Ep191: Project Alchemy Bridges Ethereum and Zcash, Israel Eyes Bitcoin Taxes, President Trump

Trump takes office and signs executive orders like they’re autographs. We discuss a letter from a listener. Bloomberg has a revealing article detailing how Deutsche Bank helped the world’s oldest bank Banca Monte dei Paschi di Siena hide a 367 million euro gambling loss in 2008. Pedro talks about Project Alchemy, an effort to create a bridge between Zcash and Ethereum blockchains. We also talk about a bill in the Washington state Senate proposing to bar legal marijuana companies from using bitcoin and about how they are already denied bank access thanks to Federal policy. A draft of changes to Israeli tax code sees bitcoin users suffering a 25% capital gains tax and a 17% VAT. Some WhatsApp users are not taking the time to carefully configure security features. Abra bitcoin wallet app focuses on inter-currency exchange through local human ATMs called Tellers… Local Bitcoins just went International. Bots are good for trading but the real news is that Bloomberg bitcoin news coverage has matured. Ziftrcoin is no more.
