Our 7th show has three more great panelists, each with a unique perspective on stablecoins. Jason Jones was previously at Consensys before joining Centrifuge, which is using real world assets (e.g. invoices) as collateral to create stablecoins. Xiaohan Zhu is CEO of Meter.io, a unique hybrid POW/POS consensus protocol to create a stablecoin based on the value of electricity (10 kilowatt-hours). Tom Meredith is the CEO of BitMinutes, which creates country specific stablecoins via prepaid mobile phone minutes.

Each episode starts with the panelists giving a 10 minute overview presentations. The rest of the show features audience Q&A where we open up the audio & video for audience members to ask questions and comment, creating a vibrant environment for discussion, education, and debate.
