Tech Intersect #142: Heather Maio-Smith on Making Knowledge More Accessible Through Video
Show Notes

There is power and potential in reimagining the use of audio and visual technology. It’s proven that we learn almost 91% better when we have the ability to interact and ask questions of the expert we are learning from. This week, episode 142 of the Tech Intersect™ Podcast with Heather Maio-Smith is about making knowledge more accessible through video! 


Globally, crypto investors realized total crypto gains of $162.7 billion in 2021, compared to just $32.5 billion in 2020. And in 2022, more than 200 million people worldwide have used crypto. Governments, including the US, are acknowledging the viability of this asset class and institutional investors are increasingly embracing digital currencies in their portfolios, even–and especially–in crypto winter’s bear market.

Even with all the price volatility, clearly digital currencies are increasing in popularity, acceptance and adoption. In fact, the only thing more popular than crypto right now (sadly) are crypto scams. Crypto scammers took a record $14 billion in 2021. And the trend continues. So you need to arm yourself with strategies and the latest best practices to help you identify scams and protect against self-custody losses due to user error.
