Excellent talk on Bitcoin by @FEhrsam

Video Of The Week: Fred Ehrsam’s Bitcoin Presentation Someone posted this video in the comments a week or two ago. I watched it and liked it a lot. Fred Ehrsam , the co-founder of our portfolio company Coinbase , does a good job explaining what Bitcoin is and why it is important in ten minutes, no small feat. In other Bitcoin news, the results of the AVC poll on Bitcoin ownership are in. 40% of AVC readers own Bitcoin, 60% do not. I purposely did not tweet out this pool as I only wanted regular readers of AVC to participate. I think if I had tweeted out a link with the headline “Do You Own Bitcoin?”, that would have skewed the results as Bitcoin fans would have poured in to vote.
