Crypto adotpion in US but still a lot of morons

Listen to the podcast this week for a differing perspective on the market & recent developments on a couple projects as well as legal developments at BuildingCrypto.Today.

Coinbase investment fund on the horizon.  With an index looking to include Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin, and BCash, there isn’t enough diversification for my liking, but I’m sure that will sky-rocket upon opening.  There are still a ton of legal rings to jump through, though this is changing across the US as several states have written some very accepting laws recently.  Support the podcast and invest when it rolls out if that’s your interest: https://www.coinbase.com/join/58ddbace00724d025c1fea6b
