    The more time it takes to explain a new idea is directly related to the complications and weakness of the idea.
    To many extra twists and turns for me.
    You may not like cash but at least you can figure out the value of the line item!

    I'm impressed by RV covering Maker. I think this is definitely one of the most ambitious and best engineered projects being built on Ethereum. I've known about them since inception but only recently decided to dig deeper and I must say, it's of great utility to me.

    If you want to understand the vision behind Maker, I recommend a recent talk from DevCon IV:

    Hey great interview! He forgot to mention MCD (multi collateral Dai) that will launch in the next 6 months. A lot of down votes but guys look at fundamentals. They own a Dex in oasis and oasis direct. They have the stablecoin attached with a credit system. When MCD lunches they will be putting in all kinds of assets. When this does happen it will connect real world assets to the Blockchain. Tokenization of assets will start.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but it seems to me that the guest got the "use cases" for both Ethereum and Maker wrong. ETH is designed to be a smart contract platform, not digital cash like BTC was originally supposed to be. The volatility in the value ETH doesn't effect the value of a smart contract running on the ETH platform. (It might effect the "gas" price, but only insignificantly.) And MKR isn't supposed to be used as digital cash, either. It's designed to be an intermediary of stable value for trading coins between different exchanges, like USDT.

    I really like the coverage of the crypto market, however i do not think covering stable coins is a good use of time/ effort as compared to covering other more cutting edge technology coins.
