Nueva Germania and Other Failed Utopias feat Karl Mamer

Episode 47: Christo-currency

Christ’s cryptocurrency is on trial in Colorado. Eli and Kaitlyn Regalado have been accused of creating a worthless crypto coin and exchange, with Jesus-themed branding, that took about 3.4 million dollars from “investors” and left them holding the bag.

With a hearing scheduled in Colorado for Feb 5, instead of showing up, Regalado decided to hit the Christian revival circuit in Zambia.

Oh, yeah. And the laser-eyed crypto-maximalist president of El Salvador, Bukele, just won re-election.
