Every crypto has a unique angle.

And it is our job as investors to predict whether or not that angle will be valuable in the future. To accurately do this requires understanding both the micro and macro trends. And when it comes to cryptocurrency, there is no greater macro trend than the fact that Bitcoin and other crypto assets will eventually take over all currency.

That is why on today’s episode of The Bitcoin Crypto Mentor Mastermind show, we are joined by Shawn Owen, Cofounder of SALT. SALT is a lending platform that allows you to borrow money against your crypto assets. It is the only platform of its kind and currently has over $1 billion in demand. Tune in to hear Shawn’s insights on the crypto landscape.

“Every state requires a different lending license. So we follow all applicable laws before lending to anyone.” - Shawn Owen
