This week on Speakeasy Security, Tony and Ranson dive headfirst into the Bitcoin craze. Our hosts explain what Bitcoin is, how they are made, and why crypto currencies provide an unprecedented level of anonymity.  With one Bitcoin transaction consuming more energy than the average home, our hosts also explore the massive carbon footprint left from Bitcoin mining. Whether you’re interested in learning the differences between Bitcoin and physical (fiat) currency or if you would simply like to know how to protect your crypto currency wallet, join us for another exciting episode of Speakeasy Security.
