This month we are exciting to be digging into the dollar and its relation to both traditional finance and cryptocurrencies.

First, we'll explore how USD came to be known as the worlds reserve currency, and how this could change in the future. We'll discuss legal shortfalls of the dollar, such as FATCA, FBAR, and US sanctions.

In addition to that, we'll also discuss the triggers that exist for a global economic crisis, such as continued government spending and growing income inequality, followed by an exploration of the role that crypto will play in future recessions.

Overall, this will be a fascinating introduction into some of the fundamental topics that inspired the creation of cryptocurrencies.

We hope to see you there!
