Ben Askren grew up on a wrestling mat where he discovered a unique style to defeat his opponent, called “The Funk.” It is this funky nature that eventually led Ben down a path to early Bitcoin adoption. Living up to his name, Ben has just recently agreed to return to the combat sports arena to defeat Jake Paul in a prizefight boxing match, reliving his championship days.

In this episode, Melker and Askren discuss a range of topics including:

Training for Jake Paul
Earning the nickname Ben “Funky” Askren
Learning to take profits
Diversifying out of crypto
Emotionally trading altcoins
Celebrity crypto boxing
The Funky Crypto Podcast
A potential 80% Bitcoin drop
10x in altcoin positions
Defeating Jake Paul in April
