Hussein Badakhchani is the CTO at Noah, a Bitcoin company building what they believe is the money app of the future.
Hussein and I spoke about the new products Noah is building, the different mechanics that help people earn, save, spend, and pay money on Noah, and the future of payments on the Lightning Network.
