Play episode · 33 min

In the latest episode, David talks with serial entrepreneur Sid John Leopold about the environmental impact of blockchain technology and what it means for the future of money.

“Currencies are just a tool that we use to trade,” explains Sid. “We're going to use 'money 2.0' if it works better. The environment is the factor that affects us all. We don't want those tools to…drastically make our lives worse off in the future."

All Things DeFi with Saeed Al Darmaki
DeFi truly is all the rage right now. And it makes sense, because who doesn’t want to separate from the traditional fiat banking system and become your own bank?

He’s the managing director of the Alphabit Digital Currency Fund and Chairman of eGovern blockchain consultancy company. It’s guaranteed he knows more about this stuff than we do.  But then again, who doesn’t? Hey, you don’t get the Defi Dufi label just because you like alliteration.  You have to earn it.

What You Need to Know About the DOJ's Cryptocurrency Enforcement Framework - Ep.147
Jessie Liu, partner at Skadden and the former US attorney for the District of Columbia, headed up the team that has prosecuted what some believe is the greatest number of cryptocurrency crimes worldwide — Welcome to Video, Dark Scandals, Helix, North Korea, Hamas/Al Qaeda and ISIS. In this episode, she discusses: * how she came to create a Threat Finance Unit that focuses on the intersection of cybercrime that threatened national security * what the DOJ's new cryptocurrency enforcement framework means and what the significance is of the framework * what parts of the framework crypto startups should pay attention to * whether the DOJ will continue to act in concert with other agencies, as it did recently with its indictment of four executives at cryptocurrency derivatives exchange BitMEX in conjunction with an enforcement action by the CFTC against the same exchange * how DOJ can claim jurisdiction over exchanges located outside the US, on a practical level, go after entities located outside * how the FATF global standards will affect enforcement in the US * the DOJ's stance toward "anonymity-enhanced" cryptocurrencies, or privacy-preserving coins * the DOJ's disagreement that EU's privacy law, GDPR, can be used by some crypto exchanges to keep the DOJ from obtaining data from those exchanges * how willing foreign countries are to coordinate with US law enforcement and whether cryptocurrency criminals could engage in jurisdictional arbitrage Thank you to our sponsor!

Smart Pools - Balancer is Uber for liquidity pools
Fernando Martinelli is the founder and CEO of Balancer, an automated asset management platform for programmable liquidity. Balancer allows anyone to create public or private liquidity pools for up to 8 assets with customizable weighting. Guest: Fernando Martinelli Why you should listen: Balancer began as a research project in 2018. By exploring multidimensional invariant surfaces, Fernando and his team came up with a powerful mathematical framework that enables continuous portfolio rebalancing while also generating fees. Fernando says “the formula itself is quite simple and easy to express mathematically. The way it works and the way it proves self-balancing in liquidity pools is the trickier part. It’s a function of mathematical expression whose value cannot change when trades are done. The same way Uniswap relies on X x Y = K, we have something similar but slightly more complex. And if you think of each of the balances as a dimension and then if you have a pool with three balances, then you have a 3-dimensional surface, which is actually in the fourth dimension because the surface itself is the energy value of this function that has three inputs and one output.” Balancer is similar to Uniswap. However Fernando says that one of the main differences is that “our main focus is on the asset management side of things where Uniswap’s focus is more on the decentralized exchange. So our focus is to make sure we meet the needs of liquidity providers so they will come to Balancer to put their crypto to work, and rebalance their portfolios. We want to be a flexible primitive where people can be as creative as they want.” Asked about one of the key Defi themes in 2020, Fernando said, “Liquidity mining is a mechanism to get a platform to a decentralized stage. Balancer started with investors, advisors, founders, and this was at a time when there wasn’t really an idea of a fair launch. It’s just the way it worked out. There are pros and cons but ultimately you need capital to bootstrap but we don’t want to be a VC coin we want to be decentralized and that’s our goal.” Key takeaway: Balancer is a financial primitive that serves as a fundamental building block in decentralized finance. However, it is also an asset management platform, and it is an automated market maker (AMM) providing programmable liquidity. This in turn makes other features such as decentralized asset exchange, automated portfolio management, DAO-governed treasuries, and fair token distributions possible. Fernando says this is an important point, and that as a permissionless platform, Balancer allows any developer to leverage its infrastructure to build financial products and services. “Balancer wouldn’t work if there wasn’t the other side of the market. So you have the liquidity providers who want to have their index funds rebalanced, and make some money with fees. And that’s up to them to decide. And the other side of the equation is the DEX. So all the pools on Balancer allow anyone to trade in any direction on any pair that that pool contains. The fact that we have a two sided market means we need both actors for the system to work.” Balancer Smart Pools are private pools controlled by a smart contract. These pools can be made of two to eight token constants, and customized with configurable weights that represent the desired ratio of each token in a pool. The smart contract acts as a controller for the liquidity in that pool. Fernando describes smart pools as “Uber for liquidity pools, whereas what we’ve had to date has been taxis. It’s about matching demand to supply.” For example, the RealT smart pool – essentially a real estate index fund building on all their tokenized real-estate – where the smart pool ERC20 tokens represent ownership of the whole index. Finally Fernando says “DeFi is a revolution that is just getting started. It will have cycles and some serious ups and downs but it is going to keep growing I believe.” Supporting links: Balancer Balancer on Twitter Fernando on Twitter Andy on Twitter Brave New Coin on Twitter Brave New Coin The Three-Body Problem 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.

Ep. 346 - Create Your Own Economy, w/ Fuse Network founder Mark Smargon
In this episode of CRYPTO 101, we talked to Mark Smargon, the founder of Fuse Network and learned about how micro-economies can still exist and thrive inside a greater global community. It is a completely fresh take on the idea of decentralized finance, from an angle we’re not used to looking at it. As Big Brother creeps into every aspect of our lives, the digital dollar threatens the existence of banking itself, Fuse is presenting a way to opt out of that dystopian communist future before it is too late.

Beating the Banks with Alex Mashinsky, CEO of Celsius Network
Alex Mashinsky came to the U.S. as an immigrant in the 1980’s after living in both communist and socialist countries. His diverse background made him passionate about helping people and developing a "better bank" that rewards its customers rather than stealing from them. Fascinated with blockchain and fintech, Alex founded Celsius Network, a platform with unbeatable yields that would finally stand up to the banks, giving people the hard-earned money they deserve. Scott Melker and Alex Mashinsky further discuss moving to the U.S. in the ’80s, phone company monopolies, the urge to disrupt, creating Celsius Network, giving 80% of the profits to the community, bank bailouts, daytime robbery, beating the banks, crypto community fees, hedge funds in crypto, the name “Sushi” as a leading indicator, the corrosion of standards and voting with your wallet. --- VOYAGER This episode is brought to you by Voyager, your new favorite crypto broker.
