About the Show
The global economy is experiencing unprecedented challenges and change.

As we face this change, a new global movement is building around the promise of digital currencies and blockchains — forming a new architecture for the global economy and creating new opportunities for companies everywhere. The Money Movement explores and chronicles the issues and ideas driving this brave new world of digital money.
Episode 1: The Global Macro View, Blockchain 101 and the Stablecoin Thesis
This week, Jeremy Allaire hosts a trio of guests to set the stage and context for The Money Movement.
Legendary Wall Street veteran, digital currency bull and Galaxy Digital CEO Michael Novogratz kicks off the show to talk Global Macro — what does the global economic crisis mean, how should business leaders understand what's happening in global markets and the economy and why is this the catalyst for mainstream adoption of digital currency?
Next up, Professor Kevin Werbach of the Wharton School of Business, author of The Blockchain and the New Architecture of Trust, renowned internet industry analyst and tech policy advisor for the Obama Administration as well as a key player in the early commercialization of the internet while working at the FCC. Kevin and Jeremy will talk Blockchain 101 — why is this such a revolutionary technology, and why now more than ever is a "new architecture of trust" needed for business.
Finally, crypto fund guru Kyle Samani of Multicoin Capital will join the show to discuss The Stablecoin Thesis — why are stablecoins surging now, what's the big deal, and what might happen with stablecoins such as USDC and Libra in the coming months and years.
