#13: Light and Su Zhu on the Art of Trading
1 hr 25 min

Today, I sat down with Su Zhu, who is the CEO and CIO of Three Arrows Capital, as well as LightCrypto. 

Light is a real crypto OG and one of the largest and most successful prop traders in this space. 

We’ve known each other for two years now and I have tremendous respect for his skill and clarity of thought. He’s usually very secretive, so we are thankful that he has recorded his first-ever interview with us. In this conversation, we go very deep into the process and mindset of trading, as well as Su and Light’s current views on the market and how they are positioned going forward. 

My name is Hasu, and I’m a researcher, investor, and writer.

NYSE vice chairman: Talks are 'accelerating' with crypto firms that want to go public
Despite the uncertainty of the global economy in 2020, the New York Stock Exchange has had a strong year, helping companies raise more than $66 billion.  In many respects, it has been the year of Special Purpose Acquisition Companies (SPACs), according to vice chairman John Tuttle. This year, firms have raised billions through the acquisition-style mechanism. During this episode of The Scoop, Tuttle — who previously led NYSE's global listings business — explained why the fundraising method has taken the markets by storm and how they've evolved from a lackluster funding mechanism to a red-hot fad on Wall Street.  "Let's look back ten years or so, SPACs were a four letter word, they didn't have the best reputation, the sponsors didn't necessarily have the best interest in mind of investors in the market place," Tuttle said. He went on to explain: "And they largely fell out of favor. Several years ago you started seeing some rule changes around SPACs to address some of those challenges that SPACs had a decade or so ago and you started seeing higher qualities sponsors come into market.What do I mean by that? Folks that—whether it be the Goldman Sachs or the Gores Groups of the world. Folks that had very well-respected reputations in the marketplace both as financial partners but business partners as well too. You started seeing deals be larger in size. You started see well respected names launch SPACs and partner with SPACs and partner with SPACs, and that's what gave credibility to the product." Indeed, some crypto firms have been considering SPAC-centric strategies, including BlockFi and Ripple. There's also firms like Coinbase, which is said to be in the process of going public in the near-term, as previously reported by Reuters.  Tuttle says that the exchange group is talking with crypto firms about tapping into public markets.  "It has been a space that's been of interest for quite some time," he said. "We've had discussion with companies that have been thinking about accessing the public market, from that space, crypto blockchain digital assets." "Those conversations continue, they're accelerating," he added. "And I also think that digital assets, crypto are going to play somehow somewhere some way an important role in the market of the future." _________________________________ This episode was brought to you by Polkadot Decoded, the Polkadot community conference on December the 3rd.

Robbie Heeger: Endaoment’s Donor-Advised Funds Enable Crypto Charitable Donations For 1.5M Organizations
Chain Reaction Host Tom Shaughnessy hosts Robbie Heeger, the CEO and President of Endaoment. Endaoment is a new Community Foundation & public charity offering Donor-Advised Funds (DAFs) built atop the Ethereum blockchain, allowing you to donate to almost any U.S. nonprofit organization. Every Delphi Podcast is dropped first as a video interview for Delphi Digital Subscribers. Our members also have access to full interview transcripts. Join today to get our interviews, first. Show Notes: Broad Topics: * Educate about DAFs and how they work. * Share process of opening a DAF with Endaoment. * Discuss why DAFs can be advantageous. * Talk about Endaoment’s origin, mission and vision. * Share about future roadmap and long term vision for the technology behind Endaoment. * Discuss the charitable/philanthropic space inside of the crypto/defi industry. Endaoment Background & Roadmap: * Created by Robbie Heeger in 2019 originally as hacking project as I was teaching myself to code. * Recieved 501(c)(3) – the first public charity on chain – in June 2020. * Released MVP DAF product in October 2020, audited by Open Zeppelin. * Built to be a DAF that is powered by smart contracts. * Accepts over 135 different ethereum assets + ETH. * Lowest cost, lowest donation minimum DAF provider in US. * Built atop Uniswap’s open source front end, Gidestar API + USDC API. * Enables giving to 1.5 million + US organizations. * Consider our current DAF product an MVP of what’s possible using Ethereum/DeFi to power charitable giving * Down the road, User will choose either giving to Pooled Capital Community Fund (Endaoment Community Fund) or to an individual Endaoment DAF. * Endaoment Community Fund to be the first DAO powered Community Foundation & Endowment Fund where token holders choose investment allocations across yield farming strategies in DeFi, grant awards to nonprofits and select Endaoment policies and board members using tokens. * Looking to bring those same investment options to the individual Endaoment DAF as well, without the same token based voting weights. DAF History/Background: * Donor Advised Funds are charitable accounts owned and managed by a public charity. * Allows a donor to donate an asset to charity without selling it first. * Over 750k DAFs in the US. * Fastest-growing method to give to charity in the united states in 2019. * Over 120 BN in DAF assets in the US. * DAFs can be controversial … many people park assets there, take the deduction and let it sit. Many people think DAF capital should more quickly flow into communities. Crypto Giving Landscape Background: * Several large DAF providers accept “blue chip” crypto, but no long tail of tokens. * Most crypto giving platforms either are crowdfunding derivatives, public goods funding projects, or going one organization at a time to support giving. * Many community foundations in the US are still running off paper checks and desire to modernize their financial infrastructure but are intimidated by crypto. * Many organizations are intrigued by crypto but scared away by the fluctuation in value and unknowns about custodianship…delivering grants in USD is prime concern.

