The Fascinating Paradox of Cryptocurrency

The Fascinating Paradox of Cryptocurrency

October 12, 2020 • Caitlin Mattingly

Our guest this week is Kim Grauer, head of research at Chainalysis, a blockchain intelligence platform provider. She shares the story of her rather whimsical initial interest in blockchain technology, and how it quickly shifted to a serious academic and professional pursuit.

We’ll hear her views on cryptocurrency and the impact it’s having on monetary policy around the world, its use by criminals, and how initial enthusiasm from investors for anything and everything blockchain related led to a credibility gap that serious researchers are still working to overcome.

This podcast was produced in partnership with the CyberWire.
