Ep. 011: Cryptoassets in retirement portfolios with Jack Tatar

by | Apr 1, 2018

In this episode, I talk with Jack Tatar about cryptoassets in retirement portfolios, among other things. Jack, along with his co-author, Chris Burniske, wrote the book on  Cryptoassets, literally.

Their book, published in late 2017, called Cryptoassets, lays down a much needed taxonomy and valuation framework for cryptoassets, making the case this is a new asset class and giving us the tools and mental models to evaluate them in exactly the same way as we would stocks, bonds, real estate, and commodities.

“We wrote Cryptoassets to cut against the grain of thinking that claimed bitcoin and its digital siblings were a niche movement, and instead to emphasize to investors that this represents the greatest opportunity for investors and entrepreneurs since the Web.”

— Jack Tatar & Chris Burniske

In this episode, Jack and I cover:

✓ What is a cryptoasset?

✓ How do we reconcile the competing narratives about Bitcoin specifically and cryptoassets more specifically?

✓ Thoughts on this time never different (i.e. similarities to the dot-com bubble)

✓ Bitcoin as an alternative investment appropriate for retirement portfolios

✓ Risk and logistical challenges that make it different from other alternative investments

✓ When we can expect the institutionalization of cryptoassets