This episode is a discussion from Stellar's Meridian conference, in which I moderated the panel, Crypto on Every Corner: Driving Adoption, featuring Jeremy Allaire, cofounder, chairman and CEO of Circle, and Meltem Demirors, chief strategy officer at CoinShares. In this discussion, we cover: * what adoption means and looks like * why cryptocurrency is at a particularly interesting inflection point * how central bank digital currencies could affect that * how blockchains will recede into the background * how existing fintech payment apps will use blockchains and/or crypto * where on the road to adoption the industry currently is * the significance of Crypto Twitter as a marketing tool * what the crypto industry needs to do in the next year to grow the industry * why it would have been easier to start a bank than a crypto business * why the separation of money and state is one of the most interesting experiments in history * how we'll see new corporate-like organizations without any connections to any existing legal or financial systems driven by tokens * what their favorite crypto adoption success story is Thank you to our sponsors!

The Blockchain Detective - Taking on elite cybercriminals & owning them
Richard Sanders is a co-founder and lead investigator at CipherBlade, an elite blockchain investigation agency that works closely with top crypto exchanges, blockchain protocols, and the FBI. The agency uses a potent mix of on-chain and off-chain analytics and investigative techniques to track the most sophisticated cybercriminals on the planet. Guest: Richard Sanders Why you should listen: Richard Sanders and his team at CipherBlade are the 911 that the blockchain industry calls for cryptocurrency scam and hack investigations. Richard says “We'd prefer it if people came to us before they get hacked, rather than after they get hacked. We provide security audits for exchanges and high net worth individuals and can provide extensive training for companies and individuals.” Blockchain investigators use a variety of tools that allow them to visualize the blockchain. A block explorer does something similar, the difference with professional tools is they take those visualizations to the next level and significantly increases the information and attribution that can be analyzed. Richard says he is also adept at off-chain investigative skills. “Social engineering is a good example of this. I pretended to be a female gamer on Discord and that helped me identify one of the Ian Balina scammers. At the end of the day, the blockchain is the best source of data, if you can follow a set of transactions to a KYCed account on an exchange, that is the best place to start. There are some elements on the psyops side that can come into play. For example, you might look at indicators of behavior. If a person of interest has a history of speeding tickets and gambling, then those would be red flags, just as an example.” Key takeaway: Richard describes himself as a Realistic-Libertarian-Contrarian-Cyborg. Despite his intensive military background and strong working relationship with the FBI, Rich is also a cryptocurrency advocate, a staunch supporter of Monero, and a passionate believer in privacy. Richard says “I love the idea of privacy by default. As a realist, I understand that there will be an increase in diligence on people using crypto platforms and if you're making deposits you'll need to explain your source of funds. Monero has never tried to advertise using Monero for nefarious purposes. They don't need to. Privacy is a strong enough use case for adoption in and of itself. The question is, how do we have privacy by default but in the interests of public safety? We need to have this conversation as an industry so we can figure this out before governments are forced to do it for us.” The range of scammers and bad actors in the blockchain ecosystem runs the full gamut from the lowest to the highest basket of sophistication. The least sophisticated is Twitter and Telegram impersonation scammers, often based out of Nigeria. Many of these scammers don’t use VPNs, they don't always use mixers and sometimes