NFT Notes 13: Thibault Schrepel on Blockchain + Antitrust & NFTs

In this episode, Thibault Schrepel, Associate Professor of Law at VU Amsterdam, discusses his new book "Blockchain + Antitrust

The Decentralization Formula," which is published by Edward Elgar, as well as his perspective on NFTs. Schrepel begins by discussing how his study of antitrust law caused him to become interested in blockchain, and why he sees them as complements, rather than antagonists. He explains why regulators should take a light touch when regulating blockchain, in order to preserve its pro-competitive effects, and why participants in blockchain markets should embrace some forms of regulation, while opposing others. He also reflects on the extraordinary growth of the NFT market, how regulators should approach it, and what NFTs might be used for in the future. Schrepel is on Twitter at @LeConcurrential.
