In this episode, Aaron and Trishul try to parse out blockchain, cryptocurrencies, and Bitcoin. One is a revolutionary technology, one can potentially change the world of banking, and one has dominated recent headlines. They first dig into the distinctions among these concepts. They then discuss whether Bitcoin is a store of value like gold or a speculative investment like a start-up. But beware, if you are removing regulated institutions from the process, there is no one to help you find your lost keys if you "misplace" them.
