Digital Cash Rundown 21 with Chris Pacia: Tether Backing, Ripple Going Public and More!

Chris Pacia joins the podcast to talk all things crypto as per usual, including of course Bitcoin's persistent price pumping, which prompts an in-depth discussion as to the value of the network in the modern age, and how much speculation may or may not play into it. We also go into the recent-ish network issues caused by hashrate fluctuations from China, and any effects they may have rippling down across layer-two solutions like Lightning. We also touch on the SEC case against Ripple, as well as Tether and its purported backing, including the distinction between liquid and backed, along with some fun conspiracy theories. Finally we touch on the current state of OpenBazaar, its value in the modern world, and what its future could hold.
