Why Crypto Volatility Is on the Rise Ahead of 2022
Darius Sit, co-founder and managing partner of QCP Capital, speaks to host and producer of the Crypto Unstacked Podcast Leslie Lamb about his outlook for the DeFi sector. Being Singapore-based, Sit is at the heart of the Asian financial markets and digital asset community. After a recent meeting with Paul Tudor Jones, Sit came away with enlightening insights on inflation within digital assets. While global fiat inflation is viewed as bullish for crypto, Sit learned from his meeting with Jones that inflation is rampant in the digital asset space itself. The advent of Dogecoin and the Shiba Inu token demonstrates the inflationary nature of crypto as many new tokens come online with multiple tokens idolizing the same breed of dog. In addition, Sit gives us his outlook for 2022 and explains why we may see some volatility in the months ahead. Recorded on December 7, 2021.
