Exponential Age/Tech/Venture Capital Resources

Alright, guys!

We have been doing this whole series on the exponential age but we need to build a paradigm to invest and monitor it. See my original post on democratizing finance and building paradigm for the spreadsheet that I made with all the resources on global macro and crypto:

Basically, I want to add a new section with resources on tech, exponential trends, venture investing, and basically anything on the edge of innovation. This can be venture funds, articles, specific people you follow, Twitter accounts/threads, books, companies you are looking at, quotes and basically anything!

We need to build something out so that we have a process for identifying exceptional exponential trends. Since all of us are from a variety of backgrounds, each person can provide unique resources that will be able to view the world from a specific lens. It would be awesome if everyone contributed to this!!!! If you are a human being on planet earth then you have something to contribute.

I will aggregate all the resources and add them to the spreadsheet. Again, see the link to my previous post for the link to the spreadsheet. I will do another post with an aggregation of all the resources and the spreadsheet.

Updated Market Notes (+4 Videos): BOJ shift. Monex Earnings On BTC price action. UBS.. Nomura.

4 areas of focus hit headlines at once. I decided to just make separate video clips for each topic, so a 3 min into + 4 videos following.

These were supposed to go out yesterday. Turns out that writing everything out would’ve been more timely after all. Oh well- still experimenting here. Let me know any feedback please, thanks as always!

I. Intro


III. Monex: the BTC driver


V. Nomura

I. Intro (3min) & NOTE: global markets are WITHOUT Japan flows for the next 7 days of holiday (USTs, NDX, BTC, EM FX could see direct impact absent one of largest players)

II. BOJ April Policy Meeting Review: Was NOT a non-event

III. 8968 MONEX Group Earnings were released Mon after close, this was supposed to go out before Japan market open this morning- apologies. but video still applies of course

Previous Note: Theory: Monex has become more BTC than GBTC, and even more than BTC itself (theory explained)
(see more charts below)

IV. UBS - “surprise!” -$774mn loss on Archegos to join the club. Why their temporary silence is deafening

V. Nomura (uploading)

Additional Charts & material:

Own Your Enemy

In response to @Jaymes Rosenthal ’s latest video post (and meant to do this for a while but forgot/just reminded) 


  1. What is your enemy that you need to own? 
  2. What part of your portfolio do you hate? (“nothing” = not good, add hate allocation ASAP) 

↓ clip from The Discourse episode 2 on owning your enemy

See The Discourse episode 2 w/ @Jaymes Rosenthal here

  • Trading 20 > VIX <  80
  • Trading for work vs Investing for life
  • Don’t avoid your enemy, take an ownership stake
  • Thoughts on Hedgeye
  • Work/life balance Get away from work for the sake of work
  • Don’t be overwhelmed by finance, there is never a “finish line,” and moving goalposts = every market participant is a clueless amateur
