In the debut episode @NLW discusses recent regulatory action, DeFi project on a bitcoin sidechain and a new social media protocol initiative from Twitter.

The last few days have seen significant regulatory action, from the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) charging Shopin’s CEO with fraud over a $42 million ICO to a major coordinated federal action against an alleged $722 million crypto Ponzi scheme.

Over in the world of decentralized finance, meanwhile, a new project aims to show DeFi isn’t just for ethereum. Finally, Twitter is launching a Square Crypto–like skunkworks to support or create an open social media protocol. This and more on The Breakdown.
