Barak Ben-Ezer, CEO and co-founder of SFB Technologies and The SOV, sits down with Gaby Heffesse, COO of ACG Analytics, to discuss the creation of The SOV - the world’s first sovereign cryptocurrency - which is based in the Marshall Islands. Ben-Ezer talks about the challenges of integrating a cryptocurrency into the world’s sovereign currency system, his work on new developments in the underlying blockchain technology, and both the incentives and safeguards for individual privacy and crime prevention. He also considers the possibility that large countries, perhaps one day including the United States, might adopt the technology to their own currencies. Filmed on June 7, 2019 in New York. Show More
