There are few things as old as financial catastrophe, except maybe finance. But in the latest fiscal meltdown in Greece, people started asking questions about whether newer technology — bitcoin and the underlying blockchain — could help. One of those was Wall Street Journal columnist Christopher Mims.
In this episode of the pod, Mims and Coinbase CEO and co-founder Brian Armstrong talk about the current state and future possibility of bitcoin and the bitcoin blockchain. When it comes to Greece — or the next financial snafu — Armstrong and Mims think there is potential for bitcoin to help, but some education and UI mainstreaming needs to happen first.
