Richard Carthon: Hello, everyone. Welcome to another episode of Crypto Current, your host here, Richard Carthon, and today I have a special guest that has been working in the Crypto field, actually doing some tutoring that I recently have come across. We have Lisa with Crypto Tutors. How are you doing today?
00:00:27:22 – 00:00:42:23
Lisa Francoeur: I’m excellent. Thank you so much for having me. I see the great work that you’re doing in the space and for the community. And I tip my hat off to you. It’s an honor to be here, share my thoughts, share the POV on Crypto Tutors and thank you for giving us the platform to do so.
00:00:43:14 – 00:00:49:25
Richard Carthon: Of course. Well, before we dive into Crypto Tutors, let’s first dive into you. Can you please give us some background on yourself?
00:00:51:03 – 00:01:28:22
Lisa Francoeur: Yes. I think that Crypto is a microcosm of tech, which is a microcosm I have over 10+ years of experience as a business development and software sales executive. I worked for start ups to Fortune 100, including LinkedIn, which is where I actually met one of the other co-founders of Crypto Tutors, Nina. We had a pretty extensive tenure at LinkedIn, a lot of great things came out of that. But suffice to say, I think that Crypto is one of the greatest redistributions of wealth. I think it has a tremendous impact on marginalized communities globally, which has been one of the driving forces behind why I wanted to get involved in the industry.
00:01:30:26 – 00:02:08:11
Lisa Francoeur: And I’m all about, you know, democratizing access to power. I think that Crypto fits that bill. I know we’ll get into all of that, but, you know, that’s a little bit about my professional background. It’s also important to note that I have another company called Fancified. And, you know, Fancified is an empowerment consultancy and really in high tech, in addition to, you know, selling enterprise software to Fortune 500s. What I also did was I scale the economy globally and I, you know, develop employee empowerment programs that were award winning programs as a part of my side hustle.
00:02:08:13 – 00:02:43:00
Lisa Francoeur: I was also involved in diversity, recruitment and cultivating inclusive environments within high tech firms. And actually, I speak. I do a lot of, you know, corporate training and motivational speaking at companies like Microsoft, DoorDash, Salesforce, etc.. So, again, I think that tech, which I’ve had, you know, a number of years of experience within is the macrocosm. Crypto is the microcosm. And, you know, it’s just a great space to be in because I not only think it’s the future, I think it’s the present.
00:02:43:22 – 00:03:11:17
Richard Carthon: I agree. And one of the things that you dropped immediately was that it’s going to help generate a lot of generational wealth for a lot of people who usually don’t have access. And it’s one of the things that really drew me in initially as well. And it sounds like you have a lot of, you know, corporate background, also a lot of entrepreneurial skills as well. But what was that first introduction to Crypto? Like, when did you first hear about it? And what made you go like, Yes, this is something that I need to be diving more into and teaching people about.
00:03:13:08 – 00:03:59:00
Lisa Francoeur: This is super critical. This is super critical because I think that, you know, the community, the people that are around you, you know, they weigh heavily on the conversations that are being had, the topics of discussion, even the upward mobility is very interesting because, you know, they say your network is your net worth. And so, you know, with that context, Nina Blankenship, who is one of the co-founders of Crypto Tutors, we met at LinkedIn, we’ve been, you know, best friends for many years. She herself connected dots that Moeti, our third business partner and co-founder at Crypto Tutors. It made sense for him and to meet. And, you know, it was interesting because I have a whole vision of scaling economy globally and Moeti is very much about financial empowerment.
00:03:59:09 – 00:04:51:07
Lisa Francoeur: This is really important to share with your audience and that is how, you know, the impetus behind Crypto Tutors. Nina had the foresight to recognize that Moeti, who was her statistics professor, coincidentally, not professor, excuse me, her tutor in statistics back at university years ago was someone that I should meet because he, as a Zimbabwe American, has been studying the monetary system since his exposure as a Zimbabwean to hyperinflation. And just, you know, that being the catalyst and wanting to understand the monetary system. And so, fast forward to now, he’s an algorithmic trader for Fortune 200. He has a PhD in statistics, but he’s very much someone who’s about how do you liberate your wealth, how do you empower people, particularly marginalized communities, particularly the black community, through Crypto.
