Quotes from the Episode:

"The futures product offered by major crypto exchange platforms are as good as the traditional futures exchanges such as CME and the like. I was amazed by the speed in which the major crypto exchanges adopted traditional financial market." [00:23:20]

"One of the biggest problem in the crypto industry is that many projects do not have any profit model - they cannot generate revenue from real business, which makes it very difficult to do proper token valuation.” [00:29:05]

"Not everyone can stay in profit in [the crypto exchange] business. Given the number of projects and the number of daily trading volumes, I believe that 80% of most exchanges today will either disappear or experience some kind of M&A” [00:35:26]
