Investigating Richard Heart, HEX, and PulseX w/ Tom Gillespie
Show Notes

There are many people in the Bitcoin and crypto space who are scammed upon entry. It seems like people are naturally attracted to cheaper coins, with greater upside opportunity. A very popular altcoin  entitled 'HEX' has built a large community, and has seen very high returns on investment for its early adopters. The creator, Richard Heart, is one of the most controversial figures in crypto. Now, he is launching another project entitled PulseX. The project claims to have almost a billion dollars 'sacrificed' to it. 

On this episode, we interview Tom Gillespie, a disgruntled SCOOTERCOIN investor. Tom has taken aim at crypto scams through investigation and video documentary. When asked where to focus after his first documentary 'The FakeFluencer,' an overwhelming amount of people voted for his  investigation into HEX. On this episode, we seek truth on HEX, PulseX, and whether Richard Heart is legit, or on top of another high profile crypto scam.
