Speaking to the opaque nature of the crypto market Jesse said "… how can we take the complexity of all these different assets, with different names and put them into human language, so that anyone can understand and make decisions about investing."

"There is a CNBC article that said 1 in 3 investors in this asset class don't actually understand what they are investing in. And that hurts my heart. I want people to know what they are getting involved in when they are making investments." This is why Makara pairs a heavy dose of education with its investing platform, to provide knowledge as well as a great product.

In this episode you will hear about: 1. Building technology that all investors can benefit and learn from 2. Benefits of regulation in the crypto industry 3. Makara’s current lineup of baskets, and how to determine which ones are right for you
