Matt Hougan, CIO, Bitwise Asset Management, joins us for a conversation about how Bitcoin, Ethereum, and other cryptoassets are set to transform the financial marketplace. Hougan's firm was the first-to-market asset management firm to make managed crypto-assets accessible to advisors and other investment professionals, with its Bitwise 10 Crypto Index Fund (BITW) as well as a stable of innovative and disruptive fund and ETF exposures to Bitcoin, DeFi, Ethereum, Uniswap, and Aave.
Matt first established himself in his early career as the lead go-to authority on ETFs, as CEO of ETF.com (formerly IndexUniverse.com), where he tirelessly advocated on the power of ETFs to transform the global investment marketplace.
Now, his experiences, and his insights from the ETF revolution serve as the guideposts to how the nascent Crypto and DeFi disruption could unfurl, into a new system and future financial standard.
Several years ago, after selling ETF.com, and on his journey to discover what the next big thing, what the next multi-trillion dollar financial phenomemon would be, all roads led Hougan to examine Bitcoin and the ecosystem beyond, of cryto-assets and DeFi (Decentralized Finance). He is all in, first principles front and centre, channeling all his research prowess and energy to educate advisors on this investing space. And, in case you're wondering, its still just the beginning.
We get into all of it, plus, and importantly, the part of conversation where he describes, in no uncertain tone, what bitcoin does to portfolios.
