Paul Puey cofounded Airbitz in Jan 2014 with the mission of creating a platform to secure bitcoin and digital assets in not just an easy but also familiar way that is usable to the masses that don't want to deal with the complexity of encryption, backup, or multi-word passphrases. They aim to accomplish this while retaining bitcoin's core advantages of autonomy, privacy, and decentralization.

Steve fouled up recording his end of the interview with Airbitz CEO Paul. So we did the best we could to reconstruct the interview.

The first half of the frankenstein episode reconstruction was done with the three of us. And then for the second half it's just steve and Paul

Paul has really gone out of his way to add value to the blockchain space we think that even with an episode that isn't our best it's still well worth the listen.
