If there was any doubt about the mainstream acceptance of cryptocurrency, you didn’t need to look any further than the ads during this year’s Super Bowl, where three of the top five apps whose ads delivered the strongest download growth were crypto ads.

At the same time, the recent NFT boom has seen many individual NFTs sell for upwards of $1M each, with one selling for close to $70 million. There is also more discussion than ever around the future of Web 3.0 and the Metaverse.

To unravel all of these future trends, we have my friend, Simon Taylor, the co-founder and chief product officer of 11:FS on the Banking Transformed podcast.
