“The Banksy of money”: Is CRYPTOCURRENCY out of control?

Cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin were supposed to overturn the tyranny of the banks and give consumers new power over their money. This financial Wild West is still plagued with fraud, scams, pyramid schemes and doomed start-ups. But as entrepreneur, investor and follower of the crypto/blockchain market PHILLIP NUNN explains, the “Internet of Money” is coming whether governments like it or not. Can it become a force for good in the economic revival?


  • “When people say if Pablo Escobar were around now he’d be using Bitcoin, that’s just not true.”
  • “At first crypto was kids in their bedrooms just trying stuff. Now it’s got billions and billions of market cap.”
  • “To hack one chain of Bitcoin you’d need 30 times the power of Google’s servers.”
