This is a followup to Chris Dixon's Crypto Claims Are Logically Flimsy.

It's becoming popular for thought leaders in the investing and crypto world to make bold claims that aren't backed up by any specific examples. The latest person to prominently do this is Naval Ravikant on Tim Ferriss's podcast.

Naval Ravikant is the founder of AngelList and writes very interesting books and blogs. He and Chris Dixon (a partner at Andreessen Horowitz) are now deploying many $millions of capital into crypto projects, and encouraging others to do so.

I think it's worthwhile to document how far people can go without having their abstract claims tested with a request for specificity. But it feels a bit surreal observing that my industry's top investors and thought leaders seem to be making decisions on mental models full of holes that they aren't flagging as holes.
