In this episode Trent Lapinski interviews Karim Sabba, French entrepreneur and founder of Paris Blockchain Week.

"I jumped into this new ecosystem where I saw returns that I had never seen in my life. And that was what caught me in. That was the bait, and it was a good bait. But afterwards I started to dive into all those projects and I remember, I don't want to name it because my apprehension of this was a bit weird, but basically I saw this project and for a long time I thought it was a scam, and maybe it is, but still they showed that you can technically be able to open bank accounts for unbanked people without them having to read or be tech-savvy. And that was my 'aha!' moment." - Karim Sabba
