The Last Mile DeFi podcast focuses on the opportunity for DeFi to empower underbanked communities in the global south, strategies for expanding the practical use of cryptocurrency in emerging economies, and how Web3 companies and protocols can drive the onboarding of the next billion people into the space.
In the episode, Jackie and Marcus begin by discussing her professional journey from Google, Twitter, and Spotify, to being drawn to the Celo ecosystem and the founding of Valora.
