In this episode, Dave discusses the new Financial Action Task Force (FATF) guidelines with Amsterdam-based regulatory consultant Simon Lelieveldt, who argues that these guidelines have gone way too far and are disproportionate, technically unsound and uneconomic. At the crux of this topic is the difference between how Facebook's Libra will accept regulation versus advocacy for online privacy by many in the Bitcoin community.
