Ryan Selkis is the Founder and CEO the data analytics platform Messari. In Ryan's past Bankless appearances, we've debated ETH as money and the Triple Point Asset thesis. We've tackled crypto regulation and taking an aggressive stance on policy.
Now it's time to add it all together and decide what's next—what's important for the industry and the world as we head into 2022. Ryan wrote a 150+ page beast of a report titled 'Crypto Theses for 2022,' which covers the space from top to bottom. From DAOs and DeFi to Regulation and NFTs, there is no stone left unturned in this report.
In this episode, we digest the mountain of information Ryan puts together on an annual basis to answer the question: What's in store for Crypto in 2022?
