    Tools from our sponsors to go bankless:
    Loopring - trade & pay on Ethereum w/ near-0 gas fees!
    (use "Bankless" for VIP4 status & trades at 6bps!)

    Monolith - holy grail of bankless Visa cards

    Aave - money lego for lending & borrowing

    Rocket Dollar - tax shelter your crypto ($50 w/ "BANKLESS")
    (Read this on IRAs and 401ks) ----
    Andre Cronje calls himself just another DeFi dev, but you can't help but wonder, is he's underselling himself with that title?
    In a few short months he single-handedly created a fleet of DeFi yield farming money robots that locked up over $400m in assets in his yearn protocol. He launched a YFI token that grew in value by over 1,000% in its first week, one of the most explosive price charts crypto has ever seen.
    No pre-mine, no VC, no founders reward.
    Maybe a better title is King of the Yield Farmers.
    DeFi's Satoshi.

    Who is this guy?
    What did he build and why is it brilliant?
    Why did YFI go from $3 on July 17th to $5000 on August 8th?
    This is everything you need to know about yearn, YFI, and Andre.
    We cover:
    How Andre's really feeling What's up with "I test in prod" Why high YFI price can be bad How Yearn automates yield farming Andre's money robots Incenting strategy writers Risks of yearn Launching YFI to scale Why people buy YFI Organic governance Is Andre The Joker? What's coming next Join us next Monday for a fresh episode!

    Erik's been journeying into the bankless frontier since 2011. That's when he first discovered bitcoin.
    The open road. The unsettled whitespace. The westward trail. The highway to freedom. That's why he's here.
    And he's remained true to his values.
    That's why he speaks out against tyranny. That's why he embraces self-sovereign money and pokes holes in the myths of fiat. That's why he so ardently rejects maximalism. 
    Enjoy our conversation with one of cryptos original settlers. 
    We cover:
    Erik's journey into the bankless frontier The libertarian values in the code Why America isn't capitalist Why flag bucks are destined for collapse Gold, Bitcoin, Ethereum 4 categories of coins Crypto vs the final boss China vs America Why Maximalists lost the plot PRICE PREDICTIONS!
