On the surface, Numerai is a crowdsourced and tokenized hedge fund. Below the surface, it's a decentralized truth machine pointing the way to general Artificial Intelligence. They recently released performance metrics for the first time, showing that Numerai outperforms other market neutral hedge funds by 29%.
I talk with Numerai founder Richard Craib about finance and truth, the regulation of crypto, how to raise money for crazy ideas, how to persist on crazy ideas, the future of artificial intelligence, and how to overthrow the Elite Gerontocracy.
