Bitcoin out of the Box
Bitcoin out of the Box is the cryptocurrency podcast that reveals what's really happening behind the scenes. Covering Bitcoin, Ethereum, other top cryptocurrencies and the hottest trends such as decentralised finance (DeFi) and non-fungible tokens (NFTs), we bridge the knowledge gap between institutional investors and the average retail investor.
Why Is Bitcoin Crashing? What Will Happen Next???
Bitcoin and Ethereum prices have appeared to be in a free fall. The falling cryptocurrency prices have dampened the celebration mood of retail crypto investors. Cryptocurrency prices fell along with stock markets after the Federal Reserve released the minutes of its December meeting in which officials discussed the possibility of earlier and faster interest rate hikes and shrinking the Fed's $8.3 trillion balance sheet. In this video, I will talk about all the possible factors that contributed to this dip we are having right now.

Ultimate tool for trading like a BOSS (feat. Clover Finance)
Major hurdles for people getting into trading in cryptocurrency and Decentralised Finance (DeFi) are that there are too many chains and difficulty in understanding how to send transactions. Clover Finance ($CLV) aims to solve this with their multi-chain connected wallet where DeFi users can directly connect to the Ethereum, Polkadot, Kusuma, Binance Smart Chain, Avalanche, Fantom, AND Edgeware blockchains seamlessly on the Clover interface.

Instead, Clover will act on the sender's behalf and pay gas fees with the same token being transacted by the user. I interview Cofounders Norelle Ng and Burak Keçeli to how Clover Finance works to solve the issues plaguing cryptocurrency transactions.

Have they solved the scaling problem? (feat. Polygon Finance)
Ethereum is currently the preferred blockchain development platform, but it has significant limitations. For instance, the network can get very clogged, and when this happens gas fees for transactions are very expensive. This prevents Ethereum from scaling i.e. being able to handle more projects building and running effectively on their network. Polygon Finance (formerly Matic) may have finally found a solution with their protocol and framework for building and connecting Ethereum-compatible blockchain networks. We sat down with Polygon's COO Sandeep Nailwal for a deep-dive into the technology behind their revolutionary solution.

THIS SECTOR is highly undervalued (feat. Hacken, HAPI)
Cryptocurrency and Bitcoin-related hacks resulted in losses of over US$3.5 billion in 2020 alone. With the popularity of decentralised finance (DeFi), it is common for billions of dollars to be locked into the project’s smart contracts in a matter of days. This makes them prime targets for hackers. Worse still, some projects “rug pull” their own investors and take off with their funds. This makes cybersecurity and smart contract auditing necessary for the continued survival of this space- and companies such as Hacken ($HAI) and HAPI hugely undervalued. We sat down with Dyma Budorin, to learn how they keep DeFi safe and how you can avoid losing your funds in hacks. BONUS: Stay tuned until the end to learn more about upcoming REWARDS for Hacken fans!

Leading the battle against Centralized Finance - Trustswap CEO Jeff Kirdeikis
Jeff's is leading the battle against Centralized Exchanges with the creation of Trustswap - a payment platform for different cryptocurrencies that offer multi-currency swaps, escrow payments, and crypto subscription payments.

We NEED Privacy in Crypto - Reuben Yap of Zcoin
One of the biggest misconceptions in cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin and Ethereum is that privacy is built-in by default. Unfortunately, this is not the case: once your cryptocurrency address is revealed, all transactions on that account can be tracked by anyone in the world. This is why privacy is important - as users are entitled to keep their income, spending, and transactional information private. This is possible with privacy based cryptocurrencies - however, there has been a lot of confusion in which privacy solution is the best. We talk to Project Steward of Zcoin, Reuben Yap about the privacy coin space how the technologies differentiate from each other.
