Kathryn Haun, general partner at Andreesen Horowitz, sits down with Kyle Bass, founder of Hayman Capital, to discuss her previous career as a U.S. Attorney.

Haun has seen the light and dark sides of bitcoin, but believes in the technology behind cryptocurrency, and is helping her firm bridge the gap between technologists and regulators.
