Alex Thorn, Galaxy Digital

On today's episode, Dan and Danielle sit down with Alex Thorn, Head of Firmwide Research at Galaxy Digital. At Galaxy, Alex leads a team of researchers dedicated to understanding and unpacking developments in the cryptocurrency ecosystem, producing insights for internal and external audiences. With over 15+ years of experience in blockchain research, crypto ventures, and exploring the intersection of traditional finance and digital assets, he really breaks things down for us. He advises where venture capital money is going and if VCs need a different knowledge set to invest in protocol level start-ups, talks about his passion for wanting to move away from speculation to fundamentals to dive in and use the protocol, what the most important things being built on layer 2s right now are, and so much more. He also gives us some tips and tricks on building such a successful podcast, as he's host of Galaxy Brains himself. You don't want to miss this one!
