Epicenter: Dr. Luka Mller: MME ‚“ The Law Firm Behind the Rise of Switzerland’s CryptoValley

We were joined by Luka Mueller, who played a key role in establishing Switzerland as a cryptocurrency center and in laying the legal groundwork for the ICO boom. In 2014, his law firm MME worked with the Ethereum team to set up the Ethereum Foundation and run its public fundraiser. A model that was later copied by countless other projects and led MME to work with many other leading protocols like Cosmos and Tezos.

We also discussed his new project Sygnum, a cryptocurrency-focused bank. Nearly every company that works in the cryptocurrency space has had problems with its banking partner. Legal uncertainty, lack of knowledge, or simple unwillingness to work with cryptocurrency companies has made this a frequent nightmare for companies in this emerging sector. With a presence in both Switzerland and Singapore, Sygnum aims to fill a piece of missing infrastructure in the crypto-ecosystem: a bank that is able to receive, hold and transfer protocol tokens while offering a secure fiat gateway to easily transfer from the old world of finance to the new.

We also discussed Switzerland’s regulatory environment and why it is able to provide more regulatory clarity.

Topics discussed in this episode:

  • What life was like for Luka before blockchain
  • How Luka met Vitalik and went on to set up the Ethereum Foundation and run their fundraiser
  • What protocols his law firm, MME, helped launch
  • The lessons learned over the years, and how he would do it differently
  • Why Switzerland is a great jurisdiction for crypto projects
  • What Luka thinks of asset-backed tokens
  • What is Sygum, and why did he decide to start a crypto bank
  • What Luke believes will happen when the tech giants release their own currencies
  • The difference between Sygnum and similar banks
  • What Luka’s fears are in the space, and what he is hopeful for

Gun Violence Prevention with Texas Gun Sense – WBD172

Gun Violence Prevention with Texas Gun Sense – WBD172

  • Location: Austin
  • Date: Thursday, 22nd Nov
  • Project: Texas Gun Sense
  • Role: Executive Director (Texas Gun Sense) & Board Member (c)

The 2nd Amendment to the U.S constitution outlines Americans‘ right to keep and bear arms. America is now home to more guns than people and is the country with the highest number of deaths by firearms in the world.

The gun debate continues to polarise the nation. While many firmly stand by the constitution and see removing their right to own a gun as an attack on their civil liberties, others see the weapons as a dangerous and unnecessary threat responsible for tens of thousands of deaths per year.

Texas Gun Sense is a group who come at this debate with a more nuanced viewpoint. They aim to bring ‚˜common-sense, fact-based gun policies to Texas‘. The organisation is not anti-gun, but they do support increased and more rigorous background checks alongside education to improve gun safety practices.

In a previous episode, Ragnar Lifthrasir joined me on What Bitcoin Did, and we discussed why he believes it is every American’s right to own a gun. To continue the discussion, in this episode, we hear from Executive Director at Texas Gun Sense, Gyl Switzer and Leesa Ross from Lock Arms for Life, whose son was killed in a handgun accident. We discuss their approach to gun ownership while still supporting the 2nd Amendment.
