If the terms “Blockchain” and “Cryptocurrency” have you uttering "Oofda", this episode is for you.

Okay, maybe you aren't Minnesotan, so your expression of confusion is more like "Huh" or "What", but digital currencies can be hard to wrap your head around and understanding the basics is essential for understanding progress in the space.

In this episode, Tim Bornholdt and Arena’s Chase Thompson go back to basics about what makes up the digital world of crypto and how it’s shaping life and business as we know it.

In this episode, you will learn:

  • Where the crypto industry is failing
  • Why understanding ownership is a precursor to understanding Bitcoin
  • The narrative of Bitcoin
  • An analogy for what Blockchain is and how it works as a typical user
  • How to bridge the gap between common people and nerds who use this technology everyday
  • Who to follow and avoid in the minefield of learning cryptocurrency
