Transcript Ep. 307: Can Crypto Be a Force in the Midterms? Yes, Say Kristin Smith and Jake Chervinsky
Hi, all. As you know, my book, The Cryptopians, comes out February 22. I wanted to share a blurb that Jeff John Roberts, the executive editor of Decrypt and author of Kings of Crypto, wrote about it. Jeff said, the most authoritative account yet of Ethereum. Laura Shin is deeply sourced in the crypto world and this is reflected on every page. The Cryptopians also casts new light on Vitalik Buterin, showing the human side of Ethereum’s founding genius as never before.
If that intrigues you, then preorder The Cryptopians, Idealism, Greed, Lies, and the Making of the First Big Cryptocurrency Craze today at bit.ly/cryptopians. And again, the book comes out February 22, and you can preorder it at bit.ly/cryptopians.
