Todays show was from a post by Trevor Smith at Bitcoinist and brought to you by BitBlockBoom, the great Bitcoin Conference coming to Dallas, Texas in August. This is a true Bitcoin event, not a crypto event or a blockchain event, so if you are interested in Bitcoin please take a look at BitBlockBoom.com.
