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.
