Junseth’s World Episode 36: Turtle Poop
Dante’s back on Junseth’s World this week, and with him returns the debate on gun control, off-topic banter and the show’s general entertainment value. Don’t worry though, there’s plenty of discussion on what constitutes an attack on a blockchain, whether tokens will be the death of Ethereum, and what’s the best weight-loss diet: keto, turtle poisoning, or cocaine?

Who Attacked Who and Did They Mean it?
Dante bolts right out of the gate to note #MeToo is actually pronounced “pound me too”, something no-one who listens to the episode will be able to un-see.
In light of the recent 51 percent attack on Bitcoin Gold, what is an “attack” on a cryptocurrency or blockchain, exactly? Junseth feels they’re like many scams — often their perpetrators don’t intend any harm, yet harm somehow results. Unintended uses of blockchain functionality like Cryptokitties and Counterparty may actually be defined as attacks, but as transactions are they any different to buying a coffee?
Meanwhile, despite the attack, Bitcoin Gold’s value continues to follow the same trajectory as other cryptos, so maybe no-one’s paying attention anyway.
Listen to the whole episode to hear those discussions, plus what irritates Junseth most about libertarians, the injustice of why LGBTTQQIAAP doesn’t include furries, and that age-old question: if a fly falls in holy water, is the water contaminated or does the fly become holy?
For the Uninitiated: WTF Is Junseth’s World?
JW hosts Junseth, Dante and Shaun are Bitcoin’s Florida Men. The only one of the team who’s ever eaten a turtle is the same one who’s never heard of hentai — but as we know, correlation doesn’t equal causation.
Spawned from the greater Miami area blockchain scene, the three reluctant sitcom housemates embody that region’s unique approach to business. They’ve seen and done things for Bitcoin you probably never imagined … and some you wished you could un-imagine.
Somewhere in the mix, you actually get a good education and some surprisingly useful insights into the world of finance, trading, business and economics. Subscribe to the entire series on Soundcloud.
