    Why You Should Leave Your Country | Andrew Henderson

    Why You Should Leave Your Country | Andrew Henderson

    Is it a good idea to diversify your citizenship given the current global landscape? 
    We brought on Andrew Henderson, an entrepreneur, a global citizen to nearly a dozen countries around the world, and the founder Nomad Capitalist - a company that helps people maximize their freedom by getting multiple citizenships and passports.
    Hear why considering a second or even a third citizenship might be beneficial, the most crypto-friendly jurisdictions, and what an exit tax entails. Andrew also shares why he renounced his US citizenship and provides insights into the costs and process of obtaining a second passport.

    Mike Solana: Trump, Crypto, Tech, Politics & Memetic Wars

    Mike Solana: Trump, Crypto, Tech, Politics & Memetic Wars

    Is the U.S going to be ok?
    Mike Solana (no relation to Solana the chain, that’s his name),is the editor-in-chief of Pirate Wires and the guy who broke the Trump Memecoin news.
    We brought him on the show today to try to make sense of the current state of politics in the face of the upcoming election, and what it all means for crypto.
    Expect to learn why tech has pivoted right, why democrats are cracking down on crypto, why media in 2024 is fundamentally broken and much more.

    Chevron Deference: 40-Year Decision Reversed & Explained | Justin Slaughter

    Chevron Deference: 40-Year Decision Reversed & Explained | Justin Slaughter

    Is the Chevron Deference case good for crypto? Is it good for the U.S.? Or is this a giant tradeoff that will lead to bad outcomes? 

    Crypto enthusiasts, pro-tech individuals, and those on the right say this will stop regulators from making random rules.

    Non-crypto sources, mainstream media, and those on the left say it will lead to chaos, unchecked corporations, and poor governance.

    So, what’s the truth? That’s what we’re here to find out. Our guest today is Justin Slaughter, current policy director at Paradigm and previous senior adviser of the SEC and chief policy adviser of the CFTC.

    Matt Hougan and Alex Thorn put together their own analysis of inflows for the ETH ETF. Remarkably, their numbers came in somewhere close to the same place.
    We discussed how much demand there will be for the ETH ETF, whether or not it will overperform or underperform expectations and the overall state of the Crypto Market today.

Limited World View

Advancing blockchain technology is vitally important. Inviting anyone on to this podcast as long as they share that viewpoint is the modus operandi of Bankless.

When it comes to inviting political candidates on, favoring pro crypto candidates (often those whose views in other arenas are wildly harmful) to the expense of all else underscores the limited perspective these hosts can offer their audiences.
