Show Notes

On this month’s episode of Integra Talks: David Rosa, Co-founder and CEO at Neat, discusses the role of the US$ in global commerce with Christiaan Kaptein, Partner at Integra Partners.

David explains why a lot of global trade settle in US$, the difference between dollars and eurodollars, and why it is cheapest and fastest to settle USD in Singapore with a handwritten cheque. We also explore what the future might hold, will the world move to accept more global currencies for trade and how does blockchain, and Central Bank Digital Currencies relate to this all?
