First of all I would like to thank you for taking the time to check out the Crypto Talks podcast. These days time and attention are very valuable and I truly appreciate that I’ve got yours now. I wanted to record this short intro to make clear what Crypto Talks is going to be about (apart of the obvious crypto part, that is). I came up with the concept and the name for this podcast more than half a year ago. Back then I did not have bitcoin and blockchain related subjects all over my Facebook feed. Back then the interest was not as high as it is now… but nevertheless that’s when I personally was introduced to the whole new world of crypto. I've been creating content for years so I guess it was just a matter of time for me to come across Steemit. I joined the platform and started earning crypto for creating content… and that’s when the journey down the rabbit hole began. I became an accidental crypto owner and had no idea what to do with it… so the answers to each of my questions unfolded new things, provoked more questions and led me meeting amazing people who had joined the sphere much earlier than me. Podcasting is a media I am in love with. I've been podcasting regularly for over 3 years already. So there is no surprise that as a result of my journey down the rabbit hole I decided to launch a new podcast. And since I hate following the crowd I wanted to come up with a concept that was different from the podcasts that already existed. There are many resources out there with crypto and blockchain related news, many podcasts doing market analysis and crypto valuations… media covering the tech side, the figures and the trends… All that is great - but I did not want to create one more podcast like that… I am a fiction writer and I love meeting new people. That is why I care more about who the humans behind the crypto are rather than the bitcoin exchange rate at the moment, I want to find out more about the people rather then the tech - their stories, their challenges, how did they end up where they are now, who are they apart from being a crypto expert, enthusiast or celebrity. Who were they before the blockchain appeared in this world. Crypto Talks will broadcast unscripted, natural and human conversations with the early adopters of the crypto and blockchain world. I will also speak to those who have exciting blockchain projects - projects that matter - the ones that will bring positive change to our everyday lives. So in short - I will be talking to interesting people from crypto, recording our talks and share them with you. Check out the following episodes and if you like them I’d truly appreciate if you subscribe to the show and leave a review. That will mean a world to me.
