Pantera Blockchain Summit 2023
VeradiVerdict - Issue #256
Recently, Pantera celebrated it's 10th Anniversary of being focused exclusively on investing to the blockchain industry and hosted an intimate gathering known as the Pantera Blockchain Summit. We bought together some of the brightest minds in the cryptocurrency community, ranging from programmers, regulators, lawyers, to some of the leading entrepreneurs in the space. Speakers included leaders from Apollo, Coinbase, and the CFTC. Check out the new summit website for both highlight and full length videos.
In this first video, I chat with Emilie about regulations for crypto globally and in the US, the role that Coinbase plays in the evolution of the global financial system, and the areas for both product and geographic expansion for Coinbase.
In this second video, I chat with Nikil about what's driving developers to build in this environment, what verticals in crypto are seeing the most developer activity and are most interesting to him, how Alchemy thinks about the M&A market, and what's on the roadmap for the company.
