About the Hosts
Blake’s interest in cryptocurrencies was sparked in early 2017 when a friend sent him his first bit of Bitcoin on a beach in Thailand. Like most, he then went down the crypto rabbit hole, looking for ways to contribute to the space.
He has been with Bitcoin.com as Ecommerce Manager since February 2018 and is fully focused on bringing fresh products and exciting services to the Bitcoin.com store
Matt Aaron has been podcasting since 2013, when he launched the Food Startups Podcast.
He recently found a second love in cryptocurrency and blockchain and hasn't looked back.
His first major investment into cryptocurrency was the money he made betting on (but not voting for) that Donald Trump would win the 2016 election.
Matt believes that public blockchains and cryptocurrencies are the solution to the many problems exposed of the current banking system in the 2008 financial crisis.
