Key Quotes:

  • “I think in cryptocurrency… universal basic income, is for the first time is even actually possible, in a way that you can actually feasibly work, where people can all have a standard of life without sacrificing individual liberties.” – Jonathan Libby
  • “We’re almost building a model that prioritizes reinsurance. We move from reinsurance to actually sharing the protocols ourselves as they keep developing. And by us, I mean a deep centralized community, not run by me not run by anyone you know, directly…But, by the people.” – Jonathan Libby
  • “My thought was…let’s apply this. I’m like, this is the future. So, I started looking…How do I put together a bunch of concepts together and build something? Eventually, I met a very well known figure in the space, named Tim frost, from Yield app, and Yield app contracted me to build an insurance solution for them, and how to insure their portfolio to defy risk.” – Jonathan Libby
