Welcome to the A Long Time In Finance Podcast; the long view of finance, markets and money as seen by two veteran City editors, Neil Collins and Jonathan Ford. Sponsored by Briefcase.News and hosted on Reaction.

The sudden collapse of Sam Bankman Fried‘s $16bn crypto trading empire has caused even the most bored of apes to sit up and take notice. Investors in these digital currencies have exhibited an incredible stoicism, soaking up their punishment and “HODL-ing” through past crypto collapses, but could this be the end of Satoshi’s children? Neil and Jonathan talk to crypto expert Izabella Kaminska about why crypto exchanges are like 19th century prairie banks, whether the newbies will keep coming and what currencies might survive the turmoil. 

Presented by Jonathan Ford and Neil Collins, with Michael Shellenberger.

Produced and edited by Nick Hilton for Podot.
