I've listened to this episode twice already and it's still tense and fascinating.

This episode literally made my heart skipped. Fascinating story about the elaborate initiation and creation of a more private cryptocurrency called ZCash. This is a great episode whether you’re a crypto enthusiast or not. Definitely going on my favourites-of-all-time list.

@molinos This is also one of the best crypto episodes and just best episodes I've ever listened to hands down. It has nothing to do with scams or One Coin, but just a fun and wild nerdy ride :D
