Find out the answers to these and other questions in this week’s episode of the unhashed podcast, featuring the Bitcoin Cowpoke himself, Jimmy Song. See you on the other side.

Weekly News Wrap Up:

  1. Bitmain, Roger Ver, Kraken Sued for Alleged Bitcoin Cash Hard Fork Manipulation

    1. Obviously, this seems frivolous, but if it’s upheld, then it could open the door to some weird incentives  

    2. From the suit: “Plaintiff seeks an injunction: (a) precluding Amaury Sechet, Shammah Chancellor, and Jason Cox via Bitcoin ABC from continuing to implement checkpoints on the Bitcoin Cash network and any other implementation of the software that would prevent the resulting chains from being able to be re-merged; and (b) requiring them to return the blockchain to its previously decentralized form with the previous consensus rules.”

      1. Who is responsible for keeping a network decentralized?

      2. If the court upholds this, how could they go about “return(ing) the blockchain to its previously decentralized form”

      3. Again the notion of fiduciary like responsibilities is coming up… Is there any liability that software devs do have? Should have?

  2. Coinbase adding shitcoins!

  3. Binance DEX coming to testNet soon

    1. How will DEXs change the exchange landscape?

    2. How long until this becomes the standard (if ever)?

    3. Where do we evolve from here?  

      1. Does the SEC enforcement of their regs onto DEXs have any impact?

      2. Etherdelta SEC enforcement

  4. Double spend on SV demonstrated just after the bch flippening

  5. Former IMF chief economist says Bitcoin is nothing more than a lottery ticket at this time

    1. Kenneth Rogoff stated that while some believe that cryptocurrencies have had their day and are on an irreversible downward slide, it is actually difficult to say with certainty that their value will actually fall to zero. In his view, several questions exist about the ability of large economies to successfully embrace cryptocurrency, which means that outside of joint regulatory action, national level adoption of cryptocurrencies will likely be pushed only by weak pariah states like Iran, Somalia, Venezuela, and North Korea.
