Reviews for Unus Sed Leo

  • Su Zhu on Unus Sed Leo Founder and CEO of Three Arrows Capital

    Exchange tokens BNB [and] LEO have a historical precedent in the form of Membership Seats of futures exchanges. These seats give the holder the right to trade on the exchange at discounted fees.

    Nymex (where oil is traded) seats went from $10k to $10mill (1000x) from 1971 to 2008.

    LEO is like a not terrible version of BNB but they're both very distant from resembling equity, or really any credible claim on cash flow

  • Ari Paul on Unus Sed Leo Co-founder and CIO of BlockTower Capital

    I think of LEO as kind of an option "strangle." As a holder, the steady state expectation is ongoing price rise from supply reduction. Owners are short a downside put of regulatory risk or bankruptcy and own an upside call of the ~$800m seized funds being returned.

    $LEO is a USD denominated corporate bond, with frequent lump sum buy backs. When it's repaid it will hit parity. Expecting LEO to moon is like the joke about expecting USDT to moon. The price relates to interest rate vs market and risk perception (plus interim exchange discounts)
