    Great show Thomas, Tone, and Jeff!

    It was especially nice to see Tone make a reappearance on WCN. Now it would be cool to see Jimmy back too sometime in the not-too-distant future. None of us NEED any other than Thomas on WCN (Thomas is the original!)… I will watch, upvote, and stay subscribed anyway, but it’s just nice when everyone is getting along and everything is better that way too. But if there are irreconcilable differences, that’s ok too, just unfortunate, but that’s how things go sometimes.

    I watch Jimmy, Tone, & Heart on their own channels, as each has certain very important qualities I like and appreciate, but Thomas and WCN are extra special for a variety of reasons. Keep up the great work Thomas and everyone!!

    I wish you all happiness, health, and great success in 2018 “and beyond”…. you deserve it!

    If Bitcoin can't decrease the fees then it will have massive problems. Only 2 months ago I moved Bitcoin around for the equivalent of USD0.04! Now it would cost at least USD15. At least. I'm not moving my Bitcoin to a Segwit address until I can do it for a very low fee. 2MB blocks would have helped in the short term and should have been adopted by BTC (not some B2X alt dev team).

    Great video, again guys. I think we need to continue to look at BCash for what it is: a hostile takeover. And there have been at least two or three failed attempts, and they continue to try their takeover until the community as a whole spits down the neck of the people behind it. What they do is not nice by any stretch of the imagination. They have polluted people's minds and used all out propaganda to get their agenda across. I am confident however that BCash will be left in the rear as BTCs scalability issues are solved. People need to see it for what it is, then they will have the moment if clarity that they need. Keep up the good work, gents.

    I don't own credit cards. I would like to directly deposit my check into BTC and pay with a debit card. I'd love to pay crypto directly but we just are not there yet.

    Good to see Tone back on the Bitcoin Group. Gotta get rid of Andy Hoffman you guys, he's just bad for your reputation as a precious metals pumper, typical bucket shop scamster pump artist.

    Thanks for the amazing info. Can a project like Tokenpay, that claims to buy a bank and issue debit cards , have a wallet and exchange, become a perfect circle between fiat and bitcoin?
