The House of Representatives made history today by passing the Financial Innovation and Technology for the 21st Century Act (FIT21). FIT21’s success is proof that protecting blockchain technology in the U.S. has strong, bipartisan support. More below. ⤵️

In the next two weeks, the House of Representatives will vote on the most important piece of crypto legislation to date: FIT21. We’ve long called for regulatory clarity that protects consumers and innovation and the FIT21 Act will do just that.

I wrote an oped in The FT. My goal isn't to defend or to diminish memecoins. It’s to point out the backward incentives of a regulatory regime in the US that lets only memecoins thrive — while companies & tokens with more productive uses face hurdles. https://www.ft.com/content/1ceaa1c6-47df-4430-950e-ffcbf1cc8f7b

Looking forward to speaking and signing books at the Harvard Blockchain Conference in Boston tomorrow. It'll be a fireside with professor Tom Eisenmann, who taught me many of the lessons on building networks that I wrote about in Read Write Own. Hope to see you there!

“Death of the middle'' is a useful framework for predicting how new technologies will affect markets. The classic example is retail, once dominated by department stores like Sears and Kmart, until the internet drove consumers to two extremes: high-status premium brands and hyperscale internet retailers.

Read Write Own is #9 on the New York Times Nonfiction Best Seller list, and #25 on USA Today’s Best-selling Booklist (both fiction & nonfiction). I wrote it to help more people appreciate the potential of blockchains for building a better internet, and I’m grateful it resonated with so many of you. Thank you 🙏
