Pawnshops are one of the oldest forms of lending, allowing people to turn assets they’d like to keep for the long-term into cash in the short-term - granny’s broch, those statues great uncle Thomas brought back from Greece, your Bored Ape Yacht Club NFT. OK, one of those is not the same as the others, but our definition of ‘asset’ is changing, so where do holders of digital assets go if they want to access quick cash but they don’t want to sell?

Well, maybe to Zharta, “a real-time NFT loan platform for borrowers and lenders”. Zharta allows consumers to get instant loans with their NFTs without losing ownership over them. Join me and Nuno Cortesão, their CEO and co-founder as we talk about NFT-backed lending and where digital assets might go in the future.

Zharta is found at https://www.zharta.io/ Or on LinkedIn and the other social medias (Twitter, Discord, and the ones for kids cooler than me)

Zharta was speaking at Web Summit earlier this month, and I expect they will be back at the event again next year - certainly, I will be. If you would also like to attend, I suggest you jump on this link for the last few 2 for 1 early bird tickets. You'll also hear that Nuno and I will both be at the Rugby World Cup in France, so let me know if you're heading to either event, and maybe we can grab a drink.

We also speak about traditional pawnshops, which were featured on episode 31 of this show with James Constantinou (check it out to see how unique physical assets are evaluated and used as collateral)

For my stuff, visit me on my LinkedIn page (feel free to connect), while my action-adventure novels are on Amazon, some versions even for free, and my work with ConfirmU and our gamified psychometric scores is at https://confirmu.com/ and on episode 24 of this very show https://www.howtolendmoneytostrangers.show/episodes/episode-24
