In today's episode, we discuss this week's regulatory updates, the MEV debate and what to expect in the next bull cycle! We've had a hectic regulatory week with Gary Gensler's committee meeting, the EU's MICA legislation and a heated stablecoin hearing. We explore where US regulation is heading, the positive implications of MICA and if companies like Coinbase will move their operations to crypto-friendly jurisdictions.
We then discuss the potential return of FTX, the MEV debate and what narratives will play out in the next bull cycle. Why would anyone buy FTX? Will MEV be democratized, or can it be reduced? Why will the best GameFi projects outperform DeFi? Tune in to find out!
