As week (one million, it seems) of the COVID-19 lockdown plods on, many are wondering what the economy will look like six months from now.

Ryan Selkis is the CEO and founder of Messari. He was one of the earliest voices in crypto to sound the alarm on the potential impact of COVID-19 not only on the health system but on the economy. 

In this episode of The Breakdown, Ryan joins @NLW to discuss:

  • What it takes to reopen the economy 
  • Why voluntary, privacy preserving contact tracing is part of the solution
