TODAY'S 🎙SHOW: Douglas Tuman interviews Wesley Thysse of decentralized legal system.com, who recently made a splash on r/cryptocurrency with the posting of his report on what regulations he believes governments worldwide will begin to enforce with regards to crypto.

The two discuss Wesley's research into the Financial action task Force and their recent recommendations to G20 on how to approach crypto currency, and why and how the FATF has so much influence in bringing forth financial regulations in the US and globally, especially considering it is not an elected body.

The two also discuss Wesley's thoughts on crypto and in particular monero as an unstoppable technology and whether betting on Monero in the face of mounting regulatory headwind is sound.
