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.

How Tokenization Can Revitalize the Real Estate Industry
Brent Reynolds, CEO and managing partner of Nolan Partners International, and Nick Halaris, president at Metros Capital, come together to discuss the massive adoption of tokenization taking place in the real estate industry. Some have called it the "democratization" of real estate investing, allowing retail investors an opportunity to own a portion of real estate that traditionally is out of their reach. As Nolan Reylonds International vision is long-term, they also are thinking about when regulation catches up with this trend, creating an aqueduct for retail capital to funnel into tokenized real estate. This amount of capital is currently not taken into account by current real estate fund models and has the potential to revitalize the industry. Filmed on September 3, 2021.

Investable Analysis into Big Crypto Themes
The Block Research is on the cutting edge of crypto analytics. Andrew Cahill, research analyst at The Block Research, presents different investment buckets, consensus algos, charts, and more. Cahill spends his days in the weeds and thickets of crypto in order to parse and analyze the space effectively. Outsiders may think of crypto as one large category, but the reality is Bitcoin is different from projects like Polkadot.

Additionally, Cahill walks through charts comparing the top smart contract networks' transaction fees, daily transaction counts, and other relevant data.
