This week, “Opinionated” hosts Ben Schiller, Anna Baydakova and Danny Nelson are speaking to PaperImperium, the primary and solely pseudonymous crypto advocate, lobbying on behalf of MakerDAO within the corridors of energy.
PaperImperium, or Paper, or Chris (his actual identify, however he’s not eager to publicize his full identify), is advocating for a transparent regulation for DAOs, or decentralized autonomous organisations.
DAOs are a brainchild of the crypto-anarchist tradition, and the idea implies that communities could make selections and clear up issues by frequent voting, utilizing their crypto tokens as voting mandates.
Curiously, Chris just isn’t an enormous fan of this concept itself, and he’s nonetheless on the fence on whether or not the idea is viable. Additionally, not all people shares a perception that decentralized finance (DeFi) wants regulation in any respect, and not too long ago the DAO members voted down the proposal to compensate Chris for his work.
Why then is he so enthusiastic about educating congressmen and regulators about MakerDAO and the whole lot round it? What acquired him into crypto within the first place, and why is he so enthusiastic about Maker?
Hearken to Anna, Ben and Danny speak to Chris about his observations concerning the moods in the direction of crypto in Washington, D.C., his hopes for DeFi and different issues.
