Mike Belshe, CEO of BitGo, on how to prevent the “Next FTX”

On this week’s episode of DeFi Decoded, Alex and Andrew sit down with Mike Belshe, Founder and CEO of BitGo, one of the world’s leading firms in institutional staking, custody and trading firms, holding over $20 billion for some of the world’s largest cryptoasset investors and many companies. Mike gives his perspective on the collapse of FTX, adding a few sensible recommendations for what industry leaders can do to prevent the “next FTX.” He tells us why he’s super bullish on DeFi but also why we will still need trusted third parties like BitGo in the future. Andrew and Alex mostly just listen as Mike gives a masterclass on how to run a digital asset business safely, sustainably and with an eye for future growth.
