THIS EPISODE IS SPONSORED BY: Upland Upland is a location-based property trading game paired with a decentralized economy. Players buy, sell, trade and develop virtual properties that are based on real-world addresses. Blockchain technology ensures true ownership for the players. Uplanders collect in-game currency called UPX as a reward for their ownership and for completing missions in the game (collections, treasure hunts,...). UPX can be used to purchase more properties, to develop land and to pay for digital goods and services other Uplanders will create and provide. The objective is to establish an open economy where various stakeholders interact/transact with each other directly, i.e. without intermediaries. Check them out: Upland.me

Feature: Riccardo Spagni

Riccardo is a member of the Monero Core Team, the stewards of the Monero Project, and is also the lead maintainer of the Monero and Monero Core projects. Over the past year, 177 developers contributed new code to Monero, making it one of the largest open-source teams in the world, and a top 2 percent project on Open Hub.

Monero employs 5 state-of-the-art technology such as stealth addresses to provide unlinkability, ring signatures to provide untraceability, ring confidential transactions to provide transaction privacy, and soon Kovri6 to provide network layer anonymity.

With an academic background in informatics and logistics, Riccardo spent many years in software development, before starting a business in the import/export industry. Due to the success of that business, he had enough freedom to start tinkering with Bitcoin early in 2011. In early 2012 he took on the lead maintainer role for Monero.

The Most Secure Crypto Wallet Ever

The Most Secure Crypto Wallet Ever

Over the past couple years we’ve seen a number of crypto wallets designed to offer security to coin holders. We’ve been big fans of the Trezor and Ledger wallets, but some new technologies are creating opportunities for digital wallets to become even safer. Evercoin now claims to be the safest cryptocurrency wallet and exchange. Evercoin co-founders Miko Matsumura and Talip Ozturk join us today to discuss their latest update and how their integration with the Yubikey make their wallet the safest one available.

What do you get when you combine a spicy password, a dash of biometrics, a sprinkle of 2FA, a dollop of hardware security and a jar of nutella? We’re not really sure, but at least part of it sounds tasty.
