Back in London in 2015, sipping a pint and stuffing my face with fish and chips at a friendly meeting with a couple of bankers. We were all having insufferable conversations about the investments and the high- tech startup scene. In a stereotypical English fashion, I’m sure bowlers were adorned. I brought up cryptocurrency with Bitcoin sitting an eye-poppingly impressive $330. Bringing up BTC was an error on my part as it was quickly derided with loud chortling and fingers pointing in my face.
