||CleanShapeShift's Anonymous COO on Operating One Of Crypto's Largest Exchanges - 0009||My guest today is a guy named "Jon." Jon wouldn’t tell me his last name or where he’s located. Jon isn't a mysterious figure I met on an underground Telegram pump-and-dump group or a darknet market operator. To the contrary, he's the COO of one of the largest cryptocurrency exchanges in the world: ShapeShift.io. Over time, ShapeShift is becoming somewhat of a crypto conglomerate. They recently purchased Hardware wallet maker KeepKey. They also run the pricing website CoinCap and the do-it-yourself index fund creation tool, Prism (currently in private beta). In this episode, I wanted to speak with the person in charge of end-to-end operations at ShapeShift. This conversation yields an inside look at one of the cryosphere's most influential companies. Topics include: The thesis that ties together ShapeShift's products, brands, and websites.How ShapeShift is similar to decentralized exchanges, and how it’s different.ShapeShift’s product for creating your own crypto hedge fund, called Prism.The mechanics of how Prism works, and how Prism creates Ethereum-based smart contracts.What ShapeShift's organizational structure looks like.Why people who run exchanges tend to stay out of the public eye.ShapeShift’s relationship with other exchange operatorsHow running a non-custodial exchange differs from running a custodial exchange.Why cryptocurrency exchanges get a bad rap.||2/13/2018||Free||View in iTunes|

||Clean0001 - Introducing Flippening: For Crypto Investors||Welcome to the very first episode of Flippening. This podcast is for a new class of investors who were not part of the financial services world before bitcoin, but came into the finance space because of their passion for crypto assets and distributed ledger technology. As part of the movement to recreate the world’s financial system from the ground up, these folks are starting hedge funds, creating financial products, addressing the custodianship problem, starting liquidity businesses, starting decentralized crypto exchanges, etc. Each week we discuss the cryptocurrency economy, new investment strategies for maximizing returns, and stories from the front lines of financial disruption. In the upcoming episodes of Flippening, we’ll be having conversations with the creators of the new financial reality. The ensuing episodes will feature conversations with financial revolutionaries, economic heretics, crypto anarchists, and people who just think a few things could be done a bit better.
