This episode, we cover a broad range of topics from across the world of Bitcoin, emergent technology and geopolitics. To start with, we look at why Andreas Antonopoulos, the author of Mastering Bitcoin and The Internet of Money has refused to come to Australia due to the search and seizure laws. We then peer into China’s new digital currency measures and how they stack up against the rest of the world.

After that, we dig into the recent Libra announcement and talk about the regulatory actions and comments made by several governments in response. Even JP Morgan joins in on the fun! We also look at a recent ‘blockchain NBA contract’ and the oil shenanigans going on in Saudi Arabia.

Finally, we cover some Privacy and Security tips and check in with Jordan, who’s managed to find himself in yet another awkward situation.
