Episode #7: Under the Iron Veil
Holy Greece, Batman! The Bitcoin community is a fascinating mixture of political idealists, technology enthusiasts, entrepreneurs, investors, etc. attracted to some of the interesting problems around Bitcoin and the blockchain. Much of this work focuses on the theoretical core of bitcoin, and shows real progress towards answering concerns about bitcoin’s safety and liveness bounds. Separation of what people truly need sold to them as what they think they need and people being kept blind of what they do in the veil until it is too late. Episode 7 is about the human struggle for the separation of money and state, and about Bitcoin as the instrument by which it will happen. In addition, serial entrepreneur Erik Voorhees — an outspoken Bitcoin evangelist and CEO of Shapeshift.io, joins us on the show to talk about these topics, libertarian ideals, communal consensus, and more.
