192. Insights: A new world of functionality - a Smart Tokens case study

44min listen

EL. EF. GEE. Today we bring you: a case study on all things smart tokens. What are they? How do they work? What do they mean for web3? All this and much more on today's Blockchain Insider!

gm. Mauricio Magaldi and Cuy Sheffield are back this week for more Insights - this time on the vast world of Smart Tokens!

According to CoinMarketGap’s definition, ‘Smart tokens are simply regular tokens that not only transmit value they contain but also all the information needed to execute a transaction simultaneously’. While that’s accurate, we feel like they are so much more - and that’s why we want to take a deep dive into this topic with some incredible guests.

Join us while we take a look at what exactly smart tokens are, how they came along, how they work, and what they mean for web3!

We are also joined by some amazing guests:

  • Cam Thompson, Web3 reporter, Coindesk
  • Mathew Sweezey, Advisor and Investor, former Co-Founder at Salesforce web3 Studio

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.
