TMBA630: Investing in the Age of Autonomy

Podcast 43:28 | Download | Spotify| Stitcher | iTunes | Comment

In today’s show Dan talks to Jake Ryan, CIO of the crypto hedge fund Tradecraft Capital and author of ‘Crypto Asset Investing in the Age of Autonomy’, about why he believes the convergence of cryptocurrency and new technologies is creating a transformational environment as significant as the ‘Information Age’.

“What we’ve seen, over the past decade or so, is innovation around automation. And that’s been powerful, but it hasn’t been transformational. It hasn’t altered fundamentally how businesses operate. The last piece of the puzzle really was cryptocurrency, because it allows us to store, process and transfer economic value without human intervention … autonomy is the ultimate competitive advantage”.
