87 - The Future of Maker | Rune Christensen Bankless

    • Investing

Rune Christensen is the Founder of MakerDAO and one of the pioneers of the DeFi space. As one of the earliest DeFi protocols, Maker set precedents for tokenomics, governance, and use cases. Maker is setting new precedents with the recent announcement of Société Générale's proposal for a Maker loan using bond tokens.
As a thought leader in Crypto, Rune has had some fascinating takes lately on the plausibility of a multichain future, as well as how incentives can turn DAI into a clean money. From maximalism to environmentalism, this conversation explores it all.
