Our AMA with Peter and Jack will start on Wednesday 25th January at 9am PST - 12pm EST - 5pm GMT and run asynchronously in the AMA slack channel for 24 hours.

In Peter and Jack’s episode with Cody, they cover:

  • Policy tailwinds for CDR

  • The categories and methodologies for CDR tech

  • Challenges faced along the commercial adoption process, and speed bumps that CDR will encounter as it scales (including fraud and false claims)

  • ....and more!
