Roger Ver summed it up best earlier today, "crypto currencies enable non-state actors the ability to resist superpowers effectively." That's basically the gyst of a recent conversation I had with my good friend, Max Hillebrand of the World Crypto Network.
In episode 31 of The Agora, Max and I discuss how blockchains help individuals subvert the state. We also get his take on some of the recent trends in the crypto-community such as the BTC/BCH debate, Proof of Stake vs. Proof of Work, & alternative blockchain applications.
Some of the books & sources mentioned in today's episode...
Anarchy in Money by Max Hillebrand
The Bitcoin Standard by Saifedean Ammous
