Starkiller Capital’s Leigh Drogen & Corey Hoffstein on Crypto Momentum, Conspiracies, GBTC, FTX, & More | #467
Today’s guests are Leigh Drogen, CIO of Starkiller Capital, which applies quantitative strategies to the blockchain based digital asset space, and Corey Hoffstein, co-founder of and CIO at Newfound Research, and a research partner and advisor to Starkiller.
In today’s episode, the guys update us on a wild year in crypto. We talk about the GBTC trade, the value of FTX bankruptcy claims, and even some conspiracy theories around Binance. Then we get into their recent paper, which looks at the momentum factor in crypto markets, and the benefit of using trend-following strategies within crypto to avoid drawdowns like the one we’ve seen in the last year.
As we wind down, the guys say if they think crypto is starting a new bull market.
