In this episode, we are proud to present you with an EPIC interview with Bitcoin pioneer: Dan Held, Growth lead at Kraken.
Before Kraken, Dan worked at Interchange, a portfolio reconciliation tool for crypto institutional traders, which was acquired by Kraken in 2019. Prior to that, Dan was at Uber on Rider Growth/Global Data.
Dan made grounds in the industry by building some of the most popular early crypto products including ChangeTip (acquired by AirBnB), and ZeroBlock (acquired by Blockchain.com in the second-ever all Bitcoin acquisition). He was part of the original 2013 crypto meetup group in San Francisco which was comprised of the founders of Coinbase, Ripple, Kraken, Litecoin, and others.
In this interview we question Dan about:
- The early days of Bitcoin
- How is crypto solving problems?
- Yield farming
- The intensity of the markets
- Launching coins
- Bitcoin's mission
