About The Conversation
Rogan initiated the conversation, asking Killer Mike if he was paying attention to cryptocurrency. The rapper admitted that he wasn’t too familiar with the space, and had just gotten into stocks.
Rogan then spoke about how he fascinated about the idea of a “decentralized economy”. He elaborated that it was interesting to think about currency that was outside of the control of banks, and how a currency could exist that wasn’t affected by local exchange rates. He concluded that if true decentralization was achieved, “it would be a really different world.”
