Richard Jacobs didn’t start out as a Bitcoin industry insider–instead, he realized that during the stress and unhappiness of the 2016 election season, reading and learning about cryptocurrency and blockchain fascinated him, and ultimately made him happy. In order to learn more about the industry, he began Future Tech Podcast. Since his first interview with Mate Tokay of Bitcoin.com, he has interviewed more than 200 industry insiders, from all corners of cryptospace–miners, hodlers, whales, crypto enthusiasts, founders of blockchain companies, venture capitalists, and much more.
This gave Ricahrd a unique, bird’s eye view of the crypto industry. Intended both for curious newcomers and experienced veterans, Richard’s book “Bitcoin, Ethereum, Alt Coins, and Blockchain: Surprising Insights from 200+ Interviews with Industry Insiders” provides an overview of many advances in cryptospace, as well as reference pages for each company mentioned. Ultimately, his book is a way to both educate those who are interested in learning more, as well as to thank those who have helped him get where he is today.
