Let’s Talk Bitcoin Network Adds ‘The Blockcrunch’

The Let’s Talk Bitcoin Network (LTBN), a collection of podcasts dedicated to cryptocurrency and blockchain technology, has added Jason Choi’s “The Blockcrunch” to its roster.

Per LTBN:

Hosted by crypto researcher Jason Choi, The Blockcrunch is a podcast targeting investors, builders, and people who are interested in pursuing a career in the crypto space.

Currently, many existing podcasts in the blockchain space are recorded conversations lasting 50-90 minutes, which far exceed the length of the average work commute. For Blockcrunch, we decided to capture the most important ideas championed by prominent founders and investors within 20 minutes, targeting busier people on crunch time (pun intended).

Each episode will focus on one theme specific to the interviewee’s expertise, which include:

  • What are the best ways to grow the blockchain ecosystem (ICOs, venture capital, index funds, or startup accelerators)?
  • What are some frameworks we can use in evaluating the value of cryptoassets?
  • What are the challenges in scaling decentralized exchanges, and are they the future?
  • How can we leverage blockchain as a way to achieve financial inclusion and social impact?

Experienced venture capitalists, fund managers, accelerator operators, as well as blockchain builders will be answering these questions on the podcast.

For the latest episode, Choi was joined by Tom Shaughnessy, founder of 51percent Crypto Research. You can listen to and download the episode here.
