Welcome to another episode of Coppercasts!

For the 16th edition, we're joined by Jakob Palmstierna, partner at GSR – a leading global market maker for cryptocurrency spot and crypto derivative markets. In addition to overseeing the firm’s business development teams, Jakob spearheads their product development and also serves as co-head of the firms investment activities.

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 stream at the bottom of this page, or search for it in all the usual places.

In the above Show & tell segment, Jakob examines the the growth of the crypto derivatives and options markets, sharing why he believes that these markets may eventually outsize the spot markets 10 to 1 in the years to come.

In the longer audio-only conversation with CopperCasts host Tyler Kenyon, Jakob goes into detail about the expansion of the crypto derivatives market. He also shares his thoughts on derivatives within the DeFi space, the important role GSR will play in DeFi options, the future regulatory landscape and today's hurdles.
