Giacomo is a very respected member of the Bitcoin community, but I know him as a super funny guy that’s really fun to be around in a conference. He has me in stitches every time we hang out, reminding me that in fact, the Italians are the best and I wish I was over there now having pasta and a laugh. Seems like the crypto community in Italy, while somewhat small, is also lively. In this interview, I learn a bit about Giacomo’s background along with his views on maximalism, economics, and more. It was a good conversation at a great conference (congrats to Tone Vays and his team at Unconfiscatable).
