In this episode, I speak with Andreas Antonopoulos, a best-selling author, speaker, educator, and one of the world’s foremost bitcoin and open blockchain experts.
We covered at a high level, what blockchain is and, as the first application of blockchain technology, what Bitcoin is and the history of digital cash that predates Bitcoin. We also covered how crypto is regulated by the code itself and how crypto protocols are “rules without rulers”, why Bitcoin has endured for over ten years, the difference between public systems like Bitcoin and private systems like Facebook’s LibraCoin, tokenizing real world assets and the role that cryptocurrencies will have for “the other 6 billion” people in the world who do not currently benefit from the financial status quo.
Finally, Andreas and I discussed a recent tweet storm in response to his “intentionally provocative” tweet inviting suggestions for diverse podcasts to appear on in the blockchain space.
