section of me i hear resume i go away you should be as i've
00:00:04
explained it cost i do weddings grills monitors i do all of that
00:00:08
and actually it well don for making it through luncheon being back here
00:00:13
um my name is alexander clan they've foolishly asked me to
00:00:17
moderate this panel so the paddles thinks they know
00:00:20
the questions i'm gonna ah okay yeah but actually before i go into that i just want to say
00:00:26
full q. last to smart val are all gonna and the team it's marvellous for putting this on this is your first one of these
00:00:38
okay so now now to the topic
00:00:42
starting with someone who i i wouldn't say how long we've known each other which it because it would
00:00:48
be giving away a little too much but the last awesome boom and bust does come to mind
00:00:55
and so you got a good viewpoint about investing across that time period
00:01:00
and so actually when you think about the time line you know of of the
00:01:04
transition of an investor starting from twenty years ago so i do today um
00:01:09
what does it look like and especially with a view on risk have you seen it evolved
00:01:16
so maybe start with the first time you either took all made an investment right the way through to now
00:01:22
gosh i'm so that was back in nineteen ninety five and um
00:01:30
so i was twenty three the time and i was a building a company my uh brother charlie so we were uh we would
00:01:36
trying to build some piece of the internet um uh as
00:01:40
it was being constructed then and we built a uh
00:01:44
service activation software for networks made of browsers as they used to call them in that
00:01:50
in america and um it was i mean it was incredible uh experience obviously
00:01:56
that age and uh it gives me a lot of respect and indeed
00:02:00
uh attraction towards a entrepreneurs of that particular a vintage and um
00:02:07
we got the opportunity to be involved in uh you know the
00:02:12
i. t. f. the internet engineering possible so the time and
00:02:16
try to participate a little bit in the setting the standards around quality of service and security and
00:02:21
social first hand that process all the involvement of the companies like cisco intel and so forth
00:02:27
so that was the expansion we ended up having um actually to to really the
00:02:32
point five a company we live here in june two thousand um and
00:02:37
reaches the end of two thousand and one point four billion dollar market cassie
00:02:40
that was the i. p. of yes that was saying um and
00:02:47
i doubt i must say was put domain on the back
00:02:49
of um a a great story a rising tide a
00:02:54
product that was being bored by the magic areas in telecom service providers and grow revenue growth but um
00:03:00
uh i would say that the pretty kind of eye watering multiples on
00:03:03
the on the on the revenue to to market calf but um
00:03:08
and out often issue that that to me in relation to i see those um
00:03:14
i actually try to stop us do not live here at the time
00:03:18
um i felt that there was a more methodical approach to building a company that
00:03:24
actually uh you know you have to do with the coding on the
00:03:26
product the value proposition and the the cultures of the company and so forth
00:03:30
and he is possible to uh getting way ahead of yourselves and
00:03:35
and and think that is just about being equip just walking going that way so
00:03:38
that can be obtained or something it want to watch out for but going
00:03:41
back to your question um the uh it was extremely hard we took money
00:03:48
from individual angels will predominate lays we took money from one house uh
00:03:52
is pretty famous yeah but there's now and i'm in the u. k. she but he was a view
00:03:57
exception to the rule and we do my from esther dyson in the states but other than that
00:04:02
the venture capital scene in europe was still thinking about risk
00:04:07
management and minimisation rather than thinking about risk maximise nation which is
00:04:12
where does got it now we're so gonna come back to
00:04:14
risk maximise nation because i think that i feel that way perfecting that in some ways with the i. c. uh
00:04:21
that room but we'll come back to all the can i just say that
00:04:23
i loved your presentation on the time line was really ideas what all's
00:04:28
exercise yeah it's nice to do something like that but more about that because it is the history of investing that i think that it's
00:04:35
quite interesting to especially from say swiss context yeah well you know a a
00:04:41
history of investing would be too long to cover in thirty minutes
00:04:45
um what particularly excited about us what's going on now i remember uh
00:04:52
when was it like two thousand fifty ah just two years ago
00:04:57
i would say to him you know his man says 'cause ours foul yeah for example we were sitting
00:05:02
