Alex Fazel - How To Make Money In A Crypto Bear Market: Stablecoins, Passive Income & Generating Yield


Chief Partnership Officer at SwissBorg

Today’s guest is Alex Fazel, the cryptocurrency evangelist, TEDx speaker, broadcaster, and Blockchain educator.

Alex is the Chief Partnership Officer at SwissBorg, a team of finance and technology experts dedicated to democratising crypto wealth management by making it fun, fair and community-centric.

This is Alex’s third appearance on London Real and many of you may know him from our 10 Year Anniversary Special back in 2021 where he interviewed me about London Real’s first decade of broadcasting.

Alex is an incredibly smart guy and knows the cryptocurrency industry inside out. He’s passionate about DeFi and the Blockchain space and his positive energy always makes for an enlightening and insightful debate.

SwissBorg’s goal is to open up decentralised investment opportunities to the masses, and with over half a million active community users and currently ranked Top 5 for largest DeFi liquidity providers on the planet, they’re well on their way to achieving that target.

SwissBorg was awarded the 2021 Mass Adoption Project of the Year and the 2021 AI App of the Year at the AIBC awards and was named one of the Top 100 Swiss Fintech Startups of 2021 Swiss Startup Awards, underlining their impressive progress.

Alex is also the host of Cryptonites, the popular YouTube channel dedicated to blockchain and cryptocurrency education that’s also featured me as a guest alongside crypto luminaries Alex Mashinsky, Erik Voorhees, Dan Held and many more.

On today’s show, Alex and I will be discussing in greater detail exactly what is happening in the market and what specific investment opportunities are presenting themselves as we come towards the end of the first quarter. From proof of stake blockchains like Polkadot, Matic and Ethereum to the best single coin staking options to maximise your passive income returns, we’ll be covering everything you need to know to make money in a crypto bear market.

If you’re keen to unlock your potential earning power and join my expanding group of new students, then there’s still time to join my four-week crypto bootcamp.

I’ve just held the opening keynote with a truly impressive and enthusiastic group of willing students and you can lock in your place ahead of Thursday’s live workshop call at 6pm UK Time.

DeFi and the Blockchain will completely revolutionise the way we as consumers understand and interact with our money.

It is the reason why my team and I are going all-in and plan on spending the next 10 years teaching, understanding, investing in and profiting from this exciting new marketplace.

So make sure you lock in your spot now and be part of The Greatest Dislocation of Wealth in Human History.

Alex, like me, is keen to spread the word, and educate as many people as possible about the opportunity in our midst. So be sure to tune in and share this vital information with friends and family who are keen to make a lasting change in their lives.

These conversations are incredibly important and each and every guest I welcome onto the show is playing a fundamental role in building the Decentralised Finance ecosystem of the future that in turn is bringing financial freedom back to the people.
