438: Cycling Toward A Bitcoin Boom with Tuur Demeester

Tuur Demeester is the founder and Editor-in-Chief of Adamant Research and rejoins the show after many years to discuss where we find ourselves in the bitcoin bear cycle, how this cycle compares to past cycles, and whether or not the altcoin cycle will be as pronounced as it has historically. From a risk-adjusted perspective, there has never been a better time in the last 15-years to get into bitcoin, whether you're an investor or a builder.
