Former Utah State House representative and entrepreneur Aaron Tilton saw that cryptocurrency was going to be the financial tool of tomorrow years ago. He started an energy company dedicated to helping crypto miners find cheap and reliable energy to run the backbone of the blockchain. Now, he and his team have a new, bleeding-edge project: SmartFi, an all-in-one investing, trading, swapping & lending platform that’s designed to make using crypto as the basis for your finances as easy, secure and reliable as possible. Today, he joins Tatiana to talk all about where SmartFi came from, where it’s going, and why you should be signing up.
