This episode is hosted by Scott Hartley, co-founder and general partner of Everywhere Ventures (previously The Fund). In this interview, Scott and Aidan discuss the art and science of recovering digital assets. Discover how the IRS has recovered more in digital assets than the entire US law enforcement effort, and how a single Bitcoin seizure by the Metropolitan Police in London was worth more than the entire country’s known digital assets! Listen for the factors making it conducive for a country to adopt new forms of payment and also be more susceptible to asset scams. Plus a few tidbits about Aidan’s background that makes him well-suited to his endeavor.
