Podcast 14: The Gift Of Bitcoin And Prudence – Cory Klippsten

Increase the value of bitcoin by education, time, and giving

Giving bitcoin with a tandem of strategy of education + timelocks increases the chance of successful investing and adoption. This episode features Cory Klippsten, the Founder of GiveBitcoin, a company that allows you to “Buy Bitcoin for friends and family, timelock it, and we’ll teach ’em what they need to know”.
