Episode #12 The Lovely Corrine :)

Category : Uncategorized

Community Announcement: No marriages were destroyed in the making of this recording.

This episode we talk with “The Lovely Corrine” a Sex Worker / Escort who uses and promotes bitcoin to her clients. Corrine takes us into her world and talks freely about a number of aspects of her industry, social, legal, and of course, commercial. We learn about how Corrine is educating her clients in the use of bitcoin to enable private, safe transactions. We also touch on the astounding case where the major credit card companies have withdrawn their merchant services from the classified advertising publication, BackPage, which is where many sex workers publicise their services. Thank you financial establishment, for creating yet another opportunity for crypto currencies!

Oh, and for all those wondering, yes, Corrine IS lovely and she’s also smart, tech-savvy, a strong advocate for privacy, and an all-round damn nice person.

CORRECTION: In this episode, we incorrectly report than the Australian Prime Minister, Malcolm Turnbull purchased shares in BitcoinGroup at a public event. This is incorrect, Mr Turnbull demonstrated a mobile application for purchasing shares and used Bitcoin Group for demonstration purposes only.

Hosts: Dale Dickens, Peter Robertson, Warwick Greville

A big thanks to Leo Treasure for editing and adding the music for the show.
