In this episode, we talked crypto with Jacob Papageourgiou, long term investor, Founder of Bitmera, a crypto education platform, and Head of Education at London Block Exchange, a leading UK crypto exchange platform.
Jacob discusses risk averse crypto investing,  starting investing as a hobby on the side of a demanding career, and taking time over new investment decisions.

The interview includes:

  • How to define a crypto investment strategy, whether you’re risk averse or risk tolerant, using traditional investment practices such as portfolio diversification and market timing
  • The importance of research, and the crucial questions to ask before you buy, if you’re looking at crypto opportunities
  • The difference between investing in and speculating with crypto

The interview was recorded when Jacob was balancing a demanding City career with his crypto passion and portfolio. As he’s since committed fully, the interview is great for anyone looking to test an investment strategy on the side, before diving in to investing fully – in crypto or other asset classes.
