Bill Talks to Dan Tapiero

Originally aired on May 23, 2026

Bill Barhydt, the host of Money Talks, talks to Dan Tapiero, CEO and managing partner of 10T Holdings, a growth equity venture capital firm. They discuss the future of proof of work versus proof of stake, the risks for Ethereum, and the scalability of Lightning.
