    Andy Edstrom: Why Buy Bitcoin? Investing Today in the Money of Tomorrow

    Andy Edstrom: Why Buy Bitcoin? Investing Today in the Money of Tomorrow

    My guest today is Andy Edstrom from Los Angeles. Andy spent 17 years in the investment world on Wall Street, working for Goldman Sachs and is now a wealth manager at his familiy’s firm West Cap Group. In the course of his consulting work, more and more people asked him about Bitcoin, that’s why he wrote a book about it called “Why Buy Bitcoin – Investing Today in the Money of Tomorrow“. Andy Edstrom recently took on the role of “Head of Institutional at Swan Bitcoin” and as always this interview is no financial advice, please do your own research.

    “The banking industry has paid more penalties to regulators than any other industry and by a wide margin, right? It’s I think the figure in the book I have is something like $300 billion in fines paid within the last, I don’t know, a couple of decades, this is a staggering number.” – Andy Edstrom

    Our topics:

    The problem with money
    Central banks manipulating money
    Central banks manipulating money
    Paper claims against Bitcoin
    Price prediction for Bitcoin
    Can Bitcoin fall to Zero
    What nobody is talking about in Bitcoin

    Elena Tonoyan, LocalBitcoins COO: Bitcoin Provides Financial Inclusion and Will Grow

    Elena Tonoyan, LocalBitcoins COO: Bitcoin Provides Financial Inclusion and Will Grow

    Joining me is Elena Tonoyan, she is the Chief Operating Officer at LocalBitcoins, the peer to peer bitcoin exchange that was founded as early as in 2012. We are looking into the history of LocalBitcoins, it’s growth, and optimistic outlook for the years to come. You will also learn about the values and usecases of Bitcoin that Elena finds important, because they solve real problems and have a positive impact on peoples lives.

    Our topics:

    history and growth of LocalBitcoins
    financial inclusion esp. for women
    bitcoin demand in Africa, India, Latin America
    supporting altcoins
    fraud in trading
    integration of the Lightning network
    the future of Bitcoin
    Expanding business
    P2P exchanges vs. centralized exchanges

    “Bitcoin provides financial inclusion. It is solving real world problems for many under-banked people across the globe, people who have limited access to a modern economy and empowering women is another big aspect for me. There are unfortunately still countries where women don’t have free access they are not allowed to open bank accounts without permission of, for example, a family member. And Bitcoin is obviously solving that problem. And I’m personally very happy about that.” – Elena Tonoyan

    “I’m sure that during the coming years and decades, we will see several booms and busts in Bitcoin. However, what is important and what we believe is that the Bitcoin usage and adoption will continue to increase til unforeseeable future.” – Elena Tonoyan

    Gigi: Bitcoin From Speculative Asset to Savings Technology

    My guest today is Gigi a software developer and computer scientist. Gigi wrote "21Lessons", a book in which he shares his learnings from falling down the Bitcoin rabbit hole. Two years ago he quit his job and started to work solely in the Bitcoin space.

    "Bitcoin already has all three functions of money. It is a store of value, medium of exchange and unit of account. It's just not evenly distributed yet." - Gigi

    "As I see Bitcoin evolve, I think it will be a global settlement layer for something approximating central banks. And since it's obviously superior to gold and every other form of money we had, like Bitcoin is by far the best money we ever had." - Gigi

    Our topics include:

    Building reputation in the Bitcoin space
    All mistakes he made
    How to educate people about Bitcoin
    The different entry points to Bitcoin
    Explaining scarcity
    The three functions of money
    Bitcoinization will happen in 10 years
    Lightning Network adoption and usability
    Why Bitcoin does not “move fast and break things”
    Current technical developments in Bitcoin
    Messaging on top of Bitcoin
