Welcome to another episode of CopperCasts. Our guest for the 22nd edition is Fadi Aboualfa.

Fadi is well-known in crypto circles as the founder of Diar, a (now retired) newsletter providing market intelligence for the digital asset sector. Since 2021, Fadi has served as the research lead here at Copper, delivering detailed analysis of the crypto market to Copper’s institutional clients via various reports: the monthly Analyst Retrospective, In-Depth, Op-Ed and the Technical Analysis series.

CopperCasts are split into two parts. The first is a short (2min) video in which our guest shares with us something they find unusual or inspiring about the digital asset space. The second half is a traditional audio-only podcast, which you can search for in all the usual places.

In this wide-ranging conversation with host, Tyler Kenyon, Fadi details the origins of his interest in crypto, the industry's future in politics, and thoughts on how public blockchains can support a robust, secure and transparent digital economy.

Don't forget to check out Fadi's Show & Tell on our Youtube channel. Here, he explains that despite institutions spending $300bn+ annually to combat financial crimes, only 0.1% of criminal funds are recovered because of these anti-money laundering measures. Perhaps, though, better solutions exist?
