🎙 Mati Greenspan: Only Those Who Are Well Funded or Most Committed Will Make it Through the Bear
This week on The Defiant Podcast we speak to Mati Greenspan. Mati is the CEO & founder of Quantum Economics, a crypto research and advisory firm. Mati believes we’ll keep seeing pain in the market, with crypto and stocks remaining highly correlated, as long as inflation persists. He says most sectors of crypto will be hit by this crash, because of reduced liquidity from dwindling token treasuries, or because demand for their platforms and apps will dry up.
Only those well funded and committed teams will make it through, and any project that survives a bear will see huge gains in the next rally. Still, he remains as bullish as ever on crypto, and believes staking is nothing short of the future of finance, and that DeFi will continue experimenting with different economic models. While most will fail, those that succeed will change the world.
A heads up that this interview was recorded last week, right before the Celsius debacle, in case you’re wondering why we didn’t speak about the elephant in the bear market.
