Listen to the new episode of Pagecast! Refilwe Moloto chats to Steven Boykey Sidley and Simon Dingle about Beyond Bitcoin: Decentralised Finance and the End of Banks
The new episode of Pagecast, the podcast from Jonathan Ball Publishers, is out now!
In this week’s episode, Refilwe Moloto yanks the blockchain with Steven Boykey Sidley and Simon Dingle, authors of Beyond Bitcoin: Decentralised Finance and the End of Banks.
After over a decade of Bitcoin, which has now moved beyond lore and hype into an increasingly robust star in the firmament of global assets, a new and more important question has arisen. What happens beyond Bitcoin? The answer is decentralised finance – ‘DeFi’.
Tech and finance experts Sidley and Dingle argue that DeFi – which enables all manner of financial transactions to take place directly, person to person, without the involvement of financial institutions – will redesign the cogs and wheels in the engines of trust, and make the remarkable rise of Bitcoin look quaint by comparison. It will disrupt and displace fine and respectable companies, if not entire industries.
Pagecast offers you insider interviews with recently published authors, looking into the process of writing, exploring the narratives within and providing you with the story behind the story.
