    Mona El Isa - Founder, Enzyme Finance - Ep019

    Episode 19 of CopperCasts welcomes DeFi entrepreneur, Mona El Isa, who joins us at our London office to discuss her popular on-chain asset management protocol, Enzyme Finance.


    Enzyme empowers individuals to set up, manage and invest in customised on-chain investment vehicles. According to DeFi Pulse, the protocol currently has over $138m in assets committed to the platform.


    CopperCasts are split into two parts. The first is a short (2min) video in which our guest shares with us something they find unusual or inspiring about the digital asset space. The second half is a traditional audio-only podcast, which you can search for in all the usual places.


    In this audio-only conversation, Mona talks to host, Tyler Kenyon, about her background as a trader at Goldman Sachs and a fund manager, and the struggles she faced in TradFi. She then details what attracted her to the world of crypto, the origin story of Enzyme and also discusses the protocol’s new Sulu release.


    Make sure to check out Mona's Show & Tell on our Youtube channel to hear Mona discuss the asset management tech stack for DeFi and the growth of the Enzyme protocol.

    Rebecca Ferguson - Actress - CopperCasts Ep 017

    In somewhat of a departure from our regularly scheduled programming, we bring you a unique episode of Coppercasts with our special guest, award-winning actress Rebecca Ferguson.

    John Newbery – Founder & Director, Brink – CopperCasts Ep 015

    Many people think of Bitcoin as a 'finished product’ that does not require technical improvements. This couldn’t be further from the truth. Today, it is estimated that there are around 20-30 developers fixing bugs, improving performance and adding new features to Bitcoin. 


    Episode 15 of CopperCasts welcomes John Newbery, one such developer who for over five years has been working on enhancing the security of the most sophisticated software of our time.


    In 2020, John founded Brink, a non-profit organisation that supports Bitcoin’s open source developer community and has already funded six developers through its grants and fellowship programs. 


    In this fascinating conversation with Tyler, John explains the inner workings of bitcoin core development, highlights the challenges that Brink is tackling and also describes Bitcoin’s upgrade path.


    Make sure to check out John’s Show & Tell on our Youtube channel where he unpacks how Brink is contributing to Bitcoin’s long-term success in a 3min explainer.

    Philip Gradwell – Chief Economist, Chainalysis – CopperCasts Ep 014

    The latest CopperCasts episode welcomes Philip Gradwell, Chief Economist at Chainalysis, the blockchain analysis company.


    In this conversation, you’ll get a glimpse of how difficult it is to link a wallet address to real identities, how privacy coins such as Monero work, Chainalysis’ plans in DeFi, the true scale of illicit activity occurring on the network, and buying socks with Bitcoin (which Philip once did!).


    Make sure to also check out Philip’s Show & Tell on our Youtube channel, which looks at institutional inflows into the space. Philip describes that since November, large whales have bought 1.7m Bitcoin in total at an average cost of $35k per Bitcoin. He concludes that the willingness to buy the digital asset at this price level likely puts a new floor on the Bitcoin price of at least $35k.
