Mike Townsend, Brian Roemmele and Faisal Khan talk Pebble, bitcoin, CES and British accents in the latest episode of Around the Coin.

This week, after a brief holiday break, I’m back on the air with my co-hosts Brian Roemmele and Faisal Khan. Brian discusses the main stage emergence of voice at CES, where a wide variety of vendors showcased the importance of voice-activated products and how this area will eventually morph into voice commerce.

Also in the show, we discuss how the evolution of quantum computers may crash bitcoin (among other things, such as secure communication, SSL certificates, and so on). Lastly, we discuss how Pebble, which had the most successful Kickstarter campaign ever, went out of business, and what this means for Apple Watch.

You can listen to more episodes of Around the Coin, and other fintech shows, on the BankNXT podcast page. Enjoy!
