Let’s add a nondiscrimination principle. Bank lending shouldn’t be favored over DeFi lending. Traditional securities shouldn’t be favored over decentralized tokens. Exchanges shouldn’t be favored over DEXs. Etc.
The a16z policy framework is phenomenal. + build a better decentralized internet + tailor regulations to specific activities + harmonize oversight rules + modernize disclosures norms + clarify tax reporting rules + introduce DAOs as a new org structure + tackle the ESG challenge
