This is episode 206 of You, Me, and BTC – your liberty and Bitcoin podcast.
We've heard all kinds of Bitcoin slurs over the years. Bitcoin is useless. Evil. Too volatile. Overvalued. It's magic internet money. (Okay, that last one is basically a compliment.) But frankly, most people who insult Bitcoin are just plain wrong.
What are the worst things people say about Bitcoin? YMB's own Zack Voell knows. He compiled a list of the top 5 dumbest things you can say about Bitcoin, posted it on Facebook, and generated all kinds of discussion. This week's show is all about that list and the various opinions that Zack's "friends" shared in the comments section. As a bonus, we'll also cover one (kinda) smart thing that people say about Bitcoin.
Also this week: We'll touch on Coinbase's failure to resist the IRS, the soaring Bitcoin price, and the best time(s) to buy crypto. Catch the livestream tonight at 9PM Eastern and check the list below for some of the specific stories we'll cover!
