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

The CryptoBasic crew is back from the dead! Last week Brent had the amazing idea of recording an episode while sitting on the passenger seat of his car and talking to the rest of us through his mobile data connection, all while recording NOT through an actual microphone, but an external recorder. This trainwreck of a sentence itself should be, I believe, enough explanation as to why last week's Flagship didn't happen. This week however, all's set to go and we're back at it again! Tune in to find out what's up with plagiarization accusations against Binance, learn about bitcoin hitting the ONE BILLION USD in a single transaction milestone, discover the true identity of Karim's CryptoBasicStalker, and find out why our co-host Adam Levy ditched this episode. Spoiler alert: he's got the heartache blues. Dive into the cryptoverse with us on this week's Flagship Friday. What have we released? Interview with Marius Interview with CryptoCanary Rapid Fire Russell Okung - Left Tackle for the Chargers - Changed his Twitter Handle to Pay me in Bitcoin Substratum Officially Dead after raising 13.8M just a couple years ago - lays off last working engineer Dan Weibe Burger King in Germany now accepts Bitcoin.

Episode 197 - Bitcoin milestones, the NBA dabbles in blockchain tech, and more

Today's show is very very crypto. Not that it isn't generally, but most of the time we tend to touch on other issues too - politics, economics, business - but not today. Today's episode is all about cryptocurrency: we talk about Nano's lightning fast confirmation times, Bitcoin's new milestone of 85% of its total supply mined, as well as Litecoin's imminent halving, with the reward going down to 12.5 LTC per block. Additionally, a sort of motif is present throughout this entire episode. One not very pleasant, one could say. I mean we've got senator Crapo talking about Bitcoin's resilience one one hand, and a "Shitcoin Futures Index" on the other... everything's a bit poopy. This is not a shitty episode however - and that's for sure. Dive into the cryptoverse with us on today's Flagship Friday. Links from the show: -V19 Nano confirmation times are happening very fast.

Episode 196 - Flagship Friday #83

Another Friday, another Flagship, another excuse to dive into all the crypto shenanigans and goings-on of this pastweek. What has Justin Sun been up to again and how is it related to the word "chicken"? What do recent stats show about the future use cases of Bitcoin? Could it become the global reserve currency of the 21st century, replacing the gold standard and becoming the basis for a worldwide system of Cyber-Keynesianism or is the person writing this just a closeted bitcoin maximalist? What more couldKarim possibly have to say about macroeconomics and politics and what's his new segment all about? Additionally, today we talk once again about our favorite subject of the month, the Ministry of Truth's cryptocurrency, Libra. Did I say Ministry of Truth? I meant Facebook.

Colin created ZuckBucks on a whim, but never expected that it would actually blow up, gathering a dedicated community around it and even making it onto exchanges.
