    139. Interviews: Yuval Rooz, CEO of Digital Asset & a special announcement from Simon Taylor

    In a special episode of Blockchain Insider, Simon Taylor is in conversation with Yuval Rooz, CEO of fintech company Digital Asset. Yuval became CEO of the fintech company in 2019 and since then has shifted focus to smart contracts and DAML. We kick off the episode with the reasons for this change, the importance of distributed ledger and power of DAML. Moving onto the bigger picture issues in blockchain, Yuval and Simon also discuss the importance of interoperability as governments move towards central bank digital currencies and the opportunities for DLT applications beyond fintech and financial services in a post-coronavirus world.


    But first, we hear a special announcement from host Simon Taylor about the current COVID-19 pandemic and the future of the podcast.

On the other side of the crypto spectrum, Ether is on a high with prices rising by 20% ahead of their upgrade.

    This week we kick things off with a discussion about central bank digital currencies. As coronavirus continues to spread across the globe we're beginning to see shifts in attitudes towards CBDCs. In the US, before Donald Trump signed into law the largest economic stimulus package in US history, there were murmurs of a digital dollar just before it was dropped from the bill. Meanwhile, in China, efforts to create a national digital currency have just gone up a notch as they complete development of the basic functions of a CBDC. A lot can happen in a few weeks, and in this episode, we continue to dig into the latest blockchain and crypto news including:



    House stimulus bills adopt then promptly drop 'digital dollar' (02:18)