00:04:51:09 – 00:05:13:04
Lisa Francoeur: And so, Nina had the foresight to say Lisa is about empowerment, period and in general and Moeti’s about empowerment financially. So, let me introduce them. And that’s exactly what she did. The three of us got on this, like, you know, meeting of the minds, have a conversation and we started to talk about Crypto and it being, again, the greatest redistribution of wealth in United States history. So, that really piqued my interest.
00:05:13:06 – 00:05:52:24
Lisa Francoeur: And then, you know, Moeti was kind of giving the game, putting us on to how to, you know, the move that he was making and exposing us to, you know, some strategies that he was, you know, he had rolled out. And we were saying to ourselves, Okay, wait, there’s an opportunity to take, you know, a few dollars, so to speak, and invest it. And it had that kind of force multiplying effect, so, we thought to ourselves, Wait, what if we could codify these learnings. What if we ourselves could develop a curriculum that would lend itself to scale this type of Crypto lit servicing? And I pause on the lit because, you know, we’re putting the lit in literacy. It’s a double entendre. I’ll let y’all figure it out.
00:05:54:07 – 00:05:54:22
Richard Carthon: Nice.
00:05:54:24 – 00:06:20:25
Lisa Francoeur: Anyways. But, you know, so, you know, I wasn’t in the game for mad long. It wasn’t like I’ve been, you know, a Crypto enthusiast for like, you know, 10 years or what have you. It was like I got really introduced about a year and a half ago and it wasn’t just an introduction. We literally decided, Okay, we’re going to create a company, we’re going to create an entire company that’s all about education and simplifying Crypto because it was super complex.
00:06:20:27 – 00:06:48:11
Lisa Francoeur: And, you know, we were really scared when we were making our first trade. You know, to this day, I get like, intimidated when I’m about to transact or execute a trade and you know, Nina’s like my trading partner. But that was a very long winded way of saying, you know, how, honestly, my community got me, put, you know, introduced to Crypto. And when I started to connect the dots, it was like, Oh, my God, this is major. And so, I fell down the rabbit hole.
00:06:48:13 – 00:07:29:17
Richard Carthon: And it’s a beautiful thing once you get down the rabbit hole, you see all the opportunities that, One, that you can start to capitalize for yourself, but that you can also bring in other communities like this opportunity is for everyone. It’s just who wants to receive the information and then go and act on it. And even though you just joined a year and a half ago, you’ve already taken the first steps to not only learn it yourself, but empower others to be doing that themselves. So, one of the things I kind of want to break down is let’s say that someone’s listening to this right now, they’re Crypto newbie or a novice or they’ve been in the game for a long time, like Crypto Tutors, they go on your website, they check out some of the different curriculum you have, like, who is this for and what can they expect to walk away from if they were to move forward?
00:07:31:15 – 00:08:09:09
Lisa Francoeur: I love that question. Thank you so much for asking. I would say that, you know, let’s start with our mission statement, which is that, you know, we are devoted to simplifying Cryptocurrency with e-learning one-on one-tutoring and edutainment. And entertainment is a hybrid of entertainment and education. And this is a part of our competitive advantage. You know, I’m a Crypto rapper 100 thou and I say that because, you know, the Crypto rapping is an example of edutainment. It’s an example of how our team internally is writing and producing original music that’s really putting people onto game because we recognize as educators, we’re not advisors, but as educators, we recognize that, you know, there are a variety of ways that people can consume information.
00:08:09:16 – 00:09:03:14
Lisa Francoeur: But ultimately, you know, how do you get people from a comprehension standpoint, increase their comprehension levels to retain the information because that’s going to be the foundation upon which they act. And so, you know, our whole thing is, how do you take the knowledge that you’re receiving through the various channels that we are administering and apply it, you know, in actionable ways. So, you know, transforming knowledge into wealth. And so, you know, with that mission statement, simplifying Cryptocurrency, through e-learning, one-on-one tutoring and edutainment, we are wanting to empower folks to transform that knowledge into wealth. And, you know, another point of reference is that our e-learning course, Make Money While You Sleep, where we walk people through the process of, Okay, what is Cryptocurrency, what is Blockchain, what is Cryptography, how do you procure, you know, how do you procure Bitcoin, what’s the simple, you know, most simplistic way of doing so.
