 Unhashed Podcast - No Tendies for BTC in China | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: Unknown

On this episode of the Unhashed Podcast, we talk Coinbase 2FA slipups, the normalization of Ethereum consensus failures, anti-bitcoin protests in El Salvador, and IMF & CCP critiques of bitcoin. Lastly, we encourage Colin to stop farting on people on planes. Customers of leading United States crypto exchange Coinbase have spent the weekend panicking after the exchange mistakenly sent emails to users stating that their two-factor authentication (2FA) settings had been changed. On Friday, Coinbase accidentally sent the email to 125,000 of its customers, resulting in widespread public backlash. Coinbase took to Twitter on Sunday to apologize for the mishap, stating, 'œWe're laser-focused on building trust and security into the crypto community so that the open financial system we all want is a reality. We recognize that issues like this can hurt that trust.' Despite Coinbase's apology, many of its users reported taking significant measures in response to the email while fearing that their accounts were being targeted by hackers, including overhauling security settings and liquidating their crypto holdings. Comments on the exchange's social media also suggest that numerous customers were unable to access the Coinbase app for several days after the incident. 'œWe will continue to work to gain back the trust of every one of our customers who was impacted by those notifications,' Coinbase added. The firm also announced it is reimbursing users with $100 worth of Bitcoin (BTC). '" Ethereum experienced a chain split due a number of network validators, also called nodes, failing to upgrade their software. On Aug. 24, the developer team behind the popular Ethereum software client Geth released an emergency hotfix to a security vulnerability in its code that would have prevented certain users from producing blocks. The Go Ethereum team had disclosed a vulnerability on Aug. 18, saying they would release a patch, but did not specify the exact nature of the vulnerability in an effort to prevent an attack: 'œThe exact attack vector will be provided at a later date to give node operators and dependent downstream projects time to update their nodes and software,' wrote Ethereum team lead Pƒter Szilƒgyi in Aug. 24 GitHub patch notes. However, it would seem some users identified the exploit that was hotfixed by the Geth team and are currently exploiting older versions of the Geth software. Though the Geth team emphasized that all users should upgrade their software immediately, only about 30% of users upgraded to the latest version, according to data from As background, Geth is the most relied-upon software to connect to the Ethereum blockchain, being run by roughly 75% of the users. This is not the first time Ethereum has experienced a chain split due to users running outdated versions of Geth. In November, the Ethereum network saw a similar disturbance after users failed to upgrade to the latest Geth release, version 1.10.X. At the time, Geth developers said the event was due to a lack of communication about the urgency of the upgrade. '" Hundreds of protesters took to the streets of El Salvador to raise their voices against President Nayib Bukele's decision to make Bitcoin (CRYPTO: BTC) legal tender. What Happened: On Sept 7, Bukele will introduce the much-debated Bitcoin Law in the country. According to the text of this Law, all economic agents must accept Bitcoin along with the dollar as a means of payment. Bukele says that the Bitcoin Law will benefit the people and save close to $400 million in remittance commissions. In addition, it will guarantee instant and more secure financial transactions. But the people of El Salvador are not entirely convinced with it. Hundreds of proteste

 Unhashed Podcast - Mario Shills His Bags | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: Unknown

After a special guest runs into an unexpected event, Colin Bryan and Mario are left wondering what they should talk about. It's a good thing Bitcoin is never boring. In this weeks UNSCRIPTED episode, we let Mario shill all his bags, including Blockstream's $3.2B valuation, Ledn's Proof of reserves, Coinbase's new phone support line and how a drug dealer got his BTC back from Swedish authorities using this one weird trick. Discussion on Blockstream $3.2 B valuation, going to start mining Discussion on Ledn Proof of reserve Coinbase has announced a new support phone line for customers who believe their account has been compromised by outside actors. Users will be able to speak to a live support agent, who can kick off an investigation immediately. In an industry where support tickets and emails are the standard method of communication, Coinbase expects that this implementation could help users save valuable time when dealing with this type of crisis. Man bites dog, crypto edition The Swedish government has been forced to return over $1.5 million in bitcoin to a drug dealer after its value surged while he was in custody. Authorities in Sweden seized 36 BTC from the drug dealer, worth just under $150,000 at the time of his prosecution two years ago, according to a report Friday by U.K. newspaper The Telegraph. By the time the Swedish Enforcement Authority came to auction off the bitcoin, its value had appreciated to the extent that only three needed to be sold for the original value to be recouped. The authority must now return the remaining 33 bitcoin to the drug dealer, which prosecutor Tove Kullberg has described as 'œunfortunate.

