Episode 56 β€’ 🏧 Crypto Banks + Uber’s Genius Financial Services Move

We take an irreverent look at the last fortnight of news, including a crypto bank which recently floated on the NYSE, and Her Majesty’s take on cryptocurrency.

There’s also a discussion on two interesting pieces about Uber β€” one a genius financial services move; the other discussing Uber’s self-driving car SNAFU.

4/10 would listen again.