00:09:03:19 – 00:10:04:01
Lisa Francoeur: And we recognize as well that, you know, the world at large is predominantly mobile first. And this is really key, especially for emerging markets, because as a mobile first, you know, market, we have to take into consideration the processes people are using to like, you know, to do whatever transactions that they’re trying to do. And so, in our course, you know, we talk about ways to procure Bitcoin, but fundamentally and understanding, you know, why being in Crypto is important. You know, you talk about your 100 X, 1,000 X returns, etc.. It’s also important to understand just kind of the way to navigate the landscape. And so, our e-learning course, Make Money While You Sleep with stablecoin USDN is an introduction to Crypto that enables people to apply what they learned and to get them in the industry in a relatively safe air, quote, safe way because we’re talking about stablecoin. The ultimate investment is stable USDN, which generates 10 to 15 percent interest.
00:10:04:03 – 00:10:36:16
Lisa Francoeur: And, you know, comparatively speaking, you look at a savings account, you’re talking about less than one percent interest. If you could stake your money, we talk about the process of staking, which is, you know, where you’re being, you know, rewarded for providing liquidity to the exchange for securitizing the exchange. You’re being compensated for that. And it’s like that’s the type of setup for success where everybody can win. And, you know, again, you’re shielded from the volatility because not everybody has the appetite to endure the 30 percent drops of like, Bitcoin, Ethereum, etc..
00:10:36:24 – 00:11:05:00
Lisa Francoeur: So, a stablecoin is important to note as well, is it’s collateralized by another asset. It could be a fiat in our case it’s another Crypto. And that e-learning course is an entry to the Crypto Tutors ecosystem. It’s free. We have corporate partnerships that we are about to be launching in H2 of 2021 that has enabled us to underwrite the cost for the production of the course, which is why we’re giving back to our community.
00:11:05:09 – 00:11:49:08
Lisa Francoeur: So, you’ve got the e-learning course. We produce a YouTube show called Crypto Couch. This is super dope because the thing about the Crypto Couch is that we host subject matter experts, primarily black, brown and, you know, women. And within this, you know, conversation, which is semi, which is akin to I guess you can say like the Breakfast Club, kind of like a talk show format where, you know, I mostly interview the subject matter experts and we talk about Crypto, we talk about Blockchain. These are the leaders in the industry. They talk like leaders, so part of my job is to lamonize the conversation so that, you know, everybody, whether you’re, you know, 17 or 77, you could learn, you could understand what’s being said.
00:11:49:12 – 00:12:03:24
Lisa Francoeur: And we keep it, you know, lit. As I said, we like to put the lit in Crypto literacy. So, the conversations are super dynamic. I got a lot of energy. If you can hear me coming through your airway, you could tell that she’s like, got a lot of energy.
00:12:03:26 – 00:12:04:11
Richard Carthon: Got that energy. And it comes out, honestly.
00:12:04:13 – 00:12:04:28
Lisa Francoeur: It’s a wave.
00:12:05:00 – 00:12:43:26
Richard Carthon: You’re going to have that passion, right? You know, you gotta have that, like, that real passion to come out and want people to invite and be a part of this movement, because it’s like once you see it, your mind is transformed and you can’t go back. And so, you’re slowly trying to open people’s eyes to just the pure amount of opportunity that’s in it. So, you brought up something interesting that I want to unpack for a second with the stablecoins. So, I mean, there’s plenty of examples of stablecoins that are out there, but think about it this way, if, first you need an introjection to get capital, a.k.a. Cryptocurrency is a way to have an asset that can appreciate in value, so that you then can liquidate and have some stable currency, right?
00:12:44:02 – 00:13:13:11
Richard Carthon: But then, once you have a stable currency, instead of having it sit in a savings account, making you .01 percent, now you can get a stablecoin that you then can put into a place that’s going to stake or make some appreciation, which sounds like you have one that will do 12 percent. So, you know, you go from let’s say that you have $10,000 in your account, now you get 12 percent on that. You know, now you’re making 1,200 bucks of passive income. Everyone wants to talk about passive income and what it means to build and generate wealth. You have to build that passive income, but you first have to be able to create that income.