 Meet the Taco Plebs - Being Optimistic About The Future Of Bitcoin with Josef T'tek | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: Unknown

Austrian economics is a very common topic of discussion and study within the bitcoin community. Being the base economic theory upon which we find bitcoin resting, it makes sense that understanding this would be a primary lead for someone to get into bitcoin. Josef T„'tek, one of our regular contributors here at Bitcoin Magazine, is an example of this. T„'tek has written some fantastic articles for us, including 'œYour Financial Data Is Not Private, Bitcoin Can Fix That,' 'œHere's Why Bitcoin Will Rejuvenate Your Hope In Life,' and 'œBitcoin Is The Sustainable Money Europe Deserves.' Bullish on both bitcoin and on life, T„'tek maintains an optimistic outlook that bears witness to the good bitcoin is capable of doing. In our interview, we discussed how his foundations in Austrian economics lead him to Bitcoin, and how the reverse is often true of bitcoiners. We then discussed how Bitcoin has impacted his life, both in personal preferences and in his career. We touched on what he believes is the most important part of people's bitcoin education '" in his opinion, an understanding of fiat. Finally, we discussed what he is looking forward to in the space, and his bullish price thoughts. He said, 'œin the short term, we are usually too optimistic. In the long term, we are too pessimistic." Check out the podcast above and be sure to read our written interview.

 Bitcoin Magazine Podcast - Operating a Business on Bitcoin with Chris Gimmer | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: Unknown

Fiat cash, aka government-issued currency, may be singing its swan song. The good news? Bitcoin and free markets have the potential to help people claim back their sovereignty.

In an ever-evolving global situation, Chris shares about why he's moving from Canada to the U.S., and how using a divisible, portable currency allows both brands and individuals to break out of the limitations provided by fiat currency, despite their geographical location.

 Meet the Taco Plebs - Memes Will Take Bitcoin To The Moon with @Chad_Capital | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: Unknown

Understanding bitcoin can change your life. Once you do understand it, your entire system for evaluating what is worthy of your time, money and effort is also changed. I discussed this idea and more with The Bitcoin Conference's latest addition to the team, Brad, on Twitter as @Chad_Capital. He and I discussed how he first heard about Bitcoin, which was a result of the infectious excitement many feel about Bitcoin once they understand it. In addition to this, we discussed the power of memes and how they, through humor, convey commonly understood ideas of the absurdity of the fiat world we live in. We finally finish off with what he is looking forward to in the bitcoin space, including a shoutout for Bitcoin 2022, and his final bullish price prediction.

 What Bitcoin Did - WBD330: A Plague of Malice: The State v Julian Assange | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: Unknown

Location: Remotely Date: Tuesday, 30th March Company: Role: N/A A world where the people are afraid to hold institutions and governments accountable for their actions is a dystopian reality. Julian Assange founded Wikileaks in 2006 to defend against injustices, hypocrisy, and tyranny; he published the truth. And for these actions, he has spent ten years fighting for his freedom.

 What Bitcoin Did - WBD329: Bitcoin's Path to $10 Trillion with Cameron & Tyler Winklevoss | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: Unknown

Location: Remotely Date: Wednesday 31st March Company: Gemini Role: Co-Founders Earlier this year, bitcoin hit a significant milestone when the market capitalisation (the price of the entire current supply) hit $1trillion for the first time. As Cameron Winklevoss said, "from white paper to $1 trillion, bitcoin is eating gold alive." Cameron and Tyler expect this trend to continue. With bitcoin as digital 'gold 2.0' that is more scarce, transferable and a better store of value than gold, it is just a matter of time until it eclipses gold's $10 trillion market cap. To welcome the show's newest sponsor, I talk with Cameron & Tyler Winklevoss, Gemini's co-founders. We discuss their case for $10 trillion bitcoin, sponsoring devs, proof of reserves and whether governments will ban bitcoin.

