Waters Wavelength Podcast Episode 106: Blockchain on the Buy Side; the Importance of Coding

Anthony and James examine a new report about how the buy side is lagging behind when it comes to blockchain development, and how K-12 schools are lagging when it comes to teaching coding.

Anthony Malakian, US editor of Waters, and James Rundle, news editor of Waters, record a weekly podcast touching on the biggest stories in financial technology.

Anthony and James examine a new report about how the buy side is lagging behind when it comes to blockchain development, and how K-12 education is lagging when it comes to teaching coding.

2:30 A new report takes a deep-dive examination of distributed-ledger technology (DLT) development on the buy side. 

5:00 Hasn’t the sell side always taken the reins when it comes to new, industry-wide technologies? For example: cloud. Why should the buy side be proactive when it comes to DLT?
