EP 2 - How ConsenSys CEO Joe Lubin Co-Founded Ethereum to Change the Way we Live

In this episode

For one of two launch episodes for my new podcast Next with Novo, I called up my old college roommate and friend, the CEO of ConsenSys, co-founder of the Ethereum Project, and all-around crypto guru, Joe Lubin. I’m so glad to have been able to get Joe on the show to help kick off these conversations about what’s new and what’s next, the best & brightest minds behind the technologies powering permissionless innovation, with a focus on how cryptocurrency (Bitcoin, Ethereum, DeFi) is taking us into the future and rewriting our financial systems.

Following his upbringing in Toronto and education at Princeton, Joe started noticing systemic issues in our political and economic structures and how equity is shared. He knew we needed a different future and decided he wanted to help build it. After reading a white paper from anonymous Bitcoin creator Satoshi Nakamoto, Joe went on to found the ConsenSys project, leading to the creation of Ethereum, the first cryptocurrency on the blockchain.

Check out the episode to learn more from Joe about the past, present, and future of Ethereum, the banking industry’s rapid moves in crypto, the hottest DeFi projects, and how cryptocurrency is bringing us an enlightened worldwide infrastructure that will change our entire way of life.
