This is an episode of The Pomp Podcast with host Anthony “Pomp” Pompliano and guest, Will Clemente and Checkmate. Will is a Finance Major at East Carolina University. He has quickly become one of my favorite writers on all things bitcoin, including deep dives on various onchain analytics. We are joined this week by Checkmate, an analyst from Glassnode, who focuses full-time on onchain metrics.
