This week we are joined by TM Lee the Founder of CoinGecko, which is the world’s largest independent cryptocurrency data aggregator and has made a name as key provider of fundamental analysis on the crypto market.
This was a great conversation with TM as we talked about how he came to be interested in the crypto industry and why they decided to build CoinGecko. We talk about building a subscription model off the back of an ad-driven model. We couldn’t avoid talking about the general impact of recent events on the crypto industry as a whole. A great conversation packed with highlights.
