My guest today is my friend, Scott Melker, the Wolf of All Streets.

Prior to jumping down the Crypto rabbit hole, Scott Melker, also known as The Melker Project, had a 20-year music career and was a world-renowned producer and DJ.

In our conversation we discuss the larger market conditions, the future of NFTs, growing an audience, and best practices for aspiring crypto traders and investors. We begin our conversation by discussing the broader market conditions. We discuss Bitcoin’s current bearish divergence and the impact the Fed’s tightening policies may have on the crypto markets. Scott did an excellent job at giving context of the current volatile conditions by asking the listeners to zoom out and understand we are still very early in the adoption curve of digital assets. One of the more important conversation topics was how for the first time crypto is considered by the broader investment community as an established asset class and how that changes the market dynamics for long term investors. Our conversation naturally transitions to advice on how to navigate the volatile market conditions, Scott shares a ton of actionable advice on how to tackle the volatility and why this could be a generational buying opportunity. Our next conversation topic centered around NFTs. Scott’s unique experience has given him clear insights on the future applications of NFTs and the impact on creators. Scott emphasizes the need for creators to accrue 1,000 true fans to develop a loyal fan base and how NFTs give creators more ways to accrue those 1,000 true fans. The last portion of our discussion centered around how the digital asset space is evolving and what sectors we believe will be narrative drivers throughout 2022. Scott explains why he believes rollups and layer-2s will dominate the narrative. We also discuss why Bitcoin dominance may continue to decline as the digital asset space continues to mature. This conversation is full of alpha and actionable advice. Please enjoy my conversation with my friend, Scott Melker.
