It’s been a massive fortnight in the Crypto space, so we’ve got a jam-packed episode to keep with the trend. We cover Catalan, Crypto FUD, Civic, ICO use cases, market manipulations, Coingecko and Monetha. We also dig deep into buying crypto, wallets and exchanges in our latest Blockchain Basics segment.

On top of a surprise call from Jordan Cronje in Venezuela, we also chat to Dan Dan the ICO man –  the latest addition to the…high-calibre FOMO Show cast.

***Note for those familiar with Crypto – you may want to skip the Blockchain Basics segment. We’ve put timestamps in the show notes if you do wish to skip ahead.***
