Delphi Podcast Host Tom Shaughnessy hosts Psykeeper, the founder of Saffron Finance. Psykeeper shared his incredible story as an anonymous founder and the benefits of being anon. He also dove into how Saffron tranches risk for users, tranche dynamics, token econ plans and use cases, what the future holds and so much more. 

This was our first episode where a founder used a voice changer to protect his identity, and we are more than happy to host founders, known or anon, to share their stories.

Saffron is a protocol for tokenizing on-chain assets, including contracts that otherwise impair access to utilized capital. Tokenized ownership of on-chain assets gives liquidity providers greater flexibility and uninterrupted access to their underlying collateral while enabling leveraged staking and bespoke risk management.
