Meanwhile this wk…Paypal purchased a crypto custodial solution for $500M.
This is the the DeFi mullet thesis playing out. FinTech in front, DeFi in the back. Eventually every multi-billion dollar FinTech company will switch out their traditional banking infrastructure for crypto rails.
That’s exactly what they’re starting to do. According to The Block, Paypal is experimenting with Ethereum, smart contracts, and other blockchain technologies to help improve their payment processing and other functionality.

Maybe the banks will grow out their own mullets to compete.
Here’s what’s lined up for next week:
