When I asked Rahul, founder of esports gambling blockchain company UNIKRN, what he would tell a major bank executive if they called for advice on what to do about the blockchain, it turns out they already had, well sort of, but it’s a great story giving bold believers in the transformative power of the blockchain some hope.

18. Jackson Palmer of Dogecoin Explains How 2017 Was a Bad Year for Bitcoin

Jackson Palmer, Dogecoin creator, Cryptocurrency visionary and realist.

Today’s guest, illuminating the blockchain, is Jackson Palmer, who in 2013, created Dogecoin. Created partly as satire, it’s valued in total at over 1 billion dollars today. We are going to tell the origin story of Dogecoin in a future episode, but today we tap Jackson’s rare insight, starting with his take on the last year in crypto, and how in terms of crypto as an investment, it may have been great but in terms of proving the purpose of crypto as a currency, 2017 was a bad year.

It’s ironic in a way that a coin made as joke may actually prove to have more integrity and more utility than most of the coins created this last year.

Finding a voice of reason amidst the flurry of hype in this space is rare, and I’m grateful for Jackson’s humility, wisdom and effort to bring clarity to the picture we are painting of the blockchain.
