Erik Voorhees: The Case for the Decentralization of Business and Money

The separation of church and state was a revolutionary idea—Erik Voorhees, CEO of ShapeShift, and Eric Kryski, CEO and co-founder of Bidali, discuss whether it’s now time to separate money from state as well. Voorhees and Kryski discuss the origins of and new developments taking place at ShapeShift. Criticizing the infrastructure we have around our traditional human resources departments and arguing that they impoverish many of the people they advocate for, Voorhees makes the case for decentralization in many facets of life and the economy. He then applies this principle to money itself—in order to achieve a truly just society, a small, centralized group ought not possess a monopoly on currency. Filmed on July 15, 2021.

Mapping the Future of DeFi
A contrarian thinker in the DeFi space, Sean Lippel, partner and head of digital assets at FinTech Collective, joins Jim Bianco, president of Bianco Research LLC, to bring us through the many facets of DeFi with a new perspective. Lippel, a true expert in the field, makes a case for a possible solution to crypto's propensity to volatility, one of the primary criticisms to its feasibility as a standalone currency. Lippel suggests that continued integration of DeFi with real world assets—whether that’s real estate, commodities, business loans, etc.—will gradually reduce the volatility due to the robustness of real world demand. In addition, Lippel shares intriguing insights on central bank digital currencies, stablecoins, and regulation that break the mold of typical commentators in the space. Filmed on July 21, 2021.

Samir Madani: Tracking Illegal Oil Tankers
Samir Madani, co-founder of Tanker Trackers, joins Real Vision to discuss the nuances of the oil market and his method for tracking international oil tankers to gain insights into oil demand before countries can record their imports. Madani tracks illicit oil transportation on tankers that turn off their tracking devices because they service markets with trade sanctions. He dives into oil demand impacted by the Delta variant and cites the transportation of light oil shipments as evidence for an increase in gasoline consumption among states with fewer Covid restrictions. Madani believes that OPEC’s decision will fail to lower prices in the short term because reopening economies will maintain the supply and demand imbalance leading to a bullish outlook for oil.

Framework: The DeFi Incubator
Michael Anderson and Vance Spencer, co-founders of Framework Ventures, discuss how Framework Ventures is a venture capital firm through and through—however, the company is unique in that it employs a software development department to assist their investees in growing, particularly with tokenization. Spencer believes tokenization has the potential to produce robust network effects, underestimated by traditional applications of Metcalfe's Law. Anderson and Spencer discuss topics including their transition from traditional tech into crypto and the revolutionary implications of protocols like "Automated Market Makers".
