Your new favorite podcast from two dudes who love Bitcoins & have nice beards.

Back in 2018, BitBoy and JChains met up at a conference in Chicago. Both were in the Crypto space for a while and jokingly decided to start a podcast. 2 weeks later they were recording their first episode, and it took off from there.

They're just two dudes, with nice beards, and love for Bitcoin… and the crypto community.

Leah joins us today to discuss how we can grow the crypto community. We discuss what we need to do to bring adoption to the masses and the importance of providing value to new crypto adopters. She highlights the need to create new reasons for people to use crypto. She also discusses how founders should pitch when looking for investment.



“If we don't want it to be an exclusive game, then we have to be more serious about how we're getting people in and presenting value to someone.” - Leah Jonas