 Bitcoin Magazine Podcast - The Truth Behind Bitcoin's Opposition with Seb Bunney | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: Unknown

Despite the multitude of opinions on Bitcoin and its future, the reality is that we are at a huge inflection point in history. Our guest today, Seb Bunney, explains why the decentralization of the economy presents us with an exceptional opportunity to build equality and escape this economic modern-day slavery perpetuated by banks and the government.

Expect to come away with an excellent gateway into why Bitcoin might be a threat to the US dollar, plus some useful avenues for further exploration.

 What Bitcoin Did - WBD328: Bonds, Inflation and the GBTC Premium with Lyn Alden | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: Unknown

Location: Remotely Date: Friday 26th, March Company: Role: Macroeconomist This month we have seen the markets signal an expected increase in inflation; while bond prices are a good indicator, Lyn Alden explains that just looking at bonds or the Consumer Price Index (CPI) does not tell the whole story. Price changes can vary wildly in services, commodities, and especially asset prices, but inflation affects different people in different ways. Outside of inflation, Bitcoiners have been looking closely at the Grayscale Trust (GBTC) recently and specifically the premium. I asked Lyn why people would pay less (or more) than the market price of Bitcoin for shares of GBTC. There are several reasons that GBTC is down recently, one of which is the potential approval of a Bitcoin ETF. Canada recently approved a Bitcoin ETF, with significant demand. An ETF in the United States is still being held up by regulators, despite increasing applications from institutions like Fidelity. But the rumour is one is right around the corner, and it would likely have significantly more demand than Canada's. In this interview, I talk to Lyn Alden, a macroeconomist and Lyn Alden Investment Strategy founder. We discuss bond yields, the effects of the rising inflation rate, the GBTC premium, and potential Bitcoin ETFs.

 Bitcoin Bottom Line - Inflation and Politics | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: Unknown

In this episode of the 'œBitcoin Bottomline,' hosts Steven McClurg and C.J. Wilson discussed how to alter your portfolio allocation based on inflation, what the infrastructure bill means for Bitcoin and how legislative involvement plays a part in the Bitcoin space. This episode dove into the details of the proposed U.S. infrastructure bill, including providing perspective on the terminology in the bill. McClurg explained the term 'œbroker' and how the definition of the word in the new infrastructure bill differs from that of a crypto broker, using the example of a real estate broker. McClurg explained how bitcoin falls under the same rules as real estate, since it's considered by the IRS to be property and not currently viewed as a security by the U.S. Securities And Exchange Commission. He went on to say that in terms of the new bill, bitcoin 'œshould be an exemption, and I think it will be.' They later discussed Wilson's meeting with Senator Ted Cruz and his interest in Bitcoin, which was made possible by the actions that Bitcoiners have taken in outreach to political representatives to publicly speak on the matter. Inflation is on the rise, and McClurg gave some advice to listeners: 'œIt doesn't make sense to own bonds anymore,' he said. 'œOwning property, bitcoin, real estate, art, or any other kind of hard asset, those are the only things that can protect you from inflation that's coming.' Wilson touched on the 'œfreedom' and 'œfuture' aspects of Bitcoin. 'œWhatever you have in your bitcoin holdings today could potentially be a down payment for a house in the future,' he said. Wilson and McClurg closed out the episode with a conversation about how inflation might be worse than we thought. 'œYou're seeing people gobbling up all these hard assets that are saying '˜this is a special thing because it's unique.,' Wilson stated. McClurg shared another perspective, explaining how 'œnot everyone has the ability to plow into hard assets to protect themselves.' This begs the question: With the prices of houses and cars exponentially increasing, while wages stay relatively the same, how will the average American, living paycheck to paycheck, retire?
