Bitcoin out of the Box is the cryptocurrency podcast that reveals what's really happening behind the scenes. Covering Bitcoin, Ethereum, other top cryptocurrencies and the hottest trends such as decentralised finance (DeFi) and non-fungible tokens (NFTs), we bridge the knowledge gap between institutional investors and the average retail investor.
Ultimate tool for trading like a BOSS (feat. Clover Finance)
Major hurdles for people getting into trading in cryptocurrency and Decentralised Finance (DeFi) are that there are too many chains and difficulty in understanding how to send transactions. Clover Finance ($CLV) aims to solve this with their multi-chain connected wallet where DeFi users can directly connect to the Ethereum, Polkadot, Kusuma, Binance Smart Chain, Avalanche, Fantom, AND Edgeware blockchains seamlessly on the Clover interface.
Clover has also reinvented the idea of feeconomics. Now, users no longer have to separately buy ETH and calculate the amount of gas fees for a transaction. Instead, Clover will act on the sender's behalf and pay gas fees with the same token being transacted by the user.
I interview Cofounders Norelle Ng and Burak Keçeli to how Clover Finance works to solve the issues plaguing cryptocurrency transactions.

The DeFi gem revolutionizing trade, whilst reducing gas fees! (XFai)
Most cryptocurrencies are idling on centralised exchanges (CEXs) and not generating returns for their holders. XFai is solving this problem with its unique decentralised finance (DeFi) platform by creating optimized liquidity and trading in decentralized exchanges (DEXs). The result of this is that trading your portfolio on DEXs such as Uniswap could be comparable, if not more efficient than on a CEX, all whilst reducing price slippage and solving gas fees for millions of traders.
We interview Taulant Ramabaja, Chief Scientist of XFai, to explore how their platform works and how they will help your cryptocurrencies work harder to get more returns.
Have they solved the scaling problem? (feat. Polygon Finance)
Ethereum is currently the preferred blockchain development platform, but it has significant limitations. For instance, the network can get very clogged, and when this happens gas fees for transactions are very expensive. This prevents Ethereum from scaling i.e. being able to handle more projects building and running effectively on their network.
Polygon Finance (formerly Matic) may have finally found a solution with their protocol and framework for building and connecting Ethereum-compatible blockchain networks. We sat down with Polygon's COO Sandeep Nailwal for a deep-dive into the technology behind their revolutionary solution.
THIS SECTOR is highly undervalued (feat. Hacken, HAPI)
Cryptocurrency and Bitcoin-related hacks resulted in losses of over US$3.5 billion in 2020 alone.
With the popularity of decentralised finance (DeFi), it is common for billions of dollars to be locked into the project’s smart contracts in a matter of days. This makes them prime targets for hackers. Worse still, some projects “rug pull” their own investors and take off with their funds.
This makes cybersecurity and smart contract auditing necessary for the continued survival of this space- and companies such as Hacken ($HAI) and HAPI hugely undervalued. We sat down with Dyma Budorin, to learn how they keep DeFi safe and how you can avoid losing your funds in hacks.
