Episode 2

A Safe Haven - Insane Risk, The Chicago Plan and Safer Money and Payments

Summary & Key Takeaways

Dan Morehead is one the leading macro investors in the blockchain space and Founder and CEO of Pantera Capital. Dan brings some of the deepest global macro chops to the table — formally CFO and Head of Macro for Tiger Management, Global Head of Foreign Exchange for Deutsche Bank and started his career as a trader at Goldman Sachs. Dan (and Pantera's) most recent Investor Letter has sparked incredible interest in the past week. Take a read here.

Dan will provide his global macro perspective, and help to give context on the insane levels of risk facing the global financial system, while also discussing the incredible potential of 100% Full Reserve Money.

From there, we'll take the conversation deeper into history with CSU Professor Ronnie Phillips, author of The Chicago Plan and New Deal Banking Reform, an incredible narrative on the attempt (and failure) by the world's leading economic thinkers to establish a safer financial system during the depths of the Great Depression. Highly relevant to today's emerging economic landscape, and critical in understanding some of the fundamentals of digital currency and stablecoins.

Finally, Dragonfly Capital's Haseeb Qureshi will join the show to talk about some of the basic tenants behind blockchain based infrastructure for safety, security and trust in a world filled with insane risk. Hasseb is one of the sharpest minds in the space, and one of the earliest to help articulate the concept of stablecoins in an accessible way.
