The world of cryptocurrency just doesn't seem to stop changing. With over 5000 different cryptocoins in circulation, new digital units of value need to stand out from the crowd in order to generate any sort of traction.

In this week's show, we take a look at the resurgent Dogecoin (and learn how to pronounce it) and try to work out if Chia is really a "green" cryptocurrency. There's also a look at The Internet Computer, a new approach to decentralizing the internet.
