2017-05-05: Give USA your Username, Bitcoin Rush, Sheeple, and Ninjas!

Bitcoin Gold Rush

May 5, 2017 – We are in Matsumoto, Japan, at the Tabi-shiro Guesthouse & Lounge to talk about the US government demanding 5 years of social media history to enter the country, bitcoin’s post-Trump election bump, the demand for professional ninjas, China’s Boeing and Airbus competition, and more! Nobody became belligerent this episode, but we did have a crowd watching us and we managed to finish in under an hour! We drink Asahi draft beer, Yona Yona beer, Andong soju and ginger ale! We have no idea what we’re talking about… we’re just here for the booze!
