In this episode, Dave and Grahm cover the latest Bitcoin Magazine stories: shadow banking in the crypto space, Binance’s U.S.-regulation-compliant spinoff company and ways to explain Bitcoin to your dad. Then they welcome back recurring guest Dan Held, director of business development at Interchange. They discuss Held’s recent essay on Bitcoin’s security, the halving and Bitcoin’s best use case (whether that’s as a store of value or by enabling more efficient payments).