00:13:13:13 – 00:13:35:25
Richard Carthon: So, Crypto’s that injection point to get the money flow going, but then with having, like, stablecoins and other ways that you can now put your money in a safer place and have it make money for you, now we’re talking about multiplying that money. And it’s just, that’s how you generate that wealth. But you have to have someone who sees the full vision and then can break it down for you and give you those first steps to actualize that opportunity.
00:13:38:03 – 00:14:43:21
Lisa Francoeur: That’s why we call the course Make Money While You Sleep, because here’s the thing, I think that we tend to be calibrated to a mindset that gives us the impression that we exchange money, we exchange time for money. And don’t get me wrong, I think that that is definitely a part of, you know, an approach to generating wealth. But the truth is that the 24 hours in a day, the seven days a week, the 365 days a year and so on, so, it’s like, there’s but so much you can do with that. There’s a fixed amount of time you can spend working because you obviously need to rest, eat, etc.. So, I think from, you know, a diversification standpoint, it’s important to be thinking about ways that you can, you know, generate income passively. And this is why when we think about and I said it earlier and I’m going to say it again, the greatest redistribution of wealth. This is what we’re talking about. And of course, it’s also important to note that you can start with as little as $20. This is when we talk about the barrier to entry being lowered and why Crypto is presenting such a tremendous opportunity to level the economic playing field. It’s because of reasons like that.
00:14:44:00 – 00:15:35:10
Lisa Francoeur: The fact that you can get in with dollars makes, you know, virtually everyone, you know, it really opens up the market with respect to who can participate in these wealth building practices. And so, you know, when we, you know, decided to release the course, which was $1,000, I’ll have you know. So, you know, the production value of the course, I mean, but, you know, we’re talking about well into the five digits to produce the insider course. So, we put a lot into it, not just in terms of the content. You know, Moeti, he is my other business partner who I was mentioning has a PhD in statistics and is an algorithmic trader and has been in Crypto since its inception. He’s the head of our education department. And so, you know, the content, you know, he led the charge, so to speak, on that.
00:15:35:12 – 00:16:16:11
Lisa Francoeur: I’m the one facilitating. I don’t know if you guys will be able to see me, but let’s just put it like this, I’m kind of interesting. So, I’m the facilitator of the course, then Nina and her team, they do the illustrations, they do the animations. You know, we recognize again, that people learn in a variety of ways. Whether you’re visual, whether you’re audio, all of that is factored into what we created and then again on the Crypto Couch, you know, being able to also follow people and projects. This is really crucial, too, because, you know, the thing I love about one of the many reasons I love Crypto is because there’s this collective. You know, you have these innovators, you have these disruptors. But we are extremely, for the most part, collaborative.
00:16:16:18 – 00:16:17:03
Richard Carthon: Yes.
00:16:17:05 – 00:16:22:21
Lisa Francoeur: You know, for the most part, there’s this group economics type of vibe where it’s like we all eat, you know, everybody’s.
00:16:22:24 – 00:16:23:11
Richard Carthon: Everybody’s.
00:16:23:13 – 00:16:24:02
Lisa Francoeur: Like, they’re not my competition.
00:16:24:04 – 00:16:24:20
Richard Carthon: Right.
00:16:24:22 – 00:17:03:06
Lisa Francoeur: Yeah. Like, everybody can eat and, so like, it’s been honestly an amazing experience at the Crypto Couch to be able to host, you know, Isaiah Jackson, black Bitcoin billionaire. Hill Harper is coming up on Monday, we’re interviewing him. You know, we have just so many interesting people that are like, leading us into the future and to be able to follow their journeys as well. So, it’s not like, about Crypto Tutors and the Crypto Couch as much as it is about making these people accessible, presenting them no matter where it’s like, I want to follow their journey. I have another point of reference to help me understand what’s going on in this space.
00:17:04:00 – 00:17:35:04
Richard Carthon: Absolutely, and you’re creating access to knowledge and thought leaders and, you know, just going back to the premise of Crypto Current was to bridge the gap between people who know nothing about Crypto and Blockchain with thought leaders in the space, and to just give access to these people who could break it down very simply and provide more opportunities to further people’s education. One of the main reasons I want to bring you on is to provide a different perspective in a lot of ways, provide another avenue to go and get more education, but also just to show that, you know, there are black people in the community that are out here trying to.
00:17:35:06 – 00:17:35:21
Lisa Francoeur: We’re out here.
