16:00 Any thoughts on an exit strategy out of AMZN and into TSLA? If current relevant holdings are 100% AMZN / 0% TSLA… with other funds already allocated how would you (all) approach adjusting the mix between the 2? I’m tempted to flip the set to 0% AMZN / 100% TSLA and just bet on the ‘faster horse’.

21:00 Why do you not invest in Privacy Tokens like Monero?
Evil Flanders

I completely understand the value of privacy tokens
However, for a token that come truly viable it will need institutional adoption
