26 – Investing in DeFi Paradigms | Charlie Noyes

What are the paradigms for investing in DeFi?

Charlie is an exceptionally bright & thoughtful investor in crypto assets at Paradigm…one of the leading investment firms in the crypto space. We talk institutions, yield farming, and DeFi protocols…and then we get into one of our favorite subjects.

Is ETH money?

Or rather, does ETH need to be money in order to secure itself?

What is dirty little secret many Ethereans and Bitcoiners don’t admit? Why is moneyness and security two sides of the same coin? Why won’t transaction fees secure Bitcoin?

This episode goes from great…to amazing. You won’t find this depth of discussion anywhere else. Stay tuned to the very end to catch the conversation on economic security.

We cover:

Starting in crypto at age 11
Gen Z and crypto
How Institutions see crypto
Futility tokens are futile
Is Uniswap the last word on AMMs?
RAI vs DAI
Money gams & accounting tricks
Yield farming for yield farming sake
Why we’re not in a bubble yet
Why Ether has to be money (or bust)
Cosmos and Ethereum alternatives
Not bullish on Eth2 timeline
Join us next Monday for a fresh episode!
