RT @laurashin: On Unchained, @alpackaP and @hosseeb talk about why Dragonfly Capital has a global focus, why Lightning hasn't yet taken off, why Ethereum is so far in the lead in smart contracts and why China's "blockchain, not crypto" emphasis is a dead end.

The thing about crypto that makes it so appealing to me as an investment vehicle is that we have the same level and quality of information as any other investor, since it's all public. The billionaire VC's might be more suited to make a sizable profit on crypto because of money they already have, but that doesn't mean we can't make money too. Hell, I'd wager most VC's diversified in crypto know LESS than the average browser of r/ethfinance or r/bitcoin
it's kinda public, but there are a lot of people trading on insider info, and engaging in many non-public activities that affect price. there are whales who pump & dump bitcoin & eth over & over during low volume times like this.. there are telegram groups where scams & borderline illegal shit is planned.. those things are all highly valuable info, and we don't know any of it.
I thought this interview was overall weak, but it provided insight into how people in the space think. The low point was the fallacy when one of the guests said when you aim for the king you better kill him - referring to Ethereum almost killing Bitcoin in 17 and then losing so much pricing ground since then. As if the current price is the reason for things to happen in the future. This is why I love this space. Experts deliver cash to nobodies.
I strongly disagree. It's painfully obvious that Laura Shin doesn't know what she's talking about and always seems to get confused on basic points which makes good follow up questions impossible.
For good insight content I would stick with PoV Crypto and Into the Ether where the discussions are interesting and the guests move the goal posts forward a bit.
I find both of them pretty boring the last half year. POV crypto has taken the lead.
This episode of Laura Shin was better than the horrible one with Kyle Samani but was till not very interesting. No new persoectives. Just VC’s telling where they have been wrong about in their past judgements with their ceypto investments. If I would be their LP I would seriously doubt why they would be right now..
They're boring because she hardly ever calls the guests out on claims or asks hard questions. She just lets them babble, it's basically a platform for the guest to shill their product as hard as they can for the whole duration of the podcast. One of the things the crypto space needs most currently is proper journalism and reporting. I haven't found any other good podcasts yet but will check out POV crypto, thanks for the tip.
what other podcasts, sites, etc do you trust? i got away from most all crypto news after the 2017 bubble, it all turned to garbage. laura shin's podcasts are pretty much the only thing i still listen to. also botje11 on tradingview is good.
The Breakdown with NLW, POV Crypto, Ledger Cast, Epicenter, Chorus One Podcast, Into the Ether. I listen to a bunch of crypto VC podcasts as well but in all honesty they are mostly noise over signal and often full of shit. I can't take them seriously when so many individual contributors have outperformed them in terms of community contribution and investment performance in their spare time.
