Caitlin Long and Jeff Horowitz: WTF is Happening with Regulation?
Ash Bennington sits down with Caitlin Long, CEO & founder of Avanti, and Jeff Horowitz, CCO of BITGO, to speculate on coming regulations and the implications these may have for the crypto space. Long discusses the benefits of preemptive regulation in the context of the work she has done and continues to do in Wyoming. Horowitz lays out the importance of regulation that preserves crypto's core purpose, especially in emerging markets. Additionally, they explore stable coins and the Federal Reserve, conflicting regulatory jurisdictions, and which countries are "ahead of the curve" in their crypto regulatory framework. Filmed live on March 24, 2021 at Crypto Gathering 2021.

Horowitz emphasizes creating access to emerging markets, harkening back to an early crypto commandment of bringing access to capital to the "unbanked". He fears greater regulation will isolate those living in failing states, and Long is concerned with maintaining the instantaneous clearing of transactions that smart contracts provide. She is actively working in Wyoming in hopes to influence early legislation and ensure a crypto-friendly outcome.
