Crypto has taken the world by storm - a niche computer science topic less than a decade ago has finally entered the purview of mainstream today - Coinbase has filed to go public, institutions are accepting that Bitcoin and more broadly crypto should be a part of their asset allocation strategy and we’re starting to see a variety of interesting projects and applications take shape - one of the most popular as of late has been Bitclout.
But it hasn’t always been so obvious or so popular. One of the earliest and most consistent proponents of bitcoin has been Anthony Pompliano, Co-Founder of Morgan Creek Digital and current CEO of Pomp Investments.
In today’s conversation, Pomp and I discussed how his interest in bitcoin evolved - he was in the Army, led Growth teams at Facebook and eventually went full steam into crypto. We started at a foundational level breaking down questions like: “what is money” and evolved more deeply into BTC specifically and its implications. We spent the latter half of the discussion on Pomp’s budding media empire - with almost 700,000 followers on Twitter and a variety of other initiatives going, Pomp is building something special.
