Bitcoin may go up, bitcoin may go down, but the Wild West Crypto Show goes on. Broadcast from Kerrville, Texas, the weekly show featuring all things crypto, is designed to entertain and educate while keeping viewers abreast of the latest developments in the space. On episode 75, ‘Prices Still Holding Steady’, hosts Drew Taylor and Brent Bates noted that bitcoin appears to be holding steady. The digital currency is staying above the $10,000 mark, after peaking at $12,575.90 in early July. So, what should holders of the cryptocurrency do? Just HODL, suggests the dynamic duo.
David Schwartz, project director of the Litecoin Foundation, discussed the challenge of overcoming tribalism in the industry. The Litecoin Foundation, based in Singapore, is a nonprofit organization with a mission of advancing and promoting blockchain technology, primarily through its Litecoin cryptocurrency. The foundation will be represented at the upcoming Coinvention 2019, which takes place September 20-21, 2019, at the luxurious Loews Hotel in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The two-day event will feature study sessions and workshops, addresses by domain experts and an abundance of networking opportunities (http://nnw.fm/ex1aW). Bitcoin Ben will be there, as will Taylor and Bates.
Jonathan Keim, communications director of CryptoCurrencyWire, provided his weekly update. The first newsbreak on his list was ‘Miller Lite Teams with Blockchain Firm for Customer Engagement Game’. Miller Lite, the popular beer brand from U.S. brewer MillerCoors, has engaged blockchain marketing company Vatom Labs to build a mobile ‘edutainment’ game as part of its ‘Know Your Beer’ promotional campaign. Called ‘Great Taste Trivia’, the game will pose 12 questions to the patrons of more than 230,000 bars and restaurants across the United States via mobile phone. Players answering all 12 questions correctly will win a $5 prize that can be used to purchase Miller Lite. Ten thousand prizes are planned for payout through PayPal during the campaign, which runs from July through September (http://nnw.fm/w4TpA).
