This is episode 222 of You, Me, and BTC – your liberty and Bitcoin podcast.
Listen. If there's only one episode of YMB that you ever listen to, let it be this one. It's gonna be an absolute doozie because we have the scoopiest scoop on the planet. We literally have the whitepaper for Venezuela's future cryptocurrency and no one else has seen it yet.
As you may know, Nicolás Maduro (Venezuela's president) recently announced his plans for this oil-backed cryptocurrency called the "petro." As you should also know, Venezuela has been through a ton of crap lately as inflation rates have been through the roof (http://ymb.tc/e209).
Presumably, Maduro hopes this ICO will raise enough funds to get his country out of the gutter. But more likely, it will just turn into another way he ends up devastating his people.
Don't miss this outstanding show! We'll also have some special guests on the air to help talk everything over. The stream starts this Thursday at 9PM Eastern and we'll go as long as we have to. See you there!
