In this conversation, we discuss macroeconomics, the Federal Reserve, monetary policy, Bitcoin as a reserve asset in corporate treasuries, decentralization, and a number of new products and features that Abra has launched recently.
Our second sponsor is Choice, a new self-directed IRA product that I'm really excited about. If you are listening to this, you are likely part of the 7.1 million bitcoin owners who have retirement accounts with dollars in them, but not bitcoin. I was in that situation too. Now you can actually buy real Bitcoin in your retirement account. I'm talking about owning your private keys and using tax-advantaged dollars to do it too. Absolute game changer. https://www.retirewithchoice.com/pomp
