Bloomberg reporter and author Matt Leising joins Troy and Lee to discuss his recent book about the Ethereum blockchain and the DAO hack. Part history and part detective story, Matt doesn’t spoil the whodunnit but he gives us great insights into what happened and how he solved the mystery. He also talks a lot about his views regarding the promise of blockchain and Ethereum and articulates the different visions that different people in the blockchain community have for the technology and its use cases. The book is a compelling read and will give readers both a well-told story and insights into a potentially very important technology and how it developed.
