The Future of Crypto: Asset-backed lending for crypto – Zac Prince, Robert Kiyosaki, Kim Kiyosaki


The future for cryptocurrencies is bright, but one thing that has held it back from being adopted by the masses is its ability to be used in the existing financial system. 

As crypto continues to grow, today’s guest believes you’re going to need the ability to earn interest on your Bitcoin, to use your Bitcoin as collateral for a loan, and the ability to seamlessly transfer and integrate your Bitcoin holdings with the financial services that exist for other asset classes.  

Zac Prince, CEO & Founder of BlockFi says, “BlockFi’s lending platform makes it easy for people to take out a crypto asset-backed loan. Customers can apply in less than 2 minutes and many of our clients go from application-to-funding in as few as 1.5 hours.” 

Hosts Robert and Kim Kiyosaki are joined by Zac Prince to discuss why asset-backed lending is the future for this asset class, and how BlockFi is bridging the world of traditional finance and blockchain technology. 

Special offer for listeners:  For a limited time, get a bonus of $50 in BTC when you deposit $500 or more in crypto at BlockFi.  Sign up here:

    Over the past week, multiple industry analysts andB!tcoin supporters discussed why they believe that amidst a bearish market, it was important to focus on BTC’s long-term price movements. The Bitcoinmarket, at this point, is undoubtedly at an indecisive juncture. On one hand, the king coin’s price has remained sluggish over the past few weeks, while on the other hand, a few metrics (like the net entities’ growth and illiquid supply change) seem to paint a positive picture. Well, at this point, market participants do not have a definite answer to the nature of the runBTC is experiencing. However, when in doubt, the best thing to do is zoom out and look at the bigger picture. In that perspective, Bitcoinseems to be in a mini bear cycle within its larger bull cycle. The marketis in the state of Extreme Fear due to the current fall but now is not the time to despair because this fallpresents the perfect opportunity for trαders to get more of theassets. I have come to realize it’s safer to trαde because of scenarios like this, I trαde daily with signals from Thomas Fuller and I have been profitable in my lnvestments making over 10BT C from my initial 3₿T C portfolio. Thomas is an expert trαder and trαde coach who provides trαde signals and trαde courses for less experienced trαders and I can attest to the accuracy of his trαde signals and he can be reached on ͲҽӀҽGᖇᗩᗰ (Fullertrades) and ω𝐇𝓐𝓽ѕ𝓐ρ𝐩 (+44 7862 067653) for more inquiries into his services.

    It sounds that the busienss is built on high return on arbitrage. As soon as the arbitragers cant make 9-10% return, they cant afford to borrow from BlockFi. Hence BlockFi cant pays 8.6% to depositors anymore. Let alone there will be more and more competitors into this lending spaces to compete on rates. It all sounds like 1980's private loan businesses to me….

    Robert should not invest in Bitcoin or any crypto currencies. He has a lot to learn. I appreciate his tough questions but his lack of knowledge of the industry is obvious.

    commenting for robert kiyosaki- zac is saying anyone can start a cryptocurrency with their computer, but they cannot make another bitcoin because of its network effect and reputation obviously. there are so many other crypto currencies which is obvious that you can start one but none is as successful as bitcoin due to its network effect which is near to impossible to create. thank you.

    The problem is that crypto is already showing that its goal is to bring us all into a cashless society. This is enough to keep me far from it. Moreover, I do not participate in financial pyramids and systems that are not transparent enough to feel safe usiing. Some things are unavoidable. Crypto future is if only people start seeing its true colours.

    I can buy a gold mine on eBay by buying an old unused abandoned mining claim and go dig and dilute the market cap of gold…. Verrrrrrrrryyyy slowlyyyyyy….

    Bitcoin is not a brand it is a network that people have chosen to adopt and no it doesn't take any old computer if you want to keep up with the pace of mining you have to buy the latest and greatest mining rig with more computational power which cost thousands of dollars or you can get an older generation mining rig and mine at a slower rate and those get paid at a slower rate

    July 18, 2021 at 10:59 pm

    Robert is not finishing his question hey means what is to stop them from creating their own cryptocurrency and diluting the market cap of Bitcoin am I correct Robert

    what I want to know is if the Federal reserve can print an infinite number of Fiat dollars what's to keep them from buying up the limited supply Bitcoin huh huh huh?

  26. Xiloe Teknowledgies LLC
    July 18, 2021 at 10:59 pm

    Robert it's simple if they make off with the loan of Fiat dollars then blockfi simply sell off their Bitcoin

    The reason Robert was a little full on was unfortunatly Zac was not able to explain in detail without changing the subject to how he is able to pay 8.6% and how he can promise a high yield. I would have liked to hear more about what Zac had to say without talking too hearing too much about robots gold mine. Everything has risk, but with knowledge minimise risk. I think it was explained about the risk to crazy Joe, he said if you need to borrow $5000 cash you would need to have 10,000 worth of bitcoin in his storage. So if Joe was to run off with the $5000 he would be down $10k worth of bitcoin.
    My question is what if the "Value" of bitcoin was say 10k you lend out the $5k cash and the market devalued to say $1000 bitcoin what happens then? liquidation would mean you take the Bitcoin to cover the loan but how does the person pay the $5k if the value of the bitcoin is $1000? does he foreclose on the loan?

    You can’t just mine BTC as it consumes a lot of power. And the more miners join the network, the more hash rate it is, the harder it is to compute math and validates transaction. That is why BTC miners usually have a warehouse of computers with lots of air conditioning and solar power. It is expensive to mine validate transactions but you get rewarded with bitcoins as an incentive. You can’t just mine with your laptop or it will he fried or kaboom

    ICO's are the modern way to fund money to your company, relying on digital contracts bound by the network.. It gives no barrier to entry in whichever or whatever walk of life you are..
