A Special Crypto Chat With Adam O’Dell
I had time this week to do a special Q&A session with Money & Markets’ Adam O’Dell.
We talked about bitcoin, Ethereum, Web3 and other developments in the crypto space.
It’s a longer video than we normally record for Market Insights. So I was able to share my thoughts on a variety of topics.
I had a great time chatting with Adam about cryptos, and I hope you enjoy our video.

My career on Wall Street started while I was in college. I spent a summer interning for Merrill Lynch in the middle of the ‘90s bull market. I was fascinated with trading, and as a result, after college, I joined Salomon Brothers in the famed mortgage bond trading department. Later, I spent time at Citigroup working with credit derivatives. Eventually, I needed to walk away from the excess of Wall Street. That’s when I joined Banyan Hill in 2017. Now I help readers get ahead of the market and build their retirements.
