Drew Taylor and Brent Bates, hosts of the Wild West Crypto Show, continued their straight shooting on episode 71, titled ‘A Blockchain Game’, broadcasted from Kerrville, Texas (http://ccw.fm/9Sveu). The show featured another week at the speed of crypto, with new developments in the crypto-sphere coming fast and furious, including news about a new game built on blockchain technology.
Game developer Matt Rosen appeared on the show, speaking enthusiastically about his creation, Splinterlands. The game reminded Taylor and Bates of their baseball card-collecting days. Justyn Osowska, founder of the Canadian chapter of Women in Blockchain, was also a featured guest on the show, and there was talk of another bitcoin milestone. The cryptocurrency’s share of the $350 billion crypto market has now regained the high point it reached in 2017, when it accounted for 60 percent of market share. Taylor and Bates agree; it looks like bitcoin is here to stay.
As usual, Jonathan Keim, director of communications at CryptoCurrencyWire, shared headlines from the crypto world. In his update segment on the show, Keim gave viewers a heads-up on the second annual Voice of Blockchain, the largest blockchain and crypto event in the Midwest. Set to run from September 30 to October 1, 2019, at Venue SIX10, a unique event space on Chicago’s Michigan Avenue, Voice of Blockchain is designed to foster collaboration and cooperation in the blockchain ecosystem.
Chicago is an ideal location to host a conference showcasing a disruptive technology like blockchain. The city is the birthplace of modern portfolio theory, which upended the investment industry by incorporating a consideration of risk into investing decisions. With TD Ameritrade as a sponsor, Voice of Blockchain promises to be quite a grand affair. A recent press release announced that the “largest blockchain and crypto event in the Midwest reserves four floors of this modern Chicago venue.”
Keim also made mention of Solana, which recently announced that it had raised $20 million in a Series A round led by Multicoin Capital, with participation from Distributed Global, Blocktower Capital, Foundation Capital, Blockchange VC, Slow Ventures, NEO Global Capital, Passport Capital and Rockaway Ventures. Solana is preparing to launch the first-ever ‘web-scale blockchain’, or a blockchain solution capable of hosting applications with computational bandwidth akin to the modern internet. Solana developers claim that their offering is the only blockchain in existence with the capability to power decentralized versions of Nasdaq, Facebook, Twitter and all other existing blockchains – with room to spare.
