Ep. 350 - Deep Dive on Ampleforth (AMPL), w/ co-founders Evan Kuo and Brandon Iles


In this episode of CRYPTO 101, sponsored by God’s Unchained, we sat down with Evan Kuo and Brandon Iles of Ampleforth (AMPL). We first had Ampleforth on the show in late 2019, when AMPL was below a $1 million market cap. In the summer of 2020, AMPL’s market cap spiked up to over $665 million, and has since settled between $150-$200 million. Looking strictly at the numbers, the adoption and demand for AMPL is very obvious. What isn’t so obvious, and what we spend our time discussing, is WHY Ampleforth has made such a lasting impact on the crypto market. We ask the co-founder’s what surprised them most after unleashing their project into the wild. We analyze the pros and cons of DeFi, we discuss the concept of diversification in the crypto markets, we take a look at the upcoming releases that Ampleforth has planned, and we clarify the novel “rebasing” mechanism that Ampleforth pioneered.
