On this episode of “On the Margin,” Blockworks Co-founder Mike Ippolito is joined by Blockdaemon CEO and founder, Konstantin Richter, to discuss the rise and fall of crypto culture. When sentiment shifts in crypto markets, founders build conviction. Konstantin reminds us of previous cycles and shares why he has never been more optimistic on the future of crypto than right now.

Mike and Konstantin debate the pros and cons of centralization vs. decentralization, and they discuss the outlook for a multichain future.

They also cover:

  • the founding and future of Blockdaemon
  • forming new systems of governance
  • PoW vs PoS
  • and so much more
