Episode 13: Everything Crypto

Matt Werner joins me in a conversation about cryptocurrency. Matt recently worked as an Engineering Manager at Coinbase and shares a wealth of knowledge on cryptocurrency. We talk about different coins, how to vet a coin to find out if it’s good, and interesting applications of ERC20. Matt shares what it was like to be riding the bull run of 2017 in the industry, how bitcoin miners are incentivized to find better sources of energy, and how cryptocurrency can insulate people from the volatility of their national currency.
