In this episode we sit down with Krishna Sriram, the Managing Director of Quantstamp, to discuss insurance in crypto.Why? Because over the past year, billions of dollars have been locked in DeFi protocols. Yet more and more hacks seem to be occurring, and in the first four months of 2022 alone $1.3 billion was stolen. That's an enormous number and it's critically relevant to traders and LPs who might lose money. That’s why this episode seeks to break down common vulnerabilities within the crypto space, how insurance works within the crypto industry, and how traders can protect themselves with existing crypto insurance solutions.
The largest DAOs currently account for $12B in treasury funds, managed by roughly 1.7m voters – and that’s only what’s being recorded on-chain. These decentralized organizations are becoming increasingly consequential, yet the true size of the rapidly growing DAO ecosystem is difficult to measure.Why? Because most DAOs are burgeoning communities that have not yet shifted their treasuries, governance processes, and other activities onto a blockchain network. And yet DAOs are increasingly changing everything about how we organize people and resources, from high school and chess clubs to international governments and everything in between. Anyone who wants to organize people and resources in the future will be asking themselves whether they want to do it the old way or through a DAO, so if you want to know which way the wind is blowing then tune in today.
This conversation with Nikita Ovchinnik of the 1inch Network is a great listen for anyone who’s interested in how crypto projects approach business development. Why? Because crypto biz dev is unlike that of other industries, in that multi-million dollar deals are often executed without a formal contract or completed between fully decentralized projects that don't even have a leader. But because projects come out with partnerships and announcements all the time, and it's often very difficult for ordinary users or community members to understand what's important to a project’s long-term success versus what's just for show. To that end, this episode is an expansive conversation that covers what’s truly important for business development in the crypto space – whether you’re interested in raising funds, teaming up for a new product launch, or expanding your project onto an entirely new chain.
