Jason Hartman welcomes bitcoin expert and author of "Bitcoin Clarity," Kiara Bickers.

There's a lot of noise in the crypto space involving all kinds of buzzwords and Kiara's work helps us take a step back and obtain a true understanding of all the properties of the system without having to learn how to code or be a cryptographer. Her book aims to help us understand Bitcoin at its lowest level of actual data and remove all the mysticism. Jason and Kiara also discuss the privacy implications of a digital cash, central bank digital currencies, alt coins and decentralized finance.
