This week Host #1 of The Bitcoin Podcast, Marcello, drags his wife into the hot seat. Strap in for another On-Ramping with Dee!

Wefunder’s BitPay integration allows ANYONE from cryptocurrency enthusiasts to mainstream investors to support companies using bitcoin, in full SEC compliance supported by Title III of the JOBS Act. The JOBS Act, passed earlier this year, has updated national securities laws to recognize modern modes of online capital raising and Airbitz is the first blockchain-focused company to take advantage of this. Airbitz, Bitcoin wallet provider and creator of the Edge Security SDK for decentralized apps, is announcing the launch of its equity crowdfunding campaign and CEO Paul Puey comes back to the show (for the first time in 90 episodes, mind you) to talk shop.

Now equipped with a new white-paper, we revisit Plutus to see what they're up too. Don’t wait for merchants to accept bitcoin, use Plutus.it sucka!!
