February 21, 2019 11:57:20

Drew Taylor and Brent Bates, hosts of the Wild West Crypto Show, continued their straight shooting on Episode #48 of the show ( It was another week at the speed of crypto, with new developments in the crypto space coming at a fast and furious pace. Blockchain rock star Eric Piscini, who built Deloitte’s global blockchain practice into a $50 million business, called in from Chicago. Eric now heads early-stage startup Citizens Reserve, which is currently raising $150 million to develop a blockchain-based technology that aims to make supply chains more efficient, transparent and secure. The company will offer a “supply-chain-as-a-service” platform to enterprises.

CryptoCurrencyWire made its regular appearance to share some of the latest news from the broader market. Neptune Dash, which builds and operates master nodes to “mine” cryptocurrency, was covered for its latest financial report. The crypto news-oriented brand also gave an update on the recently launched Freedom Coin, which will make many gun owners happy. Online gun shop is making the Freedom Coin its preferred method of payment. GunBroker is the eBay of the firearms market. The company operates an auction website that matches gun buyers and sellers.

Word on the street was all about the HODL Rally put on by EVOLV Events, in which 100 supercars, starting from London, will cruise through Paris, Geneva, Monaco, Barcelona, Valencia and Denia, ending on the island of Ibiza in the Mediterranean. The multi-country rally, which begins on June 29, is part of a grand promotion and networking gala that’s set to last for eight days. The main event will be the EVOLV Barcelona Blockchain Summit at the W Hotel on days five and six, which will feature presentations on developments in crypto and blockchain. EVOLV will also be hosting the upcoming World Crypto Conference, scheduled for October 29-31 in Las Vegas.

Drew and Brent discussed the curious case of Quadriga CX, whose CEO, Gerald Cotten, died on December 9 in India at the age of 30 from complications of Crohn’s disease. Unfortunately, access to Quadriga CX’s digital ‘wallets’, or applications that store the keys to send and receive cryptocurrencies, have been lost, since Cotton appears to have been the only one who was privy to them. Time to call in Sherlock Holmes?
