The Ultimate Guide to Crypto Finance. Level up. Go bankless.

    Inflation, The Fed, & Macro Markets | Jim Bianco

    Inflation, The Fed, & Macro Markets | Jim Bianco

    The Fed has made a big pivot in 2022, but what does that mean for markets? How aggressive does the Fed need to be to fight inflation?
    With the shift from Quantitative Easing to Quantitative Tightening, how are risk-on assets treated differently from risk-off assets? What's going on with the bond market?
    Jim Bianco is a seasoned investor, market commentator, and President of Bianco Research. With a sharp view of the past, present, and future, we ask him all these questions in order to know... is the world collapsing?

    The Song-A-Day Man | Jonathan Mann (Layer Zero)

    The Song-A-Day Man | Jonathan Mann (Layer Zero)

    Jonathan Mann writes and publishes a song every single day. He's done this without missing a day since January 1st, 2009, and holds the Guinness World Record for most consecutive days writing a song.
    His inspiration, passion, consistency, and all-around charm really comes through as he explores his journey in both music and crypto. Infatuated with the ideas and methodology behind CryptoPunks, he's launched his own NFT project for his daily songs with an accompanying DAO - SongADAO.
    Creation, labor, value, and scarcity blend together in Jonathan's world. He exemplifies Layer 0 brilliantly -- a mortal human behind lines of code, expressed through music and commitment. When you stretch art this far, cool things emerge. Tune in to find out what they are!

    101 - The Ownership Economy | Li Jin

    101 - The Ownership Economy | Li Jin

    Li Jin is a co-founder and general partner at Variant, a crypto fund investing in Web3 and what Li calls the Ownership Economy. Li is full of massive ideas about the past, present, and future of digital economies.
    The core thesis? Next-generation networks grow faster and bigger. The phase we're seeing emerge now with Web3 and crypto is deeply fascinating, with potential to shift power and ownership into the hands of users and creators.
    In this new paradigm, everyone is a creator, and everyone is an owner. In addition to her work at Variant, Li is also a painter and an accomplished writer on Substack. After her appearance on the Creator Economy Panel, we knew she had to come back on Bankless to dive deep—this time, into the Ownership Economy.

    The Great L2 Migration | Cross-Chain L2 Panel

    The Great L2 Migration | Cross-Chain L2 Panel

    We think 2022 is going to be a huge year for Layer 2 scaling solutions. Cross-Chain protocols will be a crucial infrastructure for the great migration to L2s, allowing users to bridge assets across platforms.
    Composability and user experience is the glue of modular blockchains, which optimize for decentralization, scaling, and cost. The projects and representatives each present cryptographic solutions for building a web of liquidity across the many suburbs of DeFi, where average users will live and engage.

    Aarika Rhodes vs Brad Sherman: Getting Crypto into Congress CA-32

    Aarika Rhodes vs Brad Sherman: Getting Crypto into Congress CA-32

    Aarika Rhodes is running for Congress! Running against incumbent Brad Sherman, who is notoriously misinformed and anti-crypto, Aarika seeks to bring a more crypto-friendly approach to CA-32, representing much of the San Fernando Valley in Southern California.
    A schoolteacher by profession, Aarika seems to be breathing fresh air into the stale political landscape. Here's her policy on crypto:
    "Aarika believes in the right of every individual to manage their own finances and investments as they see fit. In Congress, Aarika will oppose any attempts to ban this emerging technology. Aarika is also a strong advocate for making sure financial literacy is taught in schools and for people being aware of the environmental impact of their investments."
