Ash Bennington, senior crypto editor for Real Vision, sits down with James Bianco, president of Bianco Research, to discuss his view of the financial markets, DAOs, macro strategies, regulation, and the role of government in the economy. When he began looking into Bitcoin and Ethereum in 2017, Bianco did not see much utility for these new assets. However, during the crypto winter of 2018-2019, Bianco noticed the rise of DeFi and saw last summer how these new emerging rails were being built as a parallel financial system. Bianco sees this new system as 1.0, "the Wild West," but more innovation will come. To him, DeFi is headed toward the creation of a whole new financial system. Filmed May 17th, 2021. Key Insights: Bianco states that volatility is part of any emerging technology—investors, regardless of experience, should understand that high-growth, tech companies go through "boom and bust" cycles all the time. For crypto, Bianco advises that it’s critical to separate the concept from the protocol. When choosing what to invest in, he urges investors to consider, "Is this concept too early? Does the system have longevity? What research has been done?" This will be paramount to understanding the future of the space and, by extension, will open the door for users from all generations and technical prowess to enter. Show More