here in britain offices family offices said they were beach and
00:05:06
clay might people should they were kind of polite thereof
00:05:13
look like they were no questions no actually it was
00:05:18
like completely dead air play great to erase it
00:05:25
oh really then this is there is a very very yeah i mean i don't know how many people you
00:05:31
can we sheepish but also requires maturity yeah but it
00:05:38
is the right one or two hands says it
00:05:41
best actually you know for me like some some crazy acts
00:05:44
you know who's investing in something that some code
00:05:47
rating uh says that's mace in in these in evolution and the religion is of course continuing and
00:05:54
i i it we can't go i mean you briefly mentioned in your talk about work that
00:05:58
you did with zappa and thing but but i can't let it go by because
00:06:02
that's a huge building block for switzerland in that
00:06:07
it means that anyone that goes to meet women now they're gonna know what a token is and they understand that actually or
00:06:13
developing the capacity in it so that was important work in
00:06:17
the industry but then let's phosphor to now right and
00:06:21
doesn't it's level thirty nine like that was the the probably the first side that we that say i let me ask
00:06:26
you the question that you probably would expect is easy to remove the right weapon of choice of ah yeah
00:06:33
so uh for those of you who don't know me i've uh what are the co founders of ethereal actually
00:06:37
i was like i did with a shorter that's that so i had to fly out live with the
00:06:41
high end is you back and twenty fourteen and we were the very first people to actually talk about purple
00:06:47
currencies uh we uh we're enemy apart first script occurrence apply uh i think it's all they do
00:06:54
by the way is if you're in the right platform so the way i think
00:06:56
of that question is let's look at an analogy so what's over the internet
00:07:01
or do we start we start with t. c. p. i. p. so that kind of
00:07:04
like a standard for moving information so that crypt the current technologies big point
00:07:09
as a standard for moving valued uproot you could do it then what came
00:07:13
next the web browser this was the standard the platforms as actually
00:07:16
allowed you to get on and do something useful with the system that's a theory on a certain respect but any competing standards there
00:07:23
what came after the web browser you have the amazons the google e.
00:07:26
bay's all these big businesses that are consumers of that stack
00:07:30
so similarly now we have this ability to represent value in a very complex way
00:07:36
and we're saying nice yellows and all these business models instrumented innovation that's occurring
00:07:41
this does not necessarily me appearing in per se you can use pretty much any platform with
00:07:46
equivalent capabilities right now there's gonna be tremendous competition what matters are the standards what
00:07:52
matters is having standards are used and of all over time applying that standard of your
00:07:57
c. twenty as token anyway so so so for example the syrian classic has no
00:08:02
role in any of this well we have your three to two three and the uh we also support your c. twenty for example
00:08:09
but there's you know at many ways you could represent value your c. twenty allows you to create token but there's a story behind
00:08:14
that okay there's and that data there's attribution there's oracle services there's
00:08:19
so much complexity that involved in doing real life applications
00:08:22
well only a web brother has to have what's yes yes and javascript in a litany of other features
00:08:27
in capability yeah so these things tend to love all over time and they come out of
00:08:31
kind of a regulatory pressure necessity of the market and just pragmatism going going back to thank
00:08:36
you for that by the way it wasn't but i'm just telling audience what you do
00:08:40
oh i run i watch k. so now we're research and development for on the research side we actually right
00:08:45
white papers into science go through peer reviews so we write consensus algorithms and
00:08:49
zero knowledge through sunday and here is that we build cripple currencies
00:08:52
resentful the investors in the roman i've made quite a few today and i say what you know what questions you wanna ask and
00:08:58
so i did the question is do investors come to you for advice well yeah we diligence yeah we
00:09:05
have to collection to people that tend to come to us one are people were considering investing
00:09:10
in something and actually it's not even normal investors it usually on the seats are the people who
00:09:15
are saying we want to take a position in a company or a in a crowd cell
00:09:19
and then we help them along and we do due diligence so we look at things like
00:09:22
