Digitec Podcast Episode 124: FTX bankruptcy: Has the cryptocurrency system failed?

Philipp Rüegg

FTX, one of the largest crypto exchanges, is going under. The reasons for this are hair-raising. More welcome is the news that Switzerland has an astronaut again. We also talk about the new "Pokémon" game, which is breaking records despite serious flaws.

The story about the FTX crypto exchange crash is so crazy that Amazon is already planning a series on it.
Simon reveals the incredible details behind the disaster in the podcast. Marco Sieber should also soon be making a steep ascent, literally. The Swiss was recruited as an astronaut and will soon be allowed to fly into space. Many fans would like to shoot the new "Pokémon Crimson and Purple" to the moon. Despite lousy graphics and poor performance, it is a sales success.

This week, "Slumberland", "Strange World" and "Barbarian" flickered across our screens. Only one of them could inspire.

In the games corner, Luca tells us about his suffering with the unsightly "Pokémon Crimson and Purple". I, on the other hand, rave about "Atari 50: The Anniversary Celebration". An interactive and exciting journey through 50 years of Atari.

Being the game and gadget geek that I am, working at digitec and Galaxus makes me feel like a kid in a candy shop – but it does take its toll on my wallet. I enjoy tinkering with my PC in Tim Taylor fashion and talking about games on my podcast To satisfy my need for speed, I get on my full suspension mountain bike and set out to find some nice trails. My thirst for culture is quenched by deep conversations over a couple of cold ones at the mostly frustrating games of FC Winterthur.
