Dear Bankless Nation,

The events of this week made it clear: the legacy financial system is broken.


The powerful can delist our assets when they’re losing. They can steal our profits when things don’t go according to their plan. They can cheat, print, and collude—and how dare you question them?


We have to rebuild the system from the ground up.

We have to start with an open, neutral foundation.

The answer is DeFi.

The answer is Ethereum and Bitcoin.

This week showed the world the reason why we go bankless. GameStop was the starting pistol. The world’s about to discover the DeFi revolution.

Here’s what we have planned for next week:

  • Crypto dollars, regulation & DeFi | Jeremy Allaire (available now on premium)

  • We’ll teach you how to trade YFI perpetuals

  • Synthetix is dropping a piece on Optimism and L2 scaling

Oh…and our State of the Nation guests next week are gonna blow your mind. 🤯

This GameStop thing ain’t over.

Let’s get to the recap.


P.S. The first round of 2021 Bankless Badges go out on Monday. Reserve your spot!

🙏 Sponsor: Aave—earn high yields on deposits & borrow at the best possible rate!
