Paul Sports Freaks Out over ICO's - Where did we go wrong!?
Paul Sports popped into the Coin Dojo today and was shaken by the Wayne Vaughn/Tierion ICO announcement. Discussion quickly turned to "who's the scammer?"

I took paul into my new studio to work through the issues, and what came out - what a pretty decent collaboration on the narrative of Bitcoin, and the maximalists in 2017. See what you think? This is a template for more regular episodes that I'd like to do with less editing than my recent stuff I'm thinking about calling it "Unprotected sex with (Guest Name Here)".
