THis has been one of my of my favorite shows. I was not happy with all the changes recently but I said what I wanted. The hangouts were kinda a sad affair in my opinion. Not a lot of positive to be had by most.
Now I feel like things have changed. I really believe we're only going up from here and I'm not even really talking about market cap! If I didn't believe in this, I would have left. So give this a listen and I think you will be pleased.https://soundcloud.com/beyond-bitcoin-hangouts/beyond-bitcoin-dan-talks-about-new-marketing-2014-11-07
