I was invited to speak at the Bitcoin for Advisors conference produced by Coindesk as a member of the FA Advisory Board. My main message as a panelist: Don't wait.
In this wide-ranging conversation, Andy Edstrom and I tackle some of the major questions surrounding Bitcoin, including "Why Buy Bitcoin?"
Andrew M. Bailey discusses defining and redefining what money is for and what/how much people need to be happy.
Justin Castelli on why advisors need to learn about Bitcoin and crypto even if they don't think it's right for their clients.
Bradley Rettler discusses if Bitcoin can make people happier and why that question is key to appreciating its potential value.
Chris King of Eaglebrook Advisors discusses a platform that greatly simplifies the process of getting your clients into crypto.
CoinDesk's David Z. Morris discusses how Bitcoin's symbols and signifiers are revealing and challenging our built-in assumptions about money.
Economist Steve Horwitz and financial advisor Jeremy Keil discuss Bitcoin's political and economic potential and limitations.
Dan Eyre, co-founder of Blockchange, discusses how a new generation of tools is making it much easier for financial advisors to buy, sell, and manage digital assets for clients.
Craig Warmke and I discuss Bitcoin, philosophy, fiscal policy, economics, computer science, game theory, and the meaning of money.
