Matt Clifford: Co-founder of Entrepreneur First

Gian Volpicelli is a journalist at Wired UK, where he covers the intersection of technology and politics. He’s also the author of the recently published Wired Guide to Cryptocurrency, which you can think of as a beginner’s guide to all things crypto. This conversation is for people who are new to crypto and feared it was too late to learn. We talk through the economics, politics, and sociology of cryptocurrency - and why you should care.

Some of the links we discuss include:
- The Bitcoin white paper
- Vitalik Buterin on legitimacy (see also TiB)
- TiB on Tether
- TiB on central bank digital currencies (CBDCs)
