✨ DEBRIEF | Ryan and David unpacking the episode:
https://bankless.com/debrief-franklin-templeton 

Franklin Templeton Has Entered the Chat. More broadly TradFi has entered the chat. Franklin Templeton is a TradFi company with $1.5 trillion in assets. We brought on their SVP Sandy Kaul, who is a turbo crypto bull. 

What’s Franklin Templeton? It’s an investment management company (think mutual funds, ETFs) that manages over $1.5 Trillion in assets. This is what we in crypto affectionately refer to as TradFi and they recently came out with a BTC ETF and have big plans for future tokenization. They also seem to be incredibly bullish on crypto and this new intersection between crypto and TradFi. This is exactly what we wanted to explore with Sandy today.
