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:

Bitcoin Unlimited: Special Interview with Roger Ver

In this bonus episode of Neocash Radio, Bitcoin angel investor & Bitcoin.com CEO Roger Ver talks with JJ, Darren, and Randy about Bitcoin Unlimited, a new initiative that lets Bitcoin miners dictate the block size they want to use. Could this be an end to the BTC block size debate? Will this require a hard fork? Could that create two different Bitcoin chains like what happened with Ethereum? What does Roger plan to do if Bitcoin doesn’t scale and loses its value? We also discuss censorship on Reddit’s r/bitcoin channel, the Lightning Network, SegWit, and more!

Exciting news! It’s been busy here at Neocash Radio HQ — we’ve actually been using a new studio we’re constructing in Manchester, NH! We’re now posting new episodes every Wednesday night, not Sunday as in the past.

JJ and Darren have delivered Neocash Radio each week for over three years, and they’ve agreed it was time to start looking at how to best grow the show and produce more important content for their loyal listener base. They’ve also added me—Randy Clemens—to the line-up as a new co-host! Hi!

We’ve also seen some nice equipment upgrades to tune our sound in even tighter, and we’re also in the process of getting set up for video podcasting in the near future, not only for the weekly show, but also to bring you breaking economic, cryptocurrency, and blockchain news/updates throughout the week.

To ensure you don’t miss out on the latest world economic and banking news as well as updates on blockchains, Bitcoin, and other cryptocurrencies, make sure you subscribe to our feed! We’ve added a few new streams recently: you can now follow Neocash Radio on Google Play Music, iTunes, Stitcher, Tunein, Player.FM, and Blubrry!

New to Bitcoin?

Bitcoin and crypto-currencies in general can be difficult to understand by many. Even the tech-savvy have questions with this new breed of digital commerce. Part of the idea behind Neocash Radio is breaking down the idea into easy to digest and understand components. We are trying to make the topics available for all audiences.
Bitcoin101

Starting out we have a micro-podcast that simply explains how bitcoin works and how you can remain secure with your coins. This tutorial is meant for newbies so we try to avoid too much technical jargon. There is much to understand if you want to have all the information necessary to make an informed decision. If you want to have a better grasp on bitcoin and litecoin, take a listen to this micro-cast:

The next step in the process deals with wallets. Wallets, much like real life, hold your coins and serve as an address book for people you send coins to. This is where security really gets important. Your wallet, just like your physical wallet, must be protected from theft and there are a few ways to do this. If you are looking for information on how to set up a wallet online, on your computer, and on your smart phone take a listen to this micro-cast:

Finally in order to fully understand the entire bitcoin process you need to have an idea how the coins are created. You also need to understand how the ledger — or blockchain — is created and maintained. This is the fundamental core of the crypto-currencies. When an individual wants to send bitcoins to someone else what they are actually doing is broadcasting a message to the network, in effect saying, I am sending X coins to X address. Unlike credit cards and dollar transactions the exchange of bitcoins and litecoins is a one-way conversation. If you want to better understand mining, take a listen to this
micro-cast:

We are always looking for better ways to explain these ideas and if you have an questions, comments, or suggestions please let us know. You can send me an email at jj AT neocashradio.com (replace the spaces and AT with @).
