About this Episode

gm. Mauricio Magaldi and Cuy Sheffield are back this week for another deep dive.

In today’s Insights episode, we aim to answer the following question: "What is the current state of crypto, and what is fostering adoption?"

In the past two years, we have covered an immense range of topics and new stories, ranging from all things DAOs, NFTs, web3 advancements and all the exciting news about them, all the way down to regulation, stablecoins and pretty much anything you can think of.

We now want to start drilling a little bit deeper into specific regions, and their own innovations and developments in the crypto sector.

However, before we can do that - we need to zoom out once more, and lay some foundations.

So in today’s show, we’re taking a look at the global state of crypto to explore how the past couple of years have shaped this sector into what it is today, what developments are currently fostering adoption, and as always - what we hope to see in the near future!

We're also joined by some fantastic guests:

  • Jess Houlgrave, Crypto GTM & Strategy at Checkout.com
  • James Smith, Founder and Board Director, Elliptic


  • Part 1 - Laying down foundations - 2:50
  • Part 2 - Fostering adoption - 13:54
  • Part 3 - The future - 31:51

Just a quick reminder - nothing we share here is legal, tax or financial advice. Views or opinions expressed by the panel are their own and do not necessarily reflect the view of the entities they are representing.
