EP04 S2 – Taproot, VRA & Elon the troll


It’s certainly been an important week in the cryptocurrency space as Bitcoin launched their Taproot update, which is their first major upgrade since 2017. In this episode, we cover what you need to know about Taproot and how it makes transactions on the Bitcoin network more secure and efficient. We will also discuss what the update means for investors in the short term and the long term.


Kevin and Ben also discuss all things Verasity (VRA), which is one of their favorite cryptocurrency projects. Verasity’s mission is to “significantly increase engagement and advertising revenues for video publishers on any video platform”. They have also recently announced an exciting partnership with Axie Infinity, an NFT-based online video game.
