Vitalik Buterin returns to the Podcast to discuss his recent article ‘Moving Beyond Coin Voting Governance.’ As always, Vitalik comes with a birds-eye view of high level challenges facing the crypto space with a moral & philosophical slant.

Building sufficiently decentralized governance mechanisms is a hugely challenging endeavor. Tackling elegant solutions to coin voting, we also cover the benefits of running your own node, the metaverse, and an update on the Ethereum narrative.

When Vitalik comes on Bankless, it’s time to listen closely.
