14 Jan Episode 51: CoinMarketCap Strikes Back! CMC Shill Army Revealed
Over the last decade, blockchain technology and crypto has been steadily increasing in popularity. Nevertheless, there are still people around the world who aren’t unaware of crypto and the benefits of decentralized blockchains. Without any connection to an entity or government, decentralized networks ensure that your funds remain safe and your system is never shut down by outside interference.
In today’s episode, we discuss how CoinMarketCap attacked Bitboy for a video he made about the company back in 2009. We share a list of alternative platforms you could use instead of CoinMarketCap and discuss Twitter CEO, Jack Dorsey’s account being hacked and the reasons that led to it. We share how you could prevent something similar from happening to you. We explain why decentralized apps are important to keep your funds secure in the future. We also share our love for football and the recent controversy over Antonio Brown’s request for social media consultants to help him get released from the Raiders.
‘People really don’t understand centralization and decentralization because it doesn’t seem like a thing you need to worry about until it happens to you.’ - Bitboy
