Transcript Ep. 305: Crypto 2022 Outlook: Where Will the Markets Go This Year? Plus DeFi and NFTs
Hey, all. Before we begin, a couple of announcements. First, Unchained has a new logo and website. You may have noticed the new podcast thumbnail in your podcast player or on YouTube. This change has been a long time coming, and I think the new redesign looks awesome. As we’ve done on YouTube and on the podcast platforms we’ve also now retired the Unconfirmed brand on the site. So now the Friday shows will also be branded Unchained. Be sure to check out the beautiful new redesign at Unchainedpodcast.com.
Second, my book publishes in less than two months. I’ve been sending it to a few early readers to get blurbs and also for ideas for NFTs, and I just wanted to share with you one early reader’s reaction. This person “absolutely devoured the book in two days”, which is pretty crazy because I wrote a really fat book. They also said they were enthralled, their word, and that they felt the book really brought to life the various players included in it. This is someone who’s been involved in the space for years but was not right in the middle of the action, and they could not put it down. So, if you’re looking for a good read that’s all about crypto preorder The Cryptopians: Idealism, Greed, Lies, and the Making of the First Big Cryptocurrency Craze, today at bit.ly/cryptopians. That’s bit.ly/cryptopians. The book comes out 02/22/22 and so you’ll have it just in time for spring break. Again, preorder The Cryptopians at bit.ly/cryptopians. And now on to the show.
