Credit card companies are making it difficult to buy crypto. But Coinbase is making easier to accept crypto on your site. Millenials are a crypto-friendly generation.

Off the Chain with Laura Shin

In a world where bitcoin confusion and crypto craziness have gripped the hearts and minds of a forward-thinking people, and of those who are frightened because they can only see the past, two men stand strong in the fight to make complicated stuff easy to understand.

I want my choice in travel. I want to pay fewer fees and have zero intermediaries for my financial transactions.

In this episode we welcome founders of Winding Tree, Bankera and Birdchain to discuss the ways in which their blockchain solutions can provide me with game-changing methods of engaging with the world around...


Joel & Travis Cheat on Each Other

You’ve heard Travis and myself do shows together, but what happens when we are interviewed by other podcast hosts? I recently was invited to be a guest on Curious with Calvin Wayman to explain blockchain and cryptocurrency. Travis was on Flip My Funnel with Sangram Varje, founder of Terminus, and he shared about the same topic. In this episode, our producer, Aaron the Tech, creates a mashup of our two appearances in what is sure to be an entertaining and enlightening look at blockchain from...


Quickie: Stop Dipping, Dipstick

It’s been a sad couple weeks in the crypto markets as Bitcoin and all its children have taken an absolute pounding. With the market cap dropping more than 60% in just a few weeks, many people are beginning to ask if crypto is over? Travis and I aren’t happy with what’s happened, but we’re also not surprised. And we’re here to provide you with some perspective that may prove useful. Should you continue buying the dips? What would Ronnie Moas say? Let’s explore the truth in this Bad Crypto...


Securrency & BnkToTheFuture

Do you ever wonder why United States residents can’t participate in so many ICOs? What’s the real difference between a security token and a utility token? And what happens if someone who isn’t supposed to buy a token ends up doing it? We visited with John Hensel of Seccurency while at the CryptoHQ house during our recent trip to Davos, and were intrigued by the depth of his knowledge. We also have a discussion with a new ICO that is building a global online investment platform. Call Doc...


Ronnie Moas is Mad!

We got a message from Ronnie Moas this morning, and he’s steaming mad! Not at you or me, but at Paypal. So we thought we’d get him on to share what’s going on as well as catch up on his take of the current state of crypto. Looks like Ronnie is becoming a Bad Crypto Correspondent, but we may just give him the title “His Supreme Royal Prognosticator of All Things Financial.” We also do a quick catch-up with Brian Ten of You may remember them from an ICO Spotlight show back in...

Interview with Brian Kean of ICORating

Hundreds of millions of dollars in crypto have gone missing in what might be the biggest crypto theft ever. The exchange world is changing as Robinhood seeks to take from the very rich Coinbase and give back to all of us by eliminating trading fees. And we are pleased to welcome Brian Keen from to the show to discuss the ICO marketplace. We’re freshly back from Davos, Switzerland and ready to deliver you the very best in badness. It’s episode #79 of The Bad Crypto...

Further Down the Rabbit Hole with Michael O’ Neal

Travis thought it would be a good idea to leave the country for a week… something about a Blockchain cruise with John McAfee and Ronnie Moas. But the show must go on, and go on it will. Way back on episode #22 we invited our friend Michael O’ Neal of the Solopreneur Hour to guest host with Travis while I was away. They discussed Michael’s journey down the rabbit hole and what it was like for a crypto-noob to start obsessing over Bitcoin. With Travis away, it’s my turn and I’m thrilled to...


Crypto MLM Scams & Government Crypto Corruption

The blockchain cruise is over and Mr. Travis Wright has a lot to share about his experience aboard the USS Crypto. But, he’s lost his voice just a bit, so this should be interesting. What’s up with South Korea and the resulting fear, uncertainty and doubt? And we’re finally ready to address a coin many of you have been asking us about. With Travis still in Singapore and me in Colorado, this is the cross-hemisphere episode #75 of The Bad Crypto Podcast. Full Show Notes at:...

Quickie: Did the Bubble Burst?

This week found many people freaking out as the recent dips in crypto turned into a nosedive with bitcoin dipping into the 8000’s and altcoins tanking 40, 50 and 60 percent. I guess it’s time to shut the doors. Close down the store. And forget about this blockchain thing. The fat lady has sung. Or perhaps this kind of so-called “crash” is nothing new in the crypto space. Have no fear, citizens of Bad Cryptopia. Your faithful hosts are here to discuss and see if we can make sense of...

How to Pay Your Bitcoin Cryptocurrency Taxes

It may look and feel like magical internet money, but the truth is that cryptocurrency is personal property. At least that is the statement from the United States Internal Revenue service. With so many questions surrounding crypto and taxes, we thought we’d invite a certified public accountant to the show. While no one likes to think about paying taxes, we’re here to help you stay legit by bringing you someone who has a handle on it. Besides, there’s no tax for listening to this show....


Jameson Lopp Drops it Like It’s Hot

If you met a cypherpunk in a dark alley, what would you say to him? If that cypherpunk was Jameson Lopp, you’d probably invite him to have a beer and discuss cryptocurrency. As luck we have it, we didn’t meet Jameson in a dark alley. We invited him to join us on the show to glean from his knowledge of the blockchain world. He’s a software engineer that speaks regular people language, and that’s good, because we’re bad. Stick around long enough and you’ll be bad too. It’s episode #72 of...
