The Paradigm Policy Council

We at Paradigm believe crypto is changing the world. Today's builders will democratize finance, create a more equitable internet, and bring about tools that will help humans seamlessly exchange goods, services, and information trustlessly. In the next decade, we will see innovations in every part of our society—from consumer protection to national security, politics to sports, gaming, and more.

This team advises Paradigm's leadership team and the Policy Lab and helps us tell the story of Web3 in Washington and around the world. We couldn't be more excited to have them involved in the conversation.
