Episode 4: Ethereum, Decentraland and Rumours of ZimbabweCoin

With everyone back in the same location, we get back in the studio to discuss our next topic in our Blockchain Basics series – Ethereum and Smart contracts. We also touch on a bunch of interesting news – including the Russian CrypoRuble – and take a look at the Decentraland Project, OnChainFX and PIVX’s new Zerocoin protocol along the way.

As an added bonus, our intrepid reporter Jordan Cronje phones in from Zimbabwe, where he’s heard rumours that President Mugabe may be looking to create their own state-issued crypto.

***Note for those familiar with Crypto – you may want to skip the Blockchain Basics segment. We’ve put timestamps in the show notes if you do wish to skip ahead.***
