    Bringing Access to Private Credit - Nelson Chu of Cadence

    Bringing Access to Private Credit - Nelson Chu of Cadence

    In this episode we have the opportunity to talk with Nelson Chu of Cadence.  We are following our current Theme of Lending and Blockchain.

    Cadence is a platform that is providing investors with access to private credit securities.  They are using Blockchain on the backend to provide for more efficient administration.  

    In this conversation with Nelson, we talk about how investors have an appetite for more alternative investments, especially those that can provide short term yield.  We also talk about their performance through the COVID lockdowns and economic uncertainty.  

    Nelson's background in private credit markets help us take this discussion back to Traditional Finance, and discuss where he sees the market going based on current investing trends, and on current and new technology.

    Cadence has been one of our favorite projects for a while, so we're glad to catch up with Nelson.

    Funding Crypto Loans - Trevor Smyth of Arctos Capital | Interaxis.io

    In this podcast episode we have the opportunity to talk with a pioneer in the world of Crypto and Digital Asset lending - Trevor Smyth of Arctos Capital.

    Trevor has an interesting start in the space.  His father, Randy, was in the construction equipment financing business for years.  After telling Randy about Crypto opportunities, Trevor finally flew Randy out to California, and spent days meeting with the Crypto entrepreneurs. 

    Trevor and Randy then started Arctos Capital, sourcing capital for Crypto-backed Loans through Drawbridge Capital and Ledn.

    Arctos is also now originating loans for Bitcoin mining, and using Cadence as the platform to facilitate those loans.

    Trevor has a unique perspective in that he has financed Crypto-backed loans, and is now using Blockchain technology in Cadence to administer hardware-backed loans.

    Please enjoy this episode.

    Interaxis Podcast | Special Guest - DeFi_Dad talking DeFi and Crypto Incentives

    In this podcast we are joined by the one and only DeFi_Dad. 

    This is part of our series on Incentive Structures in the Crypto and Decentralized Finance ecosystem. 

    There is no one better to discuss all the incentives - Lending and borrowing interest, liquidity pools, mining, staking, etc.

    The DeFi_Dad tries out every new protocol and Dapp, and then creates videos to help users walk through the process.  He understands where he is making some sort of return, and where he is spending excess money.

    We discuss:

    Zapper.fi
    Uniswap
    1inch Exchange
    Compound

    Of course, you need to check out his videos:

    Incentives and Blockchain - A Deep Dive

    Incentives and Blockchain - A Deep Dive

    In this episode, we discuss several of the incentive mechanisms that have come about through Blockchain Technology and Decentralized Finance.

    We start with Bitcoin, and the Proof-of-Work based incentive, block rewards and transaction fees.

    We then move on to discuss some of the other cryptocurrencies that have gone to Proof-of-Stake, and even other hybrid incentive models. 

    In an attempt to disintermediate, the developers have been forced to come up with new incentives to reward the behavior they want, and disincentives to punish the behavior that is not in the best interest of the network.

    This starts our week of Incentives - videos and podcasts this week will all cover different incentives in crypto and digital assets, and how they are attempting to drive the technology and financial ecosystem forward.

    Interaxis Podcast | Oliver Muldoon

    In this episode of the Interaxis Podcast, we talk with Oliver Muldoon, a Crypto and Blockchain writer and researcher.

    We talk about Oliver's foray into crypto from the traditional finance world, where he was at a major bank to witness the 2008-2009 financial crisis first hand.  That sent him looking for better alternatives, where he found Crypto, and now, Decentralized Finance. 

    Oliver also witnessed the ICO boom and bust, and knows some of the similarities with the Financial Crisis. 

    Recently, Oliver was working with a company called Hive Terminal, which is a Slovenian company that offer the ability to factor invoices using Blockchain technology.  We talk about the benefits to the supply chain, and the efficiencies in this trade finance ecosystem.

    The technology will also give more opportunities to those outside the big banks to participate in lending and financial services like factoring.

    It was a very interesting discussion, and great addition to our focus on Tokenizing Real World Assets.

Hahapois ,

Great educational platform for crypto learners!

I’ve hosted a crypto online conference couple years ago but have always been looking for different platforms to continuously educate myself about that industry.

Adam Blumberg has done a great job at educating
