After the convo, Joey said we asked the best questions of any podcast he’s been on. Maybe it felt that way because we we’re speaking the same language: this DeFi is eating the world.

This is Investing in DeFi with Joey Krug.

We cover:

– Joey’s investment thesis for crypto
– How to invest in DeFi
– Yield farming a gimmick?
– Is AMPL for real?
