Moneyweb Live Session: Crypto arbitrage’s role in an alternative investment strategy

This Moneyweb Live Session was livestreamed on Wednesday, July 13 at 11:00.

Crypto prices may be crashing but crypto arbitrage remains relatively unaffected. Arbitrage involves buying cryptos on one exchange and selling them on another for a higher price.

In this special live session, we separated fact from fiction on crypto arbitrage and discussed whether it has any place in an alternative investment strategy. Moneyweb’s Ciaran Ryan was joined by Future Forex CEO Harry Scherzer, Dooya co-founder Kyle Dowie and Currency Hub co-founder Andrew Ludwig.
