Alex travelled down south last weekend to Texas’ capital, Austin, for the Consensus 2023 conference, one of the largest, longest-tenured, and most influential gatherings across the crypto ecosystem and community. Hearing from and speaking to investors, developers, and industry builders, Alex shares his observations and experiences from his three days on the ground. With the current macroeconomic environment of rising interest rates and an unfolding banking crisis, Andrew provides his take on crypto’s role and the impact such influences will have on it. Despite regulatory crackdown within American borders, Coinbase has launched a perps exchange based out of Bermuda, offering non-U.S. traders 5x leverage with perpetual futures.
