The Bitcoin Game #24 - Exploring Purse with Andrew Lee

Published on August 27th, 2015 by Rob


Hello, welcome to episode 24 of The Bitcoin Game, I'm Rob Mitchell.

Earlier this month I got to speak with Andrew Lee from Purse, a company that allows people to use Bitcoin to buy stuff on Amazon, and at pretty large discounts. My own first thought about Purse was that it was some strange company trying to shoehorn its way between Bitcoiners and Amazon. But after talking to Andrew, I now see Purse as a company that is helping to spread the use and adoption of Bitcoin throughout the world. There’s a lot more to Purse than I realized! Hope you enjoy this interview.
