Podcasting “The Byzantine Premium”

A pumpkin pie with a slice missing. The pie has been overlaid with a pie-chart, in which the pieces are labelled with an icon of a confused businessman, a dollar sign, a circle with the word ‘NEW!’ in the middle, and a ‘lotto’ logo. The tin beneath the missing slice reveals a section of a glittering Bitcoin.
