  1. I hate empty block miners and high fees, cause bitcoin wanted to be for local small transactions, now it is a digital gold standard…

  2. This show should be more objective. It is overly bullish.

    No one cares about the china ban, really?? Bitcoin restored itself? – its idling at under 4k from a high of 5k. Market aligns perfectly with a bubble graph (bull trap at the moment). Most people get into bitcoin, not because they believe in its utility, but with an aim to make money – given this, people aim to exit at a profit (or if things are going south, to minimise loss).

  3. Charlie Lee tweeted that the LTC – VTC atomic swap was successful late yesterday. Huge for crypto, LTC and VTC. Next up, LTC-BTC atomic swap…

  4. China has miners and now they have executives that can’t leave, access to BCH, BCH has a mysterious mining block with over 51%, – seems they have everything they need to “develop” or just take over a coin. I’m watching the story just to see what they do. It’s very interesting.

  5. wicked audio vid 🙂 cheers !!! 🙂 ha – no screen share until 4 mins in, then only camera on Thomas..not sure…blame YT… !!!
    Shapeshift currently shows everything except DASH as down – DASH is pushing on to a new ATH as far as I can see…could be as much China related… 🙂
    Cheers Thomas !!! 🙂

  6. I want to switch to Segwit but Byteball only accepts P2PKH addresses for staking btc for their airdrop. I’m at the point where I’m thinking about giving up free money in order to switch to a segwit address

  7. What scares me… this 21 Million number. If I recall correctly Litecoin was a fork of Bitcoin… and Litecoin now has a final total of ~84 Million. This number can obviously be changed in BTC and nothing stops devs et al. from one day pushing the need for more than 21 mil.
