Key Highlights:

[00:01 - 11:41]  How Cryptocurrency, Blockchain, and Digital Currency Interact

  • Jeff's involvement with the crypto world began in 2013, sold in 2014, and back into it by 2017 as he worked as a financial consultant for a major US bank. At this time, Bitcoin was experiencing a bull market.
  • In 2019, Jeff started to take crypto more seriously and began investing in the asset class full-time.

[11:42 - 32:39] The Warren Buffet Methodology - Do Not Lose Money Permanently

  • Bitcoin is an asset that is being looked at more as a store of value than a medium of exchange, but that is changing. The market cap for cryptocurrencies is growing exponentially.
  • The World Economic Forum had a meeting in 2021 where they predicted the value of blockchain and crypto would be around 12.6 trillion by 2025.
  • Jeff advises what kinds of cryptocurrencies to stay away from and tackles where to invest within the layers of blockchain.
  • Rule number one is to not overcomplicate things. You don't need to over-leverage.


[32:40 - 42:47] Hedge Against Inflation Using Cryptocurrency


  • Cryptocurrency is being used as an inflation hedge, with a strong computing network and a lack of central power to print money without consequences.
  • Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies are seen as a more efficient way to conduct transactions than traditional currency systems.
  • Inflation is a major concern for many people, and Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies could help to reduce inflation rates. 
  • There are many benefits to using Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies, such as reduced corruption in other countries.

Key Quotes:

“I just had that gut feeling. It's not always a logical thing where you're like, Okay, I'm gonna make XYZ dollars over this period of time,’ it was just really something that I felt naturally gravitating towards. And I had that gut instinct in me to tell me to go all-in on it [crypocurrency investing].” - Jeff Sekinger

“I think it's actually a bigger risk now to not have exposure to it [cryptocurrency], than the risk of you having exposure to it. I think there's no denying that we're moving into a digital economy.” - Jeff Sekinger

“Number one is to not overcomplicate things, you don't need to over-leverage. You don't need to buy the next meme coin that's going to do a 100,000,000% return in the next 60 days. It's good to bet on fundamentals and have proper diversification ” - Jeff Sekinger
