🎙 103 - Blockchains are Cities | Haseeb Qureshi
Inside the episode
Invest in crypto with the tax advantages of an IRA using Alto IRA. 125+ assets supported!
First, Haseeb Qureshi was a Texas Hold’em poker player. Then Haseeb learned how to code and worked as a software engineer for Airbnb. He went down the crypto rabbithole and is now the managing partner at Dragonfly Capital, as well as an accomplished writer and coder.
He recently published an article titled Blockchains are Cities, expanding on a mental model for understanding the crypto landscape from a high level perspective. We brought Haseeb back onto the Bankless Podcast to dive into this metaphor, which explains how cities (and blockchains) scale.
We also explore the question of the decade: Will we live in a multi-chain world, or will there be “one chain to rule them all”?
