This new podcast series is focused on lifting the veil on the business side of Bitcoin.
The Biz features John Carvalho interviewing Bitcoin professionals about their valuable experiences as founders, product designers, lawyers, and entrepreneurs building the Bitcoin products of tomorrow.

Each episode is locked behind a“crowdwall”and will become incrementally available as BTC payments are made.
Once the full goal for an episode is reached, each episode will be unlocked publicly for everyone, and distributed to popular podcast platforms for free.
Give the gift of BTC
50% of all proceeds for the first season of The Biz will be donated to a cause chosen by each guest.

The third episode of The Biz with John Carvalho has been unlocked! In this episode, John hosts veteran mining expert and expert witness, Kristy-Leigh Minehan.
This interview covers rare topics about early Bitcoin mining players like Avalon, creators of the first ever ASIC mining machine, and Friedcat from ASICMINER, the first mass-produced Bitcoin ASIC manufacturer.
Kristy gives insight on the current mining industry and what mining investors should expect if trying to launch a new farm, including starting budgets and more. Kristy also takes the time to contrast the Bitcoin and altcoin mining worlds, giving examples of how they differ.
