This is episode 187 of You, Me, and BTC – your liberty and Bitcoin podcast.

Principal: “Do NOT bring your cellular devices to school.”

That’s exactly how the SEC sounded to us this week when they declared that ICOs may be subject to their securities laws. It’s hilarious enough that the SEC claims authority to write stuff on paper and expect the entire globe to obey. …

Scaling, scaling, scaling. Everything is about scaling these days. Do we want SegWit2x? UASF? No changes? Something else?

To be honest, we’re kinda sick of talking about scaling, so tonight we’re gonna dive into something related but different: sidechains. Or more specifically, drivechains.
