About the Episode

A dedicated full stack programmer, Chris Troutner adds value to Bitcoin.com and the Bitcoin Cash ecosystem. We talk about why cryptocurrency in important to him.

Related to economic freedom is his personal freedom in the natural world. Living on a sailboat, a paragraph from his blog says a lot:

I’m getting ready to install 1000 watts of solar panels in order to power a chest freezer. I’m building a micro-root cellar to protect homemade wine and canned goods from both the summer heat and the winter freeze. And I’m building out a grid of self-watering garden beds. This summer I’ll be experimenting with cob and building a 1/6th scale model of a wood-fired, five-person hot tub. I’m looking forward to sharing all of it here on the blog.

An inspiring conversation with a true renaissance man.
