In the latest episode of Blockworks’ podcast “Empire,” Jason Yanowitz, Blockworks co-founder, talked to Bill Barhydt, CEO of Abra, a digital cash payments app.

Jason and Bill talked about Bill’s time working for the CIA and NASA, as well as his role getting banks online through Netscape, and what is looks like to come out of a debt cycle.

On “Empire,” once a week, Jason interviews individuals that have built the crypto industry to talk about their struggles, bold moves and tough decisions. For any NPR or Guy Raz fans out there, you can think of “Empire” like a “How I Built This” for the bitcoin and crypto industry.

Episodes are released every Thursday morning.
