Bitcoin: ETF and ICO

LISTEN

Bitcoin is soaring. After 18 months of steady growth, it’s value is $1275, and only looks to be growing. As today’s guest, Brock Pierce, puts it- it is GOLD 2.0.

But in 9 days, the SEC will decide whether to approve the Winklevoss twins filing of a Bitcoin ETF (Exchange Traded Fund). Whether it is approved, and others like it can follow, could slow the growth, or send it catapulting. Today, Brock Pierce and Spencer Bogart of Blockchain Capital join to discuss all the elements of the ETF and their new Initial Coin Offering (ICO) which could democratize venture capital in surprising ways.

Also, we have Steve Cocheo from Banking Exchange on to talk about the proposed national Fintech charter, what that could mean for banking, and why there is opposition from state governments in the US.
