In this podcast, hosts Vikram Ramakrishnan and Faizaan Shamsi, partners at the software consultancy QuantLayer, talk to investors and builders of the cryptocurrency arena. We discuss how industry participants think about crypto assets, how they uncover fraud in the market, and which technologies will turn the budding, nascent crypto space into the revolutionary powerhouse early market participants had hoped for.

We attended the Boston New Technology Fintech & Blockchain group event where we got to present our alerting platform to a couple hundred attendees. We discuss some of the other crypto projects we saw, including Button Wallet, which is a Telegram bot that lets users buy, sell and trade cryptocurrencies. We also discuss p2p lending, and go through our first Mailbag, which covers answers to questions you all have, from crypto market questions to how to say no to a client. Enjoy.
