Today on the Brief:

  • Kraken is the first crypto exchange to become a U.S. bank
  • FTC preparing antitrust lawsuit against Facebook
  • Gold-standard fan Judy Shelton doesn’t have the votes to be confirmed as Federal Reserve governor 

Our main discussion: The battle for the soul of finance.

In this episode, NLW looks at the power competition between governments on the one hand and the decentralized network-driven finance alternatives that would reshape that power. Interestingly, in this competition corporations may play a role that benefits both sides at different times and in different ways.
