Bringing the capabilities of decentralized finance to the world of Bitcoin is BitGo's mission. Kia Mosayeri, product manager at BitGo, joins to discuss exciting developments. Mosayeri believes the core thesis of DeFi is important and bringing it to Bitcoin, the largest market cap cryptocurrency, can assist in the mission. He addresses concerns by Bitcoin maximalists that BitGo comprises the security of Bitcoin by utilizing the Ethereum chain.
