    Kraken founder is cool and he just needs some breath work. Breath work can be found in yoga or teachers like Ido Portal. Once he got more comfortable he dropped some wisdom. Would like to see him back.

    Yes, please more Bitcoin interviews. Hard to imagine not holding both gold and Bitcoin in this macro environment. Making convoluted paper derivative bets on currency crosses is entertaining but when the debt bubble bursts I can't imagine not having a bunch of gold and a bunch of Bitcoin.
    Hard for me to imagine anyone with any wealth to protect not having those two hedges in place.

    Get Tuur to do more interviews. Do more interviews on crypto and updates on the politics. RV has the opportunity to be the voice of reason in a huge fucked up world of FUD.

    Maybe dull in tone but very exciting in context! Crypto may be bumpy road but it's here to stay

    Pleased to see how far RVTV has come in covering crypto currencies. Back in the day (a little over a year ago), Tuur was a rare guest speaking on this new and 'exotic' subject. And now he's conducting interviews and it seems like we cover this subject 2-3 times a month. Looking forward to more such great interviews on this subject as this space is so fluid and truly transforming rapidly before us.
