Rob ‘Crypto Bobby’ Paone and Preethi Kasireddy on Fundraising, Halvings and the Long Steady Slog of Crypto
Why 2019 was a long, steady slog of behind the scenes building and why 2020 promises more of the same.
Rob Paone, aka Crypto Bobby, got his start as a popular crypto YouTuber and has gone on to help build a number of crypto companies before launching his own technical recruitment firm.
Preethi Kasireddy is the founder of the TruStory debate platform. In two individual interviews as part of The Breakdown’s end of year extra, both argue that a big part of the 2019 story was the slow, steady slog of building, and that, in some ways, 2020 may be poised for more of the same.
