E23 - Will Remor on Stablecoins

Will Remor is a former quantitative risk analysist from traditional banking that got into stablecoins via the maker DAI project. He's consulted on a number of finance, stablecoin, and defi protocols, including New Zealand's newest stablecoin the NZDD, and has been involved with asset tokenization (or RWAs) from the early days. In this conversation Will takes us through some of the key differences between USDC, Tether, and DAI. We talk about some of the prominent depegging events affecting USDC when Silicon Valley Bank collapsed and who remembers 20% yield in Anchor and the Terra-Luna death spiral.
