About the Episode

Nishant Sharma leads Bitmain's international PR and community relations strategy.

Preparing for the interview, I had a lot of questions about the company: What happened with the IPO? Why is there so much FUD and mystery? What is Wu Jihan doing these days?

We covered that but we also had a deep discussion about China.

How does money work there? Does anti-Chinese propaganda affect our understanding of bitcoin usage and sentiment in China?

And of course, we had to talk about Bitcoin Cash. Why did some call it the "Chinese Bitcoin"?

Nishant eloquently weaves in stories to make it entertaining.

This episode is mandatory listening for anyone who wants a deeper understanding of Bitcoin in China.
