On this week’s episode of Market Talks, Cointelegraph welcomed Bud White, Chief Product Officer and Co-Founder of Tacen, a US-based software company developing compliance software for a well-curated crypto space.

To kick things off, we get to know White a little better and find out about his background and what drew him to space. We also find out what the cryptocurrency market is most looking forward to this year and how 2023 will differ from 2022.

The big question on everyone’s mind is what is the catalyst bringing institutional investors back into the cryptocurrency markets, and how can they avoid the same risks that crippled them before? Are regulations the answer?

Several cryptocurrency exchanges have come under regulatory fire recently. It may only be a matter of time before Binance faces some confrontation from high level enforcement agencies. With that in mind, we ask White what trends he sees emerging with centralized exchanges in the near future.

We delve into the topic of regulation and what role it should play in crypto, especially on centralized exchanges and decentralized finance (DeFi).
