On today’s episode, NLW is joined by Castle Island Ventures’ Nic Carter. Nic was the first to identify the concerted effort to deplatform crypto from the banking system as “Operation Choke Point 2.0.” In their conversation, Nic discusses the original Operation Choke Point, how that operation came to an end, when he began to notice signs of a similar strategy targeting crypto and where the industry is now.