the technical talent of the team the code the white paper these types of things
00:09:26
and the other people come to us with those whatever the nice yell and they have
00:09:29
like regulatory questions structuring questions marketing questions so this is what i'd like us to
00:09:34
drill down the because from the entrepreneurs that i've met today you are asking the question
00:09:40
should i i see a when should i do it usually use what you like is
00:09:45
and the investor is your skiing should i invest should i invest in the font
00:09:50
when to get in it is the dangers in well i got a present and you know the question
00:09:55
so i guess it's i mean we've seen a lot of initiatives around the formalisation of process but
00:10:02
there's one thing that inspires people or the the common denominator that we've noticed is that
00:10:07
the potential for liquidity is high okay so was let me i mean richard maybe is want
00:10:14
to try to and and all that because you met those investors and at the
00:10:18
time you didn't know you could offer them this incredible potential what is it me the
00:10:24
potential for liquidity i mean i mentioned a little bit earlier five in it
00:10:29
go first and i'll try to keep it brief but all got um but um
00:10:35
you know i think that we should explore all you know the potential for you
00:10:39
know as an investor thinking about uh uh returning some of the capital to
00:10:45
you know our investors that something that clearly is gonna be on the table for consideration bought
00:10:51
going up to one side i think this liquidity use it is extremely dangerous
00:10:55
um i think that uh that we need to remember
00:11:01
that great finnish degree polish between venture capital
00:11:04
and entrepreneur as um you know comes from that report between the individuals it comes from
00:11:11
i'm actually doing the level of of due diligence on technology so
00:11:15
that that we were just discussing just now that's not
00:11:18
actually not new that's how the festival is is is is down it comes from thinking about how you can
00:11:24
get the the the largest and most jerome possible company out
00:11:28
of the whole uh project all all those for me
00:11:32
thinking back to my times an entrepreneur what you're looking for and frankly have been
00:11:36
missing for a long period of time in europe tended to be
00:11:39
concentrated in silicon valley but now a much more prevalent
00:11:43
i'm sort of it's kind of like the same old story again but if
00:11:47
anything it's really uh in the office of grey venture capital investing
00:11:54
nice to be as finely tuned as possible for this next year uh and not to get distracted
00:11:59
by the uh the quick riches of a liquidity i was uh in car is to here
00:12:06
a journey back i was i was delighted see that you're going on a previous panel because
00:12:10
he spoke he has spoken previously of enjoying the disruption of his
00:12:14
own industry the budget gap leads to like kinda like
00:12:18
but then he made a terrific point which is you know smart because i don't need to come to
00:12:23
us to the best is right we made for for for the money 'cause it could available anyway
00:12:29
it's actually the advice that they need to help not to screw it up it is it's is that still the case
00:12:36
and uh all go what do you think is likely then to happen as the next step
00:12:41
as a result of the freedom that the i. c. uh well has given us
00:12:47
what is likely to to be the next will any of that people's that
00:12:50
in the next that yeah i think you know i'll circulate here we'll
00:12:54
move on and we'll have much more you know a comfortable environment tend
00:13:01
to be secure you know whatever to invent what has the consequences
00:13:05
that's all nice hillside right but that's you know just one use case
00:13:11
offset technology right and we're gonna see a lot of different as they use cases is that right
00:13:17
it's just came up is the first one yeah i see a huge opportunity since the space of
00:13:21
two condition of real assets that's gonna be the next to each way if you know
00:13:26
and we're gonna use this one to create small creates a intel's
00:13:30
asset classes set where consider it you know quite early quit
00:13:35
where you know difficult to deal with if your like prime integrity like real estate right
00:13:41
yeah it's rare didn't begin right and this technology enables says you she ends and trading in
00:13:48
a completely different manner rate meditations cheap reliable
00:13:54
is that building is it the efficiency
00:13:57
and if you like the larger audience that we can address with this that's that's the real magic yeah i think it's
00:14:04
efficiency and you know it's also governance model to look at
00:14:09
the economy enables us to create new governance models
00:14:13
well it allows us to doesn't mean we are doing it yet i i think we will get there i
00:14:19
