In today’s episode of The Unstoppable Podcast, we’re talking to George Harrap. George is the Co-Founder of Step Finance, the front page of Solana. George has over a decade of experience in crypto and DeFi and is here to share what he knows.
We talk about how crypto has evolved over the 11 years George has worked with it and how many of the central narratives and trends have changed over time, like the shift from crypto as primarily a payment system to crypto as the basis for applications.
George talks about crypto adoption around the world, the different use cases, and why different economies use the technology in different ways. He also shares some frameworks and mental models for thinking about crypto during downtimes, and some of the most exciting innovations he’s seen in the past year.
We discuss user experience, how to make DeFi more accessible to the masses, how Step Finance works, and why it’s needed. Why did George and his team choose to focus on Solana over other blockchains? Finally, we talk about the importance of data in Web3 and how to use it ethically and productively.
