In this week’s episode of Market Talks, Cointelegraph welcomes Budd White, chief product officer and co-founder of Tacen — a United States-based software company developing compliance software for a well-regulated crypto space. To kick things off, we get to know White a little better and find out his background and what drew him to the space. We also find out what he’s looking forward to the most this year in the crypto market and how 2023 is going to differ from 2022. The big question on everyone’s minds is What will be the catalyst that brings institutional investors back into the crypto markets, and how can they avoid the same risks that crippled them before? Are regulations the answer? Several cryptocurrency exchanges have come under regulatory fire recently. It might only be a matter of time before Binance gets some confrontation from high-level enforcement agencies. Keeping this in mind, we ask White what trends he sees emerging with centralized exchanges in the near future. We dive into the topic of regulation and what role it should play in crypto, especially within centralized exchanges and decentralized finance (DeFi). Got an idea for a nonfungible token project but no experience in programming, smart contracts or anything related to crypto? Don’t worry, we ask White what the best way to launch your collection on OpenSea safely is. There might be a pro tip in there for you as well, so make sure you’re paying attention. Make sure to stay tuned until the end to get all of these insights and more. Cointelegraph will also be taking your questions and comments throughout the show, so be sure to have them ready to go.
