    Episode 33: DeFi in 2021 - An Interview with Stani Kulechov

    Episode 33: DeFi in 2021 - An Interview with Stani Kulechov

    DeFi markets have exploded over the last 12 months, fueled by innovations in borrowing and lending protocols, widely accessible stablecoins, and new forms of capital markets entirely mediated by open source protocols and software on public blockchains.
    One of the most innovative and high-growth players in the DeFi space is Aave, who today is the 2nd largest DeFi protocol with nearly $4B of value locked in the protocol.  The entire space has grown from just around $1B in early 2020 to nearly $30B today.
    This week we’re joined by Aave Founder Stani Kulechov (https://twitter.com/StaniKulechov), where we’re going to explore the founding and growth of Aave, and the profound long-term implications of decentralized markets infrastructure on the future of how people and businesses everywhere access and use capital.

    Episode 32: Black empowerment with crypto

    Episode 32: Black empowerment with crypto

    Accelerating adoption of crypto is raising significant questions about how it can play a role in improving the economy at large. Not only does crypto have a diversity problem, it is also woefully misunderstood in broader communities, including communities of color. Moreover, as we enter a new era of a Biden Administration, from a financial services and fintech perspective, the progressive wing of the Democratic party is going to be focused on delivering results and improving financial opportunities for underrepresented communities. How can crypto transform economic opportunities for people of color everywhere? 





    Joining us this week to explore these issues and more is Cleve Mesidor, the founder of the National Policy Network of Women of Color in Blockchain. A Washington insider, she served as an Obama Presidential Appointee, a senior staffer in Congress, and the leadership of national political campaigns. She is also the author of The CLEVOLUTION: My Quest for Justice in politics & Crypto.

    Episode 31: DeFi and Self Driving Banks

    Episode 31: DeFi and Self Driving Banks

    While 2020 represented an enormous growth year in crypto assets on the whole, the defining theme that drove so much of both the innovation and economic opportunity was driven by DeFi. The rapid growth of Compound Protocol and the launch of the COMP governance token sparked enormous growth in the entire category of decentralized protocols for financial market infrastructure.  A year ago there was just $800M in value locked in DeFi smart contracts, and today has mushroomed to over $23B.  But this is just the start of mega-trend that will eventually upend multi trillion dollar capital markets.
    Joining us this week is repeat guest and Compound Founder and CEO Robert Leshner, where we will explore this mega-trend and what 2021 will bring in DeFi, as well as a long-term view on the transformation of capital markets that is at our doorstep.

    Episode 30: The Crypto Transformation

    Episode 30: The Crypto Transformation

    Kicking off 2021, we’re going to widen out the lens and explore the big picture social and economic impact of crypto.  Rapidly accelerating adoption of blockchains and crypto currency are merely early indicators for and enablers of a much larger global social and economic transformation.  Crypto infrastructure offers a radically new infrastructure on which to construct social and economic institutions, creating a new fabric for how individuals collectively work to create and share value. New ‘corporate forms’ made possible by crypto offer the potential for human economic freedom that transcends the legacy nation state system and forges a new path for how people will organize themselves and society.
    Joining Money Movement host Jeremy Allaire for the 2021 opening episode, The Crypto Transformation, are two innovative leaders and thinkers from the crypto world who are envisioning what the world could become as we keep building. Jeremy will be joined by Balaji Srinivasan (https://twitter.com/balajis), the storied technology entrepreneur, innovator, disruptor and futurist, and Ian Lee (https://twitter.com/ianjohnlee), crypto investor, builder, writer and thinker.  Join us for what will hopefully bring us up to the 100,000 foot view on what’s emerging to be a millennial scale change in how the world is organized.
