    The Ether spot ETF has officially been approved marking a landmark day for Ethereum and crypto as a whole. We're going live today to discuss the extent of this approval and what it means for Ether the asset, and more broadly the entire crypto industry. This is a big deal and we're stoked to be sharing this moment live with the Bankless Nation.

    The New American Surveillance State | Byron Tau

    ✨ DEBRIEF | Ryan & David unpacking the episode:
    https://www.bankless.com/debrief-the-byron-tau-interview 

    ------
    Are we being watched?

    That’s the question we ask Byron Tau, an investigative journalist and author of “Means of Control'' that covers all about the US surveillance state.

    Turns out the US Government has a digital dossier of every citizen, but how? How do they collect the data? How are they using it? Can we ever get back our digital privacy?

    Expect to learn all that and much more in what is a deep dive into digital surveillance.

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.
