This is episode 200 of You, Me, and BTC – your liberty and Bitcoin podcast. That's right, we added one to our hundreds digit so tonight, we celebrate!
But before we get around to partying, we have to cover this week's absolutely shocking news. The headlines blindsided us all yesterday. Just admit it. You had no idea this one was coming. The 2X half of SegWit2X was called off - for now.
And this sudden change of heart begs a very important question: Is there an ulterior motive? This debate has raged so hard for so long, so why would the 2Xers just give up? Are they planning some new kind of manipulation? Tune in for our thoughts.
Then later in the show, as we often do for special episodes, we'll spend some time reflecting on the history of YMB. We'll even go for a whole extra hour tonight as part of the celebration so you do NOT want to miss this!
Catch the livestream tonight at 9PM Eastern and check the list below for some of the specific stories we'll cover!
