Episode 52 • ⚖️ Bakkt, Wright, & Bitcoin Freedom

This episode, we cover the big news from the last month, including the launch of Bakkt, the digital assets exchange from the owner of the NYSE.

In other news, we discuss Bitcoin bank accounts, Craig Wright’s recent court victory, Unreal Engine’s LED wall, and Silicon Valley credit stores.

If you’re interested in accepting crypto payments, you’ll love this cool tool — Coinpayments.

For this episode’s feature, we narrate a brilliant piece by Gigi on “The Rise of the Sovereign Individual”, written in light of the 2019 Hong Kong Democracy Protests. It’s an energetic examination of the power of money — and how much we have to lose when money is controlled centrally.

Thanks for listening — enjoy!
