Bitcoin Risk Assessment with Lyn Alden

“If you’re on the titanic and you think you’re unsinkable, you’re more likely to hit an iceberg, whereas if you’re on the titanic you still want to be looking out for icebergs.”
— Lyn Alden

Role: Macroeconomist

Bitcoin is still a relatively new technology with many adversaries and existential threats. And risk assessment is a crucial component of any sound investment strategy.

While naysayers often cite long-refuted misunderstandings, not all threats are negligible. From regulatory action to protocol risk, there are many things to consider.

So what is a real threat, and what is FUD?

In this interview, I talk to Lyn Alden, a macroeconomist and investment strategist. We discuss potential long-term risks to bitcoin, mitigation, and bitcoin vs other technology.
