We had our 5th installation of That Crypto Hustle meet up on Thursday, Sept 27th at Aticco in Barcelona.
Our panelists were;
Matt Aaron, from Humans of Bitcoin Podcast Network
Nuria Gutierrez Prunera, Co-Founder atElementus
Aleix Ordeig, CEO at Blockchain Institute and Technology
The topics on discussed were:
Matt is an organic agriculturist who self-taught himself into Bitcoin slightly over a year ago, Aleix has been in the industry for five years and says he is more into Blockchain for the business and tech part of it.
Aleix addressed the question of Blockchain as a ‘buzz thing’ that every company associates itself with. He mentioned there is a lot of back and forth within the Blockchain space and we can only expect tangible developmental results beginning 2025.
Matt chipped in on the sort of ‘warring’ happening between different coin supporters and how we can ultimately get to an agreement through our shared goals and ideas. Matt feels we should stop the debates amongst ourselves and let the free market decide while we as developers focus on the goal.
Matt compares Blockchain to the internet and thinks we are as much going to grow with it just like we did with the internet – i.e, starting out with http and moving to the secure https. Today, we may not have many use case scenarios of Blockchain but we are certainly going to in the future. Aleix felt we’d need to put up more transparency and expertise to enable us leverage more on the Blockchain technology.
Can we do better with more programing languages? Aleix feels that for solidity, ‘Smart Contracts’ should be developed as a Blockchain language.
On regulations, Matt leans towards cryptos being be left to their own devices while Aleix prefers legislation to rid us of scams.
Whether we are looking at STOs as a solution for ICOs, Matt says STOs are different from ICOs and shouldn’t be in a competition while Aleix thinks STOs are a better and more secure path.
Would be interesting to hear how your thoughts align; Matt or Aleix?

IRA’s and cryptocurrencies, two completely different markets, with one being vastly older and significantly less volatile than the other. According to today’s guest, Morgan Steckler, CEO of iTrustCapital, a cryptocurrency retirement company, there’s a lot of untapped interest towards cryptocurrencies coming from the IRA space.
