On this episode of The Scoop, Ethereum 2.0 developer and Prysmatic Labs founder Preston Van Loon and Joe Sticco joined Frank Chaparro to discuss their project Cryptex.

Already, the firm has lined up 500 users for its testnet, including a number of liquidity providers in the US. The team expects to launch a new token, called TCAP in the next few weeks. Van Loon and Sticco broke down how the project will offer investors a way to buy the entire crypto market, how DeFi can offer an alternative to indexes popular on Wall Street, and the scaling solutions being explored in Ethereum.
