In this episode of Ledger Cast, Derek and I discuss his trip to Consensus -- but primarily in the context of our takeaways based on the event, including themes that stood out and themes that didn't stand out.

Here's the YouTube version:

We ended up digging more into security tokens and stable coins than I expected at the beginning of the show, but I think both are themes we'll see the rest of 2018 and into 2019. We also discussed EOS and their mainnet launch, along with an effort to incentivize dApp development through a massive fund, and how that compares to the dominance in the landscape through Ethereum.
