  • So let me talk about section two here and I want to talk about my personal background in finance and tell you my story.

  • You might enjoy this story.

  • Um And again feel free to put your questions in here.

  • Um And I want to talk about my whole journey.

  • This is a picture of a trading floor in new york city and this is a little bit like what my trading floor looked like back in 1993 when I was a banker stress, mine was actually bigger than this.

  • It was massive and it was incredibly a lot to take in.

  • Uh if I'm honest with you.

  • And uh you know let me tell you a little bit about myself first because I was recruited At M.

  • IT.

  • back in 1993 by all the investment banks and trading companies in America.

  • And I'm gonna put another slide up really quick here as well and show you some of the things that we would look at back in the way and and and some of things I'm looking at right now.

  • And this is by the way, options, volatility on Bitcoin.

  • And the reason I put this up right now is because my 15 years of experience on Wall Street will allow me to decode this diagram for you.

  • And this shows by the way, call options and put option buys and sells and blocked plays currently on Bitcoin.

  • And this tells you a lot about what's going on in the marketplace.

  • It also tells you about what's going on with volatility.

  • You can actually buy and sell volatility in the marketplace.

  • And there's a lot of interesting metrics like option, delta gamma and data that you need to understand when it comes to these markets.

  • And again, I'll come back to that diagram shortly.

  • But my experience on Wall Street allows me to process that.

  • So again, back to my story back in 1993 I was sitting at M I.

  • T.

  • I was actually back in 1992 and I just had to summer jobs in engineering companies.

  • I worked at ford Motor company for the summer, which was amazing because I had a ford Mustang when I was a kid and I thought I wanted to be a mechanical engineer my whole life.

  • And I worked there and I looked around and I said, I don't want to want to be one of these guys who had 60 years old is making 50 grand a year and he's living in michigan.

  • I'm like, I don't wanna be that guy.

  • So the next summer I worked for the Aerospace corporation in Los Angeles.

  • This was a special consultancy for the United States government.

  • We worked on aerospace projects and space projects.

  • I worked on the Galileo space probe for two summers actually.

  • And then I looked at that and I thought I don't really want to do this.

  • And then I saw the movie Wall Street and I got excited about options and stocks and finance.

  • I started taking classes at the Sloan School of Finance.

  • They actually let the undergraduates do that at M.

  • I.

  • T.

  • And I was crushing it.

  • So here I was some 20 year old kid and I was smoking all these 27 year old NBA students who had just come back from their careers on Wall Street to learn options at M.

  • I.

  • T.

  • And they didn't understand you know, quadratic equations like I did.

  • And so we were smoking them in there and I took accounting options, pricing, financial theory.

  • And after that taste I thought I'm going straight to Wall Street.

  • And so a bunch of banks, investment banks came and interviewed me.

  • I flew from boston to new york city, I put my best suit on, I could and I interviewed And uh it was an incredible experience.

  • Um there's a picture of me graduated from M.

  • IT.

  • This is I think in May of 1993.

  • And literally a few months later I packed a van and all my stuff in the van and drove from boston to new york city.

  • And I I started my career on Wall Street.

  • And the reason Wall Street was looking for engineers is because they needed smart Math and engineering students to price these complex derivative instruments.

  • And that's why they went and found me.

  • And I still remember my interview, I still remember my first day at Bankers Trust.

  • It was on the 33rd floor of Bankers Trust Plaza, which was the building right next to the World Trade Center before it got knocked down, right in 2001.

  • And on one side of 33rd floor you can look right into the building, you can see all of uptown Manhattan on the other side, you can see the statue of liberty and I would walk up there and I literally pinch myself, I'm like, I must be in a movie and there was a massive trading floor as well.

  • Um it must have been 300 people on their all open plan floor, people yelling, people swearing alpha males, threatening people sometimes there were fights millions upon tens of millions of dollars being made, guys in their twenties that were smacking it with penthouses in new york city.

  • I mean it was crazy and I loved every minute of it and I learned how to price and trade some of the most complex derivative transactions in the world.

  • I traded hundreds of millions of dollars worth of U.

  • S.

  • Government treasuries.

  • I traded on the Chicago mercantile exchange.

  • I traded on the Chicago board of trade Um and and they gave me the phone and said go for it.

  • I was 22 years old and running a massive massive book of risk and I learned all about how to trade and it's a complex idea and it's not easy to do and you need to know how to check your emotions and you need to know what's going on.

  • And our job was to create these complex options and financial instruments and package them for our clients that were corporate that were institutions et cetera.

  • And when I started looking into the defy space, months and years ago, I looked at what's happening now and I thought, Wow, I haven't seen this in 30 years, 30 years ago, we had rocket scientists doing what they're doing right now in the past 12 months in the defy space and it's growing at a rate that's incomprehensible to me.

  • The things that are happening right now in decentralized finance on some of these incredible platforms took Wall Street 30 or 40 or 50 years to create and innovate.

  • I'm telling you, you know, some of these yield farming things that are going on where you can take your crypto assets and earn yield on them, took the financial markets of Wall Street 20 years to create and they're still not as transparent and liquid and what's happening in decentralized finance say, I'm telling you from someone who's been in this business for 15 years and started 30 years ago.

  • I recognize what incredible things are happening here and that's why we're deciding to go all in on this.

  • Yeah.
