NEW YORK, May 16, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Entrepreneur, investor, and Bitcoin advocate Charlie Shrem will host Untold Stories, a new podcast from BlockWorks Group, a digital assets events and media company.
Charlie Shrem is well known for pioneering the adoption of Bitcoin and for founding BitInstant, a company that was at one point one of the largest in the cryptocurrency space.
Shrem was one of the industry's earliest advocates, having originally invested in Bitcoin as a college student in 2011. He believes new users, investors, and builders must understand the history and intent of blockchain and cryptocurrency for the sector to properly progress.
"Every day, more people enter the crypto space. It's imperative that these new builders and investors understand how the crypto movement truly came to be and what we're trying to accomplish," said Shrem.
Shrem will also serve as an executive producer on the project, and work with BlockWorks Group to develop themes, choose featured guests, and manage production.
In each episode, Shrem will speak with digital asset movers and shakers to uncover the stories of the movement that have never been heard before. These unique "untold stories" provided the inspiration for the show's name.
"Charlie is uniquely positioned to explore the early days of cryptocurrency with the very people who built it, said BlockWorks Group's Co-Founder, Jason Yanowitz. "Untold Stories recognizes the trials and tribulations that went into building the movement that has grown into a multi-billion dollar sector."
