Wavelength Podcast Episode 124: Exchange Outages and Blockchain Developments

The LSE suffered a major outage this week while blockchain was very prevalent in this week's headlines.

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.

This week on the podcast, Anthony and James first look at the London Stock Exchange’s outage that resulted from “technical issues” with its auction system, and why the industry should expect more glitches—across the world—in the future. Then they turn their attention to both failed blockchain projects and projects that were announced last year that have actually gone fully live. They wrap the show up talking about the state of mainstream magazines (because we all know that Waters magazine is the finest magazine covering fintech in the world).
