In the last episode of our new season of Web3 Innovators, our host Conor Svensson is joined by Marcos Allende López, CTO at LACChain and Specialist in Blockchain, Digital Assets, Quantum Technologies, and SSI at  Inter-American Development BankEpisode highlights:How Marcos started to learn more about blockchain technologies and cryptocurrencies after applying for his current position at Inter-American Development BankHow quantum technologies and blockchain are linked by cryptographyThe work that Marcos is doing on blockchain and how this is developingHow Marcos believes we need better assurance frameworks in addition to the regulatory policiesThe biggest challenges Marcos sees with quantum and blockchain technology both in the immediate and futureHow Marcos believes we should be focusing on quantum resistance now so we have solutions in place should quantum computers be ready before the blockchain networks are ready for themHow they created one of the first orchestration vehicles for blockchainThe advice Marcos would give to anyone hesitant to use blockchainKey Takeaways:Quantum computing and quantum cryptography which are being actively developed are essential for the blockchain Web3 and all the assets that are now being created and generated in blockchain networks. So the quantum and blockchain worlds are actually very connected and it is very important to start having a conversation around what might happen in the next few years around this. - MarcosMy work has been focused on building and maintaining something that is between the enterprise and the crypto blockchain worlds, which is a permission public blockchain. So basically we created this infrastructure that is intended for Latin America and the Caribbean but available globally, with suitable features for public and public sectors. - MarcosWe need to start having the conversation about quantum computers hacking blockchain now because the solution might not be that easy. Replacing or adapting the cryptography of current blockchain networks is not going to be an easy problem to solve because blockchains are so inherent to the type of cryptographic algorithms that they're using. - MarcosIt is important to start developing great interfaces. I think it is time to understand that not every organisation needs to run a blockchain node and run their blockchain, their smart contracts and their APIs, and do their integrations. We know how difficult it becomes because some organisations don't have the expertise or don't need to run their own notes and smart contracts and be responsible and accountable for that. - MarcosConnect with Marcos on TwitterResources:Inter-American Development BankGlobal Leaders TodayLACChainLACNet➡️ Remember to leave us a 5* review and we'd love to hear your comments too!➡️ Follow Web3 Labs on Twitter➡️ Follow Web3 Labs on LinkedIn➡️ Follow Conor on Twitter➡️ Get Conor’s latest thoughts on Web3 at https://writing.conorsvensson.com/
In the ninth episode of our new season of Web3 Innovators, our host Conor Svensson is joined by Lex Sokolin, Chief Cryptoeconomics Officer at ConsenSys where he has built and now leads the Cryptoeconomics team.Lex is a New York and London entrepreneur who previously held the role of CMO & Global Fintech Co-Head at ConsenSys. He also writes a Fintech newsletter, Fintech Blueprint.Episode highlights:How being at a Conference and seeing how many other people owned Bitcoin, inspired Lex to startThe challenges surrounding Blockchain adoptionLex’s view on the current capital market situation and how this impacts people’s view on cryptoHow speculation surrounding regulation can generate economic use casesHow Lex believes computational infrastructure will develop as we want to create digital third spaces for ourselves, away from the home and officeThe pain points that people experience in cryptoLex’s opinion on where companies should and shouldn’t be using BlockchainHow he believes Web3 technology will impact the financial landscape over the next 10 yearsKey Takeaways:It’s figuring out and taking action on how to help crypto businesses operate and how to remove barriers that prevent those businesses from having functional operations. So, it’s more about having these seamless rails in place, so that people can engage with the technology. - LexI think that you can draw a line and you can say, is blockchain a cost saver for your company or is it a revenue generator? - LexYou can look at Apollo or KKR, the large private equity firms or some of the large hedge funds that are essentially price insensitive and are willing to continue investing into an ecosystem that they own because they own the underlying capital for the whole