In the latest episode of Blockworks’ podcast “Empire,” Jason Yanowitz, co-founder of Blockworks, is joined by Roy Capital Advisors managing partner Avik Roy to talk about CBDCs versus stable coins, the private sector’s role within the economy and more.

Avik is the president of the Foundation for Research on Equal Opportunity, the policy editor at Forbes and previously served as an analyst and portfolio manager at JPMorgan, Bain Capital and other firms. 

Jason and Avik talk about:

  • Bitcoin versus CBDCs
  • Avik’s thesis on bitcoin
  • “The fiscal and entitlement crisis”

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.
