In this episode the team has Deja Vu as they talk about Waltonchain (again?) MtGox (still?) and the markets headed down (as usual?). The team is super excited about NEXT WEEK’s episode where they will be welcoming CryptoCandor to the show. That link is to her Youtube page, show some love! The team wraps it up by talking about their recording process, and of course there’s a Walton Chain roleplay.

Binance Has a massive hack, and doesn’t lose a single satoshi of user’s funds in the process. Here is the Binance explanation of how everything went down.

Coinbase is launching an index fund! Don’t get too excited if you’re in the US though. Accredited investors only.

MtGox is still sticking it to the crypto community all these years later. Here’s a graph that shows the exact time and amounts that the trustee accounts sold their BTC. And here is the full article.

SEC Releases a statement about incoming regulations. Here is that document please do not keep your funds on exchanges.

Walton chain is at it again. Here is the twitter image of them retracting their “partnership” statement.

NEO had a storm of bad and misinformation to deal with, and handled it like champions. The link is to a mega thread explaining everything, and here’s the originator retracting his original statement.

Twitter trolls be outta control.

And finally here’s our favorite Brazilian pastor on this episode of South America’s Dumbest Criminals.

Robin Hood is getting in the crypto game! You get a random stock valued between $2 and $200 and so do we, this is super exciting. Robin Hood has been one of the best experiences we’ve had with an “old school” exchange, and we’re super excited that they’re going to be bringing their talents to crypto.

CASH APP HAS BITCOIN! If you sign up through that link the show gets $5 and so do you! Stop the presses. The easiest to use money transfer application (yes it's easier than Venmo) now as a built in way to buy and sell Bitcoin. They even have a no - fee debit card you can use.

Binance Exchange Binance is the primary location for many of the coins that are not available on CoinBase. They have the best user experience, don't use the USDT as a primary trading pair, and have reasonable customer service. Give them a look.

Ledger Wallet Website This is where you buy the hardware wallet that we're always talking about on the show - we all use a Ledger Nano S.
