This is our central banking perspectives, featuring guest Jim Cunha, SVP of the Treasury and Financial Services Group at the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston. Cunha is a lifetime central banker, but not your typical one. For several decades at the Fed, his job has been overseeing financial rails that allow massive transactions to take place on a given day. In our exchange, he explains how the Fed may have missed the boat on the first dot.com boom-and-bust and how it led to giant networks like Facebook and Amazon that dominate our modern lives. These are tail end applications that society can't predict ahead of time but wield so much influence on the global economy. That’s why he wants the Fed to stay on the bleeding edge this time by exploring how blockchain can rearchitect the way people and businesses transfer value, changing business models on its head. Among the areas we covered are global remittances, wholesale banking, digital currencies, safety and soundness regulations, and various public-private partnerships.For the last few years, Jim has been active in policy circles, media and tech forums to share his learnings from the Boston Fed's efforts to explore and develop blockchain technology. He assesses the tech based on its: applicability, potential benefits, and risks used in a range of financial areas. He leads the Bank’s applied research and closely tracks the evolution of digital currencies.

This is part 1 in our coverage of Blossom, a St. Louis energy startup, cofounded by Washington University alumni Joe Gardner and Chris Mertens, two tinkerers who want to rethink the current energy business model. They also want to restore power and control back to the consumer while preparing society for a renewable energy future.They talk us through: -how not getting the college internships led them to experiment and build smart gadget solutions for businesses and customers. -their fateful meeting with ex-Boeing engineers on an encryption that had broader implications for the exchange of data between sensors, between people, and bartering of services. -how they got into the Ameren Accelerator, sponsored by a powerful utility player in the mid-west. -how the current energy model, dominated by conglomerates that trade energy in large blocks, are ill-equipped to deal with energy generation from households, an increasing factor as renewable energy becomes popular. -their meeting with big industry whigs at happy hours only to be branded as the guys who didn’t look old enough to drink. -the frustration and rewarding aspects of working with a utility behemoth. -why they chose St. Louis as home based as opposed to other tech hub cities.-the perks of having St. Louis as their startup home based, including better access to industry leaders and low expenses. but also the challenges of being “too cutting edge” with new tech.

Aditya Das is the in-house market analyst for Brave New Coin. With his economics chops and data feeds, he lays out the themes to look for in the cryptoassets market. We hit on the following note: -The supply and demand factors of cryptoassets and why prices overshoot and undershoot (i.e. greed and fear)-Why the market is in a much stronger position before the last bull run thanks to infrastructure building -Augur is a fascinating democratic experiment to predict events, but has potential governance risks -Bitcoin Liquidity Index (BLX) giving institutional players a robust view of Bitcoin price points, suppressing echo chambers and misreporting of market volumes by digital exchanges. -Covering this new asset class is much more interesting than traditional markets, but has its own challenges.Links:https://bravenewcoin.com/insights/contributors/aditya-dashttps://nz.linkedin.com/in/aditya-das-04596056Articles and data metrics mentioned: https://bravenewcoin.com/data-and-charts/indices/blxhttps://bravenewcoin.com/insights/augur-price-analysis-playing-the-long-gameTwitter: @Dascryptoforyou-----------------If you like A Bit Cryptic podcast and want to continue hearing new episodes, please support us through our affiliates (or donation) --If you don't have a Coinbase account, it’s a convenient way to buy, sell, and store smaller cryptocurrency online (it's FDIC insured to $250k).