ecosystem. - LexI think there's some cases where they just put all of their own float on top of their own system or a system that essentially holds through equity ownership. But I think for most midsize to small, to even medium or large banks, the cost savings story is tough. - LexWhat's going to feel very natural in 10 or 15 years is that you'll have digital ownership over all your stuff. And if it's not on chain, and you don't have it in your wallet, then you will feel like it's not real. Like in the same way that I wouldn't want that paper document today, because it does me no good. - LexConnect with Lex on TwitterResources:ConsenSysConsenSys CryptoeconomicsFintech BlueprintCoinbaseApolloKKR ➡️ Remember to leave us a 5* review and we'd love to hear your comments too!➡️ Follow Web3 Labs on Twitter➡️ Follow Web3 Labs on LinkedIn➡️ Follow Conor on Twitter➡️ Get Conor’s latest thoughts on Web3 at https://writing.conorsvensson.com/
In the eighth episode of our new season of Web3 Innovators, our host Conor Svensson is joined by Weiwu Zhang, Founder and CTO of Smart Token Labs.Weiwu has over 9 years of experience in blockchain technology, alt currency design and trading algorithms. He has served as a blockchain architect for the Commonwealth Bank of Australia, held the R3 global architect office, and also architected 3 altcoins and 7 ICO projects.Smart Token Labs is creating a new standard for a tokenized future, building composable smart token bridges from tomorrow to today.Connect with Weiwu on TwitterEpisode highlights:How Weiwu bought his first Bitcoin in 2010, which sparked his interest in blockchainWhere his inspiration and focus came from, which led to him founding his own company The struggles he faced starting Smart Token Labs at a time when the community viewed tokens differentlyThe broad change of perception and understanding of tokens sparked by NFTsIssues they face with wider adoption of the technologyHow technology capabilities will increase as people demand more functions from tokensWeiwu’s belief that tokens will create a less frictional marketWhat Soulbound tokens are and what they may mean for the futureWhat Weiwu believes mainstream adoption of tokens will look like in 10 years timeKey Takeaways:Instead of trying to focus on how to make the blockchain programmable, I try to understand what blockchain means to the industry. - WeiwuPeople started to see tokens differently because NFTs demonstrated that tokens can be different things. Ever since, it became very easy for us to explain the idea behind Smart Token Labs, how smart tokens can reduce market friction and allow integrated applications like Web3 without synchronised points. - WeiwuBusinesses need to see that with wider access to the market, they're able to sell more goods and services. So they should be more incentivised to use tokens. - WeiwuWe will see a lot of token use cases. We will see all of the smart devices have a token interface.That includes cars, smart luggage or smart meeting rooms. We will see individuals start issuing their time as tokens so that if you want to book a meeting room your app can solve this automatically by the token from the market. - WeiwuPreviously Chrome and Firefox struggled with the idea of whether or not they should be Web3 browsers and connect to the blockchain. The reason they struggled is they didn't see how connecting blockchain would change the web experience. But that will change because they will start to realise that it's not the blockchain they're connecting, it's the token that they're servicing. - WeiwuResources:Smart Token LabsBitcoinCommonwealth Bank AustraliaNFTLaboSoulbound Tokens➡️ Remember to leave us a 5* review and we'd love to hear your comments too!➡️ Follow Web3 Labs on Twitter➡️ Follow Web3 Labs on LinkedIn➡️ Follow Conor on Twitter➡️ Get Conor’s latest thoughts on Web3 at https://writing.conorsvensson.com/
In the seventh episode of our new season of Web3 Innovators, our host Conor Svensson is joined by Tyrone Lobban, Head of Blockchain Launch and Onyx Digital Assets at J.P. Morgan where he’s responsible for identifying and creating innovative blockchain- based products and solutions.Prior to this he was Senior Blockchain Product Manager in J.P. Morgan's Blockchain Center of Excellence and was also the Product Lead for Quorum.Connect with Tyrone on TwitterEpisode highlights:How Tyrone’s career evolved from Product Management in Credit Markets to becoming a Software Developer, before reading the Ethereum White Paper which changed his trajectory into BlockchainThe early days of the Blockchain program at J.P. Morgan and how this subsequently became OnyxWhy J.P. Morgan launched Quorum and how this has