Episode 175
December 31, 2017 — 85 mins
Guests: Richard Jacobs

Richard Jacobs is no stranger to the show. However, we take a moment to really examine what it takes to put on a crypto conference. I mean, think about it — conferences continue to be the premier international forum for research, advanced development, education, exploration, and debate regarding security in the context of finance and commerce. So how do you put one on? And let us take it a step further…in regards to our guest Richard, because that is what this conference is about, over the last nine months he has put together a SOLID “black book” of most of the pre-eminent players in the cryptocurrency and blockchain space. Quite impressive. We also discuss crypto tax and what it costs to be poor & unbanked. Meaningfully. That’s right, let’s look at a reloadable debit card fee structure and imagine that coming out of a $250 a week paycheck. Yikes. Last episode of 2017 ya’ll. Let’s do this.
