Today we talk with Joe Markham of Block66. Block66 is developing a new breed of mortgage lending platform that leverages blockchain technology to increase transparency, streamline the deployment of capital and overcome geographical lending restrictions.

Mortgages are now a rich persons' product, the technology in the market is archaic, and many creditworthy people have been left high and dry by risk-averse institutions. By harnessing the power of blockchain technology, Block66 lowers barriers to entry for small-flexible lenders, streamlines origination, and creates new opportunities for borrowers.

The reason most securities aren't on the blockchain is because it's a daunting task. Simplifying this process could open up opportunities for all local businesses. Solutions need to come from the cryptocurrency space and need to embrace the benefits of decentralization as much as possible. That’s where Polymath comes in, a holistic solution to an inevitably solved problem. Let's hear it straight from the horses mouth, shall we? Or in this case, the CEO, Trevor Koverko.

Chris Rice is a businessman, college student, a bitcoin enthusiast and a late night toker. His love for anarchy is what fuels his passion for Cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology. We sparked up and spoke about Texas kicking USI Tech and Bitconnect to the curb and what's next to expect with regulations in 2018. Chris dug deep into the practical use cases for blockchain technologies as well as the weighted stress by investors for real life applications. The wealth paradigm shift is only the beginning, it's the social and cultural stereotypes that bitcoins blockchain will truly set us free form. Bitcoin is the blockchain of freedom.

It almost feels like the Cryptoverse is a desolate planet of intellectuals, where intelligence runs scarce and stupid rome rampant. In times like this the PABs all tend to look to the most intelligent person in the room, rather than think for themselves. Right now, that person is Jimmy Song. With fake news and FUD fueling FOMO, it’s a refreshing change of pace to see bitcoin enthusiasts like Jimmy Song staying cool, keeping calm and relaxing in a burning building. Why hasn't Coinbase integrated Segwit? What effects can the loss of Net Neutrality have on decentralized cryptocurrencies? Can our ISP censor the blockchain? Press play and jam out to everyone's favorite Song to find out more!

It can also be a solution for sending messages not just on passing but on birthdays and anniversaries. Listen to the episode and find out how.

Amy Wan is one of the most versatile lawyers we have come across. Not because she is smart and resourceful, but because she has experience as a Securities Attorney dealing with security law for ICOs. She is authoring the Bloomberg Law practice guidance on ICOs. Previously, she was a Partner at Crowdfunding Lawyers and General Counsel at Patch of Land, a real estate debt crowdfunding platform. Amy is also the founder and co-organizer of Legal Hackers LA, which programs around the intersection of law and technology. Also the boys talk in depth about whether or not we are on the correct path to mass adoption. This is not mass adoption, this is mass trading...those are two different things. Right?

RocketPool is a mining pool for proof-of-stake Casper. While none of the parameters of Casper are final, a minimum of 1000 ETH has been discussed as a requirement for staking. RocketPool makes staking accessible to non-whales. David and I discuss how he’s architected RocketPool for security of funds and also the devops behind making sure that your node is constantly online. RocketPool will use nodes around the world — but what happens if the data center catches fire where your Ether is staked?

We've heard a lot of feedback from listeners inquiring why we don't talk about Bitcoin Cash much. Well, today we discuss the Bitcoin Cash Fund. What is that? Well it is a grass-roots project to accelerate the adoption of Bitcoin Cash. Also our guest this week is Dr. D.L. Thornton, a Ph.D. economist who conducts economic research on a range of topics, especially economic policy. It makes for a good podcast episode because he is an excellent speaker with a knack for presenting complex and arcane economic ideas in simple, understandable terms.

I expect Bitcoin will overthrow the total circulating USD very very soon. What do you think? How about Ethereum? ROCKET SHIP! You see the price?! That's a 5,500% price rise compared to current price. The price of Ethereum may be rising on the news that Ethereum might get its own derivatives market, as well as prediction by Bitcoin investor Mike Novogratz that the price of ether will reach $500 this year. Arianna Simpson first came on our radar when she wrote about a companies practice of valuing companies on a monthly basis which imposed public company-level scrutiny on the very private companies it chose to invest in. We thought it was tremendously short-sighted as well, and created volatility where there need not be. How does that relate to crypto? Hit play!

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!

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.

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.

After 2008, Greece, Cyprus, Venezuela, Brexit and more, people are worried about their paper based money sitting in a bank and not even earning interest. Vaultoro Is the first company in the world to offer its client a real-time Debit card and internet banking functionality using gold and without the need of a bank.  It was around this time we had Joshua Scigala on our show the first time. You see, Vaultoro.com, is the first and longest running bitcoin / allocated gold exchange and recently they just closed funding round with one of fintech’s largest investors. I'm talking six figures holmes. TThe investment from FinLab AG into Vaultoro will enable them to scale fast. After all, their mission is to enable as many people as possible to secure their savings in assets away from the banking system before another major currency crisis. Yeah, we can dig it.
