What Institutions Need to Know about Digital Assets in a Post FTX World?

December 8, 2022

In episode 49, we explore the future of digital asset technology in a post FTX world. Our guests, Mark Garabedian from Wellington Capital Management and Jeremy Lai from TD Securities, take us on a journey of discovery on what went wrong with FTX including differentiating decentralized from centralized finance and share their thoughts on the comments of FTX's former CEO, Sam Bankman-Fried during his recent apology tour. Along the way, Jeremy and Mark explain the institutional use cases of distributed ledger technology in capital markets and how far along the infrastructure providers are, solving table stakes issues such as KYC, AML and cyber risk. Mark finishes with a review of his peer group on the buy side, indicating that Wellington is not alone in its support for digital ledger technology and its potential to change the infrastructure of global capital markets.
