Listen to The Education of Joey King

In the first part of the interview, Joey King talks a little bit about his early years, like growing up outside his homeland of the U.S., and coming back to get an American higher education. Much of the segment also focuses on his time working for oil giant Exxon and what it taught him about the inner operations of big businesses, government control of the economy, geopolitics, international banking and other related topics. From there the Bitcoin.com developer describes how he first heard about cryptocurrency and the path that took him from his work for Exxon all the way here.

The second part of the interview focuses on the current cryptocurrency ecosystem, the problems and threats it faces, as well as how the way forward will look. King talked about some surprising lessons that bitcoin cash (BCH) supporters need to take from political and military history. The developer also candidly shared his personal experience as an investor during the highs and lows of the volatile cryptocurrency markets and how it affects your better judgment.
