    Will Blockchain save the Metaverse with Anthony Day

    Will Blockchain save the Metaverse with Anthony Day

    The short but sweet Nordic summer is over and it's time to kick off season six of Fintech Daydreaming! We've been trying to get the blockchain leader and fellow podcast host Anthony Day (host of the podcast "Blockchain won't save the world") to be a guest on our podcast for quite a while now so we couldn't have been happier to get him to join our hosts Pål Krogdahl and Ville Sointu to kick off this season.  

    Will we finally get a proper definition of web3? Is there a real use case for web3 and does it connect to the metaverse somehow? Did Ville manage to use an NFT to get to a secret party during his summer vacation? This and more answered - all you need to do is hit that play button 👉

As a bonus Ville drops a career newsbomb seemingly out of nowhere 💣

    Special thanks to all our fans for listening and watching us during season five. Fintech Daydreaming will return for season six in August with a fresh lineup of guests and topics. But for now, we wish you all a great summer, and a big thank you to our guests for season five...

    Around the fintech world in 50 minutes with Hyung-Gon Paul Yoo

    Summer is almost here but the team at Fintech Daydreaming are showing no signs of slowing down as we finally got one of our most anticipated guests to join us for a chat. Our hosts Pål Krogdahl and Ville Sointu sat down with Paul Yoo from Meta who has a phenomenally interesting career that has taken him around the world working for some of the best known brands in fintech.

    We got to talk about everything from crypto to the metaverse and ended up learning about how once upon a time bitcoin “almost” took over the economy in Thailand. Tune in. You won’t regret listening to this one.

    Digital for good with Chris Skinner

    Digital for good with Chris Skinner

    Getting the fintech legend and author Chris Skinner to join us for a chat in our Fintech Daydreaming studio was a fantastic milestone for us.

    Our hosts Pål Krogdahl and Ville Sointu got to talk about everything from his new book “Digital for Good” to the metaverse, but little did we expect that we’d learn what Chris thinks about one of our hosts (all said in jest), superhero fintech jokes and the legend of Captain Cake 🍰

    Sounds confusing? Listen in and everything will become clear.
