Crypto’s Wild Rise and Staggering Fall w/ Zeke Faux #746
Tambah ke Antrean
8 November 2023
Aside from the fact that cryptocurrency has lost its luster in recent years, it also has a host of other problems. First of all there’s the climate issue since crypto requires a ton of energy. Then there’s the trust issue because without trust you don’t have widespread adoption and what good is crypto if there isn’t a critical mass of users? And then on top of that you add the recent developments of Sam Bankman-Fried’s conviction of stealing billions of dollars from customers at FTX. Knowing that money laundering and wire fraud were being committed… that doesn’t build trust! Every transaction seems like a scam waiting to happen, and few folks know this better than our guest Zeke Faux. We’re lucky to be joined by Zeke as he has documented the rise and fall of crypto over the past few years in his new book Number Go Up, which took him everywhere from El Salvador, to Cambodia, and ultimately SBF’s penthouse in the Bahamas.
