Brian Murray is a partner and the COO at Craft Ventures, a VC firm dedicated to finding the next generation of world-changing companies.
Brian shared a fascinating perspective on Bitcoin, Lightning, startup investing, and the ways in which the Lightning Network will be impactful to different sets of people all over the world. I learned a ton from this conversation, and I know you will too.
