Each week we ask the buidlers in the blockchain and cryptocurrency sector for their thoughts on the industry and we throw in a few random zingers to keep them on their toes!

This week our 6 Questions go to Sheila Warren, head of blockchain and DLT at the World Economic Forum.

Sheila serves on the executive committee of the World Economic Forum and the leadership team of its Centre for the Fourth Industrial Revolution, working with public-, private- and third-sector actors around the world to advance the adoption of new technologies in the global public interest.

She currently focuses on blockchain, digital assets, data policy and the integration of new technologies with new data governance models.

She is on the boards of the ACLU of Northern California and the Equal Justice Society, and she advises various groups, including ones focused on blockchain technology, digital currency and data ethics.

1 - If the world is getting a new currency, will it be led by CBDCs, a permissionless blockchain like Bitcoin, or a permissioned chain such as Libra?

2 - Which countries are doing the most to support blockchain - and which ones will be left behind?

3 - If you didn't need sleep, what would you do with the extra time?
