The first season of COINS is in the books and it has been a fantastic run! The podcast received over 500,000 views just days after the last episode went live on Monday, Sept. 20. All episodes can be found here.
The COINS podcast launched Aug. 19 with Episode 1: “The War.” Each episode documents the history of Bitcoin and blockchain technology — from the first grumblings with government-controlled fiat-backed currency to the very latest rounds of dips and climbs for crypto through the COVID-19 pandemic.
The first season of COINS tells the story of the pioneers of the cypherpunk movement to the trillion-dollar industry that has since grown from it. COINS provides the untold story of crypto from the people living it.
“Our goal is to bring the next billion people to crypto by making these stories accessible to a general audience and investing in a world-class production team,” said host of the series and MouseBelt COO Patrick McLain.
Some of the biggest names in crypto and blockchain gave their thoughts on the history and formation of the current blockchain ecosystem holding about $2 trillion in value throughout.
