Centra Card Interview with President Sam Sharma

In this special episode of Neocash Radio JJ interviews Sam Sharma the co-founder and president of Centra. The Centra Card is a cryptocurrency based debit card that will allow users to spend Bitcoin, Dash, Ether, ERC 20 tokens, Ripple, Zcash, Monero, and Litecoin. US customers would receive a VISA card and international customers would receive a MASTERCARD — the Centra Card would be linked to a wallet app which could be loaded with crypto.

Sam describes his personal experience with crypto and how the Centra company has been self-funded thus far. After operating for more than a year in secret the company announced their presence in July.

The product is currently running a beta test and will be launched before the end of the year. The CTR token sale is ongoing as of this posting. Centra’s CTR token would facilitate rewards for cardholders and token holders alike — much like other crypto debit cards.

Finally Centra is also building a cryptocurrency based marketplace called C-Bay. Sam indicates that at launch there will be more than 100,000 products available for purchase.

Santiment Interview with Founder Maksim

In this special episode JJ interviews Maksim Balashevich the founder of Santiment. Having recently held a successful token sale based on the Ethereum blockchain Santiment is building a platform for cutting-edge data feeds covering cryptocurrency markets similar to what you might find on the Bloomberg Terminal.

Maksim describes his history with traditional stock trading and how he discovered Bitcoin. A recurring theme is his focus on gauging trader and market sentiment. The Santiment platform will offer several options for subscribing and trying the data feeds. There is also a long term plan to provide a SanBase database of general and validated company/project information for free.

Part of the issue with the current climate in crypto news is the lack of coverage surrounding the newest projects. There are simply too many to track without a large organization. On top of that, the early days of a project tend to include the Initial Coin/Token Offering when the need for due diligence information is the highest.

Introducing: Neocash Crypto Radio in Russian!

The Neocash Radio Family of cryptocurrency podcasts is growing!

Yury and Michael have published the first episode of their podcast: Neocash Crypto Radio in Russian! Congratulations to you both!

You can check it out by using the language switcher on the side column —–>

(or at the bottom if on mobile)

This marks the beginning of what I hope will be a sea-change here at Neocash Radio. The first independently owned ‘sister-station’ contributing to the Neocash brand of cryptocurrency news podcasts. No B.S., no hype, no price speculation. Instead we offer fact-driven stories from around the world.

With each new language we will open up Neocash to a new audience. In many parts of the world there is little to no media sharing the news of the day and offering security warnings and advice — especially in the local language. We aim to change that and quickly.

We have additional cryptocurrency podcasts in the works so stay tuned to NeocashRadio.com
