MoneyNeverSleeps: Spot Bitcoin ETF Approved | Messari’s Crypto Theses 2024 | Guest Co-host Alejandro Gutierrez

Alejandro Gutierrez joins the show again as guest co-host, and as we recorded this episode 10 hours before the SEC finally approved Spot Bitcoin ETFs, I started with a quick post-production update on what happened over the last few days.

We then get into the meat of this episode, a roundup of Messari’s Crypto Theses for 2024. We riffed on our respective Top 5 out of the 100 or so predictions from Messari CEO Ryan Selkis’s 194-page super-insightful read on key trends, people, companies, and projects to watch in 2024, which included a dive into the topic of Spot Bitcoin ETFs.

Alejandro Gutierrez is the CEO of Defactor Labs, providing all the required technological and financial tools for traditional companies to tap into alternative sources of financing using tokenized Real World Assets as collateral.
