The Man with the Billion Dollar Ether Staking Bet

Public Aggregation ChannelJanuary 13, 2022
Andrew Keys, co-founder and managing partner at DARMA Capital, is as bullish as they come on Ethereum. He believes Ethereum will soon become the basis for the global economy, and he wants to be responsible for helping to facilitate this. “I want to be part of the solution,” Keys says when asked why he doesn’t park his capital with a more traditional interest bearing vehicle. Tired of a system by which the masses must rely on a few global conglomerates as the brokers of trust, Keys and his team at DARMA would like to see such economic activity determined by an impersonal and objective arbiter. His passion palpable, he shares his plans to decentralize the globe, which include building the largest staking pool in the world. Interviewed by Ash Bennington on January 5, 2022.

An Options Trader Shares Crypto Market Insights
Volatility in the crypto market has always been elevated relative to old-school markets. But, in the aftermath of the Three Arrows Capital and Celsius meltdowns, it’s been particularly brutal.

Former Fed Economist Turned Private Market Investor Talks Inflation and Crypto
Bitcoin (and cryptocurrency generally) often has been called a long-term inflation hedge. Over the last few months, however, soaring inflation (and central banks’ efforts to counter it) has been a major driver of broad losses across the crypto market. Indeed, the U.S. dollar’s purchasing power against Bitcoin has been in an uptrend for the better part of 2022, inviting skepticism of the “inflation hedge” narrative. Joe Zhao, a former economist at the Federal Reserve and a current partner at venture fund Millennia Capital, joins Real Vision Senior Crypto Editor Ash Bennington to share insights into how the Fed makes policy and to explain why he believes all asset prices are correlated. Zhao also forecasts the stock market’s performance for the balance of 2022 and into 2023 – noting that stock-market performance will be a good gauge of Bitcoin’s trajectory. The Fed’s efforts to control inflation mean this year and next are for recovery. But, according to Zhao, we’ll start to see growth again in 2024. Recorded on July 1, 2022.
What Zero-Knowledge Proof Means to Web3 (It's Big!)
The cryptographic protocol of proving and validating information without the prover revealing any additional information – known as zero-knowledge proof (ZKP) – is the key to securing and growing Web3 and the metaverse. That’s according to Thomas Walton-Pocock, the founder of Geometry, a research and investment firm focused on projects that leverage deep mathematics, cryptography, and engineering to drive Web3’s growth. Walton-Pocock joins Santiago Velez, co-founder and division lead of R&D at Block Digital, to talk about why privacy and scalability are the top considerations right now. He explains the longer-term, bigger-picture implications of its widespread deployment. And he notes that more crypto developers, users, and traders than ever are paying attention to ZKP right now. Recorded on June 28, 2022.
