Things are heating up in the crypto regulation space here in Australia. The Labor government has spoken up about some of its plans, particularly in relation to token mapping.

So in this episode Tegan and Tim bring in a special expert guest, Lisa Wade - the CEO of DigitalX. Having been in the finance industry for decades, Wade has fantastic insight into the topic and what we may see unfold in the sector in the coming years.

And at the top of the episode we unpack the idea of decentralised identity: a world where you are in control of your data and personal information rather than trusting it with third parties.
