4:40 pm
transformative technology to hit finance possibly ever and there's such a huge amount of potential in digital assets and yet most of the noise and fury at the moment in the space is highly speculative a lot of scam artists promising instant millions and riches and this is a massive distraction firm the promise of digital asset technology. we are very committed to the future sort of institutional institutionalization of plot change technology as it truly transforms financial markets and this can only happen hand in hand with regulators and hand in hand with consumer and investor protection and so we started a conversation because the. the space was still. very open in terms of regulations and
4:41 pm
a lot of people were taking advantage of that and i wanted to make sure that we had an offering the was in line with base in line with regulations and protected to the people who are going to participate in the space people do need to be careful out there and be careful where you invest your money but you know it makes me think alex that. there is all this distrust in general in the block chain and digital economy about the stinking government and sort of a libertarian view but i view you a mega one and others in this space as really the professionalization in the maturation of the digital economy that you do need to have certain sideboard certain basic rules of the road now on your panel today where you really were the standout person here in davos you talked about how to build the financial future how you build financial systems going forward and explain what the main takeaways
4:42 pm
were there what were your messages today to the audience. so it was a great conversation i was fortunate to be with some of the luminaries in the space including joe lubin who is the co-founder of the theory i'm the founder of consensus who have some forty or fifty different projects going at the moment each of which is going to significantly disrupt a different industry or a different area of people's life so. you know we the conversation ranged from the role of block chain in banking beyond banks and brief an actual services to the world's financial service deserts and in the same way the mobile to laugh anie can leapfrog through landlines in parts of the world it's quite possible that the decentralized financial system sort of internet three
4:43 pm
point zero sitting sitting on mobile devices is going to bring sophisticated banking services to part of the world currently don't even have access to simple bank accounts so what we owe it blocked chain right now is kind of roughly where we were with the internet in the late ninety's so it was pretty obvious by then that you could do things like record a video on your computer and send it to somebody you could created these are things which we forget were radical only a couple decades ago create a piece of text send it to everybody in the world without having to photocopy the thing and fedex it and these things were clearly transformative but it was hard to actually predict facebook or google back in one thousand nine hundred five one six there were pets dot com and a million other things so we're at
4:44 pm
a similar kind of. place in block chain. where we are instead of disrupting sort of the world of media with disrupting the world value and transactions of value it is all of us that there is this profound a change coming as there was in that world. where half an inflection point or actually a couple of inflection points in the digital asset story we have this kind of future that we're heading towards where. you know everything is tokenized and you know your self driving car is going to be negotiating with a eyeball on the market to buy right of way to get into the fost lane on the freeway this sort of saif i stuff is maybe five ten years away from us at this pace of change right now we just at the point where the market infrastructure
4:45 pm
is starting to get solid enough to be attracting major institutions into the space the. we've seen in the last year. there was a flash crash on one of the major exchanges where the price of ether dropped from three hundred dollars down to ten cents in the space of fifteen seconds we've seen exchanges including that fanatics the the most the largest most liquid exchange got hacked to this day on current prices they've been over twelve billion dollars stolen firm crypto exchanges which if you look at the list of heists in history that's pretty high up on the list so there's clear and there's . massive fragmentation in the market it's very hard to get transparency huge job persisting in the market so you you've got
4:46 pm
a market which is suddenly getting a lot of attention major players in zero two billion dollars of institutional capital flowed in the last few months and the infrastructure is still a mess and so our job is essentially to mid-wife the. mainstreaming of this asset class in a way which enables it to not blow up and pop because you know the wave the lack of liquidity in fragmentation comes months of volatility and did enables you know pension funds institutions to lend to the space in a way that is safe and in a way that is aligned with their fiduciary responsibilities and just tell me from your perspective for omega one in particular is it your goal to have liquidity not
4:47 pm
just your own liquidity at omega one as an exchange but then too i think the word you use is harvest liquidity from veriest a digital currency exchanges around the world so ultimately you'll have unparalleled liquidity which will create a better price discovery that is better actual prices for investors and that's how it's going to work yes so the way i make a one works is exactly that we're going to be. liquidity pull ourselves for all of the members on a major one will be a a hybrid decentralized exchange and say well those words man and then it but if someone comes to trade as a member on our exchange and they don't find matching liquidity in the exchange immediately.
