    Vance Spencer is the Co-Founder of Framework Ventures, a VC firm that got its claim to fame by sticking around during the 2018-2020 bear market, going all-in on DeFi before we had a name for it, and taking risks and finding gems while everyone else fled the industry. This is Vance's 4th appearance on Bankless, because in addition to being a chad VC, he's also adept at measuring the markets and understanding metas, which is what we're looking to do here today. Bitcoin is down 66% from the top, but up 50% from the bottom! ETH Down 66% from the top, but up 75% from the bottom! Solana down 90%, but up 200% from the bottom! Meanwhile, Ethereum's L2 ecosystem is HOT. OP is hitting ATHs. RPL is at its highs in ETH terms, nearing highs in USD terms… Aptos is somehow at a 16B valuation. Question: Where are we???

    ✨ DEBRIEF | Unpacking the Episode: https://shows.banklesshq.com/p/debrief-molly-white  After many episodes, we finally brought on a crypto skeptic, Molly White! We brought Molly on to take us out of our crypto bubble, to challenge our assumptions, and to steelman the anti-crypto argument. Molly White is an engineer, public goods contributor, and an extremely articulate crypto critic. She also runs the web3 skeptic website: https://web3isgoinggreat.com/ In today's episode, Molly gives us her central claim on why web3 isn't actually going so great, why she thinks tokens make everything worse, and why—despite acknowledging some of the good—Molly believes crypto is a net negative to the world…and probably will be in the near future. P.S. Keep in mind, this episode was recorded on October 7, 2022 — way before any of the FTX meltdown occurred this past week. ------
