On this episode of the unhashed podcast: Bitcoin rewards platform Lolli was embroiled in a bit of a stink earlier this week. On the advice of their council, they trademarked the phrase “Stacking Sats” in what they called a defensive stance against bad actors using the phrase, which makes me wonder: should I trademark all of the co-hosts nicknames before they are used against us?

Paul spork is on the show today and he’s here to talk peer-to-peer oracles and prediction markets, but can you predict what his opinion will be on whether or not dogecoin is a sidechain of litecoin?
