#bitcoin #blockchain #aantonop

Dear Crypto Community and Blockchain Buddies across the globe.

Welcome back to our special Virtual Interview series! We are honoured to interview once again, the legend himself… Andreas Antonopoulos, one of the leading and most inspiring figures in the space. His mission is to educate the world about #bitcoin and open blockchains and reveal its historical, technological and socio-economic impact, in as many places and languages as possible.

He is a best-selling author, speaker, educator, and highly sought after expert in Bitcoin and open #blockchain technologies. Author of two best-selling technical books for programmers: Mastering Bitcoin and Mastering Ethereum, he also published a series of books called: The Internet of Money.

Andreas has been interviewed by Bloomberg, CNN, CNBC, CBS, NBC, ABC, BBC, and Financial Times for his industry expertise and has been a repeat guest on The Joe Rogan Experience and London Real. Featured in numerous documentary films, he is a permanent host on Let’s Talk Bitcoin, a podcast with more than 400 episodes recorded to date.

Here is a recap from last year’s interviews at Cryptocompare Digital Asset
