    113. TBR - El Salvador Adopts Bitcoin, Pipeline Hack & The Metaverse on Fox Business

    When we started this podcast, we predicted that there will be a phase of the industry that would see the adoption of cryptocurrencies at the country level. This level would be the last phase before we would have world wide adoption taking place. Today was the first step of that phase. El Salvador officially acknowledges Bitcoin as legal tender for the country. President Nayib Bukele of El Salvador is setting a precedence for the rest of the countries as the adoption of Bitcoin is imminent. The Colonial pipeline hack compromised a fundamental part of the US infrastructure, however did the FBI really compromise Bitcoin? Finally we debate on whether we're going to see a resurgence of Bitcoin and the field of cryptocurrencies sooner rather than later.

    Topics:


    First up, El Salvador Makes Bitcoin Legal Tender

    Next, What Does it Mean for a Country to Get into Crypto

    Then, Can Ransom Ware Using Bitcoin as Payment Tarnish its Image?

    Finally, Will We See Bitcoin Make a Comeback Sooner Rather than Later?

Crypto Intro - Audio Quality increase Episode 7

I keep hearing about bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies so when I looked them up to learn more, I kept seeing nothing but super technical conversations explaining what blockchain is. Listening to these guys give their own explanations on what crypto is and how it works in a relatable way has been a change of pace. I can almost explain this stuff to my own mom!

My only complaint is their audio quality. Luckily if you stick through all the way to episode 7, their audio quality drastically increases - no more background noises!. Great job and keep it up!
