Will we ever have Proof of Satoshi?

An extremely interesting transaction connected to one of the earliest Bitcoin wallets has got the crypto community scratching their heads. Was it Satoshi Nakamoto?

A mystery account has rescued $6 million in STEEM from Justin Sun’s rogue hard fork.

And Joe Rogan isn’t the only person leaving YouTube. A crypto YouTube is seeking to escape totalitarian tyranny by moving to Saipan.

We’ve also got news regarding the end of the Telegram battle with the SEC, along with a little help from our friend Josh Lawler.

We have gone so far down the NFT rabbit hole that we are spinning off a new LIVE show focused on the digital collectible space.

More about that. And a little about this. And perhaps a bit about that other thing. Oh, and Happy Bitcoin Pizza Day! Grab a slice and settle in for our Bad News episode #409 of The Bad Crypto Podcast.
