In this episode, Josh and I talk about the flurry of US national news around bitcoin, much thanks to Libra… but it really brings crypto onto the main stage.

In this episode, Josh and I talk about the flurry of news from the US, related in large part to the fire sparked by Facebook’s Libra, but brought Bitcoin to the forefront with it. We had tweets from Donald Trump, comments from Jerome Powell, a press conference from Steve Mnuchin, and more.

There are a lot of Bitcoin price levels right now and I don’t see much clarity until we pass ~$11.5k
Trump tweeted about bitcoin:
I am not a fan of Bitcoin and other Cryptocurrencies, which are not money, and whose value is highly volatile and based on thin air. Unregulated Crypto Assets can facilitate unlawful behavior, including drug trade and other illegal activity….
