This is episode 254 of You, Me, and BTC – your liberty and Bitcoin podcast.
First up this week, we'll cover a supposedly unhackable Bitcoin hardware wallet touted by the infamous John McAfee. His name is synonymous with digital security and he loves Bitcoin, so this must be a great device, right? Maybe.
When the company behind wallet, Bitfi, offered hundreds of thousands of dollars to anyone who could crack it, hackers got to work. Some were definitely able to manipulate the device, but did they ever technically hack it? What constitutes a real hack in general? How can this device claim to be unhackable in the first place? We'll have all the details and reactions tonight.
Then later in the show, we'll dive into a new report about the countless films influenced by the US military. This is nothing new or surprising, but this particular story does include a long list of affected movies and it's pretty crazy.
Tune in tonight at 9PM Eastern for all our hot takes and check the list below for some of the specific stories we'll cover!
