So if you really liked this episode and you're sending bitcoin, instead of sending .01btc (5 dollars), send .010139 (6 cents more) and we'll add it to the tally for this episode. If you're sending LTBcoin (the same address will accept both), instead of sending 1,000LTBc, send 1,139 for the same impact!


After about a month and a half of running sponsor auctions on the forums, I'm pleased to announce the LTB auctioneer system has been released in its initial highly experimental form thanks to @deweller. You visit auction.letstalkbitcoin.com or click the Auction option from the page menu and you'll be taken to our Token Auction portal.

Anyone can create an auction - Don't have LTBc? You might want to talk to BitOfThis Sponsor Brokers who accept Bitcoin and bid on your behalf in LTBc.
