This is episode 208 of You, Me, and BTC – your liberty and Bitcoin podcast.
As the Bitcoin price continues to soar to mind-boggling heights, some people just have to kill the buzz. There are plenty of tweeps out there who look for every possible opportunity to discredit crypto, likely because they feel bitter for never investing in it.
To be fair, there's absolutely nothing wrong with criticism. We need to be able to take it, and that's exactly what we're going to do today. We'll walk through and respond to some of the most popular Bitcoin "problems" that have made the rounds lately.
For example: Neo-Nazis use Bitcoin. Steam quit accepting Bitcoin for video games and related digital content. Bitcoin uses more energy than entire countries. We'll cover all that and more in this episode.
Catch the livestream tonight at 9PM Eastern and check the list below for some of the specific stories we'll cover!
- Neo-Nazi wealth is rapidly growing. Why? Bitcoin.
- Steam is no longer supporting Bitcoin
- Steam drops Bitcoin support due to volatility and $20 transaction fees
- How much energy does bitcoin mining really use? It's complicated
