DEBNK: Building Global Trustless Peer Banking on Top of Bitcoin


Topics

My guests in this episode are Patrik Tjokorda, Josef Tětek and Tomas Marada, we met at the Hackers Congress in Prague. They are working on a project called DEBNK. Their goal is to build global peer banking on top of the bitcoin settlement layer. This trustless third layer on top of bitcoin will be able to store different assets and can make stablecoins obsolete. We talk about how this will be implemented, the use cases they see and about volatility and price discovery in bitcoin, the block subsidy, the halving and bitcoin in the Czech Republic. At the moment the development team is looking for grants to bootstrap the MVP, the minimal viable product. Patrik and Tomas just launched a bitcoin quant fund www.hedge.capital, that will also serve as funding vehicle for DEBNK later on.