had a lot of different companies and teams summons and you see here i want a good way
00:14:25
and this is governance models it's essential what's very interesting about the token economy rate is that
00:14:31
you don't have to stay cool there is in the system and see all have their
00:14:37
but to be sure nate incentives to move to create value altogether rate right
00:14:44
and this is very unique system actually gonna see you know i think
00:14:47
overall that it's on c. exchanges you know is that our government else
00:14:52
you know membership clocks great where you just call this take i
00:14:58
mean i think that is one of the barriers there are
00:15:01
missing components such as robust brokerage services
00:15:06
that we desperately need people to develop the the best in and and to be
00:15:10
able to rely on it's kind of a big hit and miss often example
00:15:13
let's talk about risk briefly that tell us because one of the things that uh
00:15:18
we've been told is exciting is this the tension will this into mediating
00:15:24
the asset manages and uh you know the way it was control the risk it's it's if that happens
00:15:30
well okay so market there's a lot of theories about this but
00:15:33
people who really believe in markets believe that markets are ultimately
00:15:37
fairly good at managing risk by herself six yes so there's a caviar to that you need to have their free
00:15:43
transparent inconsistent markets so when you see most market failures are usually
00:15:48
occur as a result of either bad regulation or there
00:15:51
is a result of dark pools or other things or over use of certain models that the sports or banks
00:15:57
so uh you know the centre mediation of institutions doesn't necessarily
00:16:01
mean we're gonna see a catastrophic increase the rest
00:16:04
what will happen is people will naturally reacted build metal
00:16:07
layers to compensate like insurance market or added due
00:16:10
diligence and so forth and you'll see voluntary regulation a core or restrictions occur or is it just because you
00:16:16
could buy something your pension fund can't because it's not rated for example why not necessarily requirement so
00:16:22
i i think that's the wrong question of will increase risk or not it's more of a question of organs
00:16:27
for markets and and that's how the market will judge whether that if there will know exactly if they
00:16:32
have the tools to measure and i mean i would agree i mean you you know i'm a i'm
00:16:37
i'm a mention again early i'm sort of excited by the fact that we can unlock up a
00:16:41
far greater amount of the wells caplan deported interesting projects i would i would agree that
00:16:46
you know the transparency that is inherent in the digital comics are being built
00:16:52
should be um and with the founder should um he to you know pretty good markets um
00:16:57
and that yes without having that markets that is let's of the climate is historically but
00:17:02
obviously you know speculation and also lead to us we say some
00:17:07
uncomfortable um experiences in in markets and so i mean
00:17:11
one of the questions is um uh you know what are the you you mention insurances insurance or is it
00:17:18
derivatives or what is it that can provide the dampening uh within the flow of capital
00:17:24
into different projects uh that would be of uh make this more effective and
00:17:28
i guess that probably does tied into a you know the role of investors as
00:17:34
as not just as investors and and and having to get very sophisticated
00:17:38
um work with the management team in another the boardroom but also it
00:17:42
as kind of key stakeholders in these digital economist so those i
00:17:46
know this is us such complex interplay you got open markets with
00:17:50
to relive actions and stakeholders and digital column is and boardrooms
00:17:55
all of which really work at how they can come together but i just really bring up one thing so
00:18:00
go ahead uh the markets knew that china shutting down big point on the right before we do
00:18:05
you so the price if required of an hour said with all these announcements of
00:18:09
chinese exchanges being shut down markets are smarter than people they always are
00:18:13
so uh it never underestimate the power there now with respect the product it's really good
00:18:18
that we now have liquidity that's also really good that we now have the
00:18:21
ability to read the rest other people in as long as that's not restricted in
00:18:25
its open mind you actionable see much better risk management the what existence silos
00:18:30
'cause it you have competitive advantages and regulatory robert frost insider trading all the things that
00:18:35
aren't dammit with traditional markets and that's good it did you mention about the potential
00:18:40
for this technology to all comments to widen the market but let's
00:18:44
