Vanderboogie ,

Love Roy. Some guests need to do more research.

Word of caution, when asking a guest about crypto currency please make sure they are educated on the topic. “Richard” clearly is not educated on the topic of crypto currencies, as evident by his “some guy in China” invented it, and “when China or Russia hack the blockchain” comments.
