Startup Funk with Bruno Ver

Startup Funk with Bruno Ver

We met many super-interesting people while in Bali at the Altcoin Mastermind. One guy really intrigued us with his story. And we thought you’d be intrigued as well. After making and losing over one million dollars twice in a row, Bruno Ver struck gold with his next investment in a major tech company. But he didn’t stop there. Bruno went down the crypto rabbit hole and is now a partner in Block 5 capital. We’re happy to bring Bruno to you today so you can hear his story.

And both Travis and I are now mining cryptos on a new device called the CoinMine One. It’s an X-Box sized device that you plug in and stand back while it mines. No computer needed. We’ll speak with Farbood Nivi of CoinMine to talk about his new mining device.

Crypto startups and crypto upstarts. It’s all here on episode #314 of The Bad Crypto Podcast.

Divi is in Altcoin Season

Divi is in Altcoin Season

You can’t pick all the winners, but when Travis and I came across The Divi Project, we recognized something really unique. And during a season when altcoins have languished and suffered horribly, Divi’s token price has increased 300%. They must be doing something right and it’s not just asking us to be advisors.

Today we catch up with Nick Saponaro of Divi to discuss the latest developments and why we are still excited about Masternodes.

The Altcoin Mastermind in Bali has ended, but we’re still here soaking up the beauty of nature and the people. So it’s going to be a short episode. Because like I said, we’re still in Bali!

Welcome to episode #307 of The Bad Crypto Podcast.
