  • what Sam thinks about the actions of US crypto regulators (hint: it’s probably not what you would think)
  • why Sam thinks ETH’s price hit a new all-time this week
  • what Sam thinks about the changes to ETH monetary policy and the upcoming merge to Ethereum 2.0 
  • how Sam views the competition among layer 1 blockchains and why he is not a fan of maximalism
  • what factors he believes are driving the price of SOL 
  • what sort of projects are being built on Solana, and why people are excited about the ecosystem
