That podcast featured Greg Gerber, who spoke about some of the things that are useful to know about Bitcoin, Ethereum, and other digital currencies.
The response to that podcast was fantastic, and we thought we would follow up on the topic by inviting our longtime friend, and cryptocurrency enthusiast, Taylor Pearson back on to the show.
Taylor’s recent article “Why Is Bitcoin Valuable” was recently featured on the front page of Hacker News.
On today’s show, Taylor joins us to talk about that article, and to share his insights on the philosophy behind this new technological movement.
This episode isn’t all philosophical, though. Taylor also shares some great tips about how you can dip your toes into the crypto space, if you are so inclined.
Listen to this week’s show and learn:
- What makes cryptocurrency different from other money platforms that have existed online. (2:35)
- Why the learning curve for cryptocurrencies can be steep. (7:44)
- Some of the opportunities that Taylor sees in the future for small business owners in the cryptocurrency space. (12:56)
- How to get started purchasing cryptocurrency. (23:46)
- How turmoil in your personal life can impact your productivity. (42:22)
