If keeping up with the latest developments in the crypto space is becoming bewildering, then tune in to the Wild West Crypto Show, which is hosted by Drew Taylor and Brent Bates from their global hideout in Kerrville, Texas. The dynamic duo, known for their straight shooting, will bring you up to speed on what’s happening in the crypto and blockchain worlds. On Episode 57 of the show, they welcomed Jonathan Keim from CryptoCurrencyWire, who spoke on breaking news of a triad of triumphs in the blockchain space. BitFrontier’s foray into crypto mining is right on track; Cardano has launched a blockchain “browser”; and DISH Network has signed on to a public blockchain mainnet.

Episode 57 (, among other topics, discusses what makes DISH Network’s decision to join a public blockchain network, or mainnet, a big deal ( DISH is a Fortune 250 provider of satellite streaming TV content, with annual revenues that top $13 billion. The media giant will be participating in the public blockchain network, developed by tech startup GoChain, as a “signing node.” GoChain’s Proof of Reputation (“PoR”) consensus algorithm will rely on “reputable” validators like DISH to sign blocks, rather than the traditional Proof of Work (“PoW”). DISH has already gotten its feet wet in the crypto space. The company began accepting bitcoin for payment in 2014 and started accepting bitcoin cash in 2018.

Meanwhile, BitFrontier’s plans to enter the cryptocurrency mining space got a boost after the company announced that it had received permits to begin construction of its first facility ( The crypto company is expected to begin “laying down the foundation any day now.”

EMURGO, the investment arm of Cardano, announced the launch of Seiza, its blockchain explorer, at the recently concluded IOHK Summit in Miami ( Seiza, to be released by the end of May, will aim to enable ADA holders to immediately track any of their transactions on the Cardano blockchain, which has already validated more than 2.4 million blocks. ADA is the Cardano cryptocurrency. The name ‘Seiza’ is derived from the Japanese word for ‘constellation’ and reflects EMURGO’s Japanese heritage and its desire to be an all-encompassing blockchain navigation guide for users.
