Today's guest is Blake West, Co-founder and CTO of Goldfinch

Goldfinch is on a huge mission to expand access to capital by creating a single global debt market. Goldfinch does this through a decentralized credit protocol on Ethereum that allows anyone to be a lender, not just banks. 

In January of this year Goldfinch raised a $25M round led by a16z, with the aim to match the 154x growth the protocol saw in its first year of operation. Over the last year, the protocol crossed over $100M in active loans, reaching over 1M people and businesses across 20+ countries

We get into the detail of Goldfinch’s business model, how the company works and Blake’s candid advice for future crypto founders.
