In this episode, Hall welcomes Stephen Meade of MonetaPro, a B2B sell-for-credit exchange using blockchain technology to deliver better efficiency, liquidity, and trust to global trade. Stephen is an entrepreneur, executive, and founder who has built numerous successful technology companies over the past 20 years.
Stephen talks about how he entered the FinTech space and the importance of blockchain technology. Stephen advices that investors in the blockchain space should consider equity or a blended offering rather than token offerings alone - in other words, consider sacrificing some liquidity for better long-term control and value. He explains how companies are moving towards using blockchain on the funding side, while also highlighting those that are using blockchain technology as part of a product or service. In addition, he discusses some of the regulatory developments in blockchain, and how the challenges for startups remain fundamentally the same - acquiring customers and raising capital. Finally, Stephen expands on the role of MonetaPro, how they fit into the FinTech space, and where they are going from there.
