Intelligence Squared Crypto:
Debates Within Cryptocurrency

In an era of digital disruption and post-pandemic promise the need to debate our economic future has never been more pressing. At the heart of the conversation is the rise of cryptocurrency. In this debate series from Intelligence Squared we heard from leaders in the world of cryptocurrency, mainstream economics and traditional finance about the future of crypto and the trends changing the world of money.

Issues debated included the environmental impact of crypto, Bitcoin’s potential threat to the primacy of the U.S dollar and whether cryptocurrencies can ‘bank the unbanked’ in the Global South. Please see below for links to the video and podcast of each event.
