Currently VP Growth at KNØX, a Bitcoin custodian designed for institutions backed by investors such as Fidelity and Initialized Capital. Booked $250,000 of revenue in the first 3 months as Head of Client Development.

In 2015, he co-founded & led the McGill X-1 Accelerator to bring medical, engineering and computer lab research to market with a shoe-string budget.

On the show, we spoke about:

  • Anti-fragility of the network
  • The proxy for the price of Bitcoin
  • How mining works and the benefit of decentralization
  • Fiat currency’s infinite supply
  • Potential future of the currency

This second interview with Thibaud was even better than the first. I learn so much by speaking with Thibaud on the subject of Bitcoin. I hope that you enjoy the conversation!
