Jimmy and Joe Wager on Blockchain ‘Pixie Dust’
Joe Lubin, the founder of the ethereum startup studio Consensys, and Jimmy Song, a partner at Blockchain Capital, struck a handshake bet in front of an audience of hundreds, perhaps thousands, at CoinDesk’s Consensus 2018 conference in New York City on Monday.
Lubin bet Song “any amount of bitcoin” that five years in the future, the blockchain space will include some number of applications – perhaps five – that have earned a yet-to-be-defined number of users.
Bitcoin maximalist Song took the bet.
She then brought Song and Lubin onstage for a conversation that immediately caught fire, with Baldet asking what Song thought about Clovyr.
But Song accepted the wager, and Lubin tweeted at Song shortly afterward:
Well that was fun.
