#193 - Britain could become a hub for crypto
Today's episode from 21st April 2022. On this morning's show: The UK Chancellor Rishi Sunak has unveiled plans to make Britain a "global cryptoasset technology hub" and he even urged The Royal Mint to create an NFT this summer. We take a look at how this ambitious idea could fill the gap left by Russian money. Then later, we learn to let it go. Everything from work stress to relationship issues. Could this new coping mechanism replace mindfulness? Not since El Salvador has a government approached crypto with such eagerness. But, as Patrick Jenkins investigates in The Financial Times, the British treasury’s plans to embrace a crypto ecosystem are is very cautious and there is a lot of discussion about effective regulation. We are taught from a young age that we can push through hard times, which means letting go of feelings can feel counterintuitive in many ways. But, as people are increasingly burnt out and traumatised by years of seemingly ever-accelerating crises, the letting go message has begun to break through to the mainstream. For The Guardian, Brigid Delaney explores the power of letting go.
