David Birch - The Currency Cold War
In this new episode of Fintech Cappuccino Conny and Brian are joined by David Birch. Dave barely needs an introduction in the fintech scene. His curiosity, insights, expertise, wit and pen have earned him a seat at many board room tables as an advisor, visionary, antagonist or sparring partner. Over the last few years Dave continuously hit the road, keynoting at many events. His content and moderation style took care of packed out conference rooms and continuous dialogue around virtual currencies, digital identity, payments and commerce. Always relating tech to history and everyday life, he makes the complex accessible for all. Something that also flows through his many books: Identity is the new money, Before Babylon and Beyond Bitcoin and his latest: The Currency Cold War : Cash and Cryptography about Hash Rates and Hegemony.
Oliver Bullough - Let me take you down, 'Cause I'm going to Moneyland
In this Fintech Cappuccino podcast Oliver Bullough, author of ‘Moneyland’ and regular contributor to The Guardian and the New York Times takes us deep into the hidden world of power and money in the 21st century: the inhabitants of Moneyland, who go to great lengths to avoid paying tax. And how this influences all of us, how this is not even about politics but about economic rationale, and how the widening gap is a threat at all societal levels. How technology might be able to help put an end to this ‘white collar crime’, what politicians can or should do, how an increasingly global world makes it all the more complex. A serious podcast that allows us a brief look into mind of the relentless ‘prosecutor with a pen’.
