In the latest episode of Blockworks’ podcast “Empire,” Jason Yanowitz and Michael Ippolito, co founders of Blockworks, sit down together for the first time in years to talk about the seven biggest trends in crypto today, including:

  • ETH/BTC “flippening”
  • Growth of staked ETH
  • RIAs allocated to bitcoin
  • Alts cease trading just like “high beta bitcoin”
  • Exchange consolidation
  • Under collateralized lending as the next big thing
  • DAOs emerging as the “End of 2021 bull run” narrative

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.
