As many of us know, the blockchain and cryptocurrency space develops at hyper-speed. Most books are outdated as soon as they hit the shelves and traditional education is years behind in this particular space. And so, the best way to keep up to date (or to get started) with bitcoin, blockchain and crypto, is to find a podcast that you enjoy. But with so much content out there, how do you know what to invest your time into? To help make the choice easier, I asked ‘Crypto Twitter’ to share their favorites.
The following are 10 of the most recommended crypto podcasts today (in no particular order).
Hash Power by Patrick O’Shaughnessy
An oldie but goodie, the first 3 episodes do a marvelous job in laying the groundwork for the technical and theoretical understanding of blockchain technology. A must listen for all newbs.
Bitcoin Audible by Guy Swann
This series aims to make the knowledge of the world’s most secure, independent money, accessible to everyone. One of my personal favorites, the podcast uses a mixed format – some episodes are readings rather than interviews. Favorite episodes include readings of the Bitcoin White Paper, Phil Bonello’s ‘Sovereign Individual Thesis’, as well as a recent a discussion on QE4 and 0% interest rates.
The Pomp Podcast by Anthony Pompliano
This podcast features leaders in blockchain and titans of other industries, such as Mark Cuban and Chamath Palihapitiya. With over 300+ episodes to choose from, skim the descriptions and pick the topics most interesting to you.
What Bitcoin Did by Peter McCormack
As the title suggests, this series is focused on Bitcoin, the foundational asset of all blockchain technology and cryptocurrencies. My favorite episode is with Plan B, a quantitative trader who built the stock-to-flow model predicting the long term price of Bitcoin. Spoiler – it’s $288k.
Unchained by Laura Shin
Curated by the former Editor of Forbes Crypto, Laura interviews some of the ‘great ones’ in the space like Vitalik Buterin and CZ. This podcast is great if you are just getting started.
Although not entirely crypto focused, a16z is the leading venture capital firm investing in blockchain, and has put out several episodes on the subject. Check out the “From the Internet’s Past to the Future of Crypto” episode with Mark Andreessen.
Baselayer by David Nage
This show curates discussions with institutional investors such as Dan Tapiero and Mark Yusko. Great listen if you are considering adding digital assets to your investment portfolio.
The Breakdown by Nathaniel Whittemore
Co-produced by Coindesk, this one is a little bit different. The Breakdown provides a daily dose of three topics shaping crypto, with…
