Josh Rosenthal is our favorite crypto native historian. He has a Ph.D. in history, and received a Fulbright Scholarship to the Sorbonne’s Institute for Advanced Studies.

Josh moved beyond traditional academia, sold some Web2 companies, and is now a crypto investor. He’s the historian that helped us craft the Crypto Renaissance podcast episode, which many people credit as the reason why they got into crypto.

And he’s here to do it again with the Crypto Revolution on the 4th of July, harkening a new independence day for the crypto nation.
