So, I want to appologize for this issue and explain what's happening.
Basically, LTBN's podcast feeds have been hitting their capacity limits of 15,000 downloads per day on quite a lot of days for the last month or two. This issue is because when we built the LTBN, we built it on top of Soundcloud - All podcasters post to their own soundcloud account and then the website combines everything together into different RSS feeds. When we built it, Soundcloud has no download cap. Then they added one, and for a long time it didnt matter because we were under the cap, and now it matters a lot because we're hitting the cap regularly. Soundcloud does not let us pay more or take any other actions to increase our limit.
From a technical perspective, this is not a small problem - We have to redo our system and change our backend + whole process.
From your perspective, it's really annoying - The way you get around it for the time being is to play the podcast episodes on the episode page using the embedded soundcloud player, going to the episodes soundcloud page, or downloading it via the episodes soundcloud page.
We are working on resolving the issue, but it's not going to be immediate.

Hey all, the button is working again - https://letstalkbitcoin.com/ltbcoin-to-poe-exchange I'll be handing off the next batch end of this year or early next year, so fulfillment will happen at that time.Posted on December 13, 2017 at 9:41 AM
Hey all, looks like there is something wrong with the swap not asking for ERC20 addresses, we're looking into this and will be back online soon.Posted on December 6, 2017 at 10:10 AM
Update - POE is being distributed today, if you redeemed your LTBCOIN before friday of last week you will be recieving your POE. If you turned it in more recently than that, you'll be in the next distribution. We'll be doing distributions of POE to LTBCOIN exchangers on a monthly basis.
Thanks!Posted on August 29, 2017 at 3:35 PM
@kn Hm, I'm a little confused. I send the LTBCOIN directly to the burn address from the counterparty wallet?
No. On the poet conversion page, put in the amount of LTBCOIN you have where it says "Quantity" and then "Buy Now" to start the conversion process. Once you've entered the required info you'll be given an invoice to pay the LTBCOIN to, which will verify your purchase and then direct it automatically to the burn addressPosted on August 8, 2017 at 8:39 PM
POE tokens will be distributed within 30 days of the tokensale end.Posted on August 8, 2017 at 11:07 AM
Soon!®Posted on July 18, 2017 at 9:33 AM
Counterwallet changed domains from .co to .io, so that is correct.
Also if you haven't opened your wallet in a long time, once logged in click "Import Funds" then "From Old Wallet" and that'll let you import any tokens associated with your old wallet using the same passphrase.Posted on June 26, 2017 at 5:17 AM

Andreas, Stephanie and Adam discuss bitcoin and its varied performance over the last few years as the only real outlier in a world competitively devaluing currencies. Then, we dig into a recently released report from the RAND corporation on "Virtual Currency" and specifically, the possibility of non-state organizations creating their own.

Open Source Hardware is a popular and growing movement. An organization (sometimes charity, usually a non-profit) develops hardware designs and specifications and publishes them to the open source without the desire or potentially the ability to produce the physical products exclusively themselves.
The Raspberry Pi project is a perfect example of this with two official stocking manufacturers who share back some of their revenue in compensation for their official status. This money supports further development. By adding three types of tokens to the ecosystem, what is a game for only the biggest of players can become a vibrant environment of efficient, decentralized and distributed reselling. Now distribution can start to take place.Read More

You don't need to be technical to understand this episode and even if you hate the idea of a block size increase, Andrew presents a very interesting perspective on how the bitcoin network does, and could decide things that have more than one right answer.Read More

This week instead of talking about a current Tokenly project, I wanted to get a little hypothetical and talk about one of the non-monetary uses of Tokens that I sometimes think about.
Tokens, Trains and Right-of-Way
Some time ago I was spoke with Birdie Jaworski, editor of Very Much Wow magazine about tokens and train intersections. Right now train systems have lots of dumb infrastructure (Tracks, switches, etc) carrying smart (automated) trains from smart station to smart station.
So trains and stations need to talk to each other in order to keep an accurate picture of where the various moving parts are. When those moving parts find themselves in the same place at the same time you get a news-worthy catastrophe.
Imagine for a moment we have unlimited funds and manpower to fix this problem. The simplest way would be to station a traffic controller at every single junction with a powerful two way radio, a brain and the ability to communicate with nearby trains.
The procedure would be that whenever a train is approaching a specific intersection, track switch or anything where only one, or some limited number of trains can pass through safely at one time, the conductor radios ahead to that switches traffic controller. If the coast is clear, you know you’re safe to pass because he will tell any other trains that request after you do, but before you’ve safely passed by that the switch is busy and they’ll need to wait.Read More

A Little Color is a 5+1 song EP (extended play, so not as long as an album but more than a single song), and it's available in DRM free downloadable format for $5 in bitcoin, $7 when you pay with your credit card or $2.50 in LTBCOIN. If you have an EARLY token or a TOKENLY token, you can use that as payment as well.
If you'd like access to more of my music and support the time I spend on this, you can purchase one or more access tokens as described at the top of this site.
A Little Color may be streamed for free within this postRead More
