It’s Friday Flagship time and the whole crew is here to break down the week. During this episode we discuss the recent controversy surrounding the EOS main-net launch, the SEC chairman comments on which cryptocurrencies are likely to be securities, lightning seems to accomplish its goals, and Facebook reveals more about just how much they track. We also check in on Overstock’s crypto adventures and re-visit some Tether fears. There’s plenty to talk about this week and the CryptoBasic nerds are here to break it down for you.

Flagship Episode 11: 

CryptoCandor!

CryptoCandor ON THE SHOW!

Popular Youtuber CryptoCandor (Alex Pereira) is on the Flagship today! This is super exciting because not only is she our first ever guest, but she’s also got incredible content on her channel that feels extremely similar to ours – extremely unbiased information presented 4K HD! We talk everything from Binance to Cryptomatoes on this special Flagship episode. She announces who she’s picked for the portfolio contest, and gives her own picks if she were in. Check out these links to get a look at CryptoCandor!

LINKS TO TOPICS FROM THE SHOW

Lightning Network is Live: This is for the LTC and BTC blockchains. This is only for developers, and is not yet fully functional. This should provide a way for transaction fees to go down.

John Oliver takes on Crypto! Despite the fact that he says some bad things about crypto, I think this is incredibly fair. John particularly rags on our favorite Carlos Matos, and as a direct result of this an ex-Mighty Duck cast member was fired from a project (even though they say that’s not why).

Google bans Crypto Ads This is an extremely bad blow to the crypto space, and I really hope this gets under control sooner than later.

Binance continues to be a shining light in the crypto space. Just this week they’ve announce a $250,000 USD Bounty on information leading to the arrest of the attempted hackers. They’ve also announced that they intend to convert into a decentralized exchange and convert the Binance Token from ERC20 to their own blockchain, citing the need for decentralized exchanges.

Circle Invest is live (The company that bought Poloniex) and they have an extremely functional and sleek app. You can’t transfer any assets out and must cashout to USD, but this is a great user friendly way to get newcomers into crypto.

Winklevoss Twins would like to create a self-regulatory organization for Virtual Currency. Non-government regulation is needed, and it’s great to see someone taking the steps.

ICO’s are coming back to Korea!
