  1. Sorry but the first 10 min were just nonsense and the next 5 min were boring. That was enough wasted time. I will not buy housing derivatives instead hearing about how this market can manipulate the Crypto marking like they do long time in gold and silver market would be interesting. Cheers anyway

    1. Thanks for the feedback – definitely room for improvement on our end. Appreciate you tuning in

  2. Im going to disagree with the other comment made, I think this is a very relevant topic in a young market and interesting to observe the coming derivatives that will arrive into the crypto space. I didn’t see much room for improvement in this podcast, informative, interesting and forward looking.
