Dan Held, growth lead at Kraken, is well known for his Bitcoin supercycle thesis, the belief that price will continue to rise exponentially with increasingly smaller corrections. In addition to Bitcoin’s price action, the fundamentals are looking stronger than ever as institutions enter the space, worldwide adoption accelerates, and infrastructure is solidified. If Dan is right, we could possibly see Bitcoin reach a billion users and be worth hundreds of thousands of dollars in the near future.Dan Held: https://twitter.com/danheld--Harmony:Build on Harmony, run on all chains.Harmony is your open platform for assets, collectibles, identity, governance.

“Bitcoin hodlers across the world I think only number probably 100-200 million, which is awesome, that’s incredible that we’re in the hundreds of millions era of bitcoin hodlers, but I think the real game begins at a billion, and we’re getting close.”— Dan HeldLocation: RemotelyDate: Wednesday 4th AugustCompany: KrakenRole: Growth LeadEl Salvador made history by becoming the first country to embrace Bitcoin as legal tender. This bold step to adopt Bitcoin empowers Salvadorians and utilises the network's powerful technology to build a better financial future for the country. While nation-states adopting Bitcoin has been talked about for a long time amongst bitcoiners, El Salvador found itself in a unique position. The country is a dollarised nation with an incredibly popular leader. As such, President Nayib Bukele passed the Bitcoin Law with ease, but the hard part is still to come.On September 7th, all eyes will be on El Salvador. So will this bold move be a catalyst for prosperity? And will other nations follow suit?In this interview, I talk to Dan Held, the Growth Lead at Kraken. We discuss hyperbitcoinisation, El Salvador adopting Bitcoin, living on a personal Bitcoin standard and the regulatory game theory of Bitcoin adoption.

“Bitcoin grows more antifragile with these sorts of events... they’re going to lose influence pretty fast, and pretty soon, the market doesn’t care what they have to say.”— Dan HeldLocation: ChicagoDate: Wednesday 26th MayProject: KrakenRole: Growth LeadWhen Elon Musk tweeted that Tesla had "suspended vehicle purchases using Bitcoin" due to their concerns "about the rapidly increasing use of fossil fuels for Bitcoin mining and transactions", the market went into freefall, dropping from around $58k to just below $30k in just a few days.Since then, the market has reacted whenever Musk tweets. On Monday, he stated that he had "Spoke with North American Bitcoin miners" in a meeting set up by Michael Saylor and that "they committed to publish current & planned renewable usage & to ask miners WW to do so. Potentially promising." While this may seem like positive news, behind-closed-door meetings are not something that bitcoiners are fans of. The meeting was somewhat reminiscent of the New York Agreement. The future of Bitcoin should be decided by the consensus of the entire network, not a small, wealthy and hugely influential committee. Some feel that appeasing one billionaire is a dangerous precedent to set.Are we heading down a slippery slope? And what will this mean for Bitcoin?In this interview, I talk to Dan Held, the Growth Lead at Kraken. We discuss the concept of leaders in Bitcoin, antifragility, and dispel some FUD.This episode’s sponsors:Gemini - Buy Bitcoin instantlyBlockFi - The future of Bitcoin financial servicesSportsbet.io - Online sportsbook & casino that accepts BitcoinCasa - The leading provider of Bitcoin multisig key security.Exodus - The world's leading Desktop, Mobile and Hardware crypto wallets.Ledger - State of the art Bitcoin hardware wallet-----WBD354 - Show Notes-----If you enjoy The What Bitcoin Did Podcast you can help support the show by doing the following:Become a Patron and get access to shows early or help contributeMake a tip:Bitcoin: 3FiC6w7eb3dkcaNHMAnj39ANTAkv8Ufi2SQR Codes: BitcoinIf you do send a tip then please email me so that I can say thank youSubscribe on iTunes | Spotify | Stitcher | SoundCloud | YouTube | Deezer | TuneIn | RSS FeedLeave a review on iTunesShare the show and episodes with your friends and familySubscribe to the newsletter on my websiteFollow me on Twitter Personal | Twitter Podcast | Instagram | Medium | YouTubeIf you are interested in sponsoring the show, you can read more about that here or please feel free to drop me an email to discuss options.
