Fintech Family Hour is hosted by Zach Anderson Pettet who also works as Director of Content for Money20/20 USA. FFH isn’t the average business podcast. It’s like if Johnny Carson, Oprah, and Mike Bloomberg fell in love and made a fintech media property entertainment baby. We nerd out and we have fun doing it! Fintech Family Hour is brought to you exclusively by FS Vector

This is a special episode that was initially recorded for Smart Friends with Eric Jorgenson. The conversation covered enough financial topics that it felt irresponsible not to share it here as well. Simply irresponsible. Thanks, Eric! Check out Smart Friends.

Omar ElNaggar is a hedge fund quant and data nerd. He is the founder and CEO of Weavechain. Weavechain is a platform that gives enterprise data new web3 superpowers. The concepts discussed here-in could put an end to fraud as we know it today.
