This is episode 216 of You, Me, and BTC – your liberty and Bitcoin podcast.
First of all, he's BAAAAAACK! After a few weeks of running around the country, Daniel Brown is back in the hotseat and ready to talk Bitcoin. Don't miss the big return!
For today's show, we'll do something a little different. We decided it might be fun to share all kinds of tidbits about ourselves, the history of YMB, and how we run things around here.
There's no particular reason for this topic selection. We just realized that there are plenty of meta-YMB details worth mentioning so we thought we'd take part of an episode to let you in on it all.
Also today: Some thoughts on Ripple and other crypto scams. Bitcoin's properties make it an excellent target for thieves, so we want to cover some of the countless ways that newbs have been burnt over the years.
Catch the livestream tonight at 9PM Eastern and check the list below for some of the specific stories we'll cover!
"Between June 2011 and November 2016 there was a new [bitcoin] scam nearly once a day. Vasek and Moore found a total of 1780 distinct scams by scouring reports on the popular cryptocurrency message board site https://t.co/gV4omN7NGt." https://t.co/D2JiUhLAer