00:17:35:23 – 00:17:36:08
Richard Carthon: Show.
00:17:36:10 – 00:17:36:25
Lisa Francoeur: Can we have a moment on that?
00:17:36:27 – 00:18:16:13
Richard Carthon: Like, how we can grow the Crypto community and like, have access to everyone. Like, this is for everyone, like it’s not, you know, racially divided. It’s none of that. It’s like, it’s for everyone and we just have to keep providing these opportunities and these avenues for people to get and access this knowledge. And, you know, it’s been a beautiful thing to, you know, be a part of Crypto Current and now have an international audience and like, being able to talk to everyone. But I think it’s really important to make sure that I’m constantly bringing on people on the show that hits every aspect of the world and that there’s always a voice and that there’s always another avenue for someone to go get some really great knowledge. So, I appreciate you sharing that.
00:18:16:23 – 00:18:49:18
Richard Carthon: One more thing I want to go back to just very quickly, you brought up the concept of $20. Like, as little as $20 to get started. So, I have a Crypto for beginners document that’s shared on Crypto Current and one of the things in that document, if you had gotten in Bitcoin when it first came out at .08 cents, it’d be worth almost $9,000,000 today. If you had gotten in Ethereum for $20 back when it first came out, it’d be worth $25,000 today. It’s all about are you playing the long game and are you willing to make that investment because that $20 literally could change your life.
00:18:51:22 – 00:19:25:01
Lisa Francoeur: I love the fact that you said that and you know, a lot of people right now, because Crypto is becoming quite, how do you say? You know, it’s super pervasive and to some extent, omnipresent. You know, more media coverage is like, really pushing it out there and a lot of people are like, curious and kind of wanting to understand, not knowing where to start, etc.. But here’s the thing, right? Like, and with that, let me also just add, FOMO, right? People are like, Oh, my God, woulda, coulda, shoulda. I should have been on Bitcoin. But the truth is that we’re really scratching the surface.
00:19:25:03 – 00:20:29:09
Lisa Francoeur: And I want to give some context with respect to the market capitalization associated with the coins like Bitcoin, which is the first Cryptocurrency. The introduction of Crypto was really launched with Bitcoin commercialization, commoditization. And, you know, Bitcoin is and I’m not a Bitcoin maximalist for the record, I’m just trying to, you know, give some historical references to explain how much the industry has matured and why it’s not going anywhere. But with Bitcoin in particular, you know, there’s a lot of analogies drawn to gold. And Bitcoin is even referred to as digital gold colloquially. And part of the reason for that is, you know, 21,000,000 units is the cap, right? This is really crucial because when you think about, you know, where a product, a service, a commodity, etc., currency derives its value. You know, the circulation is really integral to that valuation.
00:20:29:20 – 00:21:08:17
Lisa Francoeur: So, there’s only 21,000,000 units. That’s a mathematical impossibility for more Bitcoin to be produced. It’s fixed in number, versus gold, which they say has about a 10 trillion dollar market cap. And the thing about gold is that it’s not fixed, right? Like, we have in mind all the gold. The reason that I call that out is because this point of distinction will hopefully help people understand how much more we have to go because another thing about, you know, hedging against deflationary assets, excuse me, inflationary assets.
00:21:08:19 – 00:21:38:09
Lisa Francoeur: An inflationary asset would be like a fiat currency, for example. Like, a fiat would be a dollar. A fiat would be a euro. You know, we’re starting to see here in the United States, with the fiat currency of the US dollar they printed dollars for the stimulus packages to be honored. I think it’s something to the tune of almost two trillion dollars. They didn’t add more value to the marketplace, they just flooded the marketplace with more dollars. That in and of itself is a surefire way to cause inflation.
00:21:38:15 – 00:22:30:20
Lisa Francoeur: So, oftentimes when that type of activity is happening, a hedge against a way to offset the losses of, you know, this inflationary aspect is to invest in commodities like gold. But what you’re starting to see, especially with the institutional investment that’s coming into the marketplace, you’ve got MassMutual, a hundred million dollars in Bitcoin, you have Goldman Sachs recognizing Bitcoin as an investable asset. It’s still a commodity for clarification sake, but it’s an investable asset. You know, you have all of these things, sort of like factors that are weighing into the legitimacy, the credibility, but also this designation as Bitcoin, for instance, being a hedge against inflationary assets. So, they called Bitcoin a deflationary asset and that’s the same categorization as gold.
