A positive theme emerged after the FTX blowup: the survival of decentralized finance, or DeFi.

On this episode of “Money Reimagined,” Michael Casey and Sheila Warren are finally together again and are joined by Colin Butler, Polygon’s global head of institutional capital, to discuss “bringing the world to Ethereum.”

If you're unfamiliar with Polygon, it's a blockchain designed to interact directly with Ethereum to help improve some of its inefficiencies and scaling issues. Powered by Ethereum's blockchain, Polygon provides a bridge between different Ethereum-based projects, enabling developers to build scalable, user-friendly dapps without compromising security.
