The Bitcoin Scaling Dilemma with Shinobi

https://www.whatbitcoindid.com/podcast/the-bitcoin-scaling-dilemma

“If we stop changing Bitcoin right now there is no way that even 1% of 1% of the planet will be able to afford to actually hold their own keys, to actually sovereignly control their own bitcoin, and everybody else it’s just pick your custodian, pick who you trust to hold your bitcoin for you.”

— Shinobi

Shinobi is a pseudonymous Bitcoin educator and the technical editor at Bitcoin Magazine. In this interview, we discuss scaling bitcoin in a self-sovereign way, covenants, OP_CAT and Bitcoin development culture & risks.

How to Combat Illicit Finance Without Killing DeFi | Rebecca Rettig & Miller Whitehouse-Levine

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LrpVhPnSn9g

In today’s episode, Santi is joined by Rebecca Rettig and Miller Whitehouse to update us on the latest policy concerns impacting crypto. They cover the origins of the DeFi Education Fund and the realities of educating regulators on the novelty of DeFi. They then shift gears and discuss onchain illicit activity that exists, how to find a compromise between permissionless systems and state control, the role stablecoins like USDC play, and reactions to the SEC’s proposed dealer rule that threatens DeFi participation. Rebecca breaks down her recently published paper “Genuine DeFi as Critical Infrastructure” offering a conceptual framework for regulation that leverages DeFi’s transparency while allowing permissionless systems to thrive. Stay tuned for all of this and much more!

Zhiming Yang: OrBit Markets – Crypto Derivatives and Structured Products

https://epicenter.tv/episodes/535

Prolonged range bound markets are a hallmark of bearmarkets and they usually end up chopping inexperienced or over leveraged traders. Customised structured products offer a solution for market participants that want to limit their downside, but also the upside, by introducing knock-outs at certain levels or triggers. Such custom options, usually with lower probabilistic chances of occurring, naturally come at a discount. This allows traders to hedge their risk, while also betting on certain outcomes or market scenarios.

We were joined by Zhiming Yang, co-founder of OrBit Markets, to discuss crypto derivatives and how TradFi expertise applies to customising structured products for crypto markets.

Topics covered in this episode:

  • Zhiming’s background in investment banking
  • FX derivative products
  • Exotic options
  • Crypto structured products
  • Custom solutions for crypto miners
  • Hedging Uniswap V3 impermanent loss
  • Options based on prediction markets
  • Managing counterparty risk
  • Protocolising structured products
  • Differences between TradFi and DeFi
