Is Facebook's new cryptocurrency, Libra, a force for good or evil? Are the companies involved within the Libra association incentivized to be bad or good actors? And is the launch of Calibra, the mobile payments wallet run by Facebook, a thinly veiled excuse for Facebook to simply get mesh together more of the world's financial data? We discuss all of the above and more in this detailed first look at Libra.

Full show notes:
Coinbase has opened the floodgates for all kinds of cryptocurrencies to be listed on their platform, Tim Berners-Lee is here to save us all (again), and we take a look at the current state of ASIC mining.

I've been interested in Crypto for some time, but has no clue where to start. This podcast helped me immensely in terms of figuring out tangible ways I can learn and do more. In the end it's a constant learning process, but for knowledge and a place to start you guys are great.
