Cory Klippsten is the co-founder of Swan Bitcoin, as well as a Bitcoin angel investor and educator.
Cory and I had a wide-ranging conversation, starting with Cory’s work at Swan, and then getting into the Lightning work Cory is doing, startup investing, the macro-economic picture, educating Bitcoiners, and more.
