Blockchain and data science are two of the hottest technologies right now. It is not often that you hear about both of them being used in tandem. However, one company is doing exactly that. Check out this interview with Freddy Zwanzger from Anyblock Analytics. Anyblock Analytics allows anyone to analyse data from various blockchains, through their API. This is fascinating for anyone who wants to dig deep into the blockchain, and discover interesting patterns. This can be anything, from crypto trading, to decentralised finance.

Digital payments technology is forcing the financial system to evolve. Banks feel their power waning and want to regain control. In 2014, as regulators in New York were exploring ways to control Bitcoin, executives at Wall Street’s biggest banks fretted that regulating cryptocurrencies would also legitimize them — and that could threaten the finance industry.
