The Global Impact of Bitcoin Education

Real Vision crypto editor Ash Bennington welcomes Cory Klippsten, founder of Swan Bitcoin, to discuss his journey into crypto, the founding of Swan Bitcoin, Bitcoin education, the development of layer 2 solutions and beyond, and how Bitcoin can help or harm the world. Since leaving Google in 2013, Klippsten has spent his time operating in Silicon Valley, working with startups to advise and raise capital through seed A and B stages. It was through tech and these connections that he found Bitcoin in 2017. Through his evaluation, Klippsten found that the Bitcoin project was sound and worth building his own company, Swan Bitcoin, to help others safe, easily, and quickly enter the space. Swan Bitcoin encourages self-custody and education into the space. Klippsten views Bitcoin as the third leg of the stool in one's "set it and forget it" wealth building plan with the first two being a 401K and a mortgage. According to Klippsten, by creating a baseline of automatic reoccurring purchases, auto dollar-cost averaging (DCA) or, as he calls it, getting paid in Bitcoin, is a great way to build a solid foundation for oneself. Filmed April 29, 2021. Key Learnings: It is clear to Klippsten that Bitcoin is the new global money. If Bitcoin’s market cap continues to rise, Klippsten predicts that more and more people will hold their wealth in Bitcoin. Where there is friction going back and forth between bitcoin and traditional units of exchange over the next 10 years, it will eventually become easier to exclusively transact in bitcoin. Further, Klippsten believes that Bitcoin holders will be much more comfortable spending bitcoin once the expectation of its meteoric rise begins to taper. Once it reaches a $20 trillion market cap, which he expects over the next decade, this shift will occur, and by 2035, most goods and services will be able to be purchased with Bitcoin globally. Klippsten identifies that there is a direct line between one's understanding of Bitcoin and how much a user is willing to allocate their assets to it. It is through education that Klippsten feels Bitcoin and its usage will continue to grow.

dYdX: Building the Future of DEX Margin Trading
Ash Bennington, senior crypto editor for Real Vision, hosts Antonio Juliano, founder of dYdX, to discuss dYdX, decentralized exchanges (DEXs), regulations, risk management, and the future of the space. After becoming interested in the idea of blockchain as a whole computing paradigm via Ethereum rather than as a system for payments, investment, or store of value like the Bitcoin model, Juliano became invested in building a search engine for decentralized apps. With limited success, he became drawn to the advent of DEXs. To him, this idea seemed like the natural progression of decentralized finance, and Juliano surmised that the next level to the decentralized stack would be more advanced financial products including margin trading and derivatives, prompting the creation of dYdX. Filmed May 13th, 2021. Key Learnings: Most crypto exchanges have centralized operations—this creates opportunities for assets to being hackable, leading to hundreds of millions of dollars being stolen over the years. DEXs prevent this by allowing the user to retain custody and pull funds immediately if necessary. With dYdX, the DEX also solves for transparency which allows for the rules, past performance, and volatility of the exchange to be encoded into smart contracts, allowing for the system to "bootstrap trust". Juliano believes that with these systems, which are global in nature, can bypass traditional jurisdictions and will allow for users to easily and effectively trade at more advanced levels typically reserved for private banks and hedges.
CryptoEq: Building Trust at Scale for Digital Asset Research
Santiago Velez, entrepreneur and digital assets investor for Block Digital Corporation & AD, Inc., sits down with Spencer Randall, principal and co-founder of CryptoEq, to discuss CryptoEq, market cycles, blue chips, and future staying power. Randall saw the need to have a community to discuss digital assets as he felt that education around the crypto space was and still is done in a silo and that the value from the digital assets space could be better derived by breaking down the barriers to communication. With CryptoEq, Randall’s goal is to provide a forum for individuals with different life experiences and views to have a space where those thoughts and ideas can collide. In Randall's own words, "Community brings faster collisions, more innovation, more discovery, more learning." Filmed on April 11, 2021. Key Learnings: With the volume of information out there on digital assets, how do you distill it and make it easy for the end user to cut through all the noise or misinformation and get started in the space? CryptoEq aims to be the north star for digital assets, focusing on research and market insights, to allow for users to not only learn about crypto faster, but responsibly. With CryptoEq's focus on fundamental and sentiment analysis as well as enter and exit strategies, Randall believes individuals who want to enter the crypto space can do so with ease and find trust at scale.
Why Bitcoin Will Green the Planet
Mustafa Yilham, VP of Global Business Development at Bixin; Meltem Demirors, chief strategy officer for CoinShares; Caroline Cochran, co-founder and chief operating officer of Oklo; and Whit Gibbs, founder and CEO of Compass Mining discuss how Bitcoin will ultimately prove a net positive for the greening of the planet. Given recent comments from individuals such as Elon Musk on their concerns over Bitcoin's adverse affects on the environment, the Real Vision Crypto team felt that it would be only proper to present our audience with an alternative viewpoint. Filmed live on March 24, 2021 at Real Vision's Crypto Gathering.
