Fintech Podcast – Episode 149 – ICO Mania – Equifax Hack & Apple

Episode 149

The duo is back: This week Faisal Khan & Brian Roemmele are back together on the air after a brief break. We discuss the gold-rush behind ICOs and the move by China to ban ICOs (or Token Sales) and what impact will that have on the ICO industry. Will it get worse before it gets better or will we see a strong regulation clamp down? In other news the recent breach at Equifax, of the three leading credit scoring agency, where possibly millions of records on Americans consumers have been compromised. What does this mean? What effect can it have on the economy and the whole credit rating system itself? Will the playbook be rewritten? Lastly, we discuss what will happen on 12th September when Apple possibly releases the new iPhone, being dubbed as iPhone X by Brian Roemmele.

Fintech Podcast – Episode 144 – During The Next Financial Crisis – Will Bitcoin Be Noah’s Ark?

Episode 144

Brian Roemmele & Faisal Khan are back on the air this week. With the meteoric rise in the price of bitcoin and the added fear of an economic correction that is due, we discuss the power of Bitcoin and how it can be an avenue where wealth could get parked in the next financial crisis. Whether it will happen or not, remains to be seen. Brian does dwell on the dystopian society that we might be heading towards, and when the alarm bells ring, will we find solace in the driftwood (or ark) known as Bitcoin, for a common person like you and me. Consider this, that during the financial crisis of 2008, Bitcoin was not there. How it will play out this time around, poses an interesting dilemma for both governments and the financial industry in general.

Fintech Podcast: Episode 141 – Bitcoin Classic vs. Bitcoin Cash – The Fork Ahead.

Episode 141

The duo is back on the air after a short break. This week Brian Roemmele and Faisal Khan discuss the impending hard fork for Bitcoin. The Bitcoin Classic versus Bitcoin Cash. Not many people truly understand why it is happening and what it means for the average consumer/user of bitcoins like you and me. Brian very eloquently explains the whole scenario about the fork and some of the players who are deliberately not cooperating with respect to consumer rights and BCC. Don’t support it, that is okay, but don’t tell your users, you will not give them their due BCC (Bitcoin Cash) coins post hard fork on 1st of August 2017.
