    Is DeFi Really Decentralized?

    Is DeFi Really Decentralized?

    Last week, three DeFi (decentralized finance) groups stepped in with emergency plans to protect their projects and users from economic turbulence in the face of collapsing cryptocurrency prices.

    These DeFi crypto networks which had pledged to put users in control ended up taking charge themselves in order to survive the ongoing crisis in the digital asset market.

    Investing In An Inflationary Environment!

    Investing In An Inflationary Environment!

    Inflation has turned from transitory to pernicious, with some economists even raising the specter of a 1970s-style wage-price spiral. Should you reposition your investment portfolio for an inflationary environment, shifting some of your money to sectors or asset classes that tend to do well during inflationary periods? Or should you leave your investments alone and let the markets control their long-term destiny? In today’s video we look at market history to see how securities prices are affected by inflation, interest rates and interest rate hikes.

    How Did Russian Oligarchs Get So Rich?

    How Did Russian Oligarchs Get So Rich?

    Russian Oligarchs have become synonymous with superyachts, luxury mansions and the shady political maneuvering of post-Soviet Russia. Since the Russian invasion of Ukraine, Russian billionaires like Roman Abramovich, Vladimir Potanin, Alisher Usmanov and Oleg Deripaska have been all over the news.

    The word Oligarch conjures up images of opportunistic, well-connected businessmen who made billions by plundering the remains of the collapsed Soviet state. But how exactly did Russia’s oligarchs get so rich?

    The Coming Food Catastrophe

    The Coming Food Catastrophe

    The widely accepted idea of a cost-of-living crisis does not begin to capture the gravity of what may lie ahead according to António Guterres, the UN secretary general.  He warned earlier this week that the coming months threaten “the spectre of a global food shortage” that could last for years. The high cost of staple foods has already raised the number of people who cannot be sure of getting enough to eat by 440m, to 1.6bn. Nearly 250m are on the brink of famine.

    Stablecoins Are Unstable!

    Stablecoins Are Unstable!

    The $1.3tn cryptocurrency industry was on Thursday hit by one of its toughest challenges when stablecoin Tether — a critical cog in the market — failed to maintain its link with the US dollar. The company refuses to provide details on the Treasury holdings that back the stablecoin claiming their fear of revealing the ‘secret sauce.’

    Tether tumbled as low as 95.11 cents yesterday, far below the $1 peg that it seeks to maintain. Its price later recovered, but the slip-up, days after the failure of smaller algorithmic stablecoin rival TerraUSD, (and its paired coin Luna) sent bitcoin — the world’s biggest digital asset — sinking to its lowest level since late 2020.

    Ratings group Fitch said the troubles at Tether and TerraUSD “highlight the fragile nature of private stablecoins, and will accelerate calls for regulation”.
    In todays video we look at how algorithmic stablecoins like Terra work, we discuss their importance in DeFi and smart contracts.

Best Finance Podcast

This podcast is the smartest finance podcast you will find, while also being fun and funny. Some of the episodes are almost standup comedy. Patrick is amazingly knowledgable about finance and he is able to explain complicated ideas with great clarity. His YouTube channel is even better, as some of the visual aids he uses are amazing.
