Many of today’s unicorn crypto companies started as a dream — entrepreneurs who took a leap of faith on a small internet phenomenon called Bitcoin. 

Throughout my time in this space, I’ve been fortunate enough to meet hundreds of founders building this new financial system. Everyday, we hear the announcements, the fund raises, and the product launches.

But I wanted to hear the real stories – the stories that usually aren’t publicly shared.

On Empire, I’ll reveal the personal struggles, bold moves, and tough decisions that these individuals have gone through to build this new industry. 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.

Empire launches on Thursday, March 4th, 2021.

Episodes will be released every Thursday morning. Early guests include Muneeb Ali of Blockstack, Mike Belshe of BitGo, Bobby Ong of CoinGecko, and Joe Lubin of ConsenSys.

Subscribe to Empire today on Apple or Spotify. Watch the episode on YouTube.
