As Twitter's CTO steps into the CEO role, what will the changes mean for crypto? This episode is sponsored by NYDIG.On today's episode, NLW looks at two topics. The first is the market crash that left bitcoin down 8.5% on Friday, only to partially recover over the weekend.

Second, he looks at the announcement that Jack Dorsey is stepping down from the CEO role at Twitter, to be replaced by Chief Technology Officer Parag Agrawal. What will this mean for bitcoin? Will Jack be spending more time on the cryptocurrency now? And what about Ethereum? Will a Web 3 blocker inside Twitter now be removed?
