Episode 35

This week we focused on a few requests from Dustin Byington and Brian Lawe. We responded by giving a few predictions to what Yahoo may do in payments, as they have been notably silent for years. Next we give thoughts on how to grow a Bitcoin Startup, specifically answering these questions…

If Bitcoin (crytpo) was your startup and your goal was to expand adoption as quickly as possible:

  1. What is the biggest problem Bitcoin solves?
  2. What is the most actionable problem Bitcoin solves?
  3. How do you anticipate Bitcoin evolves from 1 to 2?
  4. What demographic would you target in the US?
  5. What demographic would you target globally?

We also dig into how Pinterest should get into payments and what may end up hurting them if they do it wrong.
