Consensus Time – What’s Going on in Web3?

Join Alex Tapscott and Andrew Young as they decode the world of DeFi. Listen in as they discuss Alex’s insights from the Consensus 2023 conference, the state of venture capital funding, a macroeconomic market analysis, factors that may impact crypto moving forward, Bitcoin’s halving less than a year away, Coinbase’s international perps exchange, and more!

Alex travelled down south last weekend to Texas’ capital, Austin, for the Consensus 2023 conference, one of the largest, longest-tenured, and most influential gatherings across the crypto ecosystem and community. Hearing from and speaking to investors, developers, and industry builders, Alex shares his observations and experiences from his three days on the ground. With the current macroeconomic environment of rising interest rates and an unfolding banking crisis, Andrew provides his take on crypto’s role and the impact such influences will have on it. Despite regulatory crackdown within American borders, Coinbase has launched a perps exchange based out of Bermuda, offering non-U.S. traders 5x leverage with perpetual futures.

Tune in to the 94th DeFi Decoded episode to hear Alex and Andrew discuss all things Consensus 2023 and the macroeconomic environment for crypto. How was Alex’s experience at the conference, and what insights and lessons did he learn? What is the state of the macroeconomic environment, and how might its outlook impact crypto? What is Coinbase’s new international perps exchange, and how does it work?
