A weekly podcast - SUBSCRIBE NOW

Feb 16, 2018

The founder and CEO of Polychain Capital discusses why an Ethereum core developer is stepping down, how blockchains should be governed and whether speculators and users have equal weight in crypto communities. We also discuss an op-ed that suggests a new crypto-specific regulatory body, and whether or not it's safe for Salon.com to be asking its readers who use ad-blockers to give computer power so Salon.com can mine Monero.
