    #001: Blockchain Chatter - Chloe White

    #001: Blockchain Chatter - Chloe White

    Welcome to Blockchain Chatter, our new show where Blockchain leaders join Dexter Cousins for a chat. 

    To kick off the show we couldn’t think of a better person who embodies the spirit of what this show is about 

    Today’s guest is Chloe White the CEO of Genesis Block.

    Chloe is Blockchain Leader of the year and has worked directly on blockchain policy since April 2018. Chloe joins us to talk about the current state of the industry following last week's collapse of FTX.

    Can the industry regroup or does this spell the end. What lessons can we draw from the GFC and where might there be new opportunities in the future? What role do regulators play now and how do we educate the public and regulators on the nuance of our industry.

    Find out more about Genesis Block - https://genesisblock.com.au/

    It seems a little crazy to start a blockchain podcast the week after the FTX collapse! 

    So why have we done it? 

    It has never been more important to provide a platform for the builders in this space. 
    Too much attention and focus has been given to crypto influencers and noise makers. 

    Blockchain Chatter aims to cut through the noise and give the industry's outstanding leaders the opportunity to talk about their businesses,  the big problem they solve and how Blockchain and emerging technology can become the operating system of a fairer, safer, and more efficient world.

    Chris Brycki - Stockspot

    Welcome to episode 128 of Fintech Chatter, the show where Fintech leaders join Dexter Cousins for a chat. Today’s guest is Chris Brycki the Founder and CEO of Stockspot.

    Chris started Stockspot so that Australians could invest better with affordable smart tech and good advice.  We've watched this vision come to life as a user of Stockspot.
