It was the cryptocurrency battle heard ’round the world, as entrepreneur Alex Mashinsky took vociferous exception to the negative comments on digital currency made by Nouriel Roubini, the infamous “Dr. Doom” whose claim to fame is his prediction of the 2008 financial meltdown.

The battle took place at the recent Milken Institute 2018 Global Conference in Los Angeles, but the reverberations from the confrontation continue.

Mashinsky is a prominent Israeli-American entrepreneur who has founded several companies over the years, including GroundLink, Transit Wireless, Elematics and Arbinet. He has authored over 50 patents that cover aspects of the smart grid, ad exchanges, Twitter, Skype and more.

Most recently, he founded Celsius Network, a community-based proof-of-stake blockchain protocol designed to allow its members to borrow dollars against their crypto assets and to earn interest when they deposit (and lend) their crypto out.
