The Wild West Crypto Show Urges Investors to Show ‘True Grit’ as Prognosticator Issues Astronomical Prediction for Bitcoin

September 5, 2019 11:53:35

Drew Taylor and Brent Bates, hosts of the Wild West Crypto Show, went to the moon and back on their latest episode, titled ‘BTC Takes True Grit’. Known as enthusiastic believers in the value of cryptocurrency and its ability to change the way the world does business, Taylor and Bates are generous hosts, offering the spotlight to some of the best and brightest stars in the crypto space.

Kicking off the entertaining podcast was the duo’s first guest, Geoffrey McCabe of the Divi Project, who explained that most people may find purchasing crypto easy but spending or keeping it difficult. The Divi Project solves many of the existing problems, such as protecting private keys, worrying about hackers and trying to figure out the technology, by providing a ‘one-click universe’ in a simple masternode that requires little-to-no technical know-how.

Jonathan Keim, communications director of CryptoCurrencyWire and a regular guest on the Wild West Crypto Show, brought some of the latest crypto headlines to his fast-paced give-and-take with Taylor and Bates. For those who have always had an eye on owning a slice of the moon, there’s a company called Blockchain Lunar Registry taking aim at tokenizing our closest stellar neighbor.

While no one seems to yet know how much a 2.5-acre unit on the moon will cost, plans are underway to section it off and make it tradeable on the blockchain. People will soon be able to purchase a lunar unit from the company and give their new real estate an address, Keim said, adding, “I don’t know who is going to be making deliveries, but it’s out there. They’re going to be launching soon, so keep an eye out.”

Staying current on the latest technology being developed in the blockchain space is a significant quest for those truly invested in the sector. MouseBelt aims to service prominent universities like Harvard, Oxford and Cambridge by investing in blockchain projects and providing an intensive business building program. While the programs are needed and there is no lack of blockchain startups, Keim was curious as to how MouseBelt would keep up with the blistering pace of technology, since many tech-based courses quickly become irrelevant as innovation advances.

Taylor and Bates segued quickly to the upcoming Coinvention event, to be held in downtown Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, September 20-21, and featuring CryptoCurrencyWire as its official newswire. Coinvention founder Alex Scagz brought his famous brand of energy to the Wild West Crypto Show with a sprint through the Coinvention agenda and a look at the lineup of crypto and blockchain enthusiasts who have already signed up. It’s billed as a ‘must-attend’ event for anyone interested in learning how to get involved in crypto.

Finishing up the show with ‘The Good, the Bad and the Ugly’, Taylor and Bates shared a ‘Good’ headline that Digital Asset Research is talking about bitcoin being poised to shatter 700,000 at some point, adding that it could even reach 60,000 by 2020. Both men seemed a little skeptical, but reminded viewers that bitcoin is a scarce and limited commodity, which means that anything can happen. They suggest investing a little, holding on and seeing what happens, since there’s always a ‘Bad’ side to the ‘Good’.

The ‘Ugly’ headline came in from Australia, where some residents are petitioning their government to stop using cash and embrace technology instead. A proposed law limiting the use of cash to $10,000 or less is seen by opponents as Orwellian, since it would give government greater control over peoples’ finances. Taylor reminded viewers that “part of the reason why governments aren’t really favoring crypto is because they can’t control it.”
