Description

Kirk Hutchison is the Co-Founder of Volt Protocol, an inflation hedged stablecoin built on Ethereum. Kirk is widely known as the gigabrain’s gigabrain when it comes to all things DeFi.

As inflation continues to rise, Kirk couldn’t have joined at a better time. However, Kirk and David dive into much more than inflation.

On this episode, Kirk explains symmetric money systems, self-referential feedback mechanisms, the problems with DeFi today, what Volt is and its future, and so much more.
