Naval Ravikant is a fascinating character.
Today he is recognised as the founder of AngelList, arguably the world’s leading crowdfunding platform. He is widely regarded a thought-leader in startup investing in general, and of late, an authority on Blockchain and the various cryptocurrencies it powers.
But there was a time not that long ago when Ravikant was a pariah of sorts in Silicon Valley.
Ravikant kicked up quite a storm in the year 2005, when he sued the VCs who invested in his startup. He was one of the founders of Epinions.com, an online review site that was acquired by eBay for more than $500 million.
