TradeStation: Building a Crypto Trading Platform from the Ground Up
The moment short-term trader James Putra, senior director and head of strategy at TradeStation, decided to trade exclusively in crypto was pivotal in creating TradeStation’s crypto trading platform. From setting up his first mining rig to educating TradFi firms on this new sector, Putra noticed a substantial division between the tech-dominant crowd populating early crypto companies and the traditional finance folks he was used to. These two crowds didn’t always "speak the same language," as he puts it. Acting as an intermediary between these two worlds, Putra has been able to incorporate the wisdom of TradFi into the immensely volatile world of crypto that gives traders a leg up in harnessing such volatility. Interviewed by Ash Bennington on July 15, 2021.

SEC v. Ripple: Explained
Brad Mills, host of the Magic Internet Money Podcast, interviews seasoned attorneys Donna Redel, CEO and founder of Strategic 50, and Joe Carlasare, partner at SmithAmundsen LLC and co-chair of The Cryptocurrency, Blockchain and FinTech Group, to discuss the developing lawsuit against Ripple and what it means more broadly for crypto. Charged with conducting $1.3 billion worth of unregistered securities offerings, Ripple has been accused of operating much like a corrupt central bank as their executives are suspected of liquidating huge sums into XRP rallies, upwards of $400 million in some cases. But, will the SEC have legal grounds to classify XRP as a security, and what will it mean for the rest of the space? Redel and Carlasare walk viewers through all this and touch on the regulatory environment as a whole to give an idea of where regulation is headed. Filmed on July 20, 2021.

How Cathie Wood's Unique Research Has Her Bullish on Tesla and EVs
Cathie Wood, founder and CEO of ARK Investment Management LLC, joins 13D Research & Strategy founder and CEO Kiril Sokoloff to walk through her distinct research approach that allows the team at ARK to identify disruptive technologies and how this has led to her evaluation of the auto industry’s future. As someone whose research is macro-focused and first principles-based, Wood describes her investment process by explaining ARK's deep research into Tesla’s developments of innovative battery technology and chip design that leaves competitors who are beholden to traditional design cycles behind in the dust. She also expounds on how her bottom-up research is differentiated from others, allowing ARK to map out the exponential growth trends of emerging tech on the macro level. From there, Sokoloff and Wood consider how the convergence of various secular trends will flip the auto industry on its head such as ride-hailing, autonomous driving, vertical integrations of manufacturers, and shifts in consumer preferences.

Bringing Traditional Games Into the Metaverse
Creator of the first video game ever produced in the Philippines, Gabby Dizon, co-founder and CEO of Yield Guild Games, is now recruiting traditional game developers to adopt tokenized economies. Joined by Piers Kicks, a member of the investment team at Bitkraft, Dizon gives viewers a rundown on the process by which Yield Guild is tokenizing existing gaming economies and the incentives this creates for both gamers and developers. Axie Infinity, a game which incorporates a proprietary currency and NFTs, is one of YGG's most successful partners, experiencing tremendous success in the growth of their network. The "play-to-earn" model, yielding some Axie Infinity players close to $1000 per month, is especially effective in the Philippines where starting wages are around $200 a month.

Cathie Wood: Creative Disruption and the Sectors It Will Devastate
13D Research & Strategy founder and CEO Kiril Sokoloff welcomes long-time friend and the world’s greatest innovation investor in public markets Cathie Wood, founder and CEO of ARK Investment Management LLC. Drawing on her professional and personal life experiences, Wood shares how they have shaped her perspective on the rapidly evolving exponential trends that will disrupt the investment landscape—and sooner than many expect. She projects that transformative innovation will lift the market cap in publicly-traded companies focused in these technologies from $14 trillion to $75 trillion in the next five to ten years, which threatens to make nearly half of the companies in the S&P 500 obsolete. As well, Sokoloff and Wood explore the challenges posed to the asset management industry as it has been slow to adjust to the high-speed pace of this technological change. Taking into account the Fed’s ongoing dovish policy stance, the movement of bond yields, and the shift to a consumption of services, Wood also unpacks her insights into the cyclical deflationary set-up she sees unfolding.
