In this week’s episode Talks about the market, Cointelegraph welcomes Brenda Gentry, or as she is known on Twitter, Cryptomom. Gentry has more than 15 years of experience in traditional banking. She started researching and investing in cryptocurrencies during the 2020 lockdown and made significant returns in 2021, then launched Gentry Media Productions. Currently, it is on a mission to represent more women and minorities Web3, decentralized finance (DeFi) and non-fungible tokens (NFTs).
We’re getting started message from the Bank of International Settlements, which found that the average retail investor lost 50% of their bitcoins (BTC) investments over the past seven years. We ask Gentry what she thinks about this, given her background in finance, as well as some ways crypto investors can avoid becoming part of this statistic.
Sports betting it’s all the rage now, with nonstop ads from various companies encouraging people to participate, and sports commentators talking about it during their shows to get more people interested. We ask Gentry about her newly acquired sports betting platform, BundleBets, and why and how she became interested in the business.
If you ask 10 people what Web3 is, you will get 10 different answers. We get Gentry’s take on what Web3 means to her and how she sees it growing and evolving as we move forward. Plot! He cannot use any of the current buzzwords to define it.
What we would all like to forget Terra and the whole FTX debacle, you really can’t have a conversation about crypto without mentioning one. We get Gentry’s experience with it all and how she survived it. We also ask her what her simple trading strategy is in a post-FTX world where you never know which company might go up next.
One of the main factors contributing to the success of cryptocurrencies are retail investors. Understandably, most of them are hesitant to go into space after the events of FTX and Terra. What things do they need to see or hear to entice them back into crypto?
We cover all of that and more, so make sure you stay tuned until the end, as Cointelegraph Markets & Research will also be taking your questions and comments during the show, so be sure to have them ready.
