Vance Spencer of Framework was buying DeFi tokens when they were deeply unpopular. Deep conviction on DeFi, but he and his co-founder made bets on communities. He was contrarian yes…but contrarian right.

Ask him his strategy and he’ll simply tell you…”I look at memes all day.” But there’s hidden brilliance in that phase. Listen as he describes how he invests in the crypto native founders, how he buys culturally composable communities, how the best things start very small. 

His fund bought SNX when no on believed. They bought LINK when it was worth 18 cents. How? Why? What’s he buying now?

We end with some FIRE predictions on final market caps for this bull run.
