    Stablecoins: The Big Picture with Circle CEO Jeremy Allaire

    USDC, backed by Circle and Coinbase’s Centre Consortium has emerged as the dominant “regulated” stablecoin. In this conversation, Circle CEO Jeremy Allaire provides some context around the evolution of USDC as well as where he sees it fitting within the broader macro landscape. He details how the next phase for USDC is to move beyond its use in crypto capital markets and into payments and settlements while drawing comparisons to how Visa and Mastercard developed interoperable standards ultimately adopted by businesses, consumers and governments alike.

    Being a Blockchain CEO in 2020 with Algorand CEO Steve Kokinos

    Being a Blockchain CEO in 2020 with Algorand CEO Steve Kokinos

    Gone are the days when a blockchain network could launch quietly, coordinated over an online forum by an anonymous developer or when a small number of technically minded people could participate in a low-profile token sale. While the early days of Bitcoin and Ethereum came with their own inherent challenges, the high profile network launches of today come with a new set of concerns. How do you gain developer mindshare? How do proof-of-stake networks grapple with the threat of exchanges centralizing staking? What’s the best way to handle token distributions in today's investor driven landscape? 
    In this conversation, Ryan and Algorand CEO, Steve Kokinos discuss what it’s like to be at the helm of a newly launched smart contracting platform in 2020.
