st (and if Segwit is not already either locked-in or activated) nodes that run BIP 148 will not accept any blocks that don’t signal Segwit. There is a chance Bitcoin will experience a chain-split on August 1st. The bad news is that this coin-split can be messy and risky. And if you’re not careful, you could lose funds. This episode will provide you with the basics to keeping your funds safe during the UASF and will help to make sure you make it to the “other side” with all your bitcoins intact with a little help from our guest Aaron van Wirdum from Bitcoin Magazine.
One of the world's more recognizable bitcoin miners, David Carlson gained global attention for his multimillion-dollar mining venture MegaBigPower during the bitcoin boom of 2014.

Giga Watt provides turnkey mining services and custom packages tailored to clients’ needs: full range of mining services from equipment sales, maintenance and repair to private blockchain servicing. In this way, the idea is the latest and perhaps one of the more ambitious attempts to capitalize on the access to capital provided by the ICO mechanism.
