About BTC Podcasting

BTC Podcasting is a Bitcoin for Fairness project, built with the support of GetAlby on the Castopod platform.

BTC Podcasting enables Bitcoiners globally to host their podcast without subscription fees and at the same time receive satoshis from the listeners without the need to run their own Lightning node.

Bitcoin for Fairness aims to enable Bitcoiners to host Bitcoin-only podcasts in their local languages to foster communities on the ground and spread Bitcoin self-custody education. Especially in areas where Internet access is expensive and slow, audio content is perfectly suited to reach a wide audience. The goal is to enable individuals, who can’t afford a monthly subscription fee of min. 10 USD per month, to host their Bitcoin podcast for free. At the same time the podcasters don’t need to run their own Lightning node to receive satoshis from their listeners, which is the case for most other hosting possibilities.

Optionally one can add a location to each episode from which a map is derived, where all episodes and their respective locations / countries are visible.

BTC Podcasting let’s you add chapters with images or links to episodes, that listeners can see in apps like Breez. You can upload a transcript, create soundbites and video clips from your audio. Here is an example of an episode with chapters and associated images and links. For more information visit our documentation for podcasters.

The Lightning Network makes it possible to send and receive bitcoin micropayments. Connecting podcasting and bitcoin enables new income streams for content creators and podcasters. Value4Value is a concept where content is free, but listeners are encouraged to send an amount of their choice to the creator so that the podcast can stay free from advertisements.
