#81: Astrid Woollard and Christian Niedermüller - The Future of Investments in Digital Assets
Play • 1 hr 27 min

What is happening in all things digital assets, cryptocurrencies, NFTs, and alike? The market crashed. Is it all over now? 

Investing with experts is always the best idea when investing in new areas. This episode was recorded in February 2022, and I am happy that I had the chance to speak with two experts in digital assets from Austria:

Astrid Woollard and Christian Niedermüller, SMAPE Capital

Astrid is the CIO of Smape Capital. Their slogan is: We invest beyond mission-driven tokenized economies. She is also working as an independent consultant in
digitalization, digital business models, blockchain technology applications,
and IP strategy

Christian Niedermüller has been 15+ years in banking/traditional finance in very challenging roles, but finally went full time into the DLT/Blockchain and digital asset universe after being 6+ years massively involved anyway.

Topics we discuss in this episode:

  • Smape Capital
  • Satoshi Nakamoto 
  • NFTs
  • DAOs 
  • The Metaverse and 
  • Much much more
