This is episode 180 of You, Me, and BTC – your liberty and Bitcoin podcast.
"Just lost 3k in the blink of an eye."
That's the depressing sentiment shared by a royally screwed Ethereum trader this week. Network congestion (probably) led to a significant ETH selloff, which led to cascading stop orders on the exchanges, which led to automatic ETH trades at extremely low prices. Everything functioned exactly as intended, according to GDAX.
How (and why) on earth did all this go down? Is Ethereum in trouble? Some people really think so. And of course we need to chime in with our own opinions, so ETH will be our first topic during tonight's livestream.
Then later in the show, we'll explore this week's news about SegWit2x and the New York Agreement. After surviving the recent UAHF storm, Bitcoin may finally have reached a level of consensus. SegWit is coming soon, if all goes well. Tonight we'll explain how the agreement came about, how we expect it to play out, and much more.
Tune in at 9PM Eastern and check the list below for some of the specific stories we'll cover!
