Low Level Barbarians, co-hosted by Alex Le, Dave Chang, Jianggan Li and Andrew Gananantham, is a show that covers discussion and debate around trending topics from Asia on Asia. Topics can range widely from technology, startups, VC, investing, society, economics, and more. You can view summaries of Episode 1, Episode 2 and Episode 3.


In Episode 4, we share our perspectives (and some times debate) on three major topics:

  1. Singapore, Malaysia, Australia and South Africa central banks are banning together to develop an interbank system that removes intermediaries by using digital currencies. The LLB gang discusses the nature of digital currencies along with the context for blockchain ledger technologies.
  2. The second topic covers what the future of SaaS in Southeast Asia looks like. Will sass in SEA be home grown emerging markets focused, or can Southeast Asia produce global dominant companies that compete with the best.
  3. Lastly, the barbarians discuss what the role of governments should be for fostering innovation. What are the ingredients that allow governments to harness innovation?
