“My principles are more important than the money or my title.” - Muhammad Ali
Translation: Don’t let money or fame change your core values/principles.
Recap: Bill Gates has been buying up farmland in the US, and is now the top private farmland owner in America. In addition, he has several investments focused on sustainable agriculture.
Comment: Gates' investments align clearly with our broader views on inflation, and themes around onshoring (re-localizing supply chains). Farmland as an investment provides an inflation hedge, is closely correlated to money supply growth (see below), has tax advantages (raise taxes on farmland = rise in food costs; government avoids this), and has 'sustainable' cash flow opportunity (food = a staple for life).
An Economic Analysis of Ethereum [Article]
Recap: Lyn provides an in-depth analysis of Ethereum (history, progression, etc.) and the broader ETH ecosystem, with an update based on feedback she received from the ETH community (seemingly including Vitalik).
Comment: We view this as a useful framework for beginning to understand Ethereum and the ecosystem, but would highlight Lyn's focus as a macro / process-oriented thinker and investor. ETH represents more of a "VC type" investment that still has multiple paths (optionality) going forward - so it doesn't fit as "neatly" into her framework as something like Bitcoin, which is more mature/established. The risk/rewards for the two assets are also different in that regard - ETH is a higher risk / higher reward opportunity. Check out the Telegram for our recent group discussion on the topic.
ML and NLP Research Highlights of 2020 [Article]
Recap: Top 10 most exciting projects/advancements in ML (machine learning) and NLP (natural language processing) in 2020.
Comment: Part of the reason we founded CrowdCent was because of the exponential advances in ML and NLP technologies. We seek to leverage these advancements to improve our 'products' over time... it's never been clearer that these technologies will dramatically reshape the world in the coming years. Check this out - transform words into an image. Feel free to ping us if you have interest in learning more about how we leverage ML/NLP tech.
