Episode: #27
August 24, 2020

Haseeb Qureshi likes the question: what did I miss? That’s how he improves his mental model for investing in crypto. That’s how he sharpens his mind. 

That’s how this former Airbnb developer and professional poker play became a notable investor at DragonFly Capital.

And that’s where we start the conversation.

It leads us into a discussion on Uniswap and automated market makers, and why he thinks Uniswap will be unbundled. Which leads into Ethereum scaling, DeFi in Eth2, and an articulation of the clearest analogy for DeFi scalability in Etheruem that we’ve ever heard.

Use this episode to sharpen your crypto investing mind.
