Crypto on Every Corner: Driving Adoption With Jeremy Allaire and Meltem Demirors - Ep.153

This episode is a discussion from Stellar's Meridian conference, in which I moderated the panel, Crypto on Every Corner: Driving Adoption, featuring Jeremy Allaire, cofounder, chairman and CEO of Circle, and Meltem Demirors, chief strategy officer at CoinShares. In this discussion, we cover:

  • what adoption means and looks like 
  • why cryptocurrency is at a particularly interesting inflection point
  • how central bank digital currencies could affect that
  • how blockchains will recede into the background
  • how existing fintech payment apps will use blockchains and/or crypto
  • where on the road to adoption the industry currently is 
  • the significance of Crypto Twitter as a marketing tool
  • what the crypto industry needs to do in the next year to grow the industry
  • why it would have been easier to start a bank than a crypto business
  • why the separation of money and state is one of the most interesting experiments in history 
  • how we'll see new corporate-like organizations without any connections to any existing legal or financial systems driven by tokens
  • what their favorite crypto adoption success story is
