I'll be honest, I really had no intention about offering any takes on the cryptocurrency mania but I get asked ALL THE TIME about whether it's worth investing in Bitcoin or any of the other cryptocurrencies that are exploding on the scene. To me investing Bitcoin is no different than investing in any other traditional paper currency....which is highly risky. At the same time, I really haven't had much of a grasp of how Bitcoin operates and what makes it so appealing. So in this podcast, I take a pretty deep dive to figure out how Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies work. So if you are in the same boat, then check out this podcast and let's learn together! NOTE: This episode was recorded prior to a couple of developments that have cast a bit of a cloud on Bitcoin, specifically China's decision to ban Bitcoin Exchanges as well as JP Morgan CEO Jamie Dimon's take that Bitcoin is a fraud, comparing it to the Tulip Mania.