developedThe challenges and opportunities J.P. Morgan have faced due to the high level of interest in Blockchain projectsThe complexities when setting up and implementing a use case, even if the end state is clearTyrone’s advice for anyone looking to use technology to solve a problem within their industryThe work that is happening moving money on to Blockchain and how Tyrone sees this progressingKey Takeaways:It was an obvious thing for me to want to get into this technology. I could see, especially with my experience through the financial crisis, how much a technology like this can bring everyone on the same page - having a shared ledger of information, streamlining processes and information flow. How that could really make a difference. - TyroneIt's always been about the technology. Web3 wasn't really a word back then. I'm just extremely passionate about how we can use the tech to make improvements, not just within finance, but across industries generally. - TyroneIt’s evolved over the years, but I would say internally we've been quite consistent around how we want to use the technology. What we have learned is exactly where it makes sense and where it doesn't necessarily make sense. And that has helped us to be more precise around the types of use cases that we focus on. - TyroneFor us it's really about how we create value not only for ourselves, but for our clients and how we really make it a step change improvement. - TyroneWe're looking to disrupt an industry or disrupt a business or create something entirely new. So it's very rare that you don't have this challenge of okay, what is the interim step going to be? - TyroneWe launched a tokenization platform called Onyx Digital Assets, which is a general tokenization platform. It allows for you to represent traditional assets on Blockchain. We've seen real value through this platform. We are saving millions of dollars a year. - TyroneResources:Onyx Digital AssetsEthereum White PaperEthereum Enterprise Alliance Quorum➡️ Remember to leave us a 5* review and we'd love to hear your comments too!➡️ Follow Web3 Labs on Twitter➡️ Follow Web3 Labs on LinkedIn➡️ Follow Conor on Twitter➡️ Get Conor’s latest thoughts on Web3 at https://writing.conorsvensson.com/
In the sixth episode of our new season of Web3 Innovators, our host Conor Svensson is joined by Daniel Heyman the Co-Founder and CEO of Palm NFT Studio. Palm NFT studio is a collective of Software Developers, Generative Artists, Storyworld Creators, and Strategists and spans all aspects of Web3 technology and creative production.Before starting his current company, Daniel was the Co-Founder of PegaSys, which is now the Protocol Engineering division of ConsenSys.Episode highlights:How studying the adoption of mobile technology in Kenya got Daniel interested in the spaceHis learning outcomes from founding a company that wasn’t successful and the path after thisWhere the inspiration for Palm NFT Studio came from and its founding storyThe challenges the company has faced in its 1st year and how they have worked to overcome themTheir aim for people to have direct ownership over the digital assets they care about and how they are trying to make this a realityDaniel’s belief that eventually all assets will be represented by NFTsKey Takeaways:It seemed evident to me that if we could connect the biggest brands in the world into this technology innovation, we could not only produce some really meaningful projects, but we could use those as the tip of the spear to broader adoption of our entire ecosystem. So Palm Studio set out to create the best platform for large scale web artists, creators, and brands to adopt Web3 technologies. - DanielA huge problem that NFT’s have is the misconception in the market of what they are. A lot of people see them as speculative assets that are there to make a quick buck, and people understandably react negatively to that idea. - DanielWe need to do a lot of work educating the fan base that this isn't a way to make a quick buck. It is to give the audience a deeper connection to the brand and people's relationship to the brand. It’s to give them a piece of the universe, or a piece of the art, or something they can truly own themselves. - DanielEverything is focused around delivering value to the end user and if there's revenue associated with that, wonderful. But, just like any product, you start from the point of what value you are providing, not how much money you can make. - DanielMy belief is that in five years, 99% of NFTs will either be free or below $10. These need to be things that everyone can adopt and consume and interact with, and they can't just be high value collectables for the crypto rich. - DanielResources:Palm NFT StudioPegaSysConsenSysMIT's Poverty Action LabSafaricomDefiSummerDamien Hirst Project➡️ Remember to leave us a 5* review and we'd love to hear your comments too!➡️ Follow Web3 Labs on Twitter➡️ Follow Web3 Labs on LinkedIn➡️ Follow Conor on Twitter➡️ Get Conor’s latest thoughts on Web3 at https://writing.conorsvensson.com/

