Episode 13: African Crypto, Auctus, Space and Dan’s Ultimate Pump
While the crypto markets have been about as exciting as a government press release, there’s been a lot happening elsewhere in the blockchain and tech space that hasn’t seen as much coverage. From space-catapult startups, IoT smart cities, clowns fooling code and countries launching cryptos, we’ve found plenty of talking points to counter the FUD.
We discuss the mass crypto adoption occurring in the developing world, the Auctus ICO, and several start-ups in the space exploration sector that may be worth a look to diversify your portfolio. Our Privacy and Security segment is back highlighting malware and operating systems, and we discuss liability for code.
Finally, Dan Dan the ICO Man joins us to spruik his latest product, Ultimate Pump, and Jordan Cronje checks in with a phone message.
