Miko Matsumura – Serial Entrepreneur, Venture Partner & Co-Founder of Evercoin. Miko took a winding career road from pure science to Silicon Valley where he caught the start-up bug. After a foray at a large company, he went “from zero to one” and launched a series of start-ups. In 2016, he became interested in crypto and soon started Evercoin, a crypto service based in self-custody and ownership. In the episode, he raises some key questions: if money will poison open source or if open source will liberate money and make it more virtuous, if open source is essentially a bubble that will burst in investors’ faces, and if there’s a benefit to the crypto volatility that points to its rising fame. Hear Miko’s take on the beauty of the Internet, how crypto is the first protocol for storing and transmitting economic value on the Internet, and the future of open-source currency.
