To be successful in the entrepreneurship space, you have to know the rules of the game, which Brian shares in this episode. He talks about how you can overcome fear to achieve your goals, the importance of meditation, and ways to embrace transparency in your business.

After reading The 4-Hour Work Week by Tim Ferris, Brian became more passionate about entrepreneurship. He started his first company in America, and he also went to Berlin to form a partnership, but these didn’t work out. 

Brian didn’t know what to do next, so he decided to go back to school and study more. He joined UCL, but he didn’t feel any direct impact on his skills. However, as he was finishing, Brian discovered Bitcoin, and he decided to build a career around cryptocurrency. Today, Brian runs three different companies that he has grown by following different entrepreneurship strategies, which he outlines in this episode.

Brian also talks about how blockchain can be used by health industries and governance in the future, the countries adopting cryptocurrency, China banning Bitcoin mining, and how blockchain technologies can help countries that have very volatile markets. He also shares some insights on how governments can adopt cryptocurrencies and integrate them so that they can become service providers.

Plus, Brian tells us the story of Silk Road and how it has revealed a dark side to this new blockchain technology. From hiring hitmen to contacting drug dealers, the underworld of the internet has allowed criminal acts to thrive in this free market. He goes on to talk about, drug policies, space travel, and his company Chorus One.
