Welcome to another Shot Caller Podcast where we bring you the most inspirational, innovative and groundbreaking change makers we can find.

Luzius Meisser is an early Bitcoin investor and a "2019 Digital Shaper" in the world of digitalization. Luzius is on the board of the global powerhouse crypto financial services firm Bitcoin Suisse. In addition, Luzius co-founded the Bitcoin Association of Switzerland and is a member of their board. Luzius is also a board member of Quitt.CH, Algo Trader,and Swiss Crypto Token AG .

Most recently, Luzius founded Aktionariat, a company that is creating a set of tools for Swiss companies to create a market for their shares on their own website! That has huge disruption potential!

Luzius has an outstanding pedigree in the Bitcoin and crypto space, having jumped into this world in 2011. Luzius tells us a funny story about how he bought his first Bitcoin, in person at the Zürich main train station!

Luzius gives a fundamental breakdown of how Bitcoin came to be and some of the core mechanics of the technology, the "use cases" as well as some of the limitations. For anyone who would like to start to get their head around Bitcoin and crypto in general, this is a great foundation for you.

Luzius also tells us about the law he has been writing and advocating for in the Swiss Parliament. If passed, it will legalize full digitalization of shares. The ramifications would be tremendous for a wide variety of companies, especially small and medium corporations.

Aside from being a brilliant individual, Luzius is very kind and sincere. He has a great way of welcoming you into this conversation. I hope you will join me in "liking" and "sharing" this insightful and important podcast with your network! I am sure that Luzius would also love to hear from those of you interested in all his different ventures and lobbying work.

Luzius holds a master's degree in Computer Science from ETH Zurich and a master's degree in Economics from University of Zurich. Luzius can be contacted at luzius@meissereconomics.com
