#181 - Crypto Derivatives - Interview with Sam Bankman-Fried of FTX

July 24, 2019

Trading and speculation are the engine that drives interest in blockchain technology, and the huge swings in value have captured the attention of wall street.  This brave new world of digital asset trading lured Sam Bankman-Fried from his high-powered wall-street job to found two companies, FTX and Alameda Research, which bring a derivatives exchange and quantitative trading to the blockchain world. 

Everyone has been on tenterhooks waiting for the influx of institutional money into the blockchain space, and FTX is waiting for them, but Sam notes that there are many hurdles that have to be overcome before the big investors will feel comfortable diving in.
