Shownotes for Episode 59 – The Bitcoin Center of Gravity
Bitfunder is dead, long live… Oh wait, there’s nothing replacing Bitfunder. I’m joined by Andreas and Stephanie to talk about the early demise of the budding Bitcoin Unlicensed Securities market, the reach of the SEC, the upcoming congressional hearings and Bitcoin’s new center of gravity.
Then, Protoshares is a new altcoin from invictus innovations claiming to be a crypto-ETF on everything produced by the Virginia based company. After launching last week, things quickly went exponential and more than 3 months worth of blocks were mined in less than a week. Daniel Larimer rejoins us at the end of today show for a quick post-mortem on what happened, what went wrong, and if anything about their plan has changed in light of recent changes.
But first, we’re talking Bitcoin and Startups in the silicon valley with Scott Robinson, let’s not keep him waiting – Enjoy the show!
