Chris Skinner sits in for Brett King on this episode of the Breaking Banks podcast series, produced by Rachel Morrissey.

Bitcoin seems to invite endless debate about the legitimacy of cryptocurrencies. With Wall Street entering the game of investing in or using bitcoin blockchain technologies, it has become necessary for mainstream banking to reckon with bitcoin and what it represents.

Guest host Chris Skinner, author of Digital Bank, talks to Chris Larsen, CEO of Ripple, about its $28m raise, and with Dan Marovitz, president of Europe, Earthport. He then talks to author Tim Swanson, author Jeffrey Robinson, Todd McDonald (partner, R3CEV), and Brock Pierce (chairman of the Bitcoin Foundation), about the legitimacy or lack of bitcoins and the possible uses of the blockchain.
