TM Lee of CoinGecko
World's Largest Independent Crypto Data Aggregator
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.