put some numbers around that i mean how big is
00:18:47
i think i managed early the the size of the alternative investment market out of the total well all
00:18:53
i it depends on you know what you define as
00:18:56
alternative investments but in the classical traditional sense
00:19:00
uh it's every says that it's you know we're not real estate not cash
00:19:04
equity or want and currently we have around seven trillion
00:19:11
inset segment traits and true and if you
00:19:13
compare to what bit current was just to know today that yesterday it was around eighty
00:19:21
a billion rate is it it's it's a huge amount um of assets and you know it's very
00:19:28
just inches isn't the chip trent in alternative assets that you've seen over the recent years
00:19:35
as a as a trench of retailers say she which irritation means you
00:19:39
know opening up of certain asset class to retail investors right
00:19:45
and why it's obviously only gets you have so much till created to raise the and you know very low interest
00:19:50
rates for so many years now so obviously even uh
00:19:56
investor since the last segment low high their voice
00:19:59
or affluent right there will continue opportunities and this this year's trends
00:20:04
that was going on like for the last ten years
00:20:06
now now we have all solicit technology to make that happen made the block change the to concede i mean
00:20:13
which would you can you take a guess of how big it could be about well i mean i i i
00:20:18
triple checked the other then i think maybe a can of tuna ten percent of financial assets under management now
00:20:24
um that are really in kind of corny but alternative but i think for me the the real point
00:20:29
is that i venture is a sliver of that and actually be good venture that focused on
00:20:35
you know when you work on the moon shots all star shops that can
00:20:38
really exciting stuff is like another sliver of that and that's the
00:20:42
stuff that could really move this forward and it's you know there are
00:20:45
some really exciting venture capital firms from the the the wells
00:20:49
um who who are combining now this ability to allocate capital
00:20:54
like they couldn't before to build digital economies with a phone in advance is like
00:20:59
whether it be the the price of solar all quantum computing or you
00:21:02
know obviously a iron in are becoming more prevalent i mean the some really
00:21:08
fundamental shifts if you allow yourself to get into gonna futurist mode
00:21:12
sort of rate cuts was sort of mode and you can you can get seriously excited and i think
00:21:17
there's this panel maybe is another pilot but i'm at and you know and i think that
00:21:23
the building the tissue economies the unlocking of that that capital through
00:21:28
you know taken cells has got a got a key part to play in that i
00:21:32
mean it's about getting the mall some providing income and education and also and and
00:21:39
solving major problems of genetic disease i mean that's what we're talking about in
00:21:44
terms of that improve capitalisation with getting excited about i think that
00:21:48
so i know it and this kinda by the way is the one on one of the ones perhaps
00:21:53
that is going to be asking allowing questions that people used so uh i if you have
00:21:59
a burning question that you wanna ask then we'll see i get ready to come and ask you
00:22:03
the question so i have a quick think 'cause we're gonna leave some time at the end
00:22:07
even for this panel previous ones if there's people here that that that can perhaps contribute to it
00:22:12
so uh if you have any that you a question one austin please raise your hand
00:22:16
and i will try to keep an eye out for when i was uh
00:22:20
as one in the middle now i don't know if we have a microphone that come live
00:22:24
so what i would suggest you in school like to to to projects to use your diaphragm
00:22:29
ha ha this is it go for it but i will repeat the question so
00:22:33
uh with the first person the question i think is in the uh middle cargo here please stand up so your name and then a
00:22:39
guy with a question like that i have a might so that's part so i'm nah next and the question is more directed
00:22:46
yeah that's the the last years where we are and also how it can or things started so
00:22:51
it's a mind it's a world full of let's say three money nowadays and flooding the
00:22:55
money because uh central banks and how do students going when the cycle is
00:22:59
over and we can go back to an average writer cycles we found the stem
00:23:05
cell so you know you have all well this organ tissue you have part
00:23:09
leverage longer simple nerve tissue right they'll think different and assets are
00:23:14
the same way you have cash in commodities securities bonds
00:23:18
that right tokens of the stem cell they could turn into anything and they can move anywhere they can do anything
