I had a ton of fun recording this podcast, however, due to time constraints I was not able to get to all my notes on whether or not Tether acts in good faith. I would like to summarize a few of the things I was not able to get to here:
Bitfinex has used the bank accounts of friends and family of Bitfinex in order to service withdrawals.
The firm who provided Tether’s last attestation is no longer operational, and Freeh, one of the lawyer behind it UPDATE:is no longer a lawyer is no longer practicing law, but may still be licensed.
Tether advertised no KYC swaps between Bitcoin and Tether.
Tether held tens of millions of dollars in the bank account of their General Counsel.
The founder of Bitfinex was promoting ponzis right up until he announced Bitfinex.
The founder of Bitfinex once described his own exchange as a bucket shop.
There are many more, but I just wanted to give you a taste of some of the stuff we ran out of time to get to.
This episode was a request from Al Boulley, who was curious about the effect of certain minerals on human health, and in this one I focused in on magnesium. Magnesium may have benefit for depression, anxiety, insulin sensitivity, glycemic control, and even testosterone.
Before I start what is likely going to be one of my controversial episodes, I need to make it very clear that I love football. I played for a decade and coached for seven years. However, there is emerging evidence of a link between football and heart disease. On a more personal note, several of the men who have coached me at different points in my career have died from heart attacks. Take every effort you can to control the risk factors you can. Consult regularly with your physician, and make sure that you are working with him to control your blood pressure, your cholesterol, and everything else you can.
