Episode 5: Buy urBITCOIN with Christian Langalis
This week we speak with Christian Langalis. Christian is known best, perhaps, for holding up a “Buy Bitcoin” sign behind the head of Janet Yellen on CSPAN during a 2017 Humphrey-Hawkins testimony.
But he is gaining wider recognition, now, for bringing Bitcoin to Urbit, because he believes ‘sound money deserves a sound computer’. We talk to him about his introduction to Bitcoin, his work in finance and cryptocurrency, Bitcoin maximalism, and why he decided to bring his vision for Bitcoin to Tlon We also discuss what the marriage of Bitcoin and Urbit will mean for both platforms, as well as Christian’s community-building on Urbit.
