Episode 12: An interview with entrepreneur Miles Paschini from B21.
In this episode Trent Lapinski and Miles Paschini discuss what it takes to build an effective crypto product.
“In bear markets the good people go build products, and in the bull markets people speculate.”
“Once you get to critical mass, theres a lot of friction that exists between the existing banking World, and the emerging crypto payments World.”
“We’re all in, we believe that blockchain is the future. We believe that investing in the alternative asset class of crypto should be a part of people’s future portfolios. We need to get to a point as an industry where we can point to things and say, ‘hey this is a productized example where the blockchain is better’ and it is being used at scale. But, remember you’re building a community.” — Miles Paschini
