Crypto

Interesting conversation about the current economic situation with Jeremy Siegel. Was very shocked to hear him say that he thought cryptocurrencies are the answer to the problems with our payment system. I was even more shocked to hear bitcoin because a store of value because it is not. Great minds with taking bitcoin seriously is shocking for such a brilliant people.
