      Agreed, Sebastian has some room to improve as an interviewer, good energy but maybe prepare some more succinct and precise questions? Talk a little less? When interviewing someone like Robert you don't really need to say that much... Looking for more deep dives on defi projects.

    I assume he was referring to companies like Coinbase etc that will move into this market. One advantage is that with a big name behind a blockchain like Coinbase it will create piece of mind so DeFi needs some kind of insurance to ensure users that in the even if of a hack etc customers have piece of mind. If RV can speak to someone on the future of insurance on custody that would be awesome.
