Kyle Samani, the Managing Partner at Multicoin Capital was recently present on “Balancing The Ledger” show, a tech and finance intersect. The panel discussed some of the recent news in the crypto world, which included the cryptocurrency advertisements ban lift by Facebook.

Kyle thinks that it is good for the ecosystem, as Facebook is a good social media platform to communicate the upcoming innovations in the blockchain world to the billions of Facebook users.

Further, Samani shared his view on the $300 million worth venture fund by Andreessen Horowitz. He says that it is always good to raise funds through a known entity like Andreessen Horowitz, since crypto investments are new in the market.

EOS is one of the successful ICOs supported by Multicoin Capital. Samani spoke about the recent issues which EOS blockchain faced due to the system bugs. He concurred that though the EOS team had enough resources, they failed to perform as expected.

Samani also pointed out the poor performance of Ethereum back in 2015 when its blockchain was launched. According to him, the performance of the EOS is much better than the initial phase of Ethereum.

When asked about his choice of cryptocurrency, Samani seemed to be bullish about Ethereum [ETH] considering its popularity and explosive growth. He says:

“If you asked me to pick one token today and come back in 10 years, I would select Ethereum.”

While speaking of Litecoin [LTC], Samani mentioned that, in his view, Litecoin has no reason to exist and the only investment thesis he has ever heard for Litecoin is that it is a testnet for Bitcoin.

He concluded by sharing his opinion about Ripple [XRP]:



“It is clear to us that Ripple is a security. We do not know when that news is going to drop, however the catalysts seem to have kind of gone away from Ripple”

According to Samani, the issue with being a security is that none of the exchange platforms in the U.S have relevant license to trade the highly regulated cryptocurrencies. It will be a multiyear process before any of those venues obtain official certification.

He finally mentioned:

“If Ripple is labeled a security formally by the SEC, all of the cryptocurrency exchanges are going to stop trading it. So if that happens, liquidity is going to dry up on XRP and the price will plummet.”
