Apple’s relative hostility to the wishes of cryptocurrency developers has not gone unnoticed, and as the industry heads into a bear market, some of its supporters are pushing plans to rebuild the iPhone with their industry’s best interests in mind.
Hello and welcome back to chain reaction Podcast, where we unpack and explain the latest cryptocurrency news, drama, and trends, and we break it down into a curious block.
This week, my co-host Anita was on hold, so I joined TC+ Senior Crypto Reporter Jacquie Melinek who discussed some wild crypto events including FTX’s courtship with Robinhood and the latest Celsius drama.
We also talked about this week’s big surprise announcement: the Solana-powered Saga smartphone. The new device will work with encryption capabilities baked into its silicon while working as a regular Android smartphone as well. The device doesn’t ship until next year, allegedly, and Jackie and I had plenty of ideas, so listen to that above!
Our guest: Julian Holguin, CEO of Doodles
