Tegan Kline, business lead at The Graph, welcomes Kyle Samani, managing partner at Multicoin Capital, to discuss his background in crypto, the development of Multicoin Capital, and his future outlook for the crypto space. Samani shares the origins of Multicoin Capital and the core theses driving their crypto investments—open finance, Web3, and the opportunity for non-sovereign money. He argues that Web 3 allows entrepreneurs to develop self-sovereign platforms and move away from relying on the infrastructure of big tech firms. Samani also presents his viewpoint on the advantages and disadvantages of increasingly centralized blockchains and their impact on Ethereum, and he contends that new chains should strive to maintain a degree of centralization that allows them to remain credibly neutral. Filmed on May 25, 2021. Key Learnings: Samani describes the thought process behind Multicoin Captial’s innovative investments. To find these investments and build a career in crypto, he states that the investor should be passionate about crypto and possess a willingness to try. More importantly, investors should read, learn, and think about new protocols in order to generate a unique source of alpha.
