This Is The Plan To Turn Bitcoin Into A Currency That People Actually Use

Every week, hosts Joe Weisenthal and Tracy Alloway take you on a not-so-random walk through hot topics in markets, finance and economics.

Bitcoin is now over 10 years old, and by all accounts it's exceeded anything people could've imagined for it. But even at its recent peak, there was very little active use of Bitcoin in normal commerce. On this week's episode, we speak with Bitcoin maximalist Pierre Rochard of Bitcoin Advisory on why he's still a believer in the currency, and the technological developments being done to make it useful for normal spending.
