On episode 124, titled “Learn Mining with Card Game,” the hosts of the “Wild West Crypto Show” continued their straight shooting. Drew Taylor and Brent Bates welcomed their first guest, Scott Siblet, who together with his wife has created a novel educational crypto card game. Called SHAmory, the Bitcoin card game was developed to teach those new to crypto about the mining process.
There’s no doubt that crypto mining involves abstruse concepts. Siblet hopes that SHAmory will make those ideas more comprehensible. The SHAmory website proclaims the product is the first and only STEM-certified Bitcoin card game.
In addition to Siblet, Taylor and Bates welcome 17-year-old crypto crusader Koosha Azim to the show, which is broadcast from studios in Kerrville, Texas. The show is designed to entertain, educat, and keep the crypto community on top of the latest trends and happenings in the space. Azim did exactly that as he talked about his work promoting blockchain.
As usual, Jonathan Keim, director of communications at CryptoCurrencyWire, joined the show and brought everyone up to speed with developments in the crypto space. The big headline for the day: Fidelity President Files for New Bitcoin Fund (http://ccw.fm/2Res2).
If anyone had doubts that cryptocurrencies are now totally mainstream, they can lay that uncertainty to rest. America’s largest 401(k) provider, Fidelity, plans to start a new fund entirely devoted to Bitcoin. Called the Wise Origin Bitcoin Index Fund I, the fund may boost the investing behemoth’s assets under management (“AUM”), which presently stand at $8.3 trillion.
Fidelity has been an early supporter of crypto assets. The company began mining Bitcoin (“BTC”) and ether (“ETH”) in 2014 to develop knowledge of the technology, a venture that turned out to be quite profitable (http://ccw.fm/XVuYr).
Second on Keim’s list was this headline: Semtech and Helium Expand LoRaWAN Network Deployments (http://ccw.fm/uFy5P). The collaboration between Semtech and Helium has taken a step forward.
Semtech is the developer of the LoRaWAN (Long Range Wide Area Network) protocol, designed to wirelessly connect battery-operated “things” to the internet. Helium is creator of the LongFi technology, said to have a range 200 times that of Wi-Fi. The company has also developed the People’s Network, the world’s first peer-to-peer wireless network for low-power Internet of Things (“IoT”) devices to connect to the internet. With this partnership, IoT applications have now become a great deal more feasible.
Finally, a news headline that shows managers of the U.S. Postal Service are no Luddites: US Rep. Darren Soto Is Excited about the Recent USPS Blockchain Voting Patent (http://ccw.fm/hqAaP). USPS has filed a patent for mail-in voting that draws on blockchain cryptographic security safeguards. The initiative comes at a time when new allegations that mail-in voting is vulnerable to fraud have surfaced.
However, senior law-enforcement figures have expressed the view that it would be “extraordinarily difficult” for fraudulent mail-in voting to take place on a scale that would affect election results, “given the range of processes that would need to be affected or compromised by an adversary.” (http://ccw.fm/lUQc1). With Russia’s election meddling an ongoing threat, this is a decidedly reassuring pronouncement.
