Guests: Jesse Powell

Nope. Sorry. We will NOT forgive your ignorance. If you’ve known about The DAO for a few months and read the website and other materials and you still don’t “get it”, then we pity you. Steven Mckie, from Yours, joins the roundtable to break it down for you. TLI5 style. In addition, we invite Jesse Powell the Co-founder of Kraken, which is a digital asset exchange with support for Bitcoin, Ethereum (ether), Litecoin, and etc. We chat about being selected to aid MtGox liquidation and accepting MtGox bankruptcy claims. We also get an update on possible acquisitions. Because being the world’s largest bitcoin exchange in euro volume and liquidity isn’t enough! After fully absorbing both Coinsetter and Cavirtex brand, they are ready to acquire more. More rollup; fewer exchanges. That’s the idea!
