In the latest episode of Blockworks’ podcast “Empire,” Jason Yanowitz, co-founder of Blockworks, is joined by Sergey Nazarov, the co-founder of Chainlink, a decentralized oracle network provider for advanced smart contracts.

Sergey and Jason discuss hybrid smart contracts, oracle networks, DeFi’s total addressable market, how current business models will be forced to adapt and the challenges of developing Chainlink.

They also discuss:

  • Why DeFi is better than CeFi
  • If an inflection point has come

Check out what they had to say in the video below. 👇

On “Empire,” once a week, Jason interviews individuals that have built the crypto industry to talk about their struggles, bold moves and tough decisions. For any NPR or Guy Raz fans out there, you can think of “Empire” like a “How I Built This” for the bitcoin and crypto industry.

Episodes are released every Thursday morning.
