Anthony “The Mooch” Scaramucci - Why Bitcoin Will Become The World’s Currency (And Why DeFi Curbs The Systemic Risk)


Founder of SkyBridge Capital

I’m absolutely delighted to be welcoming today’s guest back into the London Real hot seat. He’s a man who has a wealth of experience and knowledge from his years working across a broad spectrum of industries, from finance to publishing and of course a now well-documented stint in the White House.

I am of course talking about friend of the show and former Director of Communications for then-President Donald Trump – Anthony Scaramucci. The ‘Mooch’ as friends and former colleagues often refer to him is a financier, entrepreneur, business leader, author, political commentator and now Bitcoin investor.

Like myself, he spent many years front and centre on Wall St in the dog eat dog world of financial investment and trading, despite graduating Harvard with a law degree. He served his time at Goldman Sachs rising to Vice President in the bank’s Private Wealth Management Division.

He founded the hugely successful Oscar Capital Management before selling up and starting again and establishing what has been his legacy move, SkyBridge Capital. SkyBridge is an investment adviser and global alternative investment manager that invests in hedge funds, private equity, real estate and now cryptocurrency, which is why I’m so pleased he could join us to share his thoughts and expertise.

The last 12 months have been hard for everyone to varying degrees and financially things have changed drastically. Wealth needs to be created or at least maintained, but, requires research and consistent innovation. Anthony saw the opportunity in Bitcoin and what this could mean in a world where the Federal Reserve has printed unprecedented amounts of money.

He created a Bitcoin Fund at the end of last year and hasn’t looked back. In fact, Skybridge Capital has “about $500 million” in Bitcoin as of June 2021 and given his assertion, based on the work his team have conducted, that the 125 million global users of Bitcoin will rise to 1 billion by 2025, his investment will reap some serious rewards.

Anthony highlights that despite the attention, press be it positive or negative and the incredible rise of decentralised finance, this remains very early days, in fact, we’ve barely got started. Which is why we are bringing you this vital information, and an array of expert guests, so you too can benefit.

One thread each of our interviewees this last few months has in common is to encourage you to get educated. To learn about this incredible new space that is opening up, where anybody with a smartphone can get involved. That’s exactly what Anthony Scaramucci and his team of researchers at SkyBridge Capital did – they spent three years looking at Bitcoin, investigating, researching, clarifying and monitoring the market.

We are experiencing a huge shift, we’re living through a digital revolution and cryptocurrency is the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. And now is the time to act, to investigate, to read and learn about how decentralised finance and cryptocurrency can help shape a better future for you and your family.

There’s less than a week to go join my new DeFi Academy Accelerator program and places are filling up fast.

This is an opportunity to get ahead of the curve, understand the complexities and nuances of the crypto market and exactly what decentralised finance is is going to mean for you and billions of people around the world.

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.

Lock in your spot now by applying to be part of The Greatest Dislocation of Wealth in Human History, and let me know why you should be included in this incredible program.

Will you finally create that generational wealth that you’ve struggled to build your whole life or will you let another of life’s chances pass you by? This is the opportunity you’ve been waiting for!

Today Anthony Scaramucci will provide his wisdom and insight. This is a man who has years of trading and investment experience behind him. He’s worked at the highest office in the land under one of the most divisive political figures in history and lived to tell the tale. When Anthony Scarmucci speaks people listen, and he says Bitcoin is maintaining its “supremacy as the apex predator in digital currency.” Who are we to argue?
