Around the Globe to Understand Crypto, with Zeke Faux

In this episode of “Financial Crime Matters,” Kieran Beer talks with Zeke Faux, author of the critically acclaimed “Number Go Up,” a comprehensive look at cryptocurrency, decentralized finance and non-fungible tokens (NFTs).

Faux, an investigative reporter for Bloomberg Businessweek and Bloomberg News, discusses the trek he undertook to understand the boom and sometimes bust of various blockchain offerings. It was a journey that included a New York harbor NFT “ApeFest,” time in the Philippines with erstwhile Axis Infinity gamers who lost everything, a visit to a hotel in Cambodia attached to a “pig butchering” operation, and finally, a marathon interview with Sam Bankman-Fried in the Bahamas days before his arrest.
