All About Web3: The Regulatory Outlook For Cryptocurrency (Podcast) – Fin Tech


In This Podcast Episode

Cryptocurrency continues to dominate the headlines, from
beginning the yr at a excessive with main TV advertisements to questions in
current weeks in regards to the stability of the market. On this episode of
Within the Public Curiosity, co-host and Associate John Walsh is joined by fellow Companions Tiffany Smith and Zachary Goldman to discover the world of Web3
with Jai Ramaswamy. Ramaswamy is the Chief Authorized
Officer at Andreessen Horowitz—in any other case often known as
“A16Z,” an ode to the observe of shortening lengthy phrases
used repeatedly in code by taking the primary and final letter of a
phrase and the variety of letters in between.

Previous to becoming a member of A16Z, Ramaswamy served because the Chief Threat and
Compliance Officer at cLabs. He has over a decade of expertise at
the Justice Division, first serving as a prosecutor targeted on
white collar crime and cybercrime within the Southern District of New
York and later as Chief of the Asset Forfeiture and Cash
Laundering Part. Ramaswamy additionally labored within the Laptop Crime and
Mental Property Part on the Justice Division. Smith and
Goldman repeatedly advise purchasers on regulatory points associated to
cryptocurrency and the broader FinTech sector. Each write
often on regulatory developments affecting the Web3 area,
together with cryptocurrency and stablecoins.

Smith, Goldman and Ramaswamy probe the numerous functions of
decentralized methods in Web3, from cryptocurrency to NFTs and
past. Ramaswamy shares why he believes regulatory
issues—not know-how points—would be the principal
roadblock on this new decentralized ecosystem. The episode additionally
touches on the fragile balancing act of selling innovation whereas
mitigating the rising dangers related to decentralized

Audio system: John Walsh, Felicia Ellsworth, Tiffany Smith,
Zachary Goldman and Jai Ramaswamy

Walsh: Welcome to Within the Public Curiosity, a
podcast from WilmerHale. I am your co-host, John Walsh.

Ellsworth: And I am your co-host, Felicia
Ellsworth. John and I are companions at WilmerHale, a global
regulation agency that works on the intersection of presidency, know-how
and enterprise.

Walsh: On this episode, we’re diving into
the world of Internet 3. We hear quite a bit today about crypto, DeFi and
NFTs. We’ll unpack what these phrases truly imply,
what advantages these applied sciences might convey, and likewise the challenges
they face, together with from a authorized and regulatory perspective.
There’s maybe nobody higher suited to discover this subject than
our visitor, Jai Ramaswamy, the Chief Authorized Officer at Andreessen
Horowitz. Jai brings a wealth of data and expertise in each
the personal and the general public sectors. He beforehand labored at Celabs
engaged on Celo, a mobile-first platform to make crypto funds
obtainable via a cellular phone. He additionally spent years working within the
monetary providers business at Capital One and Financial institution of America
Merrill Lynch. Earlier than that, Jai spent over a decade on the Justice
Division as a prosecutor within the Southern District of New York and
then at Most important Justice, the Washington DC headquarters of the
Division of Justice, the place he was within the laptop crime and
mental property part, after which served as Chief of the
Asset Forfeiture and Cash Laundering Part. We’re additionally
joined by two of our companions, Tiffany Smith and Zach Goldman.
Tiffany and Zach advise purchasers within the business dealing with novel authorized
challenges. They’ll lead the dialogue with Jai as we
attempt to unpack this fascinating and admittedly difficult subject. Thank
you all for being right here.

Smith: Jai, thanks a lot for being right here
as we speak to speak with us about what’s new in cryptocurrency. We
are thrilled to have you ever for what guarantees to be an enchanting
dialogue, and I am joined right here with my colleague, Zach
Goldman, who, as you understand, I work very carefully with on these

Ramaswamy: Effectively, it is a pleasure to be right here
and thanks for inviting me. I simply need to make very clear that
something I say as we speak shouldn’t be taken as funding recommendation.
We’re simply having a normal dialogue on digital property and
the Web3 area, however need to make it clear that nothing that I say
needs to be taken as funding recommendation going ahead.

Smith: Wonderful.

