Episode: #11 May 11, 2020 Your savings account, your high-yield bank deposits, a CD. Can we replace these bank functions with a protocol?  Compound seems to think so. Compound is a two-sized money robot that provides borrowing and lending to create something new: interest. Learn what it does, why it's powerful, and how it's evolving as we talk with Robert Leshner.
