Olaf Carlson-Wee rode 2017’s “initial coin offering” craze to become one of crypto’s top venture investors
Carlson-Wee’s success lies not only in his ability to find the most promising DeFi startups but in Polychain’s willingness to make outsize investments in them. Decentralization and democratization may be the DeFi ideal, but when it comes to decisions that might affect Polychain’s returns, Carlson-Wee is very much in charge. He doesn’t hesitate to use his firm’s formidable voting power to ensure that the interests of his partners come first.
OLAF CARLSON-WEE’S crypto journey started in 2011, the summer after his junior year at Vassar College in upstate New York. An avid fan of role-playing video games, he had read about how the underground drug marketplace Silk Road was enabled by a virtual currency called bitcoin. His excitement over the new tech drove him to sink almost his entire life savings—about $700—into bitcoin at prices ranging from $2 to $16. He went on to write his senior thesis in sociology on the emerging cryptocurrency.
I don’t think crypto fixes wealth inequality or wealth concentration, but it does shake the snow globe.Olaf Carlson-Wee admits.

Why decentralized finance isn’t just the Wild West of Wall Street?
DeFi goes further than a stock exchange and seeks to replace everything in the financial world: prediction platforms, lending, options, derivatives, the works. It is a shadow Wall Street that is being built by crypto enthusiasts, one that’s completely decentralized, user owned and open sourced, with crypto-renderings of most TradFi (traditional finance) products, and virtually no regulation and bureaucracy. You could trade in crypto versions of Microsoft, Google and Tesla stock with these chips mirroring real-life equity. As of now, DeFi is incipient but not small; its ‘total value locked’ is pegged at $77 billion, which would make it the 38th largest bank by deposits in the US.
