Today on “The Breakdown,” NLW looks at how the United States has been perhaps the greatest beneficiary of the Great Hashrate Migration away from China following the country’s mining ban in May. This has political implications for how bitcoin is treated in the U.S. At the same time, the U.S.’ overall regulatory stance toward crypto remains confused. NLW looks at comments from three separate SEC commissioners that show three separate perspectives on the industry.
