Moritz Seibert returns to the show today to discuss the challenges of managing large amounts of cash in a high-inflationary environment, the importance of maintaining a healthy attitude during long winning-streaks, the resurgence & resilience of the GameStop short-squeeze, Bitcoin reaching $60,000, the importance of prioritising process over outcome, the new VIX ETFs for Bitcoin & Ethereum, and whether or not Gold is a safe long-term investment.


In this episode, we discuss:

  • Smart ways to manage cash during periods of high inflation
  • Staying humble during long winning periods
  • The GameStop short-squeeze
  • New volatility-based ETFs for Cryptocurrencies
  • Why analysing the outcome instead of the process may prove costly in the long run
  • Can we still call Gold a 'safe-haven' asset?
