This Week On The TechCrunch Bitcoin Podcast: Million-Dollar Electric Bill

Next Story

The Web-Tracking Tipping Point

Hello friends, and welcome back to another episode of TCBTC, TechCrunch’s most esteemed bitcoin podcast.

This week we dug into Disrupt’s coming bitcoin panel, which our own John Biggs will moderate, host, and generally kick over. Also on the program today is Erik Voorhees, a noted bitcoin expert and entrepreneur.

Voorhees’ new project, ShapeShift.io, recently raised $1.6 million.

ShapeShift’s big push is to help people exchange their digital currencies for other cryptocurrencies. So, you can move from Dogecoin to bitcoin to Litecoin in rapid fashion. And, as it turns out, Clams. Those are a thing, and not in the sense that you can eat them.

Will it work? Why did he build it? Hit play and let’s do this.

TCBTC is posted nearly every Thursday, precisely when we get around to it. Hear you all next week.
