418. Is Crypto a Scam? Debate with Theo Cox from Life Itself

Life Itself recently published its web3 and crypto guide - a multi-month project of research and analysis to "make sense" of crypto and web3 and to evaluate the various claims being made for and against. In this conversation, we unpacked the reports findings, and engage in an honest debate of sorts as to why some of the findings may or may not be justified. Specifically we looked at:

Whether Bitcoin should be the new gold standard

Crypto providing better payment and remittance services

NFTs and whether crypto can better financialize non-financial value

The social goods problem; and

Whether most crypto solutions are searching for problems
