In Summary

A quick summary of the topics discussed in this lecture.


Investors should carefully consider volatility and novelty risk for all digital assets categories.


We are still in the early stages of the adoption curve.


We believe the more well-established cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin or Ethereum deserve consideration in investor portfolios today.


Arguments for allocation to cryptocurrencies include: a) The value proposition of blockchain technology, b) The economic backdrop, c) Transparent on-chain data and fundamentals, d) And the positive regulatory progress


Conservative investors should likely avoid digital assets given their volatility, but a small allocation within a growth-seeking portfolio could offer additional diversification and improve risk-adjusted returns.
