The new Nigerian president is cleaning house by eliminating graft including 50,000 ghosts on the government payrolls. Chinese suffers from debt woes leading to a crackdown on capital flight, a censorship of the New York Times and a crumbling Yuan. Swarm City distances themselves from Arcade City founder Christopher David. Zcash published a video hyping up the security and techniques they used to create the cryptocurrency. Last weeks Monero price jump may have been caused by an announcement that they would be targeting the Chinese market. JJ and Darren discuss how an up-and-coming new cryptocurrency may end up eating Bitcoin’s lunch.

YouTube channel launched! Video podcasts coming soon!

Great news for Neocash Radio listeners! We’ve been working feverishly over the last few months to enhance our coverage of global economic policy, cryptocurrency news, decentralization, and blockchain technology; part of that intention was to get our podcast onto more platforms to make it easier for people to discover, listen to, and share.

In that vein, allow us to present the brand new Neocash Media YouTube channel! We’ve teased for a few weeks now that we’re working to build a video podcast room here at Neocash Radio HQ—we’re gearing up to start construction this month—but we’ve begun uploading our audio feed with some graphics to YouTube in the meantime. (We hope to have live video along with our weekly podcast by year’s end!)

Here’s last week’s episode—Ep 180: All eyes on Zcash launch, Obama Administration steals $5 Billion, Cell 411 beats Arcade City—posted to YouTube:

Don’t forget to tune in to Neocash Radio EVERY Wednesday night! We also post occasional special segments and bonus interviews — if you don’t want to miss a single update, SUBSCRIBE! In addition to our new YouTube channel, we’ve added several content providers in the last few months! Pick your flavor: iTunesGoogle Play MusicSoundcloudStitcherTunein, Player.FM, Overcast.FM, Podcast Addict, Blubrry, and more!  Continue reading

[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.
