This Too Shall Pass

Crypto Podcasts and YouTubers

The cryptocurrency industry is still very new, and listening to podcasts or watching YouTube videos can be dangerous if they're not from a trusted source. There are many maximalists that promote their coin or token and dismiss all the others. There are even crypto scams ("send us 1 ETH and we will send you 2 ETH back"). There are empty ICOs, and YouTubers that try to sell you something. Everybody has a strong opinion as to where the price of a Token/Coin will go. So, who can you trust? In this week's Crypto Corner, Robert Koenig presents a list of podcasts and YouTube Channels we subscribe to. Let us know who you are following in the comments below.

Coffee Break - June 1, 2020

  • Episode 61
  • June 1, 2020
  • 89

Coffee Break schedule adjustments and the results of a staff meeting. Raspberry Pi vs. ODROID for Zoom camera shots, and Robert's new crypto feature. Solbu turns 47 on Wednesday, and Robbie lays down the law about personal questions. bp9 has something en-route. Could it be a Pinebook Pro? Or a PinePhone? Thinking of Pinebook Pro gets us talking about ANSI vs. ISO, and Robbie thinks he's figured out what ANSI stands for: American, not stupid ISO. bp9 struggles to get a good connection between the PineTime and Raspberry Pi, and shows us how tiny the solder joints are. Robbie Ferguson is joined by bp9, Solbu, MarshMan and Peter Lewis.
