Exclusively on the new feed, starting on the next interview with the great Max Kaiser. Search for “Fed Watch - Bitcoin and Macro” on your podcast app. In this episode of Bitcoin Magazine’s “Fed Watch,” Christian Keroles and Ansel Lindner ​discuss the broad macroeconomic atmosphere in which bitcoin finds itself. We touch on bitcoin mining, price, the dollar, commodities, and the economy in general. In our bitcoin mining commentary, we focus on the behavior of hash rate over the last few months and the unique market for mining rigs. This is an important aspect of the bitcoin market that largely not understood even by hardcore bitcoiners. Next, we have a fascinating discussion about social media, community building, and gaming. The Bitcoin & Markets podcast community has built a valuable community on discord and have slowly moved away from Twitter. Smaller communities where you can build relationships instead of followings may be the future trend. We wrap up the episode talking about macro trends and bitcoin price. That, and so much more is on this episode. Don’t miss it. This was another great episode to keep you current on central bank issues. Full show notes available: (link back to bitcoin magazine).

The Identity Dilemma - Selfkey is empowering individuals to take back ownership of their identity data
Edmund Lowell is the CEO of KYC-chain and the Selfkey network - a blockchain startup developing digital identity solutions that empower individuals to take back ownership of their identity data. Guest: Edmund Lowell Why you should listen: Everyone’s data is concentrated in the hands of a few large institutions. They store information about your browsing history, shopping habits, location data, bank statements, medical history, and more. With the growing threat of data breaches, and the loss of privacy - our information is increasingly at risk. One of the reasons for this is because rather than the individual controlling their data, it is instead tech companies and government databases that store data. This is at risk of being hacked and leaked. For example, last year hardware wallet manufacturer Ledger was data hacked. The data consisted of a list of one million email addresses, as well as a list of 272,000 individual customers, containing emails, phone numbers, and physical addresses. Those customers have since been targeted with phishing attempts by scammers sending fraudulent emails claiming that their "cryptocurrency assets are at risk", prompting them to download a fake version of Ledger Live that would then ask for the user's seed phrase. Key takeaway: Current identity systems have failed to deliver the most basic requirements for a successful identity system: security, privacy, ownership, access, protection, interoperability, or linked data portability to identity owners. SelfKey’s mission is to empower individuals to own, control, and manage their personal data; and to help businesses protect personal data entrusted to them by users, and stay compliant with privacy regulators. SelfKey envisions a safer world where individuals are freer because their personal data and privacy is protected and under their control.

A deep dive into Coinbase's acquisition of Bison Trails
Count this as one of the first major acquisitions deals of 2021: Coinbase said on Wednesday that it is set to acquire crypto infrastructure services provider Bison Trails for an undisclosed sum.  On this episode of The Scoop, Coinbase chief product officer Surojit Chatterjee and Bison Trails CEO Joe Lallouz unpack the deal with The Block's Frank Chaparro and Ryan Todd.  "Bison trails is going to serve as a foundational product within our product portfolio: what we call our ecosystem products," Chatterjee, a former executive at Google, said.  "So staking infra services is a start point, but we are going to look at other potential services that we can externalize, that we can create as a service." The deal represents a bigger push by Coinbase to offer its internal solutions to new client segments, Chatterjee said. "Over time you will see we will extend additional infrastructure and API services, many of which have actually been developed to power our internal Coinbase product," he added. "We want to externalize them make them services for the entire crypto ecosystem." In this episode of The Scoop, we explore various aspects of the deal, including: What it could mean for Coinbase's existing staking offering How it improves Coinbase's standing as an infrastructure as a service provider in the crypto market How the Bison Trail's team could lead to new external API services for big ticket clients and help improve existing services Chatterjee's product philosophy for Coinbase Recent moves by rivals to snag banking licenses from the OCC
