  • Dan Morehead on Zcash Founder and CEO of Pantera Capital

    Zcash is Bitcoin plus three enhancements:

    Selective transparency
    GPU mining to prevent centralization
    Potentially more effective governance

    . . . Zcash is the super-set of Bitcoin.

  • Dan Morehead on Bitcoin Founder and CEO of Pantera Capital

    Countless people must migrate to support family. The cost to remit? An entire month's pay.

    Bitcoin—as a global, free, instantaneous payment rail—will help many expatriate families retain hard-earned income.

    Essentially free and instantaneous to Skype anywhere on Earth—but sending $300 internationally takes days and costs a meaningful chunk.

    In general, I think cash and payments are one of the last areas blockchain will affect. . . . While Bitcoin may win digital gold, I don’t think it’ll succeed as money: it’s too volatile, isn’t designed to be money, and has no dynamic monetary policy (which is part of why gold was abandoned as a form of payment in society).

  • Joey Krug on EOS Co-Chief Investment Officer at Pantera Capital

    A permissionless dapp/protocol like 0x or Augur could barely run on EOS, and would probably eventually get censored by the block producers at some point. EOS has played with the slider between centralization / decentralization and scalability. *That is not innovation!* Innovating is when you do something new and do something that makes things better *without* having to face some severe tradeoff.

  • Dan Morehead on Tether Founder and CEO of Pantera Capital

    Tether is the ultimate fiat currency. (“Latin for "let it be done" the word fiat is a binding edict issued by a person in command.”) Tethers are created out of thin air simply because the owners of Bitfinex/Tether say so. If it was backed by anything they would allow an audit.
