Trading, Economics, Politics and Bitcoin w. David Belle (@macrodesiac_)

December 10, 2019

We spoke to @macrodesiac_, David Belle about his approach to trading, what he thinks of the global economy and the role that central banks are playing. This was a deep economic conversation covering the US and European economies, the potential benefits that Georgism as an economic approach could bring and we even ventured into the tricky realm of British politics ahead of the 12 December 2019 election and heard more about the growing Macrodesiac brand.

ID Theory - Bitcoin and blockchain genetics

ID Theory - Bitcoin and blockchain genetics

June 18, 2019

A really great conversation with James and Graham from 'ID Theory' a thematic crypto investment vehicle. We discuss the journey James and Graham went on from being a genetic scientist and a poker entrepreneur respectively to the leaders of their newly launched crypto focussed investment fund.

Amongst other things we cover how the Bitcoin and cryptocurrency space has developed over the last 6 years and where it is heading in the near term.

Do you think of blockchain as a product of Darwinian selection? The ID Theory guys do and their thesis is well worth a read!

Orca Rising

16-year-old Ocean Daley needs to get away from school, his seaside town and wasting his summer working for his mother’s irritating boyfriend. When his mysterious Uncle Frank offers him a place at a summer school for a select group of gifted teens, he jumps at it.

But the school isn’t like any other, with classes in hacking, bike racing, psychological tricks and combat. Orca, the secretive organisation behind the school, needs fresh recruits…but for what? Ocean’s father co-founded Orca, and joining the organization feels like a way to honour his memory, as well as strengthen bonds with his strange uncle.

Orca demands each teenager push themselves beyond the possible and in return each student gets an impressive salary, international travel and exhilarating field missions — a double life. There is one catch. Joining Orca is a life-binding commitment to support their ‘noble' cause. For Ocean, it’s the challenge in life he’s been looking for.

Others might call it a trap.
