Crypto as an asset class is growing quickly with many promising projects in a variety of applications, but with rapid progress comes challenges. Due to price volatility, crypto assets can’t effectively function as a medium of exchange or in token applications. This volatility further limits crypto as a store of value relative to other digital or traditional assets. Until these challenges are addressed, the blockchain space cannot achieve scale. MARKET Protocol believes that derivatives are the answer to fighting volatility.
At Voice of Blockchain 2018, we sat down with Seth Rubin, CEO and Cofounder of MARKET Protocol. Seth has been a derivatives trader since 2005. He has grown and managed multiple algorithmic trading desks, operated as a registered market maker and participated in numerous product launches. He has been involved in the cryptocurrency space since 2015.
Voice of Blockchain took place on August 24th and 25th. Crypto enthusiasts from all across Chicago and the world gathered at Navy Pier to discuss blockchain and cryptocurrencies. The Chicago Blockchain Project brought together Leaders, Voices, and Builders of all kinds for exhibits, speakers and more.
