Dish Network appears to be pushing its unusual approach to wireless network construction all the way to the blockchain. Executives speaking at a Las Vegas analyst event today hinted at their vision for the country’s fourth wireless carrier, which might include a future in which you can pay for a new iPhone with Bitcoin.
