“Carpe Consensus” is a show for crypto fans and fiends, DeFi degens, non-fungible enthusiasts and welcomes the crypto curious. Each week, hosts Ben Schiller, Danny Nelson and Cam Thompson seize the world of crypto, debating the latest in industry and community news alongside guest experts and commentators.
This week, “Opinionated” hosts Ben Schiller, Anna Baydakova and Danny Nelson are talking to Jameson Lopp, developer and chief technology officer of Casa, a bitcoin custodian.
This episode is sponsored by Unique One Network and Mimo.
Lopp is a vocal bitcoin advocate and one of those people you probably think about when you hear “bitcoin maximalist.” In this conversation, Jameson explains his attitude toward non-bitcoin projects, DeFi projects and how he, himself, likes to kick the tires of various new projects to see what they are worth.
Lopp is a hardcore crypto anarchist. He believes that bitcoin is the kind of “F-you money” that allows financial autonomy unparalleled by any other financial tools. But are there many people ready to take the risks and responsibility of bitcoin self-custody for the sake of this freedom? For Lopp, it’s a “billion-dollar question” and a matter of constant work and improvement.
Listen to Ben, Anna and Danny talk to Lopp about his views on the challenges of bitcoin adoption, the quality of the DeFi projects he’s involved in and the most exciting project he is working on now.
