Episode 90: Halving Countdown: Will Bitcoin Moon?
This is an interesting episode as we talk about these topics: the US Senate floating using blockchain to vote remotely, a coin (which you've probably heard of) that's up 600%, a question on bitcoin halving, and motorcycles.
For News Break, we talk about the US Senate floating blockchain for the "Continuity of Senate Operations and Remote Voting in Times of Crisis". In the April 30 memo, the reason why blockchain may be considered is that "with its encrypted distributed ledger, blockchain can both transmit a vote securely and also verify the correct vote." We weigh in on the pros and cons of this move.
In Token Time, we feature DigiByte which is #31 as per CoinMarketCap. We discuss the numbers, how valuable is this project, and the context of the feud between DigiByte and Binance.
We answer Pope's question in Whatcha Thinkin': When is the best time to buy bitcoin? Is it during, before, or after the halvening?
Listen to our answer to Pope's question in this episode as we wait for the bitcoin halvening. You can ask us a question too, by sending us an audio message at ask.beards.live
For Manspreading, we talk about motorcycles.