Goldman: Jay, thanks a lot, once more, for
becoming a member of. Earlier than we dive into that dialogue about Web3 and crypto
and the way forward for the web and monetary system, we might love
to listen to a bit bit about your individual background. You spent a decade
as a prosecutor targeted on cybercrime and cash laundering, maybe
not the normal path to turning into the Chief Authorized Officer of a
enterprise fund, and we might be actually to grasp how
these experiences formed what you’re doing as we speak at Andreessen

Ramaswamy: Positive, I believe my profession, like all
careers, make a ton of sense looking back. While you’re going
via them, they are typically a number of actually attention-grabbing
alternatives and avenues that simply appear nice on the time. And, I
suppose, that the 2 issues that I’ve tried to pursue in my
profession is (1) be round good individuals. You are likely to study extra if
you are surrounded by individuals which might be, in actual fact, smarter then
your self, and I’ve all the time discovered these sorts of environments to
be extra participating for me, personally, and professionally. And the
second factor is to be round individuals that you simply respect and in
establishments which have a mission. And that is all the time pushed me
is to be round establishments that sort of serve a larger objective
and that is what drew me to the federal government. As you level out, my
profession within the authorities was targeted on white collar crime,
cybercrime, cash laundering points. And, I believe that all through
my DOJ profession, I used to be within the intersection of know-how
and sort of white collar crime. It was simply an space that drew my
curiosity. And that is what drew me to cybercrime and a number of the
earlier circumstances I had in cybercrime, in actual fact, concerned early variations
of digital currencies, like E-gold, Liberty Reserve, which weren’t
distributed ledger applied sciences, however they have been makes an attempt to sort of
convey a funds framework onto the web, which is likely one of the
preliminary failings, if you’ll, of the know-how inherent within the
authentic web. However in addition they introduced dangerous actors, I believe, into
the ecosystem. My very own view was that you simply should not choose
know-how by whether or not dangerous actors use it or not. Unhealthy actors are simply
like another human being, everybody goes to make use of know-how and
there are dangerous actors which might be going to make use of it. To me, it has all the time
been rather more of a danger administration query, which is what do you
do with newer applied sciences, and what sort of frameworks do you could have
in place to just remember to reduce the dangers. Understanding
that, I’ve made this remark generally it might be an
overstatement, however dangerous guys have used know-how because the earliest
days. I think about the primary use of fireplace was to cook dinner meals, and the
second use was most likely to commit arson. It is simply sort of
inherent in who we’re as human beings. And, I believe, we’ve got to
acknowledge that. However afterward in my profession at DOJ, I targeted sort of
closely on cash laundering points, sanctions of brokers’
points, Patriot Act points which, you understand, within the early a part of
the twenty first century, have been sort of the place the motion was and the place quite a bit
of curiosity and focus of the federal government was following 911. And, in
that context, we began to see the rise of cryptocurrencies,
bitcoin in 2009, but additionally different sort of digital cost methods and
I turned considering it, however inside a bigger context, which is
that we have been additionally pursuing some pretty large-scale prosecutions of
monetary establishments for varied AML and sanctions violations.
There is a elementary technological shift that actually
fascinated me, that I needed to be part of. And that is form
of what drew me to this area after which someday into my function because the
Chief Threat and Compliance Officer, a chance got here as much as work
with Andreessen Horowitz on their regulatory coverage with respect to
crypto. And that was fascinating to me, to actually be capable of focus
on particular regulatory points that have been dealing with this area to be at
the bottom ground of that dialog and to actually assist form this
area as a result of my feeling was that, hopefully not underestimating
the issue of technical challenges. However I assume I got here to the
conclusion that the technical challenges have been going to be solved.
We’ve got a number of actually good laptop scientists, cryptographers,
mathematicians engaged on these things, however that one of many lengthy
poles within the tent have been actually the regulatory points. And to be
concerned in a spot the place regulatories have been on the forefront of the
dialog, appeared fascinating to me. And so, I made the transfer,
after which shortly after becoming a member of internally as we have been contemplating
inside Andreessen Horowitz what the longer term seemed like, an
alternative arose to be the Chief Authorized Officer and to assist vogue
an strategy to enterprise capital that would incorporate a number of the
insights we have been seeing from each Web3 in addition to conventional
enterprise capital and give you authorized methods that would deal with
them the identical, and so, I’ve had nice alternatives which have
come alongside, people who find themselves, in some ways, smarter than me have
entrusted me with the power to take care of a few of these issues,
and I have been lucky is all I can say.

