This week, on episode 115, the Wild West Crypto Show featured a segment by radio broadcaster Paul Harvey (1918–2009) spotlighting a bit of history. The show, broadcast from Kerrville, Texas, is designed to entertain and inform and keep viewers abreast of the latest developments in crypto from around the world. But hosts Drew Taylor and Brent Bates will often share content on cultural, philosophical and historical issues. Nevertheless, while markets — gold, cryptos and stocks — across the board are flat or down, enthusiasm on the show was, as usual, up.
In addition to the look back at the Harvey piece, the show included an appearance by Jonathan Keim, communications director of CryptoCurrencyWire, who tuned in with his usual trio of developing stories. First was the headline: KuCoin P2P Fiat Market Supports Buying Crypto with USD Via PayPal (http://ccw.fm/xlKX0).
Starting in June, KuCoin will allow its customers to buy cryptocurrencies, including Bitcoin, Ether and Tether, using U.S. dollars from their PayPal accounts. This development adds another fiat currency that KuCoin will accept as payment for transactions on its platform. The KuCoin P2P Fiat Market already supports payments made in the Canadian dollar (“CAD”), Chinese yuan (“CNY”), Indonesian rupiah (“IDR”) and Vietnamese dong (“VND”). Founded in 2017, KuCoin is a crypto exchange with one out of four crypto holders worldwide and an estimated 5 million users across 207 countries.
Next on Keim’s list was the LATOKEN VCTV Weekly Announcement (June 8–12) (http://ccw.fm/B9cN0). LATOKEN VCTV is a broadcast platform focused on the venture capital (“VC”) industry. The broadcast regularly features discussion panels, road shows, pitch competitions, keynote addresses and a variety of other VC-related content, and is widely watched by the VC community.
LATOKEN VCTV’s Weekly Announcement gives a heads-up on the agenda for the forthcoming week. The week June 8–12 began with an address by Giampaolo Parigi, chairman of a single family office discussing how to raise capital in the new normal. Other segments included a talk on how to get tech-style growth from old-economy businesses by Callum Laing, founder and CEO of MBH Corporation, and an online road show with the theme: Investments and Pivots during Pandemic: AI, Machine Learning and Data.
Keim’s final report was the news that BitPay has been selected as Frost & Sullivan’s Company of the Year in the Alternative Payments space (http://ccw.fm/Z8yV5). BitPay is the world’s largest provider of Bitcoin and cryptocurrency payment services. The company was founded in 2011 and is notable for a number of achievements. In 2016, it launched the BitPay Visa Prepaid Debit Card, the first prepaid Visa debit card for Bitcoin. And in 2018, it received a virtual currency license from the New York Department of Financial Services.
