Charlie Shrem’s Way to Bitcoin: From Millionaire to Felon and Beyond
Charlie Shrem explains why he originally committed to crypto and how it has shaped his life.
Charlie Shrem has been involved in crypto longer than almost anyone. He likes to joke that he was one of the first ten people to ever hear about Bitcoin. He now hosts the crypto-focused podcast Untold Stories, which attempts to chronicle the history of crypto through the eyes and experiences of its most influential players.
Cointelegraph’s most recent live Q&A gave the audience the opportunity to directly question Shrem about crypto, his past, and anything in between. The topics ranged from XRP, DApps, and stablecoins to his time spent in prison. Shrem revealed how he first heard about Bitcoin, who he believes is leading the crypto space, and explains how prison enabled him to reaffirm his commitment to cryptocurrencies. Check out the full stream in the video above.
