[Digital Today Reporter Chi-Gyu Hwang] As the price of Bitcoin exceeds $60,000, the heat for blockchain and virtual assets (cryptocurrency) is hotter than ever.
As the prices of major cryptocurrencies, including bitcoin, increase to unexpected levels, many people who are active in the cryptocurrency field are surprised. Applications that lead the growth of cryptocurrency, such as decentralized finance (DeFi), are also an issue.
With rising prices and interest, concerns about the bubble are also growing. This is especially true among those who remember the course that the blockchain wind broke out in 2017 and then turned off. There are still many pointed out that the price is at the center of the issue rather than the infrastructure and ecosystem that supports cryptocurrency, and the plate is turning around’don’t ask investment’.
Taking this into consideration, Digital Today, which stands for the first media in the digital first era, will start on the 18th, a YouTube real-time broadcast’Kasoo’ (a crypto anarchist’s direct chat chat room), which examines trends and issues in the cryptocurrency and blockchain field from various perspectives besides price. .
QASOO, which is produced with the aim of broadcasting once a week at 8 pm every Thursday evening, is hosted by Joonghyuk Jang of Atomix Lab, a blockchain technology specialist, and Chigyu Hwang of Digital Today.
Qasu is focused on sharing the opinions of experts in the field on what problems blockchain and cryptocurrency can solve across the economy and society. After sharing the news that caught our attention for a week with the opening, the conversation is focused on one of the latest issues.
Rather than the price of cryptocurrency, they share stories about the elements that make up cryptocurrency, potential as an ecosystem, various controversies and issues, as well as a perspective on risks. The goal is to look at the present and future of cryptocurrency calmly without being excited.
The first topic is dealing with non-replaceable tokens (NFTs), which have recently received high attention both at home and abroad. Discuss where the NFT value arises, what are the possibilities, limitations, and risks in recent NFT trends. Reporter Hwang Chi-gyu asks various questions and director Jang Jung-hyuk answers them.
In the future, Qasu will also invite people from the field of blockchain and cryptocurrency to share various stories about blockchain and cryptocurrency.
Qasu will be partially edited after real-time broadcast and shared again through Digital Today’s YouTube channel.
