Welcome to another episode of Coppercasts!

For the 14th edition, we're joined by Philip Gradwell, Chief Economist at Chainalysis.

Launched in 2014, Chainalysis is a blockchain analysis company that examines on-chain data to understand crypto markets. 

CopperCasts are split into two parts. The first is a short (2min) video in which our guest shares with us something they find unusual or inspiring about the digital asset space. The second half is a traditional audio-only podcast, which you can stream at the bottom of this page, or search for it in all the usual places.

In the above Show & tell segment, Philip looks at institutional inflows into the space, describing that since November, large whales have bought 1.7m Bitcoin in total at an average cost of $35k per Bitcoin.

He concludes that the willingness to buy the digital asset at this price level likely puts a new floor on the Bitcoin price of at least $35k.

In the longer audio-only conversation with CopperCasts host Tyler Kenyon, you’ll get a glimpse of how difficult it is to link a wallet address to real identities, how privacy coins such as Monero work, Chainalysis’ plans in DeFi and the true scale of illicit activity occurring on the network.
