Cutting Edge Security: Not Your Keys, Not Your Coins [VIDEO]

I recently interviewed Paul Puey, CEO and Co-Founder of Edge, the popular open-source blockchain wallet and cryptocurrency exchange. 

As an Electrical Engineering and Computer Science graduate of UC Berkeley, Paul is undoubtedly one of the sharpest guests I’ve had the pleasure of speaking with for The Crypto Vigilante video series

Paul held lead engineering positions with Nvidia and Chromatic Research but most recently owned and operated several non-technical small businesses throughout California. There he learned the importance of the intersection of people, business, and technology.

Today, Paul aims to bring cryptocurrency mainstream with software and products to simplify crypto and make it insanely easy to send, receive, and securely store revolutionary cryptocurrencies while maintaining the highest level of privacy.

Paul and I had a fascinating and in-depth conversation where we spoke about everything from Monero (XMR) and Pirate Chain (ARRR) to the Open Transactions project and the early days of crypto. 

We also covered the difference between custodial and non-custodial platforms, the hype around NFTs, and much more. 

We even discussed Boost POW, a protocol whereby Bitcoin users can buy proof-of-work from miners by creating an output that miners can redeem with a cryptographic nonce. 

Paul is all about balance, but he and I agree 100% on our belief that empowering individuals to take control of their data will lead to better security everywhere, for everyone.

Enjoy the full video interview.

Paul Puey and the Edge team created and maintained a self-custody crypto exchange and security platform that enables anyone to buy, store, and trade dozens of cryptocurrencies in one app. 

The Edge Wallet is a reliable and user-friendly platform for beginners and experts alike. 

You can follow Paul on Twitter @paullinator where he recently pointed out Monero’s steady gains. 

Remember, when it comes to how you HODL your crypto, if you don’t own your keys, those are not your coins.
