How Messari is Transforming Transparency in the Cryptocurrency Space with Ben O’Neill
This week I sat down with Ben from Messari to talk about transparency in the cryptocurrency and blockchain space. We discuss what it means to be transparent and how these companies have been failing at transparency over the last few years. I really believe that the lack of transparency is disconnecting these projects from their community and causing the community to have trust issues with their audience.
Beyond that, Ben and I discuss a bit about the Ripple Report created by Messari that highlights different areas that Ripple has been doing transparency well and a few ways where they have not been doing it well. This leads us into chatting about the balance between being completely honest with their data and how to relay this information to an extremely biased community.
