Ivan Nuwagaba ,

Excellent Work!

Hey Frederick
Thank you for bringing to us this great knowledge through the eclectic mix of guests you interview on this podcast. I really enjoy not only the subject that is blockchain, but the excellent questions you ask the guests. Bravo!

Useful source of information when getting to know blockchain for the first time.

Let me qualify by first saying that I have only listened to episode one which involves an interview with Roger Ver on Bitcoin. The shows format is good because it is very useful when learning about this stuff to get it from the people who are closest to it. In this episode the expert was a trained programmer and economist, and a long time entrepreneur in the crypto industry. I learned many things that expanded what I know about crypto currencies but I was also frustrated at the overconfidence from Mr. Ver bordering on hubris. This was especially poignant when disparaging rivals and selling his own views as absolutes. Also quite frustrating is the zealousness of belief that many in this industry have about its potential to change society.
TLDR: useful but will keep looking around for more balanced content on blockchain.

OTA eh ,

No depth just ad

Never provides any depth to the one sentence answers other than he covers it in his courses. EX “People who support bitcoin mining say that the value is worth the energy cost” but no justification.
