Eric Peters is the Founder and CEO of One River Digital Asset Management. In this episode, he joins the Bankless Podcast to bring the perspective of a traditional hedge fund manager into a crypto context. Spending his career in the markets, his insights to the macro environment are vast and inform his investing decisions, and he sees crypto as a pathway to a renaissance – but also to a dystopia.
Seeing a ‘quantum’ level change underway, Eric explores the bumpy road ahead with thoughtful views on generation gaps, income inequality, and the power of digital assets. Eric’s approach is a pragmatic one, addressing the crypto revolution in realistic terms that makes these paradigm shifts feel simultaneously instant and drawn out.
