    How Does DCG rectify a 900m hole? Is the Final Shoe Is Yet to Drop? With Guest Andrew (@AP_Abacus)

    How Does DCG rectify a 900m hole? Is the Final Shoe Is Yet to Drop? With Guest Andrew (@AP_Abacus)

    Interview with Andrew from Arch Public (@AP_Abacus) who has been releasing insider information about the way DCG and Genesis are handling the hole created from the recent crypto crash.  Is GBTC going to be forced to liquidate?  What does a 20% tender offer mean? Is this the one time we all benefit because so many different companies were in bed together their choices are either work something out together, or all fail?

    Tremendous insight from the HNW (high net worth) creditor side of things --- and a surprisingly sunny outcome is potentially around the corner if cooler heads prevail.

    (Apologies for the video dropping at various times throughout the recording, did the best we could with the snowstorm damaging connection in the Midwest)

    The View from Inside: How we survived Sam Bankman-Fried (House of Cards, Part 2)

    The View from Inside: How we survived Sam Bankman-Fried (House of Cards, Part 2)

    0:00 Introduction to this Episode. A Picture is Painted about Sam Bankman-Fried

    6:01:00 Initial Reactions from the fall of SBF and   FTX

    9:19:00 Closer to SBF, FTX, Alameda than 99% of people that are in Crypto

    9:57:00 Uniquely Positioned to Lose Everything because should have trusted Sam more than anyone else

    11:04:00 Sam being eerily quiet was the first red flag

    14:19:00 Something's not right, I'm getting out of here...

    15:20:00 Alan's THREE Close Calls in 2022, Celsius,  BlockFI, FTX

    19:04:00 Reflecting upon the Cycle -- What went well, what didn't?

    19:59:00 Insulating against Alameda

    20:23:00 Path Crypto, An Alameda Portfolio Company...

    21:04:00 How long have you had a relationship with   SBF?

    22:09:00 How did that relationship develop from   getting to know SBF to where Alameda invested in Stacked (Path)?

    24:26:00 One of the First 10 Equity Investments of   Alameda (out of over 400 to date)

    26:40:00 Alameda stopped being involved and   responding to investor updates, one of the only investments that doesn't have   a token

    27:44:00 Didn't have a token, but Alameda was   applying pressure to start a token due to immediate liquidity.

    28:29:00 Alameda wanted to Treasure our Money, wanted to take our Money and pay us Interest!!

    28:47:00 Pressured to take initial round in FTT, not   USD

    29:34:00 Sam advised to take in FTT, and open a sizeable short on ETH to hedge...when ETH was $320

    30:59:00 A very different experience with Alameda   than most because Path did not launch a token

    31:49:00 How hard was it to say no to SBF about   launching a token?

    32:34:00 8 to 10 hours of direct discussion with Sam   about launching a token

    33:24:00 Sam was advising them to create shell companies   to evade regulatory issues and launch a token

    38:41:00 A thousand times, Path could have given in, but stayed the...Path?

    40:14:00 Greater duty to do the right thing with   other people's money

    40:34:00 How do VCs get their money? LPs, Limited Partners

    42:55:00 Not all FTX Employees are Guilty, remember   that. Sam duped them too

    47:29:00 Most people had no idea this was going on, Brett Harrison, former CEO of FTX.us among them

    49:14:00 Sam made a terrible decision that impacted   6m+ people out of greed and hubris, which started with Terra LUNA

    51:19:00 A silver lining for the future.

    54:05:00 Morality wins the day
