Simon and Colin are back this week to talk about the latest and greatest news in blockchain, including: Brazilian bank, Tezos and $1 Billion, IBM tries to make paper the past, and Swiss STO's! First up, the pair look at how the Swiss central bank was asked to issue stock exchange digital currency. This is so that the cryptocurrency could be used to settle payments on the Swiss Stock exchange's new digital securities trading platform. The two discuss whether this is really a stable coin or just tokenised central bank money, whether it's a more long term play or more focused on PR, and loads more! (1:07) Next up, Simon and Colin talk about the Banco BTG Pactual SA, Latin America’s biggest standalone investment bank, which has teamed up with Dubai asset manager Dalma Capital to sell more than $1 billion worth of so-called security tokens. BTG Partner Andre Portilho explained that capital markets still have infrastructure that was designed for an analog, local world. He then went on to say it's their responsibility to understand and lead the implementation of new technologies which could change the market.
