If you are a long-term Bitcoiner, you will know the name Tuur Demeester. In researching the interview, I read every Medium post he had written from his bullish position on Bitcoin to his bearish stance on Ethereum. As an economist and investor Tuur's knowledge and experience make for a great interview and we discuss:

  • The looming debt crisis

  • Bitcoin cycles

  • Government-issued cryptocurrencies

  • Ethereum’s scaling issues

  • Central banks for Bitcoin

As well as talking about Crypto we discuss his Medium Post "The day I decided to break from my parents", a personal story about his decision to separate himself from his parents.
