I do think it goes to show that there definitely is some level of manipulation or people trying to manipulate the markets for their own benefit, and a lot of times at detriment to you as an individual. It is definitely something you want to think about if you are investing in the Crypto markets.
— Robert Paone

Robert Paone, aka @crypto_bobby, is one of the leading personalities in the world of Crypto YouTubers. Robert has built a significant following with his regular videos discussing the market.

Robert invited me out to Brooklyn to meet with the Airswap team, as he is now an advisor there. Having been a follower and admirer of his content for a while, I also wanted to interview him.

The day I arrived an article was released on steemit by @CryptoMedicated, highlighting a case of collusion and conspiracy to manipulate the price action of Crypto assets by some prominent Twitter traders. Rob and I agreed this is something which we would like to talk about, but we also discuss a number of other things such Crypto platforms, Vitalik Buterin's boycott of the Consensus conference and Robert's plans for the future.
