On Todays Show
Then, Andreas breaks down the Bitcointalk.org subpoena and we devote the last half of the show to a lively debate about the Freeze feature that was added into ripple and other dollar-gateway-enabling cryptocurrencies for what might have seemed like noble reasons at the time but which might prove to be a real invitation for trouble sooner rather than later.
"...This is a solution that not only destroys the currency, but doesn't even achieve its supposed goal"

Coming Soon from Tokenly
Todays episode of Let's Talk Bitcoin is brought to you by the Tokenly project and our first product, rentable Swapbot Vending Machines. Let's say you sell coffee by the pound or web design services by the hour.
It's easy, fast and cheap to create a token on the bitcoin blockchain that YOU control with a specific name that represents your product or service and is made valuable because you will accept it for something valuable.
You'd create a COFFEEPOUND or DESIGNHOUR token and then rent a Swapbot vending machine for 5-10 dollars per month to automatically sell your new token 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. You'll set the price in dollars and it'll be payable in Bitcoin and potentially LTBCOIN, Storj or other Counterparty based tokens you choose to accept
When someone with your token wants to use it for the "stuff" it represents, they go to your website, load up a shopping cart and check out. When it's time to pay, aside from the normal credit card and bitcoin payment options, our product TokenSlot adds the ability to customize and specify what tokens you accept.
If you've got an existing online or brick and mortar business and are interested in working on a pilot project to see if tokenization is right for you,
email [email protected] to start the conversation.