Goldman: That is fascinating and there is
a lot that was wealthy in what you simply mentioned that we’d like to
unpack and, I do know, Tiffany goes to dive in in a second to,
a number of the points you touched on about how cryptocurrency and Web3
know-how isn’t just about monetary functions. It is a lot
extra foundational than that, and I believe, clearly, we might love
to listen to your views on that. Earlier than we go there, I needed to only
pause on one of many belongings you talked about about the best way you are
wanting on the regulatory points within the cryptocurrency ecosystem.
And, I believe Andreessen appears, because it kind of introduced to be,
considerably distinctive in that it has constructed out a big in-house kind of
public coverage and regulatory staff, and I’d love so that you can simply
mirror for a second on how and why you see the regulatory points
as being so central to the cryptocurrency panorama, the Web3
panorama. Folks, I believe, would instinctively take into consideration the
know-how points because the kind of principal obstacles to additional
improvement of the ecosystem, and also you appear to be suggesting a
barely completely different strategy the place regulatory variations are entrance
and middle, so if you happen to would not thoughts, simply saying a number of phrases
about that that might be nice.

Ramaswamy: Positive. I believe it is constant
with A16Z’s philosophy and the way it enters this area, which is
to be the best accomplice that we may be to entrepreneurs, and one
of the hallmarks of our mannequin is that we put money into firms that
we’ve got a perception in, however we additionally attempt to present help for the
entrepreneurs in numerous methods in numerous shapes on operational
points. And lots of of our early buyers have been, in actual fact, from the
working facet from working firms. And, I believe, whenever you
translate that to Web3, there are a complete host of points that
aren’t essentially confronted in a conventional startup firm
atmosphere, and considered one of them, as I discussed, are the regulatory
points. The regulatory points are typically extra vital within the Web3
area than elsewhere, solely due to the uncertainty on this
area. You realize, entrepreneurs, in my expertise, each in my
earlier undertaking in addition to right here, actually do need to get this proper,
however it takes fairly a little bit of esoteric information, candidly, to
navigate via this area. And, I believe, that they search for
steerage and we need to be a useful resource, the place applicable. We’re
not going to be their legal professionals; we’re not going to carry out
providers that may solely be carried out by their in-house of us. However we
need to present steerage the place applicable and attainable, and we
additionally need to be a part of the dialog, a part of the general public
dialog that is taking place in Washington and different capitals
all over the world inside the tech group to translate what this
technological revolution means for public coverage, and the way the
public coverage atmosphere ought to reply in a means that does not
crush the innovation, however does mitigate the dangers which might be going to
emerge as with all new know-how. And we need to be a part of that
dialog as a result of it absolutely helps our ecosystem companions and the
startups that we help, however we additionally see it as a broader concern
which is that this actually is a revolution that is going to be as
vital to computing and to society because the web was. And also you
need to be a part of that, particularly when you could have a sort of breadth
of data, as we do, of this area, seeing the total business as
it is growing, the total gamut of firms which might be out
there. We’ve got a novel perspective that we need to convey to bear,
and so I believe it is that dual-facing function each internally for
our portfolio firms, but additionally externally to assist inform
policymakers, the general public, about what we’re seeing altering
below our ft, which might not be perceptible to most individuals as a result of
they don’t seem to be on this day-to-day.

Smith: Yeah, it is price noting that sure
of the factors you made about each understanding the potential for
the innovation, and fostering that, but additionally having regulation that
addresses these dangers may be very reflective of what President Biden
mentioned in his government order about crypto, which, as you understand,
everyone within the business considered as optimistic as a result of it each
acknowledges the US’ curiosity in being a frontrunner in
this area, but additionally it talked in regards to the potential for monetary
inclusion and different advantages, but additionally mentioned the dangers. So,
it’s extremely balanced. So, I believe, that the work that you simply all
have performed goes to be a vital basis, as we see the
research that come out from that report, and we transfer to the subsequent
technology of the web in Web3 and cryptocurrency, which is a
good segue to what I need to speak about subsequent, proper. So,
we have talked about Web3 a variety of instances, so are you able to simply sort of
again up for a minute and assist us perceive what Web3 is.