He was also in the ‘Top 40 under 40’ ranking by the German Business Magazine, Capital. Episode highlights:How Philipp started Bitcoin as a hobby, before setting this up within the University Can Bitcoin be framed as a commodity?Whether Bitcoin and Ethereum are decentralised assetsExploring new developments in the Web3 domainHow recent FTX Exchange activity has affected the crypto marketWhy Philipp believes companies have struggled to get into the Blockchain and the workaround for thisThe pros and cons of regulation in the spacePhilipp’s view on legacy vs new networks How new technologies are changing the way we work and who comes into the spaceKey Takeaways:As years have been passing, I think we can say that we are now regarded as an institution, as a think tank, educating people in the field focusing on all these topics, including Bitcoin, a couple of crypto assets projects and also focusing on stable coins and so on. - PhilippEven Bitcoin is not fully decentralised. You have some central aspects there as well. But from all that we know, I think Bitcoin is by far the most decentral asset out there. - PhilippIt's a little bit sad for Bitcoin, because Bitcoin was never the problem this year. Bitcoin was something like the victim, it has been dragged down, like synchrony with other assets. - PhilippIn the token ecosystem, in the crypto ecosystem, there are also approaches popping up with regard to Web3 in the metaverse which will be really changing the world. - PhilippCorporations have had huge difficulties getting into the blockchain ecosystem. They try to apply this technology like any other enterprise technology, but blockchain is different. - PhilippBlockchain creates new economic areas which haven't been there, and therefore, they can't be one to one compared to existing legacy domains. - PhilippResources:Connect with Philipp on TwitterFrankfurt School Blockchain Center (FSBC)Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung (FAZ)CapitalNeo Banks➡️ Remember to leave us a 5* review and we'd love to hear your comments too!➡️ Follow Web3 Labs on Twitter➡️ Follow Web3 Labs on LinkedIn➡️ Follow Conor on Twitter➡️ Get Conor’s latest thoughts on Web3 at https://writing.conorsvensson.com/

Even if philosophically it might be losing.” - JulianResources:Network StateEthereumInvestaxIxswapInfinity and Beyond Podcast➡️ Remember to leave us a 5* review and we'd love to hear your comments too!➡️ Follow Web3 Labs on Twitter➡️ Follow Web3 Labs on LinkedIn➡️ Follow Conor on Twitter➡️ Get Conor’s latest thoughts on Web3 at https://writing.conorsvensson.com/

He later sold it to Microsoft, and it’s now known as Microsoft Bing.Connect with Steve on TwitterEpisode highlights:How Steve was introduced to Ethereum What is the biggest challenge that Matter Labs has seen as an organisation?Releasing the world’s first end to end general purpose zkProver onto Testnet.Going live on mainnet with a full end to end ZK system that is EVM compatible. A brief overview of what a prover is in this context. Blockchain as an internet computer, not a database. The tension around the topic of privacy in blockchain.Steve gives advice to those who are thinking about the potential Web3 and blockchain could have in their industry.Key Takeaways:“Two days ago we released the world's first end to end general purpose zkProver onto Testnet.” - Steve“What's so beautiful about ZK technology is that unlike other technologies it actually scales infinitely because it has the inherent property of recursion in it, and it can scale things with perfection because it is not some sort of game theory where you're paying people to find fraud in the system, it is a mathematical proof based system so it just is perfect.”  - Steve“A decentralised blockchain cannot be shut down and it cannot be hacked. Therefore, there is no role for the government, they cannot police this, they cannot adjudicate it, they cannot make laws against it with any effect. And what does that mean for humanity? What does that mean for society?” - SteveResources:EthereumMatter Labs zksynczkEVMzkSync End-to-End Prover➡️ Remember to leave us a 5* review and we'd love to hear your comments too!➡️ Follow Web3 Labs on Twitter➡️ Follow Web3 Labs on LinkedIn➡️ Follow Conor on Twitter➡️ Get Conor’s latest thoughts on Web3 at https://writing.conorsvensson.com/
