In the fifth episode of Tech Tonic’s final season, FT columnist and host Jemima Kelly takes a look at crypto regulation and why there are so few of them. It’s a story that takes him to the heart of the American cowboy state of Wyoming, where the crypto industry seems to write its own laws. And as the midterm elections in the US heat up, we hear about how crypto lobbying has taken over Washington DC as well. Jemima interviews Rob Jennings, co-founder of CattleProof and the Wyoming Blockchain Coalition; Caitlin Long, head of Custodia Bank; Dennis Kelleher, co-founder of Better Markets; and Stephen Diehl, co-author of “Popping the Crypto Bubble”.
