💡💬 with Brady Dale - Earn.com Co-founder Lily Liu, from El Salvador to COVID-19
Lily Liu was a co-founder of Earn.com, a startup that paid people for access to their time in bitcoin, when it was acquired by Coinbase. Her career has spanned the U.S. and China and that global perspective sold her on Bitcoin in its early days. She's an angel investor with a unique perspective on Bitcoin's place in the world and where value accrues in crypto. We discuss the news of El Salvador making Bitcoin legal tender, how that fits into her larger Bitcoin and crypto thesis and close on her work bringing personal protective equipment to people who needed it with Operation: Masks.

Suffers from extremely poor quality
Awful sound quality, complete lack of editing, poor choice of hosts who endlessly drone on about the lost mundane topics. There really needs to be a higher bar to admission. Letting anyone ramble on about anything over Skype (?) is a recipe for failure. The worst was two guys who go on about new features on social media, like FB. FB?!?! Who is using FB anymore? If they think they are being cutting edge, they are actually woefully dated. Ive given this about 5 episodes, and if I heard even 5 minutes of total content worth hearing I’d be surprised.
