The possibilities that digital currencies create with payments, ledgers, contracts, and the transparency to rebuild trust are momentous. On the Breaking Banks podcast today, I talk to those who dare to reimagine how banks and payments interact, who the middle man should really be, or if a middle man is needed at all.
First, we have Ben Milne, CEO and founder of Dwolla, a revolutionary company that creates real-time payments and imagines a world without credit cards (or their interest or fees). Then Vitalik Buterin of Ethereum and Simon Taylor of Barclays join me to talk about the Ethereum Project. Dave Birch also drops into the studio!
