Episode 44 • 🐛 Bitcoin Uptick, Crypto City & Algae on the ISS

We discuss the latest news on Bitcoin adoption, including the Intercontinental Exchange’s crypto purchases throughout the crypto winter, as well as Starbuck’s latest blockchain moves with Microsoft and Facebook’s rumoured cryptocurrency.

Jordan Cronje also joins us to discuss the fake “Bitcoin City” in Malaysia, and we also discuss some space news from Elon Musk’s SpaceX and Jeff Bezos’ Blue Origin… and then we cover a crazy piece on the International Space Station’s new Algae “bioreactor”.
