Silicon Valley capitalist and longtime crypto investor Bill Tai discusses some interesting theories about how crypto is changing money and work. He starts by talking about the shift from oil- to electron-based currencies. He also describes how people have worked flexibly, as individuals, for most of human history and only recently have they become cogs in a wheel, beholden to one employer. Crypto, he believes, will shift us back to more flexible work models.  We also talked about a new project he’s launched with CryptoKitties to try to fund endangered species — the Honu Kitty — which raised $25,000 to support turtle conservation, marine protection and other conservation projects. He’a also got more ideas for how crypto collectibles could help endangered species.
