Flagship Friday

Episode 24

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.
