In this episode Eric Showers and I talk about MolochDAO -- the grant giving DAO being developed by Ameen Soleimani. We also touch on DAICOs and the possibility of merging the two into a MolochDAICO.
We then go over Ethereum clients, including the differences between full nodes, archive nodes, and light clients.
Eric Showers and I talk about the Constantinople hard fork and Grin. We go over all the EIPs included in Constantinople, as well as the re-entrancy bug and the subsequent delay of the hard fork. We also do an overview of Grin and Mimblewimble where we talk about the basic specs of the network as well as the privacy aspects of the Grin currency.

Despite the recent drop in price of BTC, we keep our heads high and look for opportunities to enter a trade for BTC. This time, I talk about areas of support and resistance, some possible entries for trades, as well as a new type of trading style!
Any questions or comments, please leave them below and I will get back to you!
On this special episode, we're honoured to have a special guest in the studio - Eric Showers. We talk a little bit about how Eric's Crypto experience has been so far, dive a little bit deeper into Ethereum, and as always, some trade talk.

On this episode, Art & Zach discuss the recent price action many alt coins have been experiencing while Bitcoin remains relatively stable. Also, an exciting airdrop that can earn you a couple of extra bucks as well as a plausible identity for Satoshi Nakomoto!

As we wait for the price of Bitcoin to break out of tight ranges, Zach & I talk about "alt-coin season" and how some coins with smaller market caps are starting to see some rather large moves.
This week, we talk about the recent effect Tether has had on the price of Bitcoin, a little bit more about Ravencoin, as well as compare current technicals to previous ones to try to gauge which way Bitcoin will go.
After a couple of weeks dealing with some technical difficulties, we're back !
The price of Bitcoin is still ranging between $6000 and $6800. We're still technically in the giant descending wedge that has been forming since early 2018.
In the alt-coin market, Ravencoin has seen an almost 100% increase!
So, we've decided to start a dedicated segment for chatting about market conditions and trading. Today, we talk about the recent bullish move of Bitcoin, a new indicator that can give you a better idea of when to enter a trade (long or short), and the crazy moves Ripple has been making !

Just on my own today ! I had a guest lined up but we had some technical difficulties on his end so I had to take a stab at it solo. As always, discussed the current state of Bitcoin as well as ETH and ETC, talked about a new cryptocurrency that everybody is "Raven" about, and why Bitcoin's security is at jeopardy in the near future.
We examine our drawn chart pattern to see whether or not it was accurate, discover a new "trading strategy", discuss how Loom has done the impossible when it comes to Blockchain Gaming, talk about crypto scams and random banter about the weekend !
