Fake Gold | HODL Prep Mode | Crypto Bailouts - BBP97
Join Brett and Happy Shillmore (what do you think of the name change btw?) as they discuss the recent discovery of 93 tons of fake gold found in the gold markets. Fake gold is nothing new, but it made for a good discussion in how bitcoin and gold have their own pros and cons when being used as collateral. HODLers appear to be in 'full blown prep mode' according to data from Glassnode that shows 61% of btc hasn't moved in a year. The last time this amount of btc was 'hodled' was prior to the 2017 bull run. There may be an argument that hodlers are accumulating and hodling in preparation for the next move. The 'crypto industry' also benefitted from government loans from the recent stimulus bills. All of this and more.

The Pros & Cons of PayPal & Venmo Selling Bitcoin - BBP95
Join CH as he discusses the recent news that PayPal and Venmo will enable their users to buy and sell bitcoin directly inside of the app. There are pros and cons to "legacy FinTech" companies starting to interact with bitcoin. Over 300 million customers are now about to have access to bitcoin, but that also comes along with more custodian risk and more KYCed bitcoin. Not all is lost though, as this will also help to increase the distribution of bitcoins to new users, so long as they can eventually take self-custody.
