**Just to clarify, I don’t believe yields go to zero in a bear market – I just argue that people saying “i’ll earn 10% APR on my dollars in the bear market” are likely misguided. Likely it bottoms around 2-4%

The goal of this channel is to look at crypto projects differently, more from a fundamental and data-driven point of view. I love catching pumps, but understanding WHAT a project does and WHY it’s important allows me to have stronger conviction on the names I own. None of this is financial or investment advice.