Ramaswamy: Completely. And to grasp this,
I believe, you have sort of bought to open the aperture a bit bit.
I will give a plug to A16Z State of Crypto Report which
our crypto staff, Chris Dixon and others, have actually supplied a
view of what is taking place within the business from a broad lens.
And, if you happen to learn that, the issues that you’re going to acknowledge is that
what we’re speaking about is a paradigm shift in computing
platforms. And, I believe, that is oftentimes missed within the
broader debate or maybe not absolutely appreciated. I believe that is
the easiest way to consider that is one thing that, once more, is in
our State of Crypto Report and that Chris Dixon defined properly.
Web1, if you consider it, was learn solely. Consider Google, you
might entry data anyplace and you’ll devour it, you’ll be able to
learn it. Web2 was learn, write. You devour data, however you’ll be able to
additionally publish it. However the rise of that, Web2, additionally created platforms
that exert, in a way, affect on the form of the web.
Web3 is learn, write and personal, the place you’ll be able to truly personal a bit
a part of the web. It is truly native property rights on
the web that can help you personal content material, to personal data on
the web. And it makes it sort of learn, write, personal. And
that is the paradigm we’re speaking about, the place new enterprise
fashions at the moment are attainable as a result of there’s new types of possession.
We do not have to rely solely on knowledge exploitation and
promoting fashions which might be inherent in Web2, and the economies of
scale and probably monopolization that that permits, however we will
transfer to new distributed varieties that generate way more income for
content material creators, for instance, relatively than having the take charges of
the platforms be the most important part of the economics there. And,
that could be a profound shift each from a technological viewpoint,
but additionally from a enterprise viewpoint, that’s going to form the
means we take into consideration a complete host of industries sooner or later.
It is not going to be cabin to at least one or the opposite. We’re going
to see this and we’re seeing it sort of wash throughout the
technological panorama extra broadly. That is, I believe, the
significance and the affect that Web3 is having, and can proceed to
have sooner or later and that is what makes actually me excited
and I believe us, as a agency, enthusiastic about this know-how.

Smith: I need to say that’s the greatest description
of Web3 that I’ve ever heard. I am undoubtedly going to
borrow that so, if you happen to hear it once more, it was undoubtedly me
borrowing Jai’s phrases that he borrowed from another person,

Ramaswamy: Sure, to be clear that could be a borrowing
from individuals at our agency who’re far smarter than I’m. When you suppose
about what you truly personal as we speak on the web, you truly
do not personal issues. You’ve got intensive licensing rights with
platforms that personal issues, and it tends to come back up when Amazon
decides {that a} film you have bought goes to be taken away
from you, or whenever you understand that the e-book that you simply bought on
a selected platform may be taken away as a result of there is a dispute
within the background. You watch Cable TV and the channel is taken away
from you, so we intermediate our experiences with the web
via platforms and we’ve got licensing rights with these
platforms. However we do not have property possession in the identical means
that we do whenever you personal an precise e-book. If you go to the shop
and you purchase a e-book, you’ll be able to lend it to your brother, your sister,
you’ll be able to promote it again to anyone, you are able to do a complete host of issues
with it, after which broadly extra when you consider property
rights. You personal it, and you are able to do issues with it. You’ll be able to
hypothecate curiosity, you’ll be able to leverage it, and that does not
work in the identical means with issues which might be primarily licensed to
you. What Web3 permits is possession of, whether or not it is an NFT or
whether or not it is a token, it is possession of that factor natively
on the web. Now, the regulation nonetheless has to catch up, in sure
cases, with the framework round how we deal with these items, however
nonetheless, that is the core factor is that you simply truly personal it,
you digitally personal one thing in a similar means that you simply bodily
personal it. And that is what I imply by proudly owning part of the web
is when you could have a token and also you’re taking part in governance
choices, you’re a part of that group and you’ve got a stake in
that group, and also you’re proudly owning a chunk of that know-how
instantly, not via a 3rd occasion. You’ll be able to’t personal Microsoft
Excel. Microsoft owns Microsoft Excel, and also you personal a share in that
firm. If you’re speaking about tokens, you could have a direct
curiosity within the governance and within the participation in that
group instantly. There is not an establishment that is
mediating between you and that, that really owns the software program.
It is all open supply and also you take part in it. If you personal an
NFT, and there is plenty of authorized points round copyright different
issues, so I do not need to simplify this, however, in its purest
essence, you personal it, digitally, and there is nonetheless some catchup
that must be performed when it comes to the framework of how we take into consideration
that. However conceptually that is what is going on on right here. That
hasn’t been attainable earlier than, as I mentioned, in these different
paradigms of the web that has existed, and that is the sport
changer, if that is sensible.

