    The Blockchain Miracle (ft. Dr. Oriol Caudevilla)

    The Blockchain Miracle (ft. Dr. Oriol Caudevilla)

    Blockchain, for all its discourse, is still perceived by many as merely the underlying technology that enables the existence of cryptocurrency. Since its inception, industry professionals and corporations large and small have been working hard to incorporate blockchain into their operations to bolster their businesses. 2022, in particular, was a breakthrough year in blockchain adoption in finance - numerous central banks and hundred-year-old banks are, for the first time, developing and using elements of blockchain infrastructure to support CBDC and financial instruments.
    On the latest episode of the Crypto Savvy: The Essentials podcast, host Jizzles spoke to "Asian FinTech Speaker of the Year" Dr. Oriol Caudevilla, who explained why blockchain should be a force to be reckoned with in the TradFi space, especially in trade finance deals. He also debunked the misconception that distributed ledger technology (DLT) is equivalent to blockchain.

    FTX Post-Mortem: What's Next for Crypto?

    FTX Post-Mortem: What's Next for Crypto?

    FTX, one of the largest crypto exchanges in the world, stunningly collapsed and filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy, sending shockwaves throughout an already-reeling industry. Host Jizzles caught up with Lesia Marchenko (Vice President of JKL Capital) and Ian Lam (Founder of trading firm Satori Research), who shared their takeaways on the FTX debacle and the subsequent ripple effects and contagion still felt across the industry to this day, as well as some of the key lessons learnt from the incident.
    As HashKey, JKL and Satori Research are all based in Hong Kong or have operational footprints in the city, the three of them also gave their thoughts on what the latest regulatory direction and policy measures announced recently by the Hong Kong government mean for the city? Will Hong Kong become the de facto crypto hub in the future?
