Sell-Side Technology deputy editor Dan DeFrancesco and WatersTechnology US editor Anthony Malakian record a weekly podcast touching on the biggest stories in financial technology.

Dan, Anthony and Emilia discuss their three-part series looking at the state of blockchain and distributed-ledger technologies in financial services. Anthony first explains the basis for the special report (3:30). The group then discusses part one (6:50), which looks at banks' adoption of digital currencies; part two (14:45), which looks at the money backing blockchain firms; and part three (20:15), which looks to debunk the hype around blockchain. The trio also discusses why blockchain is so attractive to financial services (28:00). Finally, they wrap things up talking about the second presidential debate (34:15).
