Gary Vaynerchuk and Raoul Pal: The Turning Point of a New Era for Digital Assets

Gary Vaynerchuk, chairman of VaynerX and CEO of VaynerMedia, joins Raoul Pal, CEO and founder of Real Vision, to discuss how Vaynerchuk’s interest in crypto has developed and where he thinks the space is headed. As a four year old immigrant from the former Soviet Union, Vaynerchuk lived his early days in a studio apartment in Brooklyn with his parents and two siblings. Having a knack for consumer behavior from an early age, he has been able to create multiple, hugely successful businesses since then. However, a lesser known fact about Vaynerchuk is his deep involvement in the crypto space over the years, starting with his investment in Ethereum in 2016. More recently, he has been fascinated with the potential he sees in NFTs and how, in several years, they could come to dominate the digital asset environment. Join Vaynerchuk and Pal as they share their experiences and insights on this new concept called “The Metaverse”. Filmed on July 28, 2021.
