Hester Peirce is one of five SEC Commissioners. She's been a Commissioner since 2018, with her term ending in 2025. Peirce, a previous podcast guest of Bankless, consistently makes first principles statements and is known to often dissent for her colleagues on crypto-related actions…we talk about that in today’s episode. These are a couple of many reasons why we enjoy her and her guidance so much.

We’re three months into 2023 in one of the worst regulatory environments we’ve seen for crypto in the United States. In today’s episode, SEC Commissioner, Hester Peirce shares some insight on what crypto could be like if we had a first principles SEC, what a security is and how we can define it, and how can crypto take its share of the responsibility to move this industry forward.
Commissioner Peirce was on the show two years ago…Apr 12, 2021. Today’s second appearance is one you do not want to miss.
