You, Me, and BTC Podcast E249

This is episode 249 of You, Me, and BTC – your liberty and Bitcoin podcast.

A few weeks back, we covered several aspects of Signal censorship. Many governments (Iran is particularly egregious) block apps and services they don’t like. And lots of them dislike Signal because it lets people stay private.

It appears that Iran now has similar concerns about cryptocurrency. Over the past few months, authorities began cutting off access to crypto exchanges …

You, Me, and BTC Podcast E248

This is episode 248 of You, Me, and BTC – your liberty and Bitcoin podcast.

We love charity, of course. But do we really want Coinbase in charge of it? The company is already notorious for mishandling customers and cash, so why would anyone trust them to give money away properly?

And later in the show, let’s …

You, Mr, and BTC Podcast E246

This is episode 246 of You, Me, and BTC – your liberty and Bitcoin podcast.

We’d like to think Bitcoin is perfectly clean and pure, but bad actors are everywhere. Years ago, we learned that fake money and bots were boosting the Bitcoin price at Mt. Gox. And some new research suggests that the same thing happened last year with Bitfinex and Tether.

Is this really news, though? Haven’t we known all along that …

GDPR and Blockchain – YMB Podcast E244

You, Me, and BTC E244

This is episode 244 of You, Me, and BTC – your liberty and Bitcoin podcast.

If “privacy policy bingo” was a real game, everyone on the internet would have won this month. Google, Twitter, Uber, the Tooth Fairy, and everyone else made changes recently because of the European Union’s new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

Data protection is certainly important, but it’s highly likely that the EU went way too far with this one. We’ll …
