    Francisco Gimeno - BC Analyst Long and amazing podcast. Some people like Anish are there not to be on the frontline of MSBCN and Bloomberg every week, but to steadily work on all related to blockchain and crypto. His words make us think "that is, that is what is all about", in a new ecosystem where a tokenised economy is not separated from morality and personal values, where everyone is learning the ropes and working hard, creating something solid, real, new.
