InSecurity Podcast: Steve Snyder on the past, present and  future of currency

Fortnite and Bitcoin and Dollars OH MY! What makes real money... REAL?

What if I told you a man named Matthew Mellon owned a cache of Ripple that at one point was valued at over $1 BILLION and was still worth over $500 MILLION at the time of his unexpected death

Mellon claimed to have kept the digital keys to his Ripple wallet locked in cold storage in other people's names at various locations around the US

What does the family of the deceased do in a situation like this?

What does anyone do with the notion of hundreds of millions of dollars in value that is locked away and utterly inaccessible?

What the hell is Ripple anyway?

In this episode of the InSecurity Podcast, Steve Snyder joins Matt Stephenson and Edward Preston for a look into the fact, fiction and myth of crypto-currencies. And just to make things a bit weirder… we’re also going to talk about weapon skins that are trading for $50,000 inside games.




Noodle on that for a minute…
