We are joined by Ray Youssef, the founder of one of the world's biggest peer-to-peer bitcoin markets, Paxful. We discuss his entrepreneurial history, what drew him to bitcoin, and how Paxful has grown in the developing world. We also discuss Ray's views on economic development in Africa in general and Egypt and Nigeria in particular, what policies can end poverty, how bitcoin helps, and why Paxful delists centralized shitcoin scams.
