Techemy Capital launches DeFi ETP on Balancer
Techemy Capital has launched Decentralized Exchange-Traded Portfolios (ETPs) on Balancer, starting with a DeFi ETP. We’re joined by Techemy Capital CEO Fran Strajnar, and Balancer CEO Fernando Martinelli who discuss why these ETPs are a potential game-changer, how to invest, and what this means for DeFi. Guests: Fran Strajnar and Fernando Martinelli Why you should listen: “Digital asset investors and traders are seeking more advanced ways to gain exposure to popular DeFi assets,” says Fran Strajnar, CEO at Techemy Capital. “BNC’s DeFi Index and ETP provides this, all with industry-leading security, transparency, and speed. Rather than having to pick one DeFi winner and hope for the best, investors can now get exposure to the success of the entire sector.” Fernando says it is validating to see funds such as Techemy Capital be early adopters of Balancer. "We're about to launch Balancer V2 which will bring massive gains in cost efficiency for gas fees. It's an exciting time for crypto and for DeFi and brilliant to see Techemy Capital provide a use case for Balancer that we foresaw from day one.” Key takeaway: The DeFi ETP is a physical representation of Brave New Coin’s Blue-Chip DeFi Index ( a portfolio of 8 key assets). The DeFi ETP gives traders non-synthetic exposure to assets in the BNC DeFi Blue-Chip Index: Yearn Finance ($YFI), Compound Finance ($COMP), Aave Protocol ($AAVE), MakerDAO ($MKR), Synthetix ($SNX), Uniswap ($UNI), SushiSwap ($SUSHI) and Uma Project ($UMA). Issued on Balancer Protocol, the new DeFi ETP mimics the constitution and weights of the BNC Blue-Chip DeFi Index. It is rebalanced in alignment with the index, providing traders an opportunity to get non-synthetic exposure to the assets that make up the index, and/or to speculate or arbitrage between the price parity of the index-powered perpetual swaps [offered by third parties such as BTSE] and the spot market for the ETP. The DeFi ETP is non-custodial, transparent, on-chain, wholly collateralized, highly liquid, and instantly redeemable.

BORDERLESS: How Bitcoin Is Becoming a Lifeline for Cubans
This week on Borderless, tech reporter Leigh Cuen speaks with data analyst and entrepreneur Boaz Sobrado about how bitcoin became relevant to him when he had to use it at his e-commerce company.  With the changes in the U.S. presidential administration in 2016 and the strict regulations that followed it became harder to bank in Cuba. Processing payments and conducting proper international transactions were causing his company to bleed money. So Boaz turned to bitcoin to move money in and out of the country safely and provide commerce to Cuban communities.  However, bitcoin adoption in Cuba turned out to be harder than he thought. Due to COVID-19, Cuba is undergoing the worst economic crisis since the 1990s. At that time Cuba’s economic structure was so atrocious that portions of its population suffered from hunger. Boaz says, “We aren’t there yet” that it isn’t as bad as the crisis of the 1990s. However, with Western Union remittance rates going down there is less and less money in the country. This has caused inflation to rise and product delivery to the country of Cuba to become more difficult.  Listen as Sobrado discusses the informal peer-to-peer development of the cryptocurrency markets in Cuba and how the internet penetration in Cuba is accelerating bitcoin adoption.   Did you enjoy the show?

Bryce Paul & Pizza Mind: Bitcoin Blockchain Cryptocurrency Ethereum Advocates
Ep. 362 - Privacy vs. Transparency in Cryptocurrency Smart Contracts w/ Oasis Protocol
In this episode of CRYPTO 101, we talk with Luca Cosentino from Oasis Protocol about smart contracts. Smart contracts power the DeFi ecosystem on the backend. Even if Uniswap or other DEX front-ends were to be seized or shut down, the trading would still continue and new interfaces would pop up somewhere else the very next day (or sooner). Oasis offers private smart contracts, a potentially revolutionary step forward in security. Crypto has two major conflicting ideologies, transparency vs privacy. Each use case seems to have a good argument for either, or sometimes both. Luca shares his thoughts on the advantages of private smart contracts, as well as the full-featured open finance ecosystem being built at Oasis. The hot topic of the day is, can Ethereum scale, and when? We get some insight from someone knowledgeable in the field. We also learned about a novel concept called Tokenized Data, and what may allow users to sell their data that they currently (and often unknowingly) give away for free today.

Is Musk Going To Pi** off the SEC Again? #135
Well, we recorded this podcast before this news came out – but we saw this one coming…Tesla’s CEO Elon Musk is reportedly under SEC scrutiny over some alleged cryptocurrency manipulation and it is not over Bitcoin – it is over Dogecoin. Musk and the SEC have more of a hate-hate relationship than a love-hate relationship, and of course, the SEC has gone after him before. During his attempt to take Tesla private in 2018 he tweeted out “funding secured” which led the SEC to file a lawsuit against him as they felt he was exaggerating, and they fined him, and Tesla, $20M USD each (Musk bought $20M in shares from Tesla to cover their part of the fine and has since made that money backhand over fist). Also, as part of that settlement, Musk had to step down from being the Chairman of the Board. Recently, with Musk a key evangelist for bitcoin, Tesla bought $1.5B in bitcoin – and his love for crypto does not stop there. Musk has been shilling for Dogecoin, the famous ‘joke’ coin with a dog as its mascot. But will the ‘joke’ be on Musk? As an influencer in today’s society, this means that people will follow where he leads. So, when he tweets his love for bitcoin, it apparently translates to “buy bitcoin” for all the sheep out there. So, what happens when Musk writes “bitcoin is almost as bs as regular money”? Well, it makes the SEC sad, as it starts to apparently look like market manipulation. But is the SEC right to be mad? Join Aviva Ounap, host of Crypto and Blockchain Talk, and Jonathan Dunsmoor from Dunsmoor Law as they have a quick chat about Musk, Bitcoin, and Doge and ask – what will happen?
