Tarun Chitra, in addition to being Founder and CEO of Gauntlet, is a gigabrain, polymath type in the Ethereum space.

We explore the relationship between regulation and finance in a unique light. Finance itself is fundamentally a legal practice—it’s money plus law.   Finance becomes more elegant with smart contracts, and we muse on the idea that broader governance structures can improve with smart contracts as well.
