Amrit Kumar, President and co-founder of Zilliqa, the blockchain platform, is interviewed by futurist Trond Arne Undheim, host of the Futurized podcast and author of Future Tech (2021), Pandemic Aftermath (2020), Disruption Games (2020) and Leadership From Below (2008).
In this conversation, they talk about bridging the worlds of legacy finance and blockchain, scaling blockchain protocols with sharing, security trade-offs, holding community and operational funds by staking, emerging startups, and divergent regulatory paths around the world.
The takeaway is that the future of open finance is rapidly evolving, but that trust will ebb and flow for a while ahead as decentralized and open finance is spreading across the globe with new players building protocols with increasingly smart contracts, speedy platform solutions, and alternative tokens that provide new benefits that appeal to new groups of users and investors.
