Round Table: Substratum Red Flags featuring Brian Li and William McKenzie

 Round Table: Substratum Red Flags

Round Table: Substratum Red Flags

Today we have a unique show for you. In previous flagships we’ve discussed whether or not Substratum is a scam. When we did that we cited an article written by Brian Li. He reached out to us and was willing to present his research process, his evidence, and his thoughts on the show. He also invited William McKenzie as well to talk about his research, his insights, and his thoughts. The end result is a long episode that shows the process of trying to do due diligence on a coin.

What to do with BCH?

Basic Blitz

So the Bitcoin Cash fork is still somewhat undecided. We weren’t really sure how to update the audience, so it’s TIME for a Basic Blitz. We have Brant Tudor back on the show to discuss what exactly is going on with BAB, BSV, BCH, BCHABCDEFGHIJLKMNO, and more. Brant touches on some mining topics, and this ends up being a longer episode than anticipated! Enjoy!

#46

The CryptoBasic team is headed to Thailand for a conference with Beyond Blocks. They spend a bunch of time in the front of the show talking about that – and then move on to the usual. EOS still irks the team, Mike talks about the different types of ERC tokens, some Cardano drama has concluded in a very positive way, and the team responds to a rant.

Round Table: Bitcoin Cash Fork featuring Brant Tudor

BCHFork.jpg

Round Table

Bitcoin Cash Hard Fork - with Brant Tudor

Alright, we admit it. The CryptoBasic team was slacking on covering this Bitcoin Cash fork. So what do we do since the fork is tomorrow? Well we went and found a person that we respect that ACTUALLY knew what was going on, and brought him on the show to talk about it.

Brant Tudor is a doctoral candidate with the Department of Chemistry at the University of South Florida. He has B.S. degrees in Chemistry and Computer Science and currently works as part of a research team developing molecular simulation software. He has been interested in crypto for a few years, invested for two, and his favored Bitcoin is BCH.

Flagship Friday 43: What is Initiative Q? Bitcoin turns 10, and a new stablecoin.

 Flagship Friday #43

Flagship Friday #43

What is Initiative Q? Bitcoin turns 10 years old this week. Square is coming up with a cold storage solution. The team talks about another shady guy named Justin in the crypto space, and they tackle a really fun mailbag section where Karim brings back the 4th grader from a few weeks ago, which he still has as a weapon.

Square Cash has been a fun way to interact with Bitcoin for a while now. The CEO of Square is VERY pro Bitcoin, and now he's releasing a system to the open source that will facilitate the use of the payment processor Square. Justin Tabb from substratum is a very interesting guy. He definitely has a checkered past, and SOMEONE really has it out for him. We look at all of the evidence thrown out there to say that this guy isn't really on the up and up. Initiative Q is the newest viral spam that you're getting on Facebook from your friends. Those that aren't in the know might even be coming to you as their "crypto guy" and asking you about it like it's a cryptocurrency. Coinbase and Circle have teamed up to come up with a new stablecoin that should be able to rival the controversial Tether. It joins all of the other options as a strictly better Stablecoin than Tether is - when will these exchanges come around? Bitcoin turns 10 years old on October 31. I know many of us are barely looking at ONE year of learning what Bitcoin is, but it's been here, and it's going to keep being here. Find out what Lawrence H White, the Austrian School economist that works for the Cato institute, had to say on the topic.

What does blockchain have in common with religion? Are some cryptocurrency leaders like a cult? What would a religion look like if it were created ON the blockchain? The team sits down and discusses the somewhat surprising connection between religion and tech. The team definitely has a bias towards being anti-theistic, but gives this topic a chance on this episode of the CryptoBasic Podcast.