00:23:25
so now that we have that uh it's not a question of
00:23:29
how we actually build a sustainable mass of global market for
00:23:33
and then anybody is on equal footing just the pretty magical part of all
00:23:37
but it also means that everybody's expose the same set of risk
00:23:40
as opposed to just accredited investors and special people that's the hard part
00:23:45
where we're at now it is to act as that one maybe
00:23:48
it from my side um you know when you start any kind of business it's of course you know the first question how
00:23:55
do scale how do scale quickly right so i think for the school
00:24:01
to condition topic now is the right time and it's not
00:24:04
just you know question of man sits question of here is will
00:24:08
still be insists low interest environment uh four years tickle
00:24:13
i'm still if you manage to start says kind of business
00:24:17
today and scale it quickly was in two three years
00:24:20
then i think you'll get one cycle turns it will stay with already owns this
00:24:25
critical mass so in terms of business model things that's that's not as the
00:24:30
first uh it's a major risk today yes so i agree with both of those things on a button to say to put numbers on it i mean
00:24:38
yeah sure low interest rate environment right now maybe that means of some family off
00:24:42
his attorney around going oh gosh i should try to make some money
00:24:46
using you know this whole group that phenomenon you know but i hope that the interest rates can go
00:24:52
up to anything new yeah the the rates of return that these kind of projects can deliver
00:24:57
uh quite aside from kind of making the world a better place you know they you know we should be forty fifty percent
00:25:02
i know rates which i'm sorry the interest face and and they're within
00:25:06
that should make that much difference that's good expression of that we're
00:25:11
gonna try and ploughed through a few these please say who you are and then your question die from moment go for it huh
00:25:22
um my name's right okay okay okay yeah my name's brian and
00:25:29
i have a question richard you made a comment about uh the issues with immediate liquidity
00:25:34
um you know that's happened now what i see those organisation
00:25:38
um i wonder you know from my perspective i see
00:25:42
uh an opportunity to really say and and the prophecies and assumptions
00:25:46
that have gone into the traditional fundraising models for start ups
00:25:50
and so i'm wondering what your perspective and what the panels perspective is on
00:25:54
on the other side of that equation you know the benefits for 'em
00:25:58
is new structure and what opportunities we have to maintain the relationship capital you
00:26:05
know that that was existing between venture capitalists and and other companies
00:26:10
they're working with or or now that's you know that's new one raising all sure i mean i mean a brief don't get me wrong i
00:26:17
think the we should be all others down to me or us that
00:26:22
they should be the freedom to experiment as as radically as possible
00:26:26
um you know and that's what this is providing that's one of the beauties of that um i just think we
00:26:31
should never on that estimate the ability of individual people to be you know short term as shortsighted and greedy
00:26:38
and that's gonna lead to some um uh you know undesirable
00:26:42
effects on intended consequences we just need to be alert
00:26:45
to that um and i think absolutely it's it's um as you said it's it's providing you with funding
00:26:52
not just the projects we had before but you know new projects good we're gonna find through some more questions 'cause this is uh
00:26:58
doing well please ones can say you are very short question go for it and then yeah one of the back
00:27:02
of the last one for a hike right but i'm i'm just coming back to the questionable quality yeah
00:27:07
um oh what you say you could argue for example the bottom ah that's the problem is that the
00:27:13
lack of off so it doesn't right what do you see these offices and uh jane uh in
00:27:20
the market in the us market it will come in
00:27:25
at the clock once it's high quality and by
00:27:28
what that's all so institutional do me yeah yeah oh whatever form you see that high right
00:27:33
okay so first off you have to understand something that uh i see those are not actually do
00:27:39
it's surprising but it has been for example how they found
00:27:41
the model lessen the gen three and the kicker factory
00:27:45
this come from theses and all the issue more stock and sold it to people to read billions of dollars
00:27:51
so the concept of i need to raise money i'll issue an asset a token and and
00:27:56
raise capital backing come from anybody to the general public institutional investors and so forth uh_huh
00:28:01
