Investing in the Future of Cryptocurrency with Kyle Samani
By The Mission
Cryptocurrency markets are, by their nature, fast-moving and difficult to predict. The constant ups and downs of the value of bitcoin have made headlines more than once. So, in one of the fastest-paced financial markets in the world, how do you track where things are going next? Kyle Samani is the Co-Founder and Managing Partner at Multicoin Capital, a thesis-driven crypto fund that invests in tokens and companies reshaping entire sectors of the global economy. Kyle and the team at Multicoin are wired into the most up-to-date and important trends in the crypto marketplace. Prior to his work with Multicoin, Kyle co-founded Pristine, an enterprise software company that helps deskless workers integrate smart glasses into their workflow. Through his leadership, Pristine raised over $5 million in venture capital and millions of dollars in revenue before being acquired by Upskill in 2017. In this episode, Kyle and Chad sit down to talk about the future trends Kyle’s noticing in the crypto markets, why he chose to place roots in Austin instead of Silicon Valley, and Kyle’s experience with crypto regulation at both a national and international level. 27:38- “We are a truth seeking organization. That’s our goal, to make sense of all this noise, understand the truth and then bet on that truth happening.” 28:02- “Make sure if you’re going to talk about data, that you’re not getting cause and effect backwards.If you’re going to make a causal argument on data then you need to be able to explain causation and not just say they are correlated.” Follow Kyle on Twitter at @KyleSamani.
