A Financial Times piece reports that Friedberg played more of a role in the pair's prior gambling-crypto venture, Primedice, but Craven did note that “a lot of [the work to set up Stake] was ran past” Friedberg.

Kentucky at the Finish Line But...

Kentucky Senate Majority Floor Leader Damon Thayer (R, Georgetown) said Wednesday night they were close to passing sports betting legislation in the commonwealth but that the votes weren't quite there at that moment.
