#3: Robert Miller on Bio Meets Crypto, Kierkegaard, and Health Optimization

🎙 Introduction

My guest today is Robert Miller. Robert is a friend of mine, we share a lot of the same interests. He writes an excellent newsletter about business, data, and emerging technologies in healthcare. He is an expert on Crypto, Blockchain, and all things related to healthcare, and he is a great thinker. He studied Economics at The London School of Economics and Political Science and he is currently building a better healthcare system at ConsenSys Health, a Spun out from an internal ConsenSys team.

We start the conversation discussing why so many people from the crypto world are now interested in biotech and longevity, then we talk about internal motivation and social media. After that we cover health optimization and we discuss the idea of a "Strava for Health." Then Robert explains the idea behind prediction markets, and how we might use them in the future. We also touch on the problems of the funding of scientific innovations and Eroom's Law. We finish the conversation talking about philosophy, and why Robert loves Kierkegaard.

Please, enjoy my conversation with Robert Miller!
