Since the collapse of the cryptocurrency exchange FTX - a centralised exchange or CEX - the popularity of decentralised exchanges, or DEXs, such as Uniswap or Orca, has soared.

But which type of platform will win in the battle for crypto trading? What are the pros and cons of the different types of platform? And will it just be cryptos being traded in the future or other financial assets like real estate?

This episode will explore the merits of CEX and DEX and seek to answer the central question - which one is safest to use?

CEXs have more regulation around them, but DEXs are supposedly more secure thanks to smart contracts.

Join host Natasha de Teran as she explores the topic with Olga Klein, of the Gillmore Centre for Financial Technology, and Amit Chaudhary, former Head of DeFi Research at Polygon and now Co-founder of web 3.0 product developer ChainSolid Labs.
