What Bitcoin Did


Sep 6, 2021

Location: Remotely
Date: Tuesday 31st August
Company: Swan Bitcoin
Role: Co-founder & CTO

It has been nearly 13 years since Satoshi released the Bitcoin whitepaper. In that time, Bitcoin has overcome significant hurdles, going from an experimental attempt at digital money to a trillion-dollar asset.

Bitcoin is the hardest money the world has ever known. 

In the early days, bitcoiners were mostly cypherpunks and libertarians, but now almost everyone has at least heard of bitcoin; corporations have begun holding bitcoin on their balance sheets and on September 7th, bitcoin becomes legal tender for the first time.

Widescale mass adoption has never been closer, but much growth is still required, especially in the ease of onboarding, user experience, and education.

In this interview, I talk to Yan Pritzker, co-founder and CTO of Swan Bitcoin. We discuss his family fleeing socialism, onboarding 10 million bitcoiners, and building for global bitcoin adoption.
