The Roaring Twenties: Inflation, Equity Melt-Ups, and Extreme Bond Pain

Real VisionApril 07, 2021
Jared Dillian, publisher of The Daily Dirtnap, returns to the Daily Briefing to update Real Vision’s Jack Farley on how America’s red-hot economy is precipitating wage inflation alongside monetary and fiscal stimulus, worth trillions of dollars, which shows no sign of slowing. Dillian argues that this booming reflationary environment will be hostile to bonds but could lead to a “melt-up” in U.S. equity indexes as value stocks surge and growth stocks remain at hold their own. Lastly, Dillian and Farley cover gold, retail leverage, and the Federal Reserve’s release of its minutes from the FOMC’s meeting in March.

BadgerDAO: Bridging Bitcoin to Native Yield Strategies
Santiago Velez, entrepreneur and digital assets investor for Block Digital Corporation & AD, Inc., sits down with Chris Spadafora, founder of BadgerDAO, to discuss his background, the journey to found BadgerDAO, wrapped digital assets, risk, governance, and his thoughts on the crypto ecosystem. Following several years of investing in the space, Spadafora came to the conclusion that there was a lack of Bitcoin that can be wrapped or ported off of the bitcoin network and used as a utility on other blockchains. Spadafora asked, "How do you build an open community and project that wants to enable Bitcoin to work in a trusted and non-custodial way in addition to having an organization or business that is managed by the people vs a traditional corporate structure?" He recognized that the smart contract capabilities of Ethereum met a lot of the needs he was looking for in trying to utilize the liquidity of Bitcoin. While there are other protocols building on top of the Bitcoin network, Spadafora believes that the robustness of the smart contract technology that Ethereum built, in addition to the lack of liquidity and lack of interoperability in relation to the tools for daily usage, were key to fulfilling that vision. Filmed on May 6, 2021. Key learnings: To date, 1% of Bitcoin has been wrapped to port over to other blockchains. Spadafora believes that, moving forward, there will be anywhere between 20-40% of all Bitcoin will be wrapped and living on other chains because it is the ultimate collateral. While seeing the appreciation of Bitcoin in one’s wallet is good, being able to use it, put it to work, and have access to different financial services and applications that are traditionally reserved to hedge funds brings the power back to the people. Spadafora identifies that DeFi users have access to many great opportunities to gain interest; however, it requires too many steps, knowledge, and fees. Meanwhile, BadgerDAO allows for users to earn anywhere between 5%-30% interest on their Bitcoin while still retaining custody of their digital assets.

Exponential Megatrends in Healthcare: Data as "The Third Window Into Humanity"
John Nosta, innovation theorist and President of NostaLab, joins Real Vision senior editor Ash Bennington to share his thesis for exponential technological change from the frontlines of the rapidly-changing healthcare industry. Nosta argues that the pace of technological adoption is non-linear, noting that it took 67 years for the airline industry to reach 50 million users while it took Facebook only 3 years to reach the same mark – and a mere 19 days for Pokémon GO. Nosta shares with Bennington the many ways in which healthcare is at the forefront of this exponential change, such as gene editing, telemedicine, personalized X-Rays and EKGs, and collection of ambient biodata. Bennington and Nosta also discuss the history of innovation, the role of data privacy, and the steps technology firms need to take in order to remain at the cutting edge. Filmed on May 11, 2021. Key learnings: Nosta contends that the pace of technological change is faster than ever and will only accelerate—nowhere is this more true than the world of healthcare. Nosta challenges the mantra "build it and they will come," contending that the rate of adoption is just as important as the rate of innovation.
