First Appearance on This Machine Kills – Luna, Tether, and Crypto

164. Untethered, Unleashed (ft. Crypto Critics’ Corner) This Machine Kills

We are joined by Bennett Tomlin and Cas Piancey, hosts of the great podcast Crypto Critics’ Corner, for a deeper dive into stablecoins—a cornerstone // time bomb of the crypto financial system. They explain how stablecoins, and specifically Tether, have become systemically important to the workings of the system and the wealth of big players, creating too big to fail institutions that continue growing despite their practices, performance, and people being anything but stable.
