Dan chats with David Lucatch, CEO of Liquid Avatar Technologies.

Unlike most metaverse companies, however, this has nothing to do with cryptocurrency. Instead, it leverages the technology side: the blockchain. And there is not a cryptocurrency in sight.

This week, our host Dan Ashmore is joined by Sasha Ivanov, founder and CEO of the cryptocurrency Waves.

A refreshingly honest episode, Ivanov laments that crypto has become a money grab, a worse place than it was a few years ago when it was more tech-focused, with an emphasis on solving problems rather than making a quick dollar.

Ivanov also outlines his opinion that crypto simply won't deliver on any of its promise unless it m...

Paolo Ardoino is the CTO of Tether, the world's biggest stablecoin and third biggest cryptocurrency, behind only Bitcoin and Ethereum.

Obviously with a cryptocurrency the size of Tether, there is no shortage of topics to be discussed. But in this current climate of mass inflation, it's especially topical given the power a dollar stablecoin could provide to so many developing countries with currencies spiralling out of contr...

Ah, Dogecoin.

Love it or hate it, it's the OG memecoin.

But can it ever be more than a meme? The Dogecoin community is notoriously committed,  and anytime there are that many people bought into one vision, the network effects alone mean that if it can be monetised, there could be something very valuable here.

Of course, that's the big question - could there be a utility here? Or is it just a silly joke?

So, can you actually pay with Bitcoin, or is it all a gimic? What do locals think? Is it a wise move? Dan gives his view to Michael Charalambous, Director of Invezz.

    The most notorious mass murder in Ohio’s history happened on the night of April 21, 2016 in rural Pike County.
