David Siegal is a self-proclaimed regulatory refugee from the United States. I know he doesn’t feel alone. Today we’re going to talk about the blockchain and the future of money.


  1. What is the future of money?
  2. What is going on in the US Government that is resisting the crypto / blockchain space?
  3. Isn’t the turmoil caused by the SEC in the US because they won’t come out with some clear guidelines? How should crypto/blockchain companies be navigating the SEC?
  4. Personal data
  5. I liken this whole thing to India’s phone problem. It took two years for an average Indian citizen to get a phone line into their home. It was terrible. However, once mobile phone proliferated, the technology was adapted en-masse almost instantly. It’s a true hockey stick. Countries with weak currency will experience the same and I believe we’re already starting to see that.
  6. But if you look at China’s DCEP and while they are now pro-crypto, don’t you see a lot of risk that model as well?

IN 100 words or less, if you could invest a fictional $100,000 in one or two cryptos, what would they be and why?

10% into a reasonable mix of crypto MDAO real-world assets 1/3 bitcoin and 1/3 ETH 

Key Takeaway:

I'm starting a new nonprofit to help people capture, manage, and take advantage of their own personal data.
