As recounted by the celebrity investor, he screens crypto projects and traditional software companies in almost the same way. He said he observes coins and their vision. He then used Polygon to explain his approach to investing in crypto projects.

Kevin O’Leary noted:

As for Solana (SOL) and its developers, Kevin O’Leary said it’s a project seeking a unique solution:

They’re trying to solve problems a different way to speed everything up. Check the box. Who’s working on that? [FTX exchange head] Sam Bankman-Fried and his team. Why wouldn’t you bet that horse?

He also has this to say about Hedera (HBAR) and the team behind its advancement:

Great team, good engineers. What’s the economic premise that would keep that growing? Boeing wants a quasi-centralized/decentralized platform, they want the best of both worlds. HBAR can deliver that, check the box there.
