The Future of Litecoin with John Kim & David Schwartz

The Future of Litecoin with John Kim & David Schwartz

It’s been said that Litecoin is Bitcoin’s baby brother. And it’s not unusual for the price of Litecoin to track with the price of Bitcoin. Today’s show is all about the little coin that could… or might, as we welcome John Kim, Chief Litecoin Evangelist and David Schwartz, Project Director for the Litecoin Foundation to the mic.

We’ll talk about adding privacy functionality to Litecoin, what the foundation is up to and what the future might look like.

If you are holding any Litecoin, you’ve got more then the founder, Charlie Lee. He may have sold his entire stash at a very opportune time. What happens when Bitcoin goes on a diet? It becomes Litecoin. Join us for a very lite episode #356 of The Bad Crypto Podcast.

Day trading can be highly rewarding yet extremely risky, over time this can become a mental and physical drain on humans causing poor decision making and missed entry and exits. The emotional and patience factor can further lead to mistakes and a risk of losing capital. OpenBlock solves this dilemma by trading with artificial intelligence through automated trading rules that govern responsible low risk trading. OBi has the ability to give OpenBlock token holders profits on trades occurring 24 hours a day on dozens of trading pairs. It’s something remarkable a human is incapable of accomplishing on a consistent basis making OBi the clear winner on every metric level.

What is Crypto, What Are Joel and Travis Doing — And Why Are They Doing It?

What is Crypto, What Are Joel and Travis Doing — And Why Are They Doing It?

Bad Crypto Podcast Episode 001   

This is the very first episode of the Bad Crypto Podcast, the place where it all began. And if the guys knew where it would all lead and how the crypto markets and blockchain would develop over the following year, they’d probably go back and do it all over again… but they’d buy a lot more cryptocurrency.

Joel gets the ball rolling by explaining who the show is for. It was never meant to be for coders and developers or for financial wizards or technology geeks. It’s “the show for people like myself and Travis,” he says, “who are trying to figure out this world of cryptocurrency, blockchain, Bitcoin, the future of digital payments.”

Charlie Lee of Litecoin Fame | Bad Crypto Podcast ep. 56

Charlie Lee of Litecoin Fame | Bad Crypto Podcast ep. 56

Of the three cryptocurrencies on Coinbase, Litecoin seems like the baby brother that doesn’t get attention. Both Travis and I have been fans of litecoin since we first discovered it for a number of reasons.

And in this episode we invite Charlie Lee, the inventor of Litecoin to the show to discuss his vision for the little coin that could. We’re revisited by Fiat Currency and we discovered a nifty little app that invests your leftover change in crypto while you sleep.

But now isn’t the time for sleeping. Sit up straight. Eyes front. And ears open wide so we can fill them with crypto goodness. It’s time for episode #56 of The Bad Crypto Podcast.
