Bitcoin Politics: A Year of Reflection and 2022 Predictions



    - Advertisement -

    This week, “Opinionated” hosts Ben Schiller, Anna Baydakova and Danny Nelson are talking about the most exciting and most annoying things that happened in crypto this year.

    For Ben, the crypto hearings in the U.S. Senate – a whole bunch of them, actually! – really marked this year. Now it’s clear cryptocurrencies have some prominent opponents on Capitol Hill including Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.). What will the crypto politics be in 2022? Ben has some ideas.

    On another regulatory note, this year the U.S. started an offensive on illegal crypto use, and also demonstrated that the seemingly decentralized and global world of blockchains is not above sanctions policies. That offensive might expand in 2022, Anna believes.

    And, of course, NFTs! What would characterize this year better? Whether the hype will die down or the NFT wave will keep engulfing the world in 2022 is up in the air, but Ben, Anna and Danny have theories to share.

    Also in this episode: Ben singing and Danny as the Crypto Grinch. Enjoy your holidays!
