ICOs, tokens and the future of money

Will Beeson and Dave Birch discuss tokens, ICOs and the future of money.

We’re thrilled to be joined by acclaimed author Dave Birch, back on Rebank for round two (Dave previously joined us to explore developments in digital identity).

Dave is an internationally recognised thought leader in digital money and digital identity. He has been named one of the global top 15 best sources of business information by Wired magazine, one of the top 10 most influential voices in banking by The Financial Brand, one of the top 10 Twitter accounts for innovators by PR Daily, and one of the top three most influential people in London’s fintech community by City A.M. He is also a fellow contributor on BankNXT.

Dave is perhaps Europe’s most influential commentator on emerging payments and adjacent technologies, including digital identity, blockchain and privacy.

Dave recently published a new book, Before Babylon, Beyond Bitcoin, which looks at money as a concept and the ways it may evolve. Today, we look at the current crypto boom and what it’s telling us about the future of money and economies.

You can listen to more episodes of Rebank, and other fintech shows, on the BankNXT podcast page. Enjoy!
