33min listen

We. Are. Here. Simon and Colin are predicting all the things that could happen in the world of blockchain in 2019.

Far from a field, Simon and Colin are in the studio talking about what they think's going to happen around blockchain in 2019.

First off, we take a look at some of the predictions from last year. Some worked out great...others not so much. For the predictions our hosts have some interesting theories and touch on quite a few...

Simon:

  1. The crypto part of "crypto" becomes much more important than the asset or currency part
  2. DLT makes a comeback
  3. Institutions dip a toe in the water as infrastructure build out hardens
  4. Regulatory clarity comes at last
  5. New projects are born that go on to be household names in the next decade

Colin:

  1. Numbers go… sideways?
  2. Zombie Marmot Apocalypse.
  3. Stablecoins, they’re dumb, people will realise that they’re dumb, but not before giving them all their money.
  4. Securities tokens. Another market realisation will likely be that issuing a security is more than just filing some papers to issue a security
