Play episode · 54 min

Blockstack set out to decentralize the internet in 2013, and now the Harvard Endowment-backed startup is expecting to issue the first SEC-registered token offering. Co-founder Muneeb Ali and I touch on:

  • How much decentralization is enough?
  • Balancing UI/UX and decentralization
  • Is Ethereum's "wold computer" vision possible?
  • Do dapps have to be smart contracts?

LMAX's CEO breaks down the real impact of the U.K. crypto derivatives ban
The ban will take effect in January of next year, affecting crypto brokers, investment platforms, financial advisers and, of course, derivatives exchanges. But, David Mercer, CEO of LMAX Group, said what the ban really does is effectively halve the leverage. The FCA had already limited leverage to retail customers to two to one, now it's one to one.   "You've banned derivatives, but actually you've just halved leverage. It's one to one rather than two to one. That's all that's really happened," said Mercer. "What they're saying to everyone, you can own crypto assets you just can't own it on leverage. " Still, Mercer said there is a duty in capital markets to protect retail investors and firms have a duty of care. LMAX Group is a regulated broker in the U.K. trading mostly spot, but clients still pass suitability tests indicating their understanding of the product. Working with regulators, even when you disagree with them — and Mercer said he does disagree with the ban — is key. Mercer laid out why he thinks the FCA took such an aggressive approach on this issue as well as its implications on this episode of The Scoop. He also touched on: Why normal corporate firms are beginning to set aside part of their balance sheets to bitcoin, and why Mercer says it's inevitable that bigger traditional funds begin allocating portions of their portfolio to bitcoin How the market responded to regulator cases against Bitmex  The implications of the FCA ban and how the regulator's influence might change by ignoring crypto stakeholders Why he thinks a significant bank will move into the marketplace in 2021 and what that will do for crypto.

Data is the new oil - Ocean Protocol is building the data economy
Bruce Pon is the founder of Ocean Protocol. Ocean helps developers build marketplaces so that organizations can privately and securely publish, exchange, and consume data. Ocean protocol is building the new data economy. Guest: Bruce Pon Why you should listen: Ocean protocol enables the monetization and tokenization of data. This gives power back to data owners, enabling them to gain value from their data and allow it to be used in ways that benefit the world. Pon says the data economy already exists but there are powerful gatekeepers such as the FAANG companies in the West, Baidu, Alibaba and Tencent in China, and data publishers such as Bloomberg and Reuters. “The data economy is any economic value that can be created from the use of data,” says Pon. “It's all around us and it is potentially worth trillions. Data can be reused, optimized and improved over time. Data can be used in countless different ways for different purposes. So as the world goes digital, the potential to turn this data into something truly valuable is immense.” Key takeaway: There is a growing understanding that from a macro world level to an industry sector level, to the government and institutional level, to the city, to company, and the individual - all are data producing machines. We now have the tools to collect and analyze this data and there are huge learnings and breakthroughs that can be teased out of the data. This is what makes data incredibly valuable. Pon says that Ocean Protocol Version 3 is the culmination of all of the learnings from version 1 and 2. “The space has advanced a lot since we began building in 2017,” he explained. “The architecture that we designed early on can now be simplified and optimized to integrate with the current state of the art. So with a light weight model we can integrate with the web 3.0 infrastructure and make full use of AMMs like Balancer and Uniswap to create data tokens. We always talked about turning data streams into value streams and it is now possible. We have the ability to create ERC20 tokens that represent data streams. The tokens can be used to access the data, and they can also be traded or speculated on. We can even create mutual data funds that can track various types of health data or automotive data for example. That's what Ocean enables.” Supporting links: Ocean Protocol Ocean Protocol on Twitter Bruce on Twitter Andy on Twitter Brave New Coin on Twitter Brave New Coin If you enjoyed the show please subscribe to the Crypto Conversation and give us a 5-star rating and a positive review in whatever podcast app you are using.

Robbie Ferguson: Building the Next Generation of NFT Infrastructure — Metaverse Musings Episode 08
Host Piers Kicks sits down for Episode 08 of Metaverse Musings with Robbie Ferguson, who is a Co-Founder of Immutable—the company behind Gods Unchained and the upcoming Immutable X exchange. Robbie has some fascinating ideas about what the future of media and ownership will look like. We cover plenty of ground such as the new design space being unlocked in video games, financial markets for virtual goods, the current lack of robust commercial incentives for metaverse interoperability, and why the value of virtual assets will eventually dwarf physical ones. Robbie even shares the lessons learned from the painful memory of dying in the Runescape wilderness with all of his brother’s gear… all too familiar.

Matt Hougan, chief investment officer of Bitwise Asset Management, discusses a milestone Bitwise reached this week -- hitting $100 million in assets under management. He also covered * what has been driving interest in Bitwise products * the two types of customers who have been especially interested in purchasing crypto assets this year and why * what this says about the maturation of the industry compared to during the 2017 bubble * how conversations with Bitwise customers have changed since then * what impact this week's bullish JPMorgan research note about Bitcoin could have on investors and why it was so significant * what the significance will be of the integration of bitcoin, ether and other cryptocurrencies by PayPal next year * how Microstrategy and Square putting Bitcoin on their balance sheets will pave the way for other corporations to do so * how the new Fed policy of targeting an average 2% inflation rate could affect Bitcoin * how recent regulatory actions, such as with BitMEX, affect the likelihood of a Bitcoin ETF being approved in the next few years * how a company like Bitwise, which interfaces with traditional investors, creates viable investment vehicles around DeFi for its clientele * what a Trump win vs. a Biden win could mean for the crypto industry Thank you to our sponsor!
