    202. Insights: Tokenised deposits, stablecoins and when best to use them

    gm. Mauricio Magaldi and Catherine Gu are back this week, talking about tokenized deposits — We’re taking a closer look at what they are, how they intersect with CBDCs, and how bankers are thinking about using these assets.


    In general, tokenized deposits have been viewed as an alternative to stablecoins or CBDCs, though payments made with tokenized deposits can be a little more complex. We also take a look at the future of these different assets and the implications they have for banks, the blockchain industry, and the end customers.

    200. Insights: The future of bitcoin

    200. Insights: The future of bitcoin

    gm. Mauricio Magaldi and Catherine Gu are back this week, talking about the future of bitcoin.


    We’ll dive into what people in the space are building and ultimately, how do we create more utility around BTC, arguably the most important asset in crypto.


    Bitcoin is one of the most important and secure blockchains and assets, but the challenge with transacting BTC has always been its scalability, high cost and slow speed when transacting. Lightning Network is a layer-2 built on top of Bitcoin that enables users to send BTC quickly and cheaply by moving transactions off of the main blockchain. We'll discuss some exciting news surrounding Lightning Network and the main use cases we’ve seen, many of which are efforts to bring BTC to the mainstream as an asset you can transact with.


    To do this, we are joined by some amazing guests:



    Jasper De Maere, Head of Research at Outlier Ventures
