Episode 57 β€’ πŸš™ Monero Hack, Microsoft’s Doomsday Bunker & Magicpad’s Update

Let’s take a look at the news from the last fortnight, including the sneaky replacement of the Monero wallet with a malware-ridden alternative, Microsoft’s end-of-the-world storage for open-source code, and Tesla’s Cybertruck announcement.

In our cool tool, we re-explore the brilliant encryption toolkit Magicpad, by Hyun Seo (sorry for butchering your name in the show!) β€” and explore Mapradio, which lets you browse registered radio license holders around the world.

Lastly, for our Privacy & Security tool, we talk about HodlHodl, a fantastic B2B bitcoin exchange.
