Episode 45 • 🚅 Globalcoin, Trust Scores, Tunnels & Trains

Audio warning: we’re really sorry; Joe’s computer didn’t record the audio properly this episode, so we’re relying on Matt’s version of the audio recording, so the episode sounds sub-par.

This episode, we discuss a host of Bitcoin news involving AT&T, whole foods, and a raft of other retail brands. We also cover the 51% attack on Bitcoin Cash / BCH, CoinGecko’s new trust score.

We move on to discussion about Facebook’s “GlobalCoin” currency, DHS’ drone service, 1TB MicroSD cards and a host of tunnel, train and transport news from the Boring Company, China, Ford and Dyson.

Finally, we wrap things up with an introduction to Maildrop, a temporary email address service — followed by a call with Dan. Check it out!
