This past week I had the privilege of sitting on my front porch and chatting with 3 great fellows from the Bitshares community, Brandon Lovejoy, Tim Fesenko and Rob Konsdorf. These guys are on a road trip, traveling around the region telling people about Bitshares. I learned more about Bitshares from these guys in 1 hour than I have in reading about Bitshares over the past year.
Hidden in each episode of Bitcoins and Gravy is a Magic Word. I know that it may sound absurd, but listen for the Magic Word and you can earn LTBcoin! First set up a free account at LetsTalkBitcoin.com. Then tune in to your favorite LTB podcast and when you hear the Magic Word, don’t delay! Submit it to your account and by doing so you will earn a portion of the week's LTBcoin distribution. Setting up an LTB account has always been fast and easy... and now it’s profitable!!!

“Bitshares is trying to create a contract free digital economy, it’s profitable freedom. You can invest in a peer to peer network that is trying to devolve manipulative powers in the world and level the playing field for everybody.”
“We need to come together and stop dividing the crypto-space into tribes, we need to all work together towards the common goal.”
Thanks Bitshares guys! It was great meeting you!
If you've enjoyed the show, please take a minute to scan my QR code or copy my public key and send me 50 cents in Bitcoin. If you’ll do this every once in a while, it will help out more than you know. Friends it’s not easy being a podcast host - and putting in 10 hours each week to produce the show sometimes takes its toll. Remember that giving someone a small tip in Bitcoin is what makes us Bitcoin folks stand out in this world. I know personally that whenever I tip someone on Reddit or on Let’s Talk Bitcoin, I feel better about myself knowing that I’ve given back just a little to help that person continue creating.
Great news listeners! Our transcription page is now live on the website thanks to the continuing hard work of one of our loyal listeners who is also a consultant to the show.
We are striving to roll out each new transcript within a short period of time following the release of each podcast. We are also working on eventually going back and transcribing MOST of the archived episodes, starting with Episode #51 and working our way back until we have completed the very first episode, Episode #1, Numero Uno of Bitcoins and Gravy! Our ultimate goal is have most episodes of Bitcoins and Gravy transcribed and available to you the listener for free. These Professional transcriptions are provided each week by one of our fans who can be found at:
