    For the full audio interview, transcript, show notes and more visit: https://altassetallocation.com/ Peter is one of those rare individuals that keeps pretty close tabs on a number of financial assets and markets. He’s my go-to guy for insight into where financial markets could be moving, and what sorts of things might be worth looking into a bit more.  

    Macro is tough to forecast, but I always enjoy talking to sharp thinkers like Peter to help provide a bit more clarity. Markets have a tendency to humble investors, but I still think that ideas like Peter's can provide tremendous benefits.

    86: Intro to DeFi with Kris Kay

    86: Intro to DeFi with Kris Kay

    For the full audio interview, transcript, show notes and more visit: https://altassetallocation.com/ 

    Today's interview is with Kris Kay - a DeFi Educator and YouTuber.  

    Decentralized Finance, or DeFi, is something I’ve talked a lot about on this channel. Kris is doing a lot of onboarding in DeFi - which is very hard. I run CryptoMondays here in LA and know from experience that taking someone from zero to yield farming or some more advanced DeFi concepts… not easy.   

    In this episode we talk about what is DeFi, why it’s important, some of the risks, onboarding newbies into DeFi and some predictions on where the space could be going.   We go through a few websites on the interview, so if you’re listening on podcast, it might make more sense to jump over to YouTube for a few of these sections. In the show notes I’ve linked up all of the relevant links if you miss them during the interview - you can find them at https://altassetallocation.com
