Opinions and analyses

Anybody (especially me) trying to break down blockchain investing into a rubric of any kind would be treading on thin ice; this is a complex ecosystem and that is rapidly evolving and I do not think anybody has a complete and well-informed view at once. But this post reflects my current thinking and I am constantly meeting amazing entrepreneurs, technologists, and visionaries that help me evolve my view frequently.

While reports have been pouring in of Thanksgiving dinner conversations this year leading to retirees investing in cryptocurrencies, like much else at the feast, this is probably not healthy except in moderation. But the average retail tech investor could still make a play at blockchain based returns.  However, accessing the blockchain investment opportunity is non-trivial.  There are really three options at their disposal:

  1. Open an exchange account (on Coinbase, Binance, etc.) and trade in listed Cryptocurrencies
  2. Invest in equity of existing technology companies that will benefit from the adoption of blockchain
  3. Invest in a blockchain fund - usually a crypto hedgefund or crypto VC fund.

In this post, I will only address the first two, as the third is addressed elsewhere on our website.
