For 300 years, people traded products like gold, oil, and stocks on exchanges using open outcry: swift hand gestures and competing voices shouting “buy” and “sell” in crammed, boisterous trading pits.
With the advent of electronic trading, that 300-year practice faded away within 20 years. But what took 20 years is already being transformed. We have now entered a world of digital trading: the peer-to-peer transmission of value that needs no financial intermediary, no central bank, no traditional currency. Money can be programmed. Contracts can self-execute. Assets can be tokenized. What does this mean for the future of finance, our institutions, our markets and ourselves?
OpenOutCrypto highlights the most relevant trends in the fast-moving world of digital assets and blockchain. It unearths the sometimes murky world of cryptocurrencies to a broader audience of investors, asset managers and policymakers, separating the signal from the noise to uncover what matters most.
Hosted by Rumi Morales and Colleen Sullivan, who’s DNA is in finance, law, and institutional investing, OpenOutCrypto translates the crypto markets in ways a general audience can understand. Forgoing hype, OpenOutCrypto provides honest assessments and analysis for when tomorrow’s markets are repeating the past or truly revealing something new.
