Will Clemente & Dylan LeClair | Bitcoin & Macro: 2023 Outlook & 2022 Year In Review

On today's episode of On the Margin, Will Clemente and Dylan LeClair join Mike to discuss Bitcoin's 2023 outlook. Bitcoin is a liquidity gauge, and the markets are drying up. We explore what we expect from macro, how the Fed will respond and what this means for crypto, bonds and currency markets. Will and Dylan then explain Bitcoin's correlation to macro, why Bitcoin has "failed" to be an inflation hedge and their (bullish) investment thesis.

Finally, we close with a conversation on Bitcoin miners, Silvergate/Genesis and projections for crypto in 2023!
