The price is BTC is about $57,000.00 USD at the time of the recording.

Today we welcome back Douglas Tuman to the show. Doug hosts Monero Talk and a live interactive live show called "Monerotopia".
"Monero is a decentralized cryptocurrency. It uses a public distributed ledger with privacy-enhancing technologies that obfuscate transactions to achieve anonymity and fungibility. Observers cannot decipher addresses trading monero, transaction amounts, address balances, or transaction histories." (Wikipedia, 2021)
Doug has interviewed many popular figures in the Bitcoin and Cryptocurrency space including Peter McCormack, Roger Ver, Andreas Antonopolous, and many more. In 2020, he ran for office for New York's 4th Congressional District. Doug upholds the anonymity ideals of cryptocurrency, and spends his time promoting and building up the Monero commerce ecosystem.
