Public Aggregation ChannelDecember 22, 2021
One of the youngest general partners in crypto VC, Richard Chen at 1confirmation, joins DeFi Dad, head of marketing and portfolio support at Fourth Revolution Capital (4RC), to discuss his journey through crypto. 1confirmation touts an impressive list of financial backers, including Peter Thiel and Mark Cuban, and has demonstrated prescient use of client funds with early investments in Polkadot, OpenSea, and Coinbase. Chen discusses the investment thesis which led to such ludicrous returns, emphasizing the importance of picking a small number of companies with high conviction, the strategy of the highly successful Stan Druckenmiller. DeFi Dad and Chen reflect on the recent bull run in crypto, how the industry has changed drastically since 2017, and what may be in store for the near future. Recorded on December 9, 2021.

Crypto's Fate Is Tied to Old School Finance
There's a narrative in the crypto space that digital assets are uncorrelated to other markets. In fact, the opposite is true. Francis Hunt returns to analyze Bitcoin's price action relative to forex markets, bonds, and U.S. equities. We could see a brief rally, but we're still in a "risk-off environment," says Hunt. "Do not become overly aggressive to the bullish side. People are going to call this bottom one cycle too soon." But it's not all doom and gloom from The Market Sniper. Hunt believes Federal Reserve policy is driving U.S. dollar strength, so he's trading the greenback. He walks Real Vision's Ash Bennington through his forex trades, noting that forex markets have been "the new crypto markets." Recorded on May 17, 2022.
