Contentious cryptocurrencies

Tuesday 28 February 2023

2022 was a tumultuous year for cryptocurrencies. One of the world's largest crypto exchanges, FTX, collapsed, filing for bankruptcy in November – and it wasn’t the only casualty, as other exchanges as well as crypto hedge funds also went under during the year. In this Global Insight podcast, we question whether the crypto industry needs greater regulation, or greater enforcement of regulation – or perhaps both.

Helping to make sense of the issues are:

  • David Gerard, a financial journalist and crypto sceptic;
  • Andrew Jacobson, Head of Legal at 21Shares, an issuer of cryptocurrency exchange-traded products; and
  • Lee Reiners, Policy Director at the Duke Financial Economics Center and a lecturing fellow at Duke Law.
