About this Episode

In a special episode of Blockchain Insider, Simon Taylor is in conversation with Yuval Rooz, CEO of fintech company Digital Asset. Yuval became CEO of the fintech company in 2019 and since then has shifted focus to smart contracts and DAML. We kick off the episode with the reasons for this change, the importance of distributed ledger and power of DAML. Moving onto the bigger picture issues in blockchain, Yuval and Simon also discuss the importance of interoperability as governments move towards central bank digital currencies and the opportunities for DLT applications beyond fintech and financial services in a post-coronavirus world.

But first, we hear a special announcement from host Simon Taylor about the current COVID-19 pandemic and the future of the podcast.
