S2:E6 Valuing a Social Computer with Ash and Danny from Archetype
This week on Cross-Chain Examination, we’re taking a break from our usual deep-dives and turning our attention to current events in the industry with Ash and Danny from the Archetype team. Over the course of the past week, we have watched FTX collapse, sending the entire crypto market into freefall.
At the time of this recording (11/11/22), much of the situation is still unfolding. We do our best to lay out the facts around FTX, Alameda, SBF and co, and the misappropriation of user funds. We recap everything we know so far and discuss the unfortunately long list of potential repercussions before touching on some silver linings.
In light of the current market conditions, we turn the conversation to Archetype’s thesis around Ethereum. We measure the ongoing risks and call out what we’re keeping an eye on as the space moves forward. We also discuss Ethereum's role not just as a financial ledger, but a global, social computer. At the end of the day, we’re still bullish.
