Coin Center is a non-profit research and advocacy group focused on the public policy issues facing cryptocurrency and decentralized computing technologies. In this conversation, they cover the various branches in the US system, how these interact with the crypto/blockchain community, what the process is for making regulation and how coincenter gets involved.

Here are a few of the groups that they mention:

  • FinCen: Financial Crimes Enforcement Network.

Thanks for this week’s sponsor Interchain Foundation or ICF

ICF is focused on the research, development, and promotion of open, decentralized, network technologies like Cosmos

One of the most recent developments in the Cosmos ecosystem is the Stargate upgrade. Stargate is the largest Cosmos upgrade yet, enabling blockchains to connect with each other using the first standardized protocol for inter-blockchain communication (IBC). Here is our episode with Chris Goes about IBC.