00:22:30:28 – 00:23:12:10
Lisa Francoeur: As I said, gold has essentially no market cap. So, it’s with that understanding, if Bitcoin is at a trillion dollar market cap, no marketing, no promotion, no nothing, it just did it organically over time, that means we have a lot more to grow with respect to how much more value it’ll increase in value. And so, with that Bitcoin, based on that formula of the ten trillion dollar market cap, One, Bitcoin will be $500,000, okay? So an understanding that at 35,000 and $40,000, $64,000 is extremely cheap.
00:23:12:21 – 00:23:13:06
Richard Carthon: Yep.
00:23:13:08 – 00:23:53:22
Lisa Francoeur: And the fact that you could do fractional buying, the fact that you could buy fractional shares when we talk about $20 where you can buy $20 in Bitcoin because you could literally buy up to the eighth decimal level of Bitcoin. I’m just using Bitcoin as an example just to give people an understanding of how the system works, which is why we are so much about the categorization of Bit being a redistribution of wealth because of the fact that you could start with $20, because of the fact that it’s only 30, you know, 30 on the low, 60 on the high, you know, and a $500,000 trajectory. Does that makes sense, are you following me?
00:23:53:24 – 00:24:21:00
Richard Carthon: It’s perfect sense, yeah. So, we have previous shows where we kind of like, go and break all that down, but like, you’re spot on. Like, to look at, if Bitcoin is, quote, unquote digital gold and let’s say that gold right now is a 10 trillion dollar market cap. Right now Bitcoin is a tenth of it. So, if math works and you keep going up, that’s saying that we’re going to see anywhere from a 500 to a $1,000,000 Bitcoin in potentially the next decade or two, that sounds like a pretty great investment opportunity.
00:24:21:02 – 00:24:59:01
Richard Carthon: I mean, I don’t know too many places where you get that much of a wealth distribution in that short amount of time that doesn’t require you to wait until you’re 65 to cash out. So, I mean, with that said, like, it sounds like you have, One, a ton of industry knowledge and another great reason why people should go and check out your content. And I definitely appreciate you coming on the show and sharing that with us. And I have like, two fun, more questions that I want to ask as we kind of wrap up here. With all of the knowledge that you have been able to take and if you could take that information and impart two or three pieces of wisdom to yourself when you first got started in this space, what would you tell yourself?
00:25:03:14 – 00:25:43:07
Lisa Francoeur: I would say Fud, right? Like, fear, uncertainty and doubt. Like, yeah, okay, that’s a part of the process, but let it not like, inhibit me from doing what needs to get done. You know, like, you’re going to make mistakes, nobody’s perfect. You know, there’s a lot of learning as you go. And I think that in Crypto you just have to lean in to taking the steps and learning in some instances from your mistakes, learning from your successes and just being okay with that entire process. And you know, don’t obviously invest anything that you can afford to lose.
00:25:43:16 – 00:25:44:01
Richard Carthon: Right.
00:25:44:03 – 00:25:50:01
Lisa Francoeur: But just know that like, you are playing in the future. And I pride myself on being on the right side of the future.
00:25:51:05 – 00:25:59:28
Richard Carthon: It’s awesome. I think that’s really great advice and thank you for sharing that. As we kind of wrap up here, you know, what is a final thought that you want to leave with all the listeners here today?
00:26:02:06 – 00:26:39:02
Lisa Francoeur: You know, I love the fact that you are producing this show. I love the fact that you’re having so many interesting people share their perspective and opening up, you know, people’s eyes and people’s minds. And I think that, you know, in Crypto, but in life in general, ABL, always be learning. You know, the best advice I probably should have said this a minute ago, but I wanted to like, make it relevant. But just in general, like, I think the best advice I’ve ever received and I’ve ever given is always be learning and don’t be afraid. I guess this is where the fear, uncertainty and doubt comes into place to apply which you learn in actionable ways.
00:26:39:29 – 00:26:55:28
Richard Carthon: I think that’s a spectacular final thought. Everyone listening, go back, listen to it again. Always be learning. Make sure you’re keeping new knowledge coming in and have a growth mindset, not a fixed mindset. But, Lisa, thank you for spending time with us.
