We Study Billionaires - The Investor’s Podcast

Guest
Pierre Rochard comes back to the show to do a deep dive into ordinals and the impact of people being able to put NFTs onto the base layer of the Bitcoin protocol. Many people in the space are currently debating whether this is a good thing or a bad thing, and there's no one better than Pierre to provide a good objective look at what it means and whether it potentially presents an attack vector to the protocol in the long term.

Pierre has an in-depth understanding of the code, how exchanges work, mining, and everything else in between.
