Charlie Shrem is a well known O.G. [original gangster] in the crypto world.

Joel Comm and Travis Wright have one of the most popular crypto podcasts on the interwebs. We find their podcast more entertaining than anything else – as they don’t take themselves too seriously and often times will take jabs at themselves. Nevertheless, they are still one of the powerhouses in the crypto podcast world – and can attract some of the most high profile guests in the space. Some of their more well known episodes include bizarre interviews with the late John McAfee – which is definitely entertaining to say the least.
Guy is one of the most well known crypto YouTubers out there. He is known for providing extremely insightful, educational, and easy to follow breakdowns of all things crypto. His YouTube channel is definitely a must-subscribe for anyone interested in learning more about cryptocurrency and his perspective on emerging trends. These videos are as entertaining as they are educational. However – he is also NOT a financial advisor (and neither are we), which is something he is sure to disclaim at the beginning of every episode in his unique and quirky way.

They interview billionaires and study the habits, strategies, and systems these investors used to get them to their level of investment success.
