Decentralized Finance with Julian Hosp of Cake Defi


This episode kicks off the DeFi series of the TX podcast. Our guest, Dr. Julian Hosp is the cofounder and CEO of Cake Defi – a platform that generates cash flow from cryptocurrencies and harnesses the possibilities of decentralized finance for its users. Hosp himself is an ex pro athlete and best selling author of multiple books, including “Retired by 30 – 25 stories I would tell my Younger Self” where he recounts 75 lessons learnt over his life – some of which you’ll hear in this pod!

In this episode, Hosp walks listeners through the seven functions of finance to explain what DeFi means. He tells us why being blockchain agnostic is kind of like not getting married on the first date, and what are the three main risks of investing in cryptocurrencies.
