Bitfinex/Tether to Stand Trial, The Coindesk 20, Earn Dash on Discord…and more! | CATV LIVE

After upgrading the audio settings last week, CATV LIVE returns this week with brand new visuals. Tether (through Bitfinex) is apparently missing 850M dollars of users funds, and is going to stand trial. Coindesk releases their top 20 ranking, but how did they arrive at their conclusions? If you are personable, and like chatting with like-minded individuals, there may be some crypto-making opportunities coming up on Dash Nation on Discord. All this and more on this weekend’s CATV LIVE!

Today we’re talking about the Phoenix Dash Evolution Open House, the disappearance of MooCowMoo and his relation to Dash, weird activity happening in the r/Cryptocurrency subreddit, and our main topic, Ethereum dev Virgil Griffith’s visit to North Korea to teach them how to use blockchain to evade sanctions. He got arrested for that action, but not everyone thinks he should have.
