Is D.C. taking crypto seriously? Congressman Tom Emmer shares the latest from the ongoings in Washington. Minnesota Representative Emmer is a 4th term member of the House of Representatives. He sits on the House Financial Services Committee and is a dedicated crypto advocate. Many of us have preconceived notions that the majority of the government is anti-crypto. Representative Emmer explains why this isn’t entirely true. We also unpack what’s at stake here. What happens if we get crypto policy wrong? How do we defeat the super-shadowy-legislators? Should we follow in China’s Digital Yuan footsteps? Lastly, Representative Emmers shares that Bankless—yes—Bankless is having an impact in Washington! Find out in what way and how we’re going to continue crypto-pilling everyone in Washington. ------ ✨ DEBRIEF ✨ | Ryan & David's Unfiltered Thoughts on the Episode https://shows.banklesshq.com/p/debrief-crypto-in-washington-congressman  ------ 📣 ZERION | Trade Across 7 Networks and 500+ protocols https://bankless.cc/Zerion  ------ 🚀 SUBSCRIBE TO NEWSLETTER: https://newsletter.banklesshq.com/  🎙️ SUBSCRIBE TO PODCAST: http://podcast.banklesshq.com/  ------ BANKLESS SPONSOR TOOLS: ⚖️ ARBITRUM | SCALING ETHEREUM https://bankless.cc/Arbitrum  🍵 MATCHA | SMART ORDER ROUTING https://bankless.cc/Matcha  🚀 SLINGSHOT | LAYER 2 SOCIAL TRADING https://bankless.cc/Slingshot  🏦 GEMINI | TURN FIAT INTO CRYPTO https://bankless.cc/Gemini  🦁 BRAVE | THE BROWSER NATIVE WALLET https://bankless.cc/Brave  🦄 UNISWAP | DECENTRALIZED FUNDING https://bankless.cc/UniGrants  ------ Topics Covered: 0:00 Intro 6:00 Rep.
