As much a philosopher as he is a technologist, Sergey Nazarov, co-founder of Chainlink, joins Real Vision to discuss some of the core theses of DeFi and the meta-layer’s role in smart contracts. Smart contracts will likely play a large role in the future of finance, but they have a long way to go. Companies like Chainlink and their partners are working to expand what they call “the meta-layer,” the framework connecting blockchain ecosystems to off-chain datasets in order to build out more complicated smart contracts. This is all part of the Chainlink 2.0 mission. Nazarov walks viewers through interesting developments on this front as well as additional topics like the quantum risk to DeFi, lessons from the ‘08 financial crisis, and more.

"Reading the Soup" as a Crypto VC Firm
Picking the big fish in the sea of crypto is no easy task—George McDonaugh, co-founder and managing director of KR1 plc, and Keld van Schreven, co-founder and managing director of KR1 plc, join Real Vision CEO and co-founder Raoul Pal to share their expertise on early investing. Growing their company to a market cap of over $147 million, van Schreven and McDonaugh are both veterans in the investment space, dating back to the pre-Dot-Com era. With multiple 100x investments made through KR1, they give us a preview into the decision process that goes on behind the scenes, the consequences of being too early, and a fascinating discussion on the future of community-based economies.

Erik Voorhees: The Case for the Decentralization of Business and Money
The separation of church and state was a revolutionary idea—Erik Voorhees, CEO of ShapeShift, and Eric Kryski, CEO and co-founder of Bidali, discuss whether it’s now time to separate money from state as well. Voorhees and Kryski discuss the origins of and new developments taking place at ShapeShift. Criticizing the infrastructure we have around our traditional human resources departments and arguing that they impoverish many of the people they advocate for, Voorhees makes the case for decentralization in many facets of life and the economy. He then applies this principle to money itself—in order to achieve a truly just society, a small, centralized group ought not possess a monopoly on currency. Filmed on July 15, 2021.
The State of Ethereum: A Deep Dive
Ethereum was created to be more than Bitcoin—Christine Kim, research associate at CoinDesk, discusses the many challenges faced and projects undertaken in attaining this goal. The adoption of DeFi has exploded in the last year, and Ethereum has benefited by being the only game in town. Although, as more chains come online and ETH gas prices soar, Ethereum is trying to adapt. Amidst many exciting yet challenging developments surrounding Ethereum, Christine Kim is a valuable resource to anyone interested in keeping up to date. She discusses a range of topics including EIP 1559, the shift to Proof-of-Stake, the "statelessness" dilemma, and much more. Interviewed by Ash Bennington on July 13, 2021.
