While we sit down to talk Masternodes, Jordan boards a “scientific research vessel” off the coast of Japan on the hunt for the elusive Bitcoin whale.

On the way, we discuss some of the news in the fortnight that was, including the failed Bitcoin ETF application in the US, Telegram Passport, the “world’s largest robot” and the upcoming touchdown of a space probe on an asteroid 3.2 billion kilometres from earth.

This week’s Privacy and Security section features Nextcloud, the self-hosted alternative to OneDrive, Google Drive and Dropbox.

If you’re asking “what is a masternode?”, you’re in the right place.
