Thank You to Joel Deiz and Thomas Olson for coming on the show to talk about the state of Swarm.
Thank you to Chris DeRose and Joshua Unseth for the chit-chat recap of the week. I am looking into finding a permalink so you can simply click here to join the chit chat (an admin setting in the channel needs to change), but in the meantime please tweet @derosetech and he will grant you access.
Please contact me firstname.lastname@example.org with any Counterparty projects you are working on with suggestions to feature them on the show. Or contact me if you would like assistance or advice on how you can create your project on the Counterparty platform. I may not be able to answer your question or help your project, but I will do my best to find the person who can.
If you are an independent artist and would like to hear your song on this show, please email me at email@example.com and we can arrange something. Thank you to Cyrus Youngman and the Kingfishers for the audio segways.

Project of the Week
Joel Deitz and Thomas Olson from Swarm join me in discussion about the project. From the conversation, here are the relevant links:
Swarm Website - https://swarm.fund/
Cointelegraph article - http://cointelegraph.com/news/115218/swarm-shuts-down-as-pretty-boy-co-founder-blamed-for-demise
- Swarm Council Meeting - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qEOqkZGrYgw
BitCrystals can now be traded on Poloniex. Currently the price is at around 0.1 mBTC
- Some Tokenly services including Swapbot and Tend are down right now due to a bug. I asked Adam Levine for a comment and he stated the following:
On Saturday the 12th of September, Tokenly discovered a new bug that could effect swapbot vending machines under bitcoin stress test conditions currently being experienced by the network. Out of an abundance of caution, all Tokenly services have been temporarily halted while we sort out the issue. We anticipate services will be fully available by the evening of Monday the 14th and although the issue only impacted a fraction of orders placed if you placed an order with a swapbot on Saturday and something went wrong, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
FoldingCoin had its public meeting earlier today and is now available on YouTube. In the meeting, me and Jonas discuss the stats page James is working on, the new Folding levels, and a little bit of a brainstorming session. Also I announce that the final application to the IRS is in, and its only a matter of time before FoldingCoin Inc is officially a non-profit.
- GetGems has released a roadmap for features they see critical for the success of the application. Its a 20 page document but is a great read and some pages are only half pages.
In the Community
- Legendary Bitcointalk member jimbobway has released a new android app for looking at all available SOG cards in existence. They state that they may open source it for someone else to take over, so if you are interested, head on over to the BitCrystals forum thread.
