After I did deeper research, I got more comfortable with the concepts, but it was the generous community of bitcoiners that ended up selling me on the idea. Enter Demetrick, who takes unsuspecting, normal, everyday people and pitches bitcoin to them. Do they bite? Some will; some won't. This week Host #1 of The Bitcoin Podcast, Marcello, drags his wife into the hot seat. Strap in for another On-Ramping with Dee!

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.
