George Kaloudis, analyst at CoinDesk Research, joins to share the cutting-edge research into Bitcoin’s on-chain metrics and the growth of the Lightning Network. Many people do not realize that Bitcoin’s Lightning Network was first implemented in 2017, and its conceptual origins were conceived in 2015. It has slowly and steadily been accumulating more users, growing its capacity to $140 million USD today. Kaloudis presents viewers with a thorough deep dive into the Lightning Network, as well as broader topics such as institutional adoption, with helpful visuals for each topic. He also provides a closer look at several on-chain metrics like transaction fees, on-chain liquidity, and exchange flows. Interviewed by Ash Bennington on October 11, 2021.

"The Bear Trend Is in Place Until It Isn't"
Cryptocurrency prices are rising, but there are some conflicting signals coming from the market. According to Dean Carr, "It's a patience game." Carr, the founder of C The Light Trading, breaks down charts of Bitcoin, Ethereum, and other altcoins on his watch list, taking a technical approach to illustrate his main point. Carr thinks we need to see more upside rotation over multiple time frames to confirm a trend is in place before we enter new trades. And we may get some great short- to medium-term opportunities if we see those confirmations. Carr adds a note of caution: “The bear trend is in place until it isn't," and traders should be careful about "FOMO'ing in." Carr also shares the levels he’s watching for BTC, ETH, and other altcoins and explains how he analyzes risk-reward setups before he enters trades in a must-watch episode for traders and investors who appreciate the value of technical analysis. Recorded on July 26, 2022.
How Data Analytics Can Secure Crypto's Future
How have ransomware cartels evolved over the last seven years? What does a day's worth of Ethereum transactions look like? How about the animated history of initial coin offerings – what does that tell us? Max Galka, the co-founder and CEO of blockchain analytics firm Elementus shares his insights on all that and much more with Real Vision’s Ash Bennington. Max describes stunning visualizations of blockchain data to illustrate his points. He and Ash also discuss the evolution of ransomware attacks and the connection between ransomware and blockchain technology. At this point, sophisticated ransomware crime groups have collected billions of dollars from victims, discouraging people from participating in the cryptoverse. Max is passionate about identifying these malicious addresses to stop criminal activity and facilitating the adoption of blockchain technology. Recorded on July 14, 2022.
What Sets This Crypto Options Platform Apart?
What makes Deribit one of the industry's leading platforms for crypto derivatives? Chief Commercial Officer Luuk Strijers gives Qredo's Ben Whitby a detailed look at what Deribit does, including how it structures and manages trades in this fast-moving market. Reacting to Luuk, Ben frames the company’s role as well as anyone: "I don't think the market would operate without [Deribit]." Luuk and Ben also discuss the direct fallout from the meltdown of Three Arrows Capital. Because 3AC was a shareholder, Deribit extended credit to the now-bankrupt hedge fund and is now one of the many creditor-claimants seeking a total of $2.8 billion of redress. "It was a painful lesson learned," Luuk notes. Despite the recent carnage, open interest is growing at Deribit, and he’s optimistic about how its approach will appeal to investors. What about Deribit makes it a favorite trading place for institutions and sophisticated traders? What's next for this thriving crypto options platform? Luuk and Ben address these questions and more in today's episode. Recorded on July 18, 2022.
