Hello and welcome!

Magical Crypto Friends is a collaboration between Charlie Lee (the inventor of Litecoin), Samson Mow (CSO of Blockstream and CEO of Pixelmatic), Riccardo Spagni (lead maintainer of Monero), and WhalePanda (expert trader). In October 2017 they came up with the idea of doing a YouTube show together which turned out to be easily accepted by the public and gained much popularity. They’ve released an episode every month since then, which is an interesting combination of news and technical issues in bitcoin, explained in a humorous way that everyone can understand.
