MONEY REIMAGINED: How Should a Blockchain Project Build in the Midst of this Crypto Winter?

This episode is sponsored by Circle and NEAR.

In the attempt to contain the inflationary outbreak in the U.S. economy, the Federal Reserve’s monetary tightening by hiking interest rates will continue for some time. Recently, the U.S. central bank’s chair, Jerome Powell, made it clear that our present crypto winter was here to stay. 

However, this is a good time for development in the crypto space. 

On this episode of “Money Reimagined,” hosts Michael Casey and Sheila Warren  speak with Near Foundation’s CEO, Marieke Flament.

The Near Foundation is committed to expanding its ecosystem of developers and project leads working on top of the Near blockchain. Its proof-of-stake blockchain has introduced a number of the scaling solutions that Ethereum developers have been working on for years. And there is great encouragement around decentralized finance (DeFi) development.
