'They start with bitcoin:' Polychain's Olaf Carlson-Wee believes big investors will turn their attention to DeFi
"They start with bitcoin. It is the easiest to understand." In the most recent episode of The Scoop, Olaf Carlson-Wee said that recent headlines about institutional investors making waves in the bitcoin market aren't surprising to him. Since he launched Polychain Capital in 2016, he's become familiar with new market entrants who start by exploring bitcoin and then ultimately make their way to other ecosystems.  "It isn't surprising that these big institutional investors are first getting involved with bitcoin," he said. "This is effectively electronic gold. Everyone can reason about gold and the value of gold in an easy way." From Anthony Scaramucci to Paul Tudor Jones, the bull case for bitcoin as digital gold has been all but cemented as a Wall Street talking point. Yet his interest in bitcoin will find its way to DeFi, Carlson-Wee argues. "Once you have $100 million of bitcoin, you might start to think how I could get yield on this bitcoin for example," he said. "A lot of the time the answer there is through on-chain financial contracts." Carlson-Wee also believes that interest in DeFi products and services will buck the example of the 2017 ICO bubble and be more long-lasting. As he put it during the interview: "The summer of ICOs was a summer, the summer of DeFi was just the beginning of multi-years of compounding growth. The financial engineering in DeFi, I think, at this point is inarguably moving faster than the financial engineering anywhere else in the world. The capital coordination is faster than anywhere else in the world. A lot of these DeFi protocols are bigger than IPOs—regularly. Despite that go regularly unnoticed and are hard to interact with. The user experience barriers here are very high and despite that we see significant traction in terms of volumes." Still, Olaf-Carlson Wee said DeFi market participants need to work out the UI problems that make platforms difficult to use. In this episode of The Scoop, Olaf Carlson-Wee digs into: The differences between the ICO boom and the current market rally How DEXs went from being irrelevant to facilitating billions of dollars in volumes Where DeFi goes next What he thinks about the upcoming Coinbase IPO YFI's recent proposal to increase inflation  Polychain's lessons learned from the previous 2017 cycle

The Identity Dilemma - Selfkey is empowering individuals to take back ownership of their identity data
Edmund Lowell is the CEO of KYC-chain and the Selfkey network - a blockchain startup developing digital identity solutions that empower individuals to take back ownership of their identity data. Guest: Edmund Lowell Why you should listen: Everyone’s data is concentrated in the hands of a few large institutions. They store information about your browsing history, shopping habits, location data, bank statements, medical history, and more. With the growing threat of data breaches, and the loss of privacy - our information is increasingly at risk. One of the reasons for this is because rather than the individual controlling their data, it is instead tech companies and government databases that store data. This is at risk of being hacked and leaked. For example, last year hardware wallet manufacturer Ledger was data hacked. The data consisted of a list of one million email addresses, as well as a list of 272,000 individual customers, containing emails, phone numbers, and physical addresses. Those customers have since been targeted with phishing attempts by scammers sending fraudulent emails claiming that their "cryptocurrency assets are at risk", prompting them to download a fake version of Ledger Live that would then ask for the user's seed phrase. Key takeaway: Current identity systems have failed to deliver the most basic requirements for a successful identity system: security, privacy, ownership, access, protection, interoperability, or linked data portability to identity owners. SelfKey’s mission is to empower individuals to own, control, and manage their personal data; and to help businesses protect personal data entrusted to them by users, and stay compliant with privacy regulators. SelfKey envisions a safer world where individuals are freer because their personal data and privacy is protected and under their control.

Bryce Paul & Pizza Mind: Bitcoin Blockchain Cryptocurrency Ethereum Advocates
Ep. 359 - Why Cryptocurrency is Necessary for a True Democracy, w/ Blockdaemon's Konstantin Richter
In this episode of CRYPTO 101, we meet with Konstantin Richter who unveils his masterpiece, Blockdaemon. This service allows anyone to run one of dozens of blockchain nodes, for free. This not only helps secure the networks, but lets users earn revenue all at the same time. This saves the average consumer weeks and months of time, if they had an expert holding their hand through all the bash prompt commands. Not to mention thousands of dollars in server hardware and upkeep. Why run a node? The more nodes there are under a different user’s control, the more decentralized and secure a network is against censorship, hacks, downtime, and bad actors. It is critical that major crypto networks have tens or hundreds of nodes, if not millions. Major hacking groups, including world governments and intelligence agencies have no problem spooling up thousands of nodes to perform 51% attacks, so it is very important to be conscious of this aspect of cryptocurrency -- the underlying blockchain and infrastructure is very important. Blockdaemon is an amazing leap forward in the ease of running a node. We learn a lot from Konstantin in this episode about not only what goes into running a node, but which cryptocurrencies his platform supports, and even how the user can monetize their node to make passive income from it! If you have time to listen to this podcast, you have the time to take advantage of this opportunity!
