Stacks: Is Bitcoin DeFi Overhyped, Underrated Or A Pipe Dream? | Muneeb Ai

Muneeb Ali joins us to discuss how Stacks is bringing DeFi to Bitcoin. We cover Stacks design, the Bitcoin DeFi thesis, L2 security guarantees, Stacks' recent implementation bug and more!

And as usual, we start the episode with our analyst bullpen to discuss Aave's GHO, TradFi announcements, Optimism's Bedrock, Frax governance shenanigans and BitDAO.
