This episode is sponsored by NYDIG. Today’s episode is nominally about Worldcoin. The project launched this week with ambitions to airdrop a new cryptocurrency on everyone in the world. To do so, it’s using biometric eye scanning to identify people and the entire cryptosphere – bitcoiners, ethereans and beyond – are sort of not having it. NLW gives the context and background of Silicon Valley’s history with bitcoin and crypto in order to help explain the reaction to Worldcoin. Featuring Dan Held “Why Silicon Valley Doesn’t Get Bitcoin.” NYDIG, the institutional-grade platform for bitcoin, is making it possible for thousands of banks who have trusted relationships with hundreds of millions of customers, to offer Bitcoin.
