On today’s episode, NLW looks at recent reports the Biden administration is weighing an executive order on crypto. The order would involve numerous agencies and create a common approach to the industry. Unfortunately, the work is being held up by the fact that the administration doesn’t have anyone who knows about crypto on its team, barring one adviser who recused himself because he owns bitcoin. NLW also looks at news from China and U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz’s comments on bitcoin mining in Texas.
