About this Episode

My guest is Dan Conway. His new book is Confessions of a Crypto Millionaire: My Unlikely Escape from Corporate America. When the Financial Times interviewed Dan Conway for a story about cryptocurrency millionaires, he told them the unvarnished truth: "I invested because I wanted the underdogs to win, for once - losers like me who didn't make the rules and didn't have the money... We'd been forced to tweet corporate philanthropy hashtags, and we weren't going to take it anymore."

For years, Dan scuffed his way up the corporate ladder. He made a good salary - just enough to support his family and save for a distant retirement. His perky LinkedIn profile should've said he was a caged animal, looking to escape by any means necessary. Facing career turmoil, bills and an existential crisis, he turned to a corporate-killer blockchain called Ethereum which promised to upend work as we know it.

Statistics show most people hate their jobs. Are we broken? Or is the system? How much would you risk for your financial independence?
