[VIDEO] Decrypting Bitcoin: Blockchain Technology Explained

Two of the co-hosts of Neocash Radio—JJ Epic and Randy Clemens—created this video to explain the benefits of using Bitcoin, as well as to provide an informative overview of how Bitcoin works under the hood to someone who may have never even heard of it.

If you’re new to cryptocurrencies: WELCOME! And if you’re an expert, we hope this intro video will be a valuable tool that you’re inspired to pass along to curious friends and family!

Through our new media studio—5th Quill Studios—we will be producing more in-depth videos to explain Ethereum, DASH, Steemit, and the Federal Reserve soon! (We’ll also be upgrading Neocash Radio to be a video podcast in the coming months!)

Bitcoin is so much more than just an electronic payment system…

Many call cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin “the future of money,” but a majority of people don’t really know much about them. What are cryptocurrencies? How do they work? How do you get them? Where can you use them? And what makes them safer, faster, and often cheaper to use than cash or credit?

We created this helpful video to answer these questions and more, walking you through an in-depth overview of this paradigm shift in money. You’ll see how Bitcoin is already benefitting millions of users across the globe, and you’ll learn how you can be one of them.

Join us as we decrypt Bitcoin, from its enigmatic beginnings in late 2008 to a look at its promising future. We’ll also explore the breakthrough technology underneath Bitcoin—”the blockchain”—and how it can change more than just our relationship with money; it can transform our societies, our governments, our businesses, and possibly our every interaction.
