Episode: #26 - Investing in DeFi Paradigms
August 18th, 2020
What are the paradigms for investing in DeFi?
Charlie is an exceptionally bright & thoughtful investor in crypto assets at Paradigm...one of the leading investment firms in the crypto space. We talk institutions, yield farming, and DeFi protocols...and then we get into one of our favorite subjects.
Is ETH money?
Or rather, does ETH need to be money in order to secure itself?
What is dirty little secret many Ethereans and Bitcoiners don't admit? Why is moneyness and security two sides of the same coin? Why won't transaction fees secure Bitcoin?
This episode goes from great...to amazing. You won't find this depth of discussion anywhere else. Stay tuned to the very end to catch the conversation on economic security.
