Bitcoin is better than Gold with Ari Paul, CIO of BlockTower Capital

The Wolf Of All Streets

One of crypto’s most trusted voices of reason, Ari Paul, is gifted with the ability to stay neutral and logical while many others swing wildly between euphoria and depression. Although Paul remains optimistic towards Bitcoin, he understands that it fundamentally, and existentially, still has some growing to do as it morphs into the ultra-secure network many believe it will become. Furthermore, he knows that if grandma can't easily navigate and trust the system, it isn't truly ready for the masses. The truth isn't always easy to hear, but in this episode, Paul offers one of the most holistic and logical views regarding Bitcoin and the crypto space.Follow Ari Paul: https://twitter.com/AriDavidPaulIn this episode, Melker and Paul discuss a range of topics including:The Coinbase listing breakdownExposure to exchange tokensBitcoin’s existential riskBillion-dollar slippageBull market phenomenaTrusting grandma with cryptoCoordinated Bitcoin attacksFragmented crypto liquidityUniswap rug pullsThe natural trend towards consolidationLedgers in a safety deposit box----NEXOTry Nexo’s full-suite, instant crypto banking service, featuring: Savings accounts with up to 12% interest on crypto, stablecoins & fiat, Flexible crypto-backed credit lines at just 5.9% APR, An exchange with 75+ crypto and fiat pairs and best-price guarantee, All this and more wrapped up in a single Nexo Wallet.
