Where better to start the journey of money than on the Yap islands...

In this episode on “What is Money?” Samantha Yap is joined by George Harrap, Co-Founder of Step Finance and Head of DeFi at YAP Global. They touch on different forms of money, issues of trust and accountability with our money, differences in the perceived value of money, and the difficulties that can arise from trying to get our hands on our money when we need it.

Join Samantha Yap on a quest to discover the history of money, to better understand why Bitcoin, cryptocurrencies and decentralised finance may play an important part in our future. She’ll take you on a 5 minute audio journey that touches on the history behind today’s topic, followed by the best parts of her conversation with our first guest, George Harrap.

George is a veteran crypto entrepreneur. Having started in the crypto world almost a decade ago as an early miner, George brings a wealth of experience, having built the first crypto remittance startup in the world, built 6 cryptocurrency exchanges both centralised and decentralised, and launched 12 stablecoins. George now focuses exclusively on the DeFi space - which he believes is the next giant leap for crypto assets and blockchain technology.
