2019 Outlook from WDAS: Metastable Capital, Nathaniel Popper, Multicoin Capital, Near Protocol, Cryptokitties, Primitive Ventures, LayerX

We have prepared a very special episode for our listeners just in time as we go into 2019. I emceed and moderated at the World Digital Assets Summit in San Francisco this past week, and also got the chance to speak with a number of fantastic funds,projects and reporters who were present. As we go into the New Years with some uncertainty as an industry, it is refreshing to hear different perspectives from a number of thoughtful, experienced individuals on their outlook for 2019.

This podcast is a compilation of 7 separate conversations that I had with individuals and I highly recommend you to listen to each and every one of those conversations. On the funds side, I spoke with Haseeb Qureshi from Metastable Capital, Kyle Samani from Multicoin Capital, Alex Rusnak from LayerX, Martina Long from Primitive Ventures. I had the pleasure of catching up with Nathaniel Popper from the NY Times. And on the projects side, I spoke to founder of NEAR Protocol Ilia Polosukhin and Cryptokitties’ Chief Business Officer Mik Nayeem.
