New York University professor and outspoken blockchain critic Nouriel Roubini unleashed another fiery tirade against cryptocurrencies in front of hundreds of crypto enthusiasts Wednesday -- and he wants everyone to know it.

The CEO of Roubini Macro Associates called on BitMEX CEO and co-founder Arthur Hayes in a Twitter post to release the video of a debate between the two, dubbed by the organizers as the “Tangle in Taipei,” at the Asia Blockchain Summit. Hayes controls the rights to the footage of the debate and didn’t allow it to be streamed live. The audience was also barred from recording video of the event.
