Bitcoin never ever stops. Neither does Bitcoin.com.
Every as soon as in a while, it is necessary to stop; to breathe and celebrate a turning point.

It’s been a bearish year to state the least.
However there is a bright side to the price corrections.
The bear market allows time for knowing and building.
We have put down the structures for a podcast network moving forward. It is the go-to channel to connect with Bitcoin novices and specialists alike.
We reside in a “linked” world with attention more fragmented than ever. Audio has an advantage over print and video: one can listen to a podcast while they are doing something else.
You may ask, why a podcast network and not simply one show? A one size fits all podcast is too limiting for a vibrant, worldwide movement. So we are now at four and growing.
