Vineeth, and I'll be teaching you the fundamentals of Cryptocurrency & DeFi

I started when I dropped out of school to be an early employee at Paxos, the first regulated crypto currency exchange in the United States. It was the early days of crypto so a lot of the infrastructure that we have come to be accustomed to didn't exist. I helped them build out their OTC desk and architect solutions for financial institutions that were interested in implementing blockchain solutions including their dollar and Gold backed stable coins.

From double to triple entry bookkeeping

In 2008 Bitcoin introduced the concept of triple entry bookkeeping where instead of the ledger being maintained by trusted 3rd parties the ledger is open source and transactions are validated by the network itself.

In today's world what can you prove that you own? Your bank tells you how much money you have, your stocks and house are registered in street names. Outside your physical possessions crypto is one of the few things that you are in control of and no one can restrict you from moving your assets.
