After the Halving Bad News for Friday, May 15th

What will the price of Bitcoin be after the halving? After much speculation, many predictions and a bucketfull of prognostications, we finally have the answer. And we also have our first glimpse into what happens next. Craig Wright threatened to crash the price of Bitcoin, but didn’t. YouTube cancelled a live Cointelegraph stream that we were on, declaring it to be harmful content. And the Topps trading card company makes blockchain history by relaunching a classic brand as non-fungible tokens… and selling out in just over a day. And that’s just half the story. In fact, for this post-halving episode, we are going to deliver just half the news that we usually do. Four years from now, we’ll do it again. And at that rate, by 2040 our episode will only be one-minute long. This is the Bad News episode #406 of The Bad Crypto Podcast.

The Future of Blockchain with Don Tapscott

Out of all the people in all the countries in all of the world in all of the galaxy in all of the Universe, it’s likely safe to say that one man and his organization have done more research into blockchain technology than any one else That man is Don Tapscott and the Blockchain Research Institute. It’s a pretty big claim and might offend the aliens of Xirplatz, who might lay claim to having pursued blockchain millions of years before we did. But screw those guys. They are ten gazillion light years away and won’t hear this show until long after we are all dead and gone. Besides, Xirplatzians are prone to hysteria. Don, however, is not. The depth of his knowledge into the technology that we are banking on for the future is unsurpassed. And on today’s show we get to probe his brain to discover that which we do not know. So join us as we tap Don Tapscott’s mind for all things blockchain on episode #405 of The Bad Crypto Podcast.

Millennials in Blockchain with Mike Rogers

Millennials. They are the Generation Y that has now moved into the workforce and is shaping our future. That is until Generation Z comes of age and pushes them aside to take over.
