Dan and Ian have spoken about cryptocurrencies before, and certainly a divisive topic among the listeners of this show.

But the fact is that cryptocurrencies aren’t going away. If you’re interested in your financial future, understanding the nature of markets and how to interpret them, this episode is for you because we’ve invited our friend Taylor Pearson back to the show to talk about a recent article he wrote called The State of Bitcoin.

On today’s podcast, Taylor shares his thoughts on how cryptocurrencies essentially differ from other forms of investment, how to distinguish hype from opportunity, and why the “Bitcoin backlash” is happening.

    Taylor! Dan lobbed you up a tasty talking point and you didn’t bite, “If everyone starts buying their latès with Bitcoin…”. Sorry but I have to!

    What are your thoughts about Core’s insistence on second layer solutions?

    Do you think Bitcoin could have scaled with Moore’s Law the way Satoshi intended?

    Do you think Core is governed by parties with conflicting interests?

    A lot there I know, but you get the gist ;) Great pod.

  • So true Dan and Ian; Bitcoin and crypto are not going anywhere. I figure as leaders in this area get more clear and confident you will see less greed, desperation and wildness, greater stability, and crypto will be more and more accepted. So much seems dependent on these leaders not being hellbent on fighting governments and policies. Far better to be FOR crypto versus AGAINST governments, etc.