Smith: Are you able to dig in a bit bit about who
stands to learn most from the decentralization that Web3

Ramaswamy: I believe it is onerous to say.
It is as onerous to say because it was in 2001 or 1997 who was going to
profit from the web. To a sure extent, we’re
speculating. I believe that a number of the preliminary beneficiaries that we
actually see listed below are content material creators. I believe platforms and
different intermediaries will determine methods to monetize Web3 as properly.
However, to me, the largest potential gamechanger is the distributed
financial advantages which might be attainable right here. I believe we’ve got to take
care, and, I believe, this is the reason the regulatory dialog is
vital to ensure that we’re viewing issues in as broad a
gentle as attainable to verify these advantages truly accrue
as a result of one of many issues that I fear about is that a number of the
impetus inside the regulatory atmosphere is to power decentralized
fashions into centralized paradigms, which truly reinforce our
financial energy buildings versus permitting this know-how to
disintermediate energy and affect. And so, there’s truly
a, imagine it or not, a little bit of a push and pull right here between the
know-how itself, which is decentralizing and coverage which is
forcing centralization. And look, I believe that there are legitimate
criticisms of the atmosphere that say, hey, perhaps it isn’t as
decentralized appropriately. It might do higher. That is true
in any business, proper? However, to me, it is leveraging the
uniqueness of this paradigm and ensuring that it may well stay as much as
its potential. That is what we should always all be working for, is the
upside potential right here to actually distribute features of this new
ecosystem in a means that appears to be fairer than what we’ve got
as we speak.

Smith: Wonderful. At a excessive degree, might you
simply give us a way for a way Andreessen thinks about figuring out
promising firms on this area.

Ramaswamy: That is most likely one thing
I will steer clear of. What I’ll inform you is that the best way we
take into consideration that is as a broad technological shift and the sorts of
areas that, usually, broad technological shifts are likely to
affect these sorts of industries that we’re all acquainted
with. We’ll see impacts in finance, however we’re additionally
going to see impacts in leisure, in content material sharing, in
publishing. I’d nearly flip that query round and say I
cannot consider part of the economic system that it isn’t going to
affect, candidly. There are clearly going to be some components
the place it is too distant, for instance, is biotech essentially
going to be implicated by this, however, to the extent that it adjustments
an data paradigm, you are seeing firms considering
healthcare information, you are seeing firms considering
decentralized id, you are seeing firms considering
property rights. All of these issues are being influenced by this
know-how. We’re in very, very early days. However that is the
means I actually view it, is that that is one thing that has the
potential to affect the economic system, as a complete, which is why I believe
it is a bit bit deceptive to consider it as a sector. When
we consider Web3, it isn’t a sector of the economic system a lot as
it’s a foundational know-how or a sort of further
computational error on the web that can have broad impacts
throughout the economic system, and throughout society as a result of I believe there’s
social implications of this as properly.

Smith: Wonderful. You touched on this a bit
earlier, however are you able to assist us perceive how you consider Web3
and cryptocurrency. Are they comparable or what is the relationship
between these two completely different ideas.

Ramaswamy: The vital factor to appreciate is
that some individuals oftentimes say I am for block chain, however not
for cryptocurrency. And I believe that is a little bit of a
misunderstanding of the know-how. A block chain with out an
incentivized layer, which is what cryptocurrencies present, is
actually only a database. The brand new factor about Web3 is that you simply create
incentive buildings to convey individuals into the ecosystem, to offer
sources to a distributed community, they usually get compensated in
these digital property. And likewise permit customers to pay into the system
utilizing these digital property, and so, you could have a kind of merging of
customers’ infrastructure suppliers in addition to content material creators on
these methods they usually grow to be community-owned methods, and on the
coronary heart of it, is the incentivization that cryptocurrencies or
digital property permit, and so, I believe it is vital to appreciate
that Web3 is inherently built-in with digital property. They’re
probably not separable in an actual means, and also you see this in sort of the
improvement cycle of how curiosity sort of accrues on these methods.
There is no doubt that we see and we’ve got seen worth actions
of digital property, and since we’re speaking about an
incentivized web, we’re bringing economics into the
web itself. It is not separate from the web, however
it is inherent on the web now that there are going to be
sort of worth actions that occur with these digital property. However
what’s vital about these worth actions is and, I believe,
that is additionally in our State of Cryptocurrency Report, it drives
innovation. It drives the builders who’re growing on these
platforms, and it is finally the curiosity of builders and
individuals constructing on these platforms that it will drive
that innovation, that is going to drive adoption, and the
incentive buildings, created by cryptocurrencies, are what drive
that improvement curiosity, in the identical means that what drives the
curiosity in an organization is incentivized. However we’re speaking about
now a distributed system that is incentivized. So, I do not
suppose that they are as distinguishable as some individuals appear to
recommend. If you delve deeper, you understand that it’s, in actual fact,
the incentivization that is distinctive and that is new about this
system. And, as I mentioned, we’re nonetheless sort of in early days of
what all this implies.

