The whole purpose of cryptocurrency is to move away from the government.

But as the crypto space grows, we are starting to see corruption grow. With 70-80% of all crypto transactions happening in Asia, many of which are the products of bot-farms, artificially generated price inflation is becoming a reason for concern.

On today’s episode of The Bitcoin Crypto Mentor Mastermind show, we are joined by Chris Smith, Howard Marks, and Alex Mehr to discuss the intricacies of the crypto space. Howard is the co-founder of Activision and founder of Start Engine LA, and Alex is the CEO and Founder of Mentorbox and former CEO of Zoosk, an online dating platform with over $1 billion in sales. Tune in to hear these tech gurus and crypto investors discuss the next phase of crypto and apply their insights to your investing strategy!
