In this video Blockworks’ “Forward Guidance” podcast host Jack Farley sat down with Copper.co’s CEO Dmitry Tokarev, at Blockworks Digital Asset Summit in London to talk about the risks in the digital assets space.

Tokarev started his career as a Quant, having graduated from Imperial College, London, with a Distinction in Risk Management and Financial Engineering. He later helped to build an asset management firm as its CTO and as a partner.
