Junseth’s World Episode 20: Goxsgiving, Futures, Tether, and Beyond
Here at Bitsonline, we’re always trying to find the best podcasts for your Bitcoin and blockchain education. Then there’s Junseth’s World. We can promise you this much at least: you’ll always learn something you didn’t know before you listened … and probably never thought to find out.
Your South Florida Bitcoin Education Continues
In episode #20, Junseth and Dante chat about CME’s and Nasdaq’s bitcoin futures products — have they really thought it through? What does it mean to buy bitcoin futures anyway?
They ponder the implications, such as, do you actually get bitcoin at the end of the contract? What if its outputs are pre-forks from 2017 — will you get bonus Bitcoin Cash, Gold, and whatever?
Dante is the kind of guy who always reads the fine print of a contract and has a few tips on how to take advantage of them. The hosts also discuss Tethers, and try to decide if they make complete sense or are the most ridiculous idea in cryptocurrency since Paycoin.

For the Uninitiated: WTF Is Junseth’s World?
Junseth (a.k.a. Joshua Unseth) is one of the most notorious
yet respected thought leaders in Bitcoin.
Loathed by most corporate blockchain industry participants and pretty much everyone else, the controversial South Florida resident embodies that region’s unique approach to business. He has seen and done things for Bitcoin you probably never imagined … and some you wished you could un-imagine.
Somewhere in all of that, you actually get a good education and some surprisingly useful insights into the world of finance, trading, business and economics.
On top of his tireless Bitcoin advocacy, Junseth campaigns to close the gender salary gap in the world of modeling and to abolish attractive-people privilege across all industries.
