Cryptocurrency, Bitcoin, Johnston discussed on Download This Show


Our in studio with ride Johnston and taking Jones mock Fidelis my name and changing the tone in Tyler. Cryptocurrency, stay with me. It's boring. Confusing. But today, I have cryptocurrency direct from the land of ho- quotes. There is I strange new coin that is a Harry Potter themed cryptocurrency, and I couldn't talk about. Introduced me to green take the Shaw's. Unlike some other, let's say colorful, cryptocurrencies like selfie coin and pizza coin. The actually seems to be some good potentially associated with grain.
