In todays episode Chris Belcher and I discus JoinMarket, Electrum personal server and CoinSwap.
Chris is well known in the Bitcoin world for helping improve privacy.
The Human Rights Foundation received a donation by an anonymous individual to help continue improving bitcoin privacy and combat authoritarianism and surveillance that’s on the rise in many countries. When Alex Gladstein, chief strategy officer came to making his decision on who should receive this grant, Chris was the obvious choice.
Bitcoin privacy is a top priority as it allows reporters and activists to receive donations and to continue their important work under increased pressure as well as preserving human dignity.
I had a great time talking to Chris and I hope you enjoy listening.
