Ep. 1 | From Orthodox Judaism to Federal Prison and Beyond, the Redemptive Tale of Charlie Shrem

What Makes A Man

In Episode 1 of What Makes A Man, I sit down with notorious Bitcoin entrepreneur Charlie Shrem. Together we trace through his journey: from breaking away from a strict Jewish community in Brooklyn, founding the first venture-backed Bitcoin startup, becoming a convicted felon, and his efforts to move beyond just crypto. Join us as we discuss the challenges of severing bonds with family, rebelling against the government, reconciliation, love, and how they all tie into Charlie’s path to manhood.

[Audio original en Inglés] Hola comunidad criptohispana, bienvenidos al séptimo episodio de la tercera temporada [E32 en total] donde tuvimos la participación de un histórico del ecosistema bitcoiner global, el Sr. Charlie Shrem, quién junto a otro histórico del ecosistema bitcoiner Latinoamericano, el Sr. Guillermo Torrealba, conversaron con nuestros criptohispanos para adentrarnos en los pensamientos iniciales de bitcoin, analizar qué ha cambiado, si los actores del ecosistema son los mismos, o no, y sobre todo conocer sus perspectivas ante el ingreso de los institucionales a bitcoin. En este episodio pudimos hablar sobre los cambios en la narrativa de bitcoin, la experiencia de Charlie, y sobre todo lo que fue pasar por uno de los momentos más difíciles de su vida con solo 22 años, haber pasado por la cárcel.

Charlie Shrem: The Untold Story of a Bitcoin Pioneer and Renegade

Epicenter - Learn about Crypto, Blockchain, Ethereum, Bitcoin and Distributed Technologies

Charlie Shrem became fascinated with Bitcoin in 2011 but grew frustrated with the hassle of buying it from the leading exchange at the time, Mt. Gox. To make the process faster and more convenient, Charlie created BitInstant in 2012. BitInstant quickly grew and by 2013 became responsible for processing a third of all Bitcoin transactions. This was with the help of Roger Ver and the Winklevoss twins, who were his seed investors, and Erik Voorhees, who led their marketing efforts. The success of BitInstant was short-lived. In a time where Bitcoin's primary applications were price speculation and buying things on the Silk Road, Charlie spent time in prison after a lack of customer due-diligence attracted the attention of the law enforcement. Our conversation with Charlie recounts the Bitcoin industry at its beginning, his time in prison, and what he is doing now that he's able to continue his work as a Bitcoin advocate.Topics covered in this episode:Learning of Bitcoin on IRC in 2011The Bitcoin community in the early daysCollaborating with competitors to grow the ecosystemFrustration with Bitcoin infrastructure in 2011Why Charlie decided to create BitInstantMeeting Roger Ver, Erik Voorhees, and the Winklevoss TwinsCharlie’s time in prison and its effect on his personal lifePodcasting and daily life after prisonEpisode links: Untold Stories WebsiteUntold Stories on Apple PodcastsBitcoin Billionaires: A True Story of Genius, Betrayal, and RedemptionCharlie and Best Selling Author Ben Mezrich Discuss Bitcoin's History60 Minutes Podcast - Sunday, May 19, 2019 with Charlie ShremCrypto.IQCharlie Shrem on TwitterSponsors: Status: A multi-purpose communication tool that combines a peer-to-peer messenger, secure crypto wallet, and web3 browser - https://status.im/Cosmos: Compete to win 100,000 ATOM by building and running Cosmos Zones - https://cosmos.network/goz/Pepo: Meet the people shaping the crypto movement - https://pepo.com/epicenterThis episode is hosted by Sebastien Couture & Sunny Aggarwal.
