    On tonight’s episode of “The Crypto Show,” lawyer Jeffrey D. Welsh, partner at Frontera Law Group ( discusses with us the legal and regulatory environment for cannabis in California and other cannabis-legal states as well as the reasons why most cannabis businesses are forced to use cash and unable to use banks (and how California is largely an exception). We talk about the corporatization of the industry, why the Feds sometimes raid grow operations in legal states, and outlines some strategies that other states have used to get legalization passed that activists in Texas could use.

    In the second hour, or guest is Heather Fazio of the Marijuana Policy Project. She recaps some of the hard work and successes already achieved by groups like hers at the Texas legislature prior to the most recent session, as well as some of the achievements from this most recent session. She then talks about the important strategy shift of promoting and increasing activism when the legislature is not in session, the sort of “off-season” tactics in the struggle for our cannabis rights.

    On tonight’s episode of “The Crypto Show,” Jonathan Mohan and The Dollar Vigilante’s Jeff Berwick join us to discuss the recent Bitcoin Cash hard fork and its ramifications. We discuss the moral validity of the decision by some of the exchanges NOT to disburse Bitcoin Cash to their customers; Jonathan explores the possiblity of Bitcoin “endlessly” forking through every contentious soft fork becoming a hard fork; Jeff expresses his concerns about Segwit2x but also his admiration for the free market and how it has made current circumstances probably better than could have been expected; we compare the Ethereum fork to this recent fork; and we also speculate on the long-term outcome for Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, and the the other cryptos. We get Jeff to give us a quick update on the upcoming Anarchapulco conference, and Danny gives us a brief update on the Texas Bitcoin Conference in October. Both Jonathan and Jeff, as to be expected, give some very cogent answers to some difficult questions and also offer some brilliant and profound insights into the crypto space above and beyond.

    On tonight’s episode of “The Crypto Show,” we talk with Eric J. Anderson, a.k.a., “Eijah,” about his ongoing “Demonsaw” project that he has made open-source and is retiring. We talk about his latest project Titan, and the launch party he is cohosting during Defcon on July 27th. (Additional Eijah audio from that launch party will be attached to the show, so listen all the way to the end.) We also talk about his desire to take on encrypted-messaging app “Signal”, which he says isn’t nearly as secure or private as it should or could be, and he wants to create a truly secure alternative.

    Trace Mayer joins the discussion as we talk about ICO’s (Initial Coin Offerings) and the Ethereum hack, and Trace makes some very insightful points about the events surrounding that hack and whether certain facts indicate incompetence or malfeasance on the part of those behind the Pulse wallets that got compromised. We also briefly discuss the implementation of BIP91 and Segwit2X, and whether a Bitcoin hard or soft work is still a possibility. Danny, Eijah, and Trace are all in Las Vegas getting ready for DefCon.

He always gives us a breakdown of the recent Ethereum hack to the tune of $32 million, of which SwarmCity was one of the victims.
