#49 PAUL DININ- A FIRESIDE CHAT ON CRYPTOCURRENCY

In this episode. Grey brings back Paul Dinin the Bitcoin geek to talk about Cryptocurrency. We covered Blockchain, Bitcoin, Ethereum, shared ledger, peer to peer sharing, encryption and more.

My goal was to cover the very basics and simplify it as much as possible for anyone to understand and I hope I did a good job on that.

We also talked about some unrelated subjects like Tinder, Paul’s childhood, some of which cringe worthy. I hope I don’t embarrass myself.
