#19: Bitcoin, ethereum and decentralised finance (DeFi): what every investor needs to know with Diana Biggs

Diana Biggs is CEO of Valour, the issuer of exchange-traded products providing investors with exposure to innovations such as digital assets. Their first product, Bitcoin Zero, is listed on the Nordic Growth Market stock exchange in Sweden. In additional to her role at Valour, Diana is an Associate Fellow with Said Business School, University of Oxford and a Board Member for the World Economic Forum Digital Leaders of Europe initiative.

We cover the following in our conversation:

  • What is bitcoin? And why do we need to understand bitcoin as a technology as well as a digital monetary system?
  • What are the key events or markers (if you like) in the last 3-6months, which have accelerated not just the bitcoin price, but the adoption of bitcoin?
  • How has the pandemic and the global economic crisis around the world played into the growing adoption of bitcoin, crypto & digital assets? And why is this important?
  • Speculators see an inevitable bubble bursting. Others regard long-term interest from investors as evidence that the asset is durable ie bitcoin is here to stay. What's your view?
  • What is decentralised finance?
  • What is ethereum and how does it enable DeFi?
  • Why have DeFi projects exploded recently?
  • What are exchange-traded products? What's ahead for Valour?
  • How do we encourage more women to invest in crypto & digital assets?
  • What does the world look like in 2050 and what's happened to the global monetary system?
