You, Me, and BTC Podcast E242

YMBLive E185

This is episode 185 of You, Me, and BTC – your liberty and Bitcoin podcast.

Principal: "Do NOT bring your cellular devices to school."

Class: "roflul kk good luck."

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. It's even funnier when …
