Today on “The Breakdown,” NLW looks at the latest institutional moves into crypto, including an over-the-counter (OTC) transaction between Goldman Sachs (GS) and Galaxy (the first of its kind with a major U.S. bank), as well as reports that Ray Dalio’s Bridgewater hedge fund is soon to make an investment into a crypto fund. NLW also looks at why Dalio, with his focus on a “changing world order,” makes sense as a crypto investor.

“The Breakdown” is written, produced by and features Nathaniel Whittemore aka NLW, with editing by Rob Mitchell, research by Scott Hill and additional production support by Eleanor Pahl. Adam B. Levine is our executive producer and our theme music is “Countdown” by Neon Beach. The music you heard today behind our sponsor is “I Don't Know How To Explain It” by Aaron Sprinkle.
