Brian Roemmele and Faisal Khan talk about the rise of bitcoin, and cover the recent announcements from Apple at WWDC 2017.

This week, Brian Roemmele and Faisal Khan discuss the epic rise of bitcoin. Once termed as a fad or tulip mania, it is fair to say, bitcoin has reached critical mass and there’s no way the genie can be put back into the bottle now.

Brian also discusses attending Apple WWDC (World Wide Developers Conference) that happened last week. In addition, ICO (or Initial Coin Offering) is all the rage these days. We briefly talk about what ICOs are (in a very non-technical manner) and discuss some of the pros and cons of this new form of capital raising.

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