DeFi, Metaverse, and the Next Wave of Web3 with Aya Kantorovich

Every episode, host Alex Kehaya interviews thought leaders, educators, and decentralized builders creating the next wave of the Internet. This episode is brought to you by The Graph.

Alex, in this episode, joins Aya Kantorovich, Head of Institutional Coverage at FalconX, the world's most advanced digital asset trading platform.

They explore what lessons have been learned from Web 1.0 and Web 2.0. Aya shares her thoughts on how the crypto economy has impacted the market, what's next for DeFi, and whether consumers' expectations have changed. 

The first is on the finance side. Think about how crypto gained so much traction; in my opinion, it was Bitcoin as an inflationary hedge, Ethereum as a means to transact, and then DeFi as a cheap way to access capital in a peer-to-peer global way. Whereas in the metaverse, you will be able to move assets and accrue value in a way that's more easily transferable. 

Listen to Alex's full interview with Aya Kantorovich to learn what's next for DeFi and the metaverse. The episode is available for download via Apple, Spotify, and other major streaming platforms.