Smith: That is fascinating and a really
attention-grabbing perspective as a result of, you are proper, there is a
lot of parents who separate the 2 ideas, however I believe, considering
about that collectively and the incentivization is critically

Goldman: Jai, by means of wrapping up this half
of our dialog, I needed to ask you about stablecoins. These
are crypto tokens, typically talking, which might be pegged to an
underlying asset, often the U.S. greenback, and beginning with the
President’s Working Group Report in November of 2021,
there’s been elevated dialogue a couple of potential regulatory
framework surrounding stablecoins. So, we might love your views on
that and would respect your perspective on what that framework
ought to appear to be or what, at a minimal, it ought to give attention to.

Ramaswamy: Look, I believe that on the coronary heart of a
lot of issues round stablecoins is what are backing these
property. And, to me, the center of any regulation that is going to
emerge is round transparency. It is about figuring out what’s
backing these items. And, if you consider it, that is form
of on the coronary heart of many of the rules, whether or not it is
banking rules, securities rules, and so forth. that govern this
area. So, I do not suppose that there is something notably
ground-breaking that I can share when it comes to a imaginative and prescient. I believe
there is a full of life dialog happening, and I believe individuals
acknowledge that. The one caveat I’d sort of make round
stablecoin regulation is that, as with all issues within the crypto
area, as a result of we’re speaking a couple of programmable worth layer,
some individuals name it programmable cash, however it’s actually a
programmable worth layer on the web. The use circumstances are going
to be broad and vast and possibly issues that we won’t even
take into consideration as we speak. And so, I believe, it will be very
vital for regulators to take a very nuanced strategy to
perceive what are the varieties of “stablecoins” no matter
we name them which have kind of direct monetary affect that would
have potential ramifications for the monetary system as a complete. I
suppose we’re nonetheless in embryonic days, and I believe that even
Treasury has admitted that they don’t seem to be seeing systemic impacts
right here but. It is extra an rising danger than an present danger in
phrases of systemic impacts, however we might see it sooner or later, and
determining what these are. And so, I’d simply warning
regulators to grasp that, sure, in fact, issues which might be
clearly monetary and which have clear monetary affect, we
completely want a framework, but additionally perceive that there are
some very attention-grabbing issues happening right here which might be tangential to
what’s taking place in sort of monetary markets. Positive,
they’re adjoining as a result of we’re speaking about an
incentivized web and to tread rigorously in order that we do not
crush some fairly attention-grabbing issues which might be taking place in that
area. And that might be my warning. I am not a lot within the
prognosis enterprise. I used to be within the authorities. I understand how tough
it’s to give you rules on this space, and to get
consensus and drive consensus so I most likely would not be an excellent
prognosticator. They have a tough job forward of them. It is
extra energy to offer pointers; it could be to ensure that
we’re addressing present dangers, we’re monitoring rising
dangers and coping with issues in a nuanced means in order that we’re
not crushing some actually attention-grabbing and revolutionary issues that
might change society for the higher, however we missed that chance
as a result of we’re attempting to shoehorn issues right into a single given
mannequin. I believe that might be my pitch, if you’ll, to regulators.
Take issues in a nuanced means. And it is also according to the
means we take into consideration danger administration. I’ve been in danger administration
for a very long time in my put up DOJ profession, and that is sometimes
what you do, you handle present danger, you monitor rising dangers,
and also you search for alternatives and ensure that innovation permits
these alternatives to flourish and, I believe, that is what the
authorities is looking accountable innovation. I believe we actually
agree with that, however it requires a nuanced and cautious strategy,
relatively than treating every part with a broad brush, which is what
you are likely to do when there’s huge change, proper. I believe
there is a profit to taking a extra nuanced strategy right here.

Goldman: That makes a ton of sense to me, of

Smith: So, that brings us to the conclusion of
as we speak’s episode. Jai, thanks a lot for becoming a member of us and
speaking about this very fascinating subject. And thanks a lot for a
description of Web3 that now Zach and I are going to make use of in all places
we go and to attribute to you and others till we begin getting
charged for it through the brand new Web3.

Ramaswamy: I’m undoubtedly stealing this from
others so I need to be sure that they get the credit score for truly
developing with this.

Goldman: Thanks a lot, Jai.

Smith: We respect your being right here with

Walsh: Thanks, Jai, Tiffany and Zach for
becoming a member of us to speak about this fascinating and fast-moving subject and
for serving to to demystify, a bit bit, this concept of Web3. It
appears like there’s rather more to come back on this area and
we’re now higher geared up to grasp it.
