Featuring Sidney Powell and Ben Whitby

Published on: May 12th, 2022 • Duration: 45 minutes

Crypto capital markets platform Maple Finance seeks to serve growing and innovative companies that are in need of capital but can’t get it from traditional lenders. It offers undercollateralized lending infrastructure for institutional lenders and corporate borrowers. Co-founder and CEO Sidney Powell joins Ben Whitby, who oversees regulatory affairs at Qredo, to explain how to use blockchain to aggregate capital and to program the distribution and use of money. It’s basically an alternative to traditional technology like the Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunications (SWIFT) system. Maple’s platform is one of only a few DeFi lending protocols that conforms with required Know Your Customer/Anti-Money Laundering (KYC/AML) standards, a key feature that may attract more institutional attention.
