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.
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.

Ozzy "The BS Filter" is personally one of my favorite YouTubers in the crypto limelight. He has no chill and tends to go off on tangent rants like an angry old man. But, that's just Ozzy's gimmick. Talking smack is what Ozzy is best at. So, if you're not on the straight and narrow Ozzy will let you know! This man gets crypto and understands the impact yet to be felt by its technology. In this interview Ozzy blesses me with many knowledge bombs as well as personal advice. When Ozzy talks, I listen...

JP Richardson is the Chief Technical Officer of Exodus Wallet, which is quickly becoming my fav- next to Jaxx of course. In this interview JP and I shoot the shit and talk about his new Desktop wallet application Exodus. Don't get me wrong Exodus is a nice wallet, but I did have a few dislikes and JP heard em out. Some of the things I didn't agree with, most of them I understood the stance. Exodus is a noob in the space as far as the product, but the exp behind the wallet is extremely lengthy. When it comes to being your own bank, Exodus makes you the exchange as well. Buy, Trade, HODL!!!

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. It took us awhile, but he is finally on our show to chat in this seemingly ever-expanding market, about launching a new venture called Giga Watt. 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.

Adam Meister is an entrepreneur, self made. He is known for his voice in the crypto community and his views of the world. Being a minimalist isn't easy, but when you can the level of self discipline as Adam, it's just routine. The Bitcoin Meister, or Adam for short is absolutely the most frugal personality in the space. Using the internet to it's full potential and even pushing boundaries beyond borders, he uses the kindness of strangers to travel and couch surf. Being a somewhat, ok huge, bitcoin maximalist, it's impressive he's had guests on his show like Charlie Lee and Amanda B Johnson. As a fan of his show myself, I was excited to get to meet and know Adam as a person not just a personality. Next time, we will dig deeper into the crypto rabbithole.

I know I do. People don't believe what you tell them. They rarely believe what you show them. They often believe what their friends tell them. They always believe what they tell themselves. This is just part of it, but you get the gist.
