The Flagship is ready to sail! This week we kick off the show with Karim getting all fired up about corruption and a certain US Congressman… looking at you Brad Sherman. ಠ╭╮ಠ Brent has some words of approval for Coinbase and its handling of its upcoming coin considerations (ADA, XLM, ZEC, ZRX, BAT). We also look at a cryptocurrency study from Croatia (good job boys!), Brent defends EOS (yup, seriously) and has to eat some crow, Vitalik has some tough questions for the community, and the new CEO of Goldman Sachs sets his eyes on cryptocurrency, and the boys go on some off topic rants.
