NeoCash Radio and the NeoCash Radio logo has been used to perpetuate a scam! There is a google doc, weak sauce, that purports to offer the sale of NCR or NeoCash Radio tokens. This google doc has no affiliation with NeoCash Radio and is a scam. Please do not send ether to this contract address.
There appear to be a bunch of transactions sent to the contract address. I would like to think that anyone who actually listens to the show would know this is a scam from the onset. We would have promoted it in our podcast at least once.
This highlights one potential issue with the current breed of investors/gamblers: they don’t do much research. If a bad actor was going to fleece the crypto newbies, now is a good time for it. Please be ever vigilant and research what you are sending crypto to. Also be sure to check out the destination address on etherscan or another prominent block explorer. Continue reading →

Since April of 2013 NeoCash Radio has been providing honest, fact-driven cryptocurrency news and commentary. We have self-funded the show with the idea that we would be more ethical and objective. We are thrilled with the growth in downloads, listeners, and feedback.
In 2017 I conducted a series of interviews to see how much interest and audience I could capture. The results were impressive and with that in mind I am trying out a new interview series.
a sponsored interview series
For $1000.00 equivalent in Ether, DASH or Bitcoin Cash I will interview whichever blockchain based crypto project the buyer wishes (provided they consent to an interview). I will give it the same diligence as my previous series: I will research the subject, prepare a list of questions, share the questions in advance and then on a scheduled date and time record a 30:00 to 60:00 minute audio only interview. The interviews will be published as creative commons and typically within 1 to 3 days after recording (depending on weekend timing — I do not typically publish on the weekends). Additionally a YouTube video will also be published prominently displaying the name and logo of the subject.
Please sample any of these interviews for examples of the quality and craftsmanship:
If you wish to take part in this exciting opportunity please contact me by email and include the words NeoCash Newsmakers in the subject. Thanks! firstname.lastname@example.org
Disclaimer: I retain the right to reject any interview for any reason. I make no guarantee or warranty of certain results and my interview is not an endorsement or indication of support. I will do my best to make bad audio better. Interviews are conducted with zencastr and the subjects need to access zencastr.com with a pc/mac through a browser. Your mileage may vary.
