58-The Frontier of Dai, With Mariano Conti

Mariano Conti is an Argentine developer for MakerDAO. He works as the head of Oracles for the MakerDAO system, and receives his paycheck in Dai.

Mariano takes David and Christian though his experiences using crypto out of necessity, rather than speculation. David and Christian ask Mariano to compare using Bitcoin vs using Dai as a money for his own personal finances. We also discuss how Mariano leverages Ethereum applications such as DYDX to earn interest on his capital.
