Welcome back to TCBTC, TechCrunch’s weekly podcast on the cryptocurrency bitcoin. Bitcoin managed to pull out of a price tailspin this week, edging back north of the key $200 price point. Also, Coinbase, a popular bitcoin startup, raised a massive $75 million round of funding.
The new funds brings Coinbase’s total capital raised to more than $106 million. Coinbase is, obviously, the best-funded young company working on bitcoin.
Also this week, Jameson Lopp came on the show to tell John Biggs and myself precisely what we got wrong last episode. Hint: Two things, and we’re both very sorry. Get another cup of coffee, tune in, and then send us your feedback.
