We. Are. Here. Today we bring you: an in-depth conversation about Fintechs and Crypto with fantastic guests from Current and Fireblocks.

All this and much more on today's Blockchain Insider! All this and much more on today's Blockchain Insider!

Simon Taylor and Cuy Sheffield are back to discuss and unpack all things Fintechs and Crypto. In this Insights show, we want to take a deep dive into what their relationship has been like over the past few years. A couple of episodes ago, we visited the relationship between big banks and crypto - with incumbents dismissing Bitcoin and Co. at the very start. Now, at the beginning of 2022, not only are large banks offering crypto custody and leading in investments in crypto in 2021, but fintechs aren't too far behind either.

But what has changed, and what is their role in the crypto space, and vice versa? Join us while we try to unpack and ask all the right questions to get to the bottom of this!

Simon and Cuy are joined by fantastic guests who are experts in the ever-evolving crypto space:

  • Trevor Marshall, CTO at Current
  • Michael Shaulov, CEO at Fireblocks