they use direct deposit addresses for exchanges. At the other end of the scale, you have Lazarus, a very sophisticated hacking group out of North Korea that uses sophisticated mixing and crypto hopping techniques. What scammers have in common is they play on human greed, stupidity, and laziness. Richard says a significant portion of the industry is in it for the money. “There's a meme that says I'm in it for the technology but come on. It's fine to want to make money, but it gives people an unrealistic impression that crypto is a way to get rich quick and this makes them more vulnerable to these scams where people promise high returns.” It’s not just scammers that are having a negative effect on the industry. When considering the broader topic of crypto exchanges - think about what the perception is of our industry is from the outside. Exchanges get hacked left and right, scams abound, and there is a lax level of KYC and AML. Critics of crypto like to say that Bitcoin is only used for illegal activity, and while in the industry we know that is not true, it doesn't help to combat that narrative when exchanges get hacked and don't do enough to stop engaging with transactions from bad actors. In less than half an hour, Richard was able to identify several OKEx deposit addresses that received deposits from addresses associated with darknet markets. Any exchange with a simple compliance tool would pick these transactions up. Compliance professionals at compliant exchanges have access to know your transaction (KYT) tools. These tools show sending and receiving exposures, and break these down by category. If a transaction comes from a darknet market, the tool will identify this. These tools are not expensive for an exchange, they are usually charged by volume, so they are affordable for exchanges but out of the reach of individuals.

Read_467 - Bitcoin Doesn't Rely on Utilities [Rollo McFloogle]
"But there is something even more interesting that happens with mining and electricity. Not only does Bitcoin mining add revenue to existing locations of energy production, but it also makes other previously unprofitable energy sources profitable." - Rollo McFloogle A Guest post from both a patron to the show and host of the Rollo & Slappy Show, we dive into a Bitcoin Magazine piece by Rollo McFloogle. Often when you talk about Bitcoin as a future money, people attack back with the claim that it "doesn't work without electricity!" This is obviously true, but exactly how much should this matter to us, and what is the risk to the Bitcoin network really? Maybe they are just an idiot, like Grum... hear all about it in today's article, "Bitcoin Does Not Rely on Utilities."

Ethereum 2.0: What You Need to Know - Ep.201
Ryan Watkins and Wilson Withiam, senior research analysts at Messari, explain the nuts and bolts of Ethereum 2.0, including how it will transform ETH as an asset and why they believe it will be Ethereum’s most ambitious upgrade yet. Topics include: * the different phases of Ethereum 2.0 and the functions they serve * the problems Ethereum hopes to solve with this upgrade * the technical requirements needed to ensure the launch can happen * the new proof of stake consensus and why Ethereum is leaving proof of work behind * the requirements necessary to maintain a validator node on the Ethereum 2.0 network * why users won’t be able to use their ETH once it is staked on Ethereum 2.0 * the incentives and services that will allow users staking on Ethereum 2.0 to continue using their ETH on Ethereum 1.0 * whether the appeal of DeFi is a threat to Ethereum 2.0 staking * how Ethereum 2.0 incentivizes client diversity * the monetary policy of “minimum necessary issuance” that supports Ethereum 2.0 * how Ethereum 2.0 will allow ETH to achieve the unprecedented combination of a store of value, a capital asset, and a commodity * what will be done in the short term to help ease the scaling problem while ETH 2.0 is being built * whether scalability can be efficiently addressed in time to prevent migrations to other blockchains * and the most significant risks Ethereum 2.0 is facing Thank you to our sponsor!
