    Hey Thomas another good show

    Hey one thing, I don’t really understand this idea of playing a bunch of old episodes for hours on end. If we wanted to watch all old news, etc. we could go get it… I assume most of it anyway. It’s hard enough to try to keep up with all the content that’s new coming in let alone watch hours of old content.

    Anyway no harm I guess because I just don’t need to watch it (though others may like it). I just wanted to offer some feedback in case it helps at all. You know more about your strategy than me so hopefully you’re on the something somewhere… And it probably doesn’t hurt to try and pursue different things and see what sticks. You should be able to quickly gauge engagement from watch watch numbers and thumns up/thumbs down metrics and make your decision from there

    As always, my best to you and your channel, definitely one of my all-time favorites… Not just the channel, but you!

    I share your stuff, Tone's and Vortex's show all the time on Steemit — the platform just crossed 600k accts y-day and all the new people coming need decent resources like the WCN. I am glad you are clearly feeling better Thomas.

    When i began to study bitcoin it was jihanwu, the bad guy who created bcash to attack btc, then some people who tried the same with 2x scam, these are bad actors, enemies of bitcoin. Get them out of business! Coinbase wants to trade shitcoins and make money, scaling to them is bad, ruins their task.

    Legitimate BTC transactions from CoinBase are "spam"? Another alternative is, they could simply delist BTC; that would free up the mempool. Problem solved! lol NO ONE is using SegWit.

    better not be attacking and spreading FUD too much….
    we are in the ultimate economic free market ever concieved of with cryptos so Coinbase's expenses should go up and the market should decide.
    everything with the core Fanboys is "attack" and "boycott" and it's not going unnoticed in the SJW political climate of western society…..
