Robinhood CEO Vlad Tenev and Paxos CEO Charles Cascarilla on How to Avoid Another GameStop

In this discussion I moderated for Paxos, Robinhood CEO Vlad Tenev and Paxos CEO Charles Cascarilla discuss GameStop, the broken traditional financial infrastructure, and how blockchain technology may change the future of settlements. Show highlights:

  • why Robinhood stopped trading on GameStop and AMC stock earlier this year
  • what both Charles and Vlad think the feasibility of T+0 settlements versus Citadel’s and the DTCC’s aim of T+1 settlements
  • how the GameStop scenario would have been different in a T+0 environment
  • what it would look like if certain markets used T+0 settlements while others still settled on T+1
  • why Robinhood decided to add crypto back in early 2018
  • how Robinhood’s crypto operations work on the back end
  • why Robinhood does not allow users to move crypto off-platform
  • whether securities trading or crypto will be a larger portion of both Paxos’ and Robinhood’s business model
  • what Paxos and Robinhood have planned for the near future
