If central banks continue to prop up asset markets, will they inevitably debase their currency? And if so – how can investors protect their portfolios? Dan Tapiero, founder of DTAP Capital and co-founder of Gold Bullion International, joins Raoul Pal, CEO and co-founder of Real Vision, to explore these questions and more. Tapiero argues that the Federal Reserve will likely do whatever it takes to re-inflate asset prices by printing trillions more dollars – which he and Raoul agree can only be good for gold. Raoul and Dan discuss bitcoin as an unprecedented call option on the future, full of asymmetric upside, and discuss the proper allocation of gold and bitcoin at this unprecedented phase of central bank dovishness. In addition, Tapiero shares why he believes physical gold and mining stocks are superior to gold ETFs, which he calls "paper gold."

BadgerDAO: Bridging Bitcoin to Native Yield Strategies
Santiago Velez, entrepreneur and digital assets investor for Block Digital Corporation & AD, Inc., sits down with Chris Spadafora, founder of BadgerDAO, to discuss his background, the journey to found BadgerDAO, wrapped digital assets, risk, governance, and his thoughts on the crypto ecosystem. Following several years of investing in the space, Spadafora came to the conclusion that there was a lack of Bitcoin that can be wrapped or ported off of the bitcoin network and used as a utility on other blockchains. Spadafora asked, "How do you build an open community and project that wants to enable Bitcoin to work in a trusted and non-custodial way in addition to having an organization or business that is managed by the people vs a traditional corporate structure?" He recognized that the smart contract capabilities of Ethereum met a lot of the needs he was looking for in trying to utilize the liquidity of Bitcoin. While there are other protocols building on top of the Bitcoin network, Spadafora believes that the robustness of the smart contract technology that Ethereum built, in addition to the lack of liquidity and lack of interoperability in relation to the tools for daily usage, were key to fulfilling that vision. Filmed on May 6, 2021. Key learnings: To date, 1% of Bitcoin has been wrapped to port over to other blockchains. Spadafora believes that, moving forward, there will be anywhere between 20-40% of all Bitcoin will be wrapped and living on other chains because it is the ultimate collateral. While seeing the appreciation of Bitcoin in one’s wallet is good, being able to use it, put it to work, and have access to different financial services and applications that are traditionally reserved to hedge funds brings the power back to the people. Spadafora identifies that DeFi users have access to many great opportunities to gain interest; however, it requires too many steps, knowledge, and fees. Meanwhile, BadgerDAO allows for users to earn anywhere between 5%-30% interest on their Bitcoin while still retaining custody of their digital assets.

Exponential Megatrends in Healthcare: Data as "The Third Window Into Humanity"
John Nosta, innovation theorist and President of NostaLab, joins Real Vision senior editor Ash Bennington to share his thesis for exponential technological change from the frontlines of the rapidly-changing healthcare industry. Nosta argues that the pace of technological adoption is non-linear, noting that it took 67 years for the airline industry to reach 50 million users while it took Facebook only 3 years to reach the same mark – and a mere 19 days for Pokémon GO. Nosta shares with Bennington the many ways in which healthcare is at the forefront of this exponential change, such as gene editing, telemedicine, personalized X-Rays and EKGs, and collection of ambient biodata. Bennington and Nosta also discuss the history of innovation, the role of data privacy, and the steps technology firms need to take in order to remain at the cutting edge. Filmed on May 11, 2021. Key learnings: Nosta contends that the pace of technological change is faster than ever and will only accelerate—nowhere is this more true than the world of healthcare. Nosta challenges the mantra "build it and they will come," contending that the rate of adoption is just as important as the rate of innovation.
