Bitcoin Senate Hearing & Record Low Volatility – YMB Podcast E263

Zack at the Bitcoin hearing

This is episode 263 of You, Me, and BTC – your liberty and Bitcoin podcast.

If you're paying attention, you may notice some missing YMB episodes. We skipped straight from E260 to E263 because Dan's been out of town for a few weeks. Tim ran things solo for awhile, so the last few shows only exist on YouTube for now. Eventually we'll add them to our website and our podcast feeds and everywhere else...

But …

You, Me, and BTC E244

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

This is episode 243 of You, Me, and BTC – your liberty and Bitcoin podcast.

Yep. These two goons (Tim and Zack) will take over the show yet again tonight. It might be a disaster.

They say they'll cover Bitcoin price manipulation. Apparently the U.S. is investigating some old-fashioned tricks like wash trading, spoofing, and collusion, which could be happening in crypto.

Regulators Say Nice Things About Bitcoin. Do We Care? – YMB Podcast E226

You, Me, and BTC Podcast E226

This is episode 226 of You, Me, and BTC – your liberty and Bitcoin podcast.

The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) are some scary groups. They probably have the power to decimate parts of Bitcoin with the stroke of a pen. Of course, they don't legitimately have that power, but we sheeple concede that power to them in our imaginations.
