Today, we are pleased to introduce Larry Cermak, CEO of The Block, a news and research company for the crypto industry.
In this episode, Larry discusses the significance of Tether's recent announcement to invest 15% of its profits in Bitcoin and explains how Tether generates its revenue, highlighting its position as the largest stablecoin and the potential long-term benefits of this strategy.
The conversation then shifts to the overall health of the blockchain industry, addressing regulatory concerns, compliance, and the recent slowdown. Larry touches on the various use cases in the blockchain industry, including financial products, NFTs, data storage, and layer one and layer two solutions. He expresses excitement about layer twos and roll-ups, highlighting prominent solutions like zkSync, Scroll, Polygon, and StarkNet, emphasising the potential of these technologies to scale blockchains while maintaining security and decentralisation.
Before becoming CEO, Larry served as Head of Research and Data and, previously, as VP of Research at The Block, where he played a crucial role in analysing market trends, further solidifying his reputation as a trusted authority in the crypto space. Enjoy!
