In the final part of this series, I want to cover why I believe every government will eventually own Bitcoin. If you would like to read the first three parts of this series you can click on the following links to why I believe the same will happen with every person, every company and every asset manager.

Let’s start with a simple fact. Numerous governments around the world already own Bitcoin. While we do not have a complete list of every government currently holding Bitcoin or the precise amount of those that are, there are a few pieces of public…

My last two posts covered why I believe we will see mass adoption of Bitcoin by individuals and corporations in the coming decades. You can read those posts here and here. In part three of this series, I’m going to cover why asset managers are already adopting Bitcoin and why this trend will only continue to accelerate in coming years.

2020 and 2021 will be remembered as the time when Bitcoin became widely adopted by institutional investors. Whereas the last bull run in 2017 was primarily fueled by retail investors, the recent increase in price has been driven much more…

My last post discussed why I believe we will see mass adoption of Bitcoin by the general public over the next couple decades. In this post, I want to dive into why I believe the same thing will happen with corporations.

Holding Bitcoin on the Balance Sheet

According to estimates from the Harvard Business Review, US non-financial corporations are sitting on over $4 trillion dollars in cash as of the start of 2020. This figure has nearly doubled over the last decade, which suggests the majority of large corporations are stockpiling cash for relatively long periods of time. The challenge…

The global financial system is in the midst of a transformation. While Satoshi’s whitepaper in 2008 will likely be considered the start of this transformation, I believe when we look back in thirty years, 2020 and 2021 will be seen as a catalyst that accelerated this change on a global level. The global pandemic forced governments to print money at record levels in order to provide support, which in turn has sparked conversations about the role of the Fed, the role inflation plays in contributing to wealth inequality and the power and weaponization of the dollar as the world reserve…

My last series of posts outlined a number of fundamental reasons why I’m bullish on the cryptocurrency industry beyond just price appreciation. I purposely left out the “Store of Value” in that series because that is only a single use case among many for this technology and I wanted to cover more than just Bitcoin. However, Bitcoin is by far the largest crypto asset and holding it as a store of value has become the dominant narrative. As such, I wanted to dedicate an entire post to this topic. I know a lot has been written about this topic. …

In part four of this series I am going to cover how crypto will accelerate automation. If you would like to read the other three parts you can do so here, here and here.

Over the last several years, we have become increasingly comfortable with software running a greater portion of our daily lives. We trust software to match us with romantic partners (dating apps), we trust software to direct us where to go (Google Maps & Waze), and we trust software to invest our money (robo advisors). But that’s just the tip of the iceberg. …

In part three of this series I am going to cover how crypto introduces a new business model. If you would like to read the other three parts you can do so here, here and here.

The biggest economic disruptions in history happen when a technological innovation is coupled with a business model innovation. Take a look at the biggest tech companies today. Apple not only made the iPod and iPhone (tech innovations) they pioneered iTunes and later the app store (business model innovation) that disrupted the music industry and the phone industry. Google wasn’t first to build web search…

In part two of this series I am going to cover Digital Scarcity. If you would like to read the other three parts you can do so here, here and here.

The physical realm has many examples of scarcity. Gold is relatively scarce compared to most other metals. Collectibles are valuable because they are rare or one of a kind. Real Estate is mostly limited by land that already exists and the inability to create new land.

However, that has not been historically true in the digital realm. If I send you a photo, it’s pretty trivial for you to…

Bitcoin and Ethereum have once again increased in value rather significantly in a short amount of time. Bitcoin has hit new all-time highs in price and Defi burst onto the scene this year with record levels of adoption. Over the next several months, I suspect people will cover Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies because of the price swings. Don’t get me wrong, Bitcoin’s store of value use case is stronger than ever. …

In my last post, I discussed why entrepreneurs should send a deck to a VC before they meet with them. What I didn’t describe is what materials a founder should send ahead of time versus what materials they should use when meeting with investors in person or over Zoom.

I typically advise entrepreneurs to build two versions of their pitch decks, one to send ahead of time and one that you present with. Your goal when sending materials ahead of time is different from your goal when using a deck during a meeting. Different objectives require different decks.

Let’s start…
