79 - The Crypto Coalition | Ryan Selkis
Ryan Selkis is the Founder and CEO the crypto data analytics platform Messari. Last time Ryan was on the podcast, we debated Ether’s properties as a money and the triple point asset thesis. We revisit many of these topics and explore what has changed in the landscape over the past year.
However, we also discuss a perhaps more pressing issue: the state of regulation for the industry. Ryan is poised to take a strong leadership role in the political side of crypto, and he’s developing offensive strategies for the crypto vs. nation-state conflict. Listen in to learn why he’s now a single-issue voter.
