Episode 24 of CopperCasts comes to you from the Big Apple!

Tyler sat down with Mirza Uddin, Head of Business Development at Injective Labs – the first universal DeFi protocol for cross-chain derivatives trading.

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 the audio-only conversation, Mirza talks about his transition from the venture capital industry into the crypto space, discussing many of the exciting things that Injective Labs are working on. He also describes the key driving factors behind DeFi, and what it’ll take to draw TradFi institutions to the ecosystem.

You can check out Mirza's Show & Tell segment on our YouTube page, where he discusses the growth and maturation of the crypto derivatives market. He explains that as more institutions come on board, crypto derivatives will soon eclipse the spot market – as in traditional finance. Most interestingly, Mirza adds that a lot of the derivatives volume is now is moving away from CEXs and into DEXs.
