On today’s show we travel to Cleveland Heights, Ohio for a stroll down Lee Road, the very first Bitcoin Boulevard in the U.S. There we meet up with Educator Nikhil Chand of CoinNEO, a Bitcoin consultancy. Nikhil is the brains behind the Boulevard and the motivating force that brought these merchants together to make a Boulevard that the Bitcoin community can be proud of!

Nikhil also goes into detail about CoinNEO and what a great tool it has been for helping him teach merchants about safe and secure Bitcoin practices

Joining Nikhil for this interview is Adam Fleischer, techie and owner of The Wine Spot – the flagship business that got things going there in Cleveland Heights. Adam gives us a bird’s eye view of what it’s like to be a local merchant accepting Bitcoin and he makes a strong argument for how accepting Bitcoin can enhance the merchant experience . . . and the bottom line.

We also beam down to the surface of the beltway again for another great interview by our Guy on the Ground, Kirk (Captain Kirk) Phillips.  Kirk interviews Manie Eagar who has a wealth of information to share with us about the Global Bitcoin Alliance.