uh it institutions or a really in a rock and a hard place 'cause they live a paradigm where they make seven percent to
00:28:07
ten percent or whatever maybe less right now 'cause markets aren't so good in the crypt the market's making an enormous return
00:28:14
right we're going for at five or actually there's a nice yellow near you get five x. you're complaining about it 'cause all
00:28:20
mad that i got a twenty x. or something like that but right now we're thinking knee jerk reaction to rocking institutional
00:28:26
investors and uh but hope or crock just to try to get exposure to these markets to get some money that's all gonna
00:28:32
try i'll just like the top problem had the same problem yeah he'll remember anybody else will remember the same problem
00:28:37
we're not you ninety eight ninety nine people are getting a hundred x. it wasn't real it's
00:28:41
all fake but it doesn't mean l. p.'s should not be interested in institutions and as
00:28:45
as it absolutely not what needs to happen is they they need to be a bit
00:28:49
more diversified better standards need to merge and we have to go through a rash
00:28:53
people have to lose money get a wife 'cause then what happens is the pest dot
00:28:57
coms go away but the amazon stay yellow that we have standard that was them
00:29:02
because point that uh in a crash that's when some of the greatest companies only
00:29:05
black exactly like there's only two more questions because we have exactly a minute
00:29:10
would you mind getting both of you to say oh questions and then we'll tried
00:29:13
on some really quickly go for it ha my uh my name's start
00:29:17
uh actually i spoke to read show about the same question but i would like to hear all your answers please
00:29:23
um nowadays with the the chinese news and the regulations
00:29:28
and banning what if you could in as
00:29:31
community are get regulated and more countries actually get
00:29:36
involved in this banning things and closing
00:29:39
i'm shutting down these exchanges what is the next step for you as icicles ah
00:29:45
okay so what's the next step in the wake of a changing regulated environments
00:29:50
boss like front back on to the next question and wildly we wait till next
00:29:53
question i'll actually just give you the one piece of advice that i
00:29:57
i always give anybody who wants to me in the market like this which is a
00:30:00
bit like a gold rush sell them or shovels right now the second question
00:30:06
how do you pick the best i. c. e. o.'s and
00:30:09
where will the assets that go behind the future tokens
00:30:13
come from which is best uh with commodities a securities
00:30:17
real estate property where where what are the best
00:30:20
assets uh to back tokens so that's it it's an unregulated question twenty using one question yeah
00:30:26
well since i've been in but bit going for awhile maybe i take up this one so i
00:30:32
think you know of course what we hear now from chang has this is there a
00:30:36
um that of worrisome right and it's it's not a good
00:30:39
yes yeah it would be a a significant a break
00:30:43
down that were a significant a problem for bit quite i don't think so great because one case it seems
00:30:50
the same in russia couple of years ago rating pressure you know puts in said that stable so everybody in
00:30:56
the jail for four years if you however tight speak quite great and what happened it became one of
00:31:03
the largest uh uh volume treaters on local bit quite dot com i think about this we should expect that then
00:31:12
from j. p. morgan right exactly we actually expect to find other already doing that that would be controversial
00:31:21
that we should comfort to it i think it's a great
00:31:26
opportunity to buy for those who didn't changing regulator
00:31:30
environment i mean you have to that and we're all saying that don't wonder whether on that one
00:31:35
well first off about china why why is everybody surprise the country that built the giant fire wall is
00:31:40
upset and scared about free money especially have capital controls i was looking which doesn't have that right
00:31:46
uh you know regulatory environment changes it's frustrating it starts it next lawyers
00:31:51
lots of money in accounts lots of money but all goes point
00:31:53
uh the genie is out of the bottle and we're now actually in control over on my
00:31:58
again we found the steps all we can do whatever we want to do with it
00:32:01
and uh as a consequence of that freedom uh we have now lahore
00:32:06
responsibility as individuals but we also have a lot more financial freedom
00:32:09
so i don't worry too much about regulation you deal with that when you want to and you make a personal choice of
00:32:15
how badly do you want us to the jail cell i i l. yeah double their attention work its way out yeah
00:32:22
well he just as i i i think weeks on run out of time but it was worth going over
