ERapid Fire UNICEF launches crypto fund UNICEF can now receive, hold, and disperse donations of ether and bitcoin cryptocurrencies. Funding open source technology benefiting children and young people around the world Median US Income by year in BTC Vitalik Buterin claimed that Ethereum will be more secure than Bitcoin after it moves to proof of stake over the next few years. POS introduces a system where validators can be questioned. So you can challenge a block for being illegitimate . "This is how the blockchain becomes more expensive to attack. If someone wants to really bring the network down, they would have to create a lot of malicious blocks. To do so, they would have to stump up a huge amount of ether as collateral—which they would lose if challenged. This makes a major attack much more expensive to run, which Buterin claimed, would be an improvement on proof of work." McAfee started a decentralized "no restrictions" crypto exchange.

Episode 206 - Justin Sun invites the big dogs to eat, Telegram's doing stealthy crypto moves and 640 crypto projects get EXPOSED.

EAnother week, another flagship. This time, all 3 of the guys are on the show, as Brent's sniffles have subsided and he's pumped up to talk crypto with the crew. Today we go over how Kik's ditching its messaging service to focus on crypto, how Telegram is about to bamboozle libra, as well as the entire crypto space, in the most cool-guys-don't-look-at-explosions way possible, and we're taking a look at 640 crypto projects that haven't pubished a single line of code in over a YEAR.

Episode 204 - Binance does an oopsie, BTC transactions hit the billions, and our co-host is heartbroken.
