If something exists in the traditional ecosystem in a centralized manner in traditional finance, then it should exist in a decentralized manner. Robbie says the concept of porting over financial primitives from traditional finance to DeFi just made sense. He wanted to create a Donor Advised Fund in the crypto space. A DAF is where you can take property, stocks, or bonds and give it to a charity to sell, then advise on how money is spent. The upside to this is, since you don’t have to sell your charitable donation and give cash to the organization, you aren’t liable for capital gains tax. Last month, Endaoment just passed a million dollars granted and distributed and also raised 2.5 million for their technology development company that powers their software.
Swaroop has been an entrepreneur for the last two decades. It’s in his DNA. After he sold his first company, he dabbled in the blockchain space during the ICO hype of 2017. As a coder, he found himself missing developer tools and wanted to create them for the mainstream. Swaroop started building infrastructure tools and became a bootstrap company, called PowerLoom. Swaroop says they are looking to build their team soon, and anyone interested can look for job listings at powerloom.io. Join us as we talk about creating developer-friendly environments, and how this will facilitate mainstream adoption.
U-Zyn was a software engineer in the early days of bitcoin, and it caught his attention right away. In 2010, he dove in and started mining. U-Zyn went on to launch one of the earliest crypto exchanges in Asia in 2011. He ran that for a couple of years while investing in bitcoin. U-Zyn says that DeFi is a paradigm shift. Changing how crypto assets can be traded. Join us as we talk about DeFiChain, decentralized commodities, and how this new method of finance is here to stay.
Sentinel is a peer-to-peer marketplace for people offering bandwidth or looking for bandwidth. It’s essentially a decentralized VPN protocol. Sentinel was created because people were looking for opportunities to connect securely online with privacy routing their traffic. As the network grows, Dan says more and more companies can leverage this network as their base layer infrastructure for their own VPN. This means they don’t have to run all their own servers, as they’d be leveraging a global, decentralized network.
Jason has been involved in crypto since 2014 and launched EQIbank in 2015. Jason says a large percentage of their clients are in the crypto and DeFi space. They serve clients in over 100 countries globally. They offer a range of services such as lending, wealth management, credit cards, treasury, and bond services. Join us as we talk about DeFi, crypto as a disruptive technology, and how EQlbank bridges the gap between cryptocurrency as traditional finance.
