Hello borderless friends. I am especially thrilled to be publishing this interview with the fascinating Sam Bankman-Fried. While studying physics at MIT Sam came across effective altruism - this is a research field that finds the most promising solutions to the world's pressing problems. Sam decided that he can have the biggest impact in solving these problems by making money as a trader and donating it to important causes. In 2017, he launched Alameda research to address the liquidity problems he saw in the growing crypto industry. Two years later, his team is trading an average of $1B a day across crypto markets, they are among the top 3 most profitable traders on BitMex, having realized profits exceeding $50M. The team has already donated $4M to save human lives, prevent animal suffering, and research AI. I believe Sam, Alameda, and their new exchange FTX are just getting started. I loved this talk and I hope you love it as well.
This time I am meeting Ivan Gowan, who is the founder and CEO of Currency.com. This is the first regulated tokenized securities exchange which allows crypto holders to get price exposure to more than 1000 securities such as Apple, Facebook, and Telsa stock, governmental bonds, and industry indices like the S&P500 and the DAX. Ivan explains in detail how Currency.com work, why the company based its operations in Belarus, what are its most sought investment products, why they are determined to move to a completely decentralized trading engine and much more. It was a pleasure having this conversation and I hope you enjoy it as well.

This crypto shot features Clay Collins, the founder and CEO of Nomics. I did a 70-min interview with Clay in episode 5 of the podcast. In this crypto shot I have selected some of my favorite highlights from my chat with Clay. This episode covers: How exchanges create fake volumes out of thin air. What makes Nomics different from other pricing trackers and API providers. Why Nomics classifies crypto assets as actively traded, inactive and deadcoins. And we finish off with some valuable insights from Clay on building a successful company.

In this episode, I am talking to Preethi Kasireddy, the founder of TruStory - the only place on the internet where you can have truly constructive debates on crypto topics. This is a place where you go to not to argue and prove how smart you are, but to genuinely look for the truth or at least all sides of a particular story. What’s more, you can make money by debating on the platform. Preethi is a fascinating builder. After studying engineering and working 100 hrs/week at Goldman Sachs, she joined the leading VC firm a16z only to realize that she wants to become a founder herself. This made her drop the dream a16z job in order to learn how to code. After a brief experience as a software engineer in Coinbase, she went on to start TruStory with the mission to bring meaningful debates back into society.

How Terra achieves stability, without being backed by real-world assets. How Terra is better than Facebook’s Libra. How you will be able to get a high-yield interest with Terra on Nexo’s interest-earning account.

Today I have a very special guest. Nathaniel Whittemore - the master of crypto narratives. He is a renowned marketer, thought leader, and curator in the cryptocurrency space. He is most famous for his Long Read Sunday twitter threads, where every week he builds an engaging story off of the major news and opinions the crypto community is most excited about. This talk consists of 3 distinct parts. Think of them as 3 crypto shots. You can listen to all of them at once. Or you can listen to just 1 or 2 shots, which cover the topics you are most interested in. Each of these crypto shots is available as a separate episode on the playlist of the Borderless Crypto podcast. Shot number 1 - What is narrative marketing? Why companies must have it as a foundational layer of all their marketing and communication activities? What are some prime examples of crypto business utilizing narrative marketing? And how Nathaniel can help you build your company narrative. Shot number 2 -  Do we need decentralized social media? What keeps us attached to the centralized Facebook, Twitter and what is the key ingredient that could make us switch to a decentralized alternative? This shot presents an absolutely brilliant analysis of the lifecycle of a social media from Nathaniel. Shot number 3 - is about your privacy. Today, for the most part, you don’t have privacy. Google and Facebook probably know more about you than you know about yourself. But that might change as Apple recently started to care, respect and fight for your privacy. Nathaniel analyzes why Apple’s move may be the catalyst to make you a sovereign of your data. Lastly, Nathaniel shares who are the two types of investors he thinks will benefit the most from Bitcoin’s growth.

These are select excerpts from my regular talks, which give you a concentrated chunk of information on a specific topic in 5-10 or 20 minutes maximum. Тhis crypto short features Nathaniel Whittemore, the author of the popular crypto newsletter Long Reads Sunday, with whom we discuss privacy. Today, for the most part, you don’t have privacy.

Nathaniel analyzes why Apple’s move may be the catalyst to make you a sovereign of your data.
