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
Hey folks, Stephanie and I recorded with Jonathan Mohan earlier this week for show #331 but the episode is going to be out on Wednesday, rather than today.

Announcement has been delayed until 8am pacific tomorrow, it'll be on the front page at that time.Posted on March 23, 2017 at 7:16 PM

BTC Media, a leading information provider in the distributed ledger space, announced today that it has acquired The LTB Network.
The move adds the company to BTC Media’s other publication holdings, including Distributed, Bitcoin Magazine, yBitcoin and Gongshitan, among others. As part of the acquisition, The LTB Network will undergo a relaunch in the second half of 2017 which will include an extensive rebranding.
“We are thrilled to add The LTB Network to our list of industry-leading information services,” said BTC Media CEO David Bailey. “This strengthens our ability to help audiences stay ahead of trends in the digital currency space and implement best practices for their assets.”
The LTB Network’s Founder and Editor-in-Chief Adam B. Levine will remain host of the flagship “Let’s Talk Bitcoin!” show and serve on the network’s editorial board.
“Our goal has always been to showcase the disruptive ideas, people and projects that are leading innovation in digital currency,” Levine said. “This is a new opportunity to grow our audience and better serve our podcasters and writers by focusing more of our time on creating better content, not selling ads.”
Founded in 2011, BTC Media is the world’s largest provider of multimedia, educational, conferences and other high-value informational resources focused on the digital currency and blockchain industries.
Founded in 2014, The LTB Network has for years been the home to a distributed group of independent broadcasters and journalists working toward better understanding, exploring and explaining the phenomenon of digital currency.
“This change marks a vitally important mechanism for BTC media to engage audiences worldwide,” Bailey said. “We are excited to expand the number of podcasts and place new focus on production value. We look forward to building on the foundation that Adam has established and taking it to the next level.”
The LTB Network has been a testbed of innovation with a proprietary content management system, token controlled-access forums and more. It was the first to launch a rewards program using a digital currency, LTBCoin, which was awarded to content creators and audience members according to their “Proof of Participation” score.
Following the acquisition, LTBCoin holders will be given the chance to participate in a new, “Proof of Existence 2.0” project, with details to be released later this year. It shares The LTB Network’s spirit of exploration into disruptive technology. Details and updates can be found at po.et.
