In todays episode I spoke with Erik Cason about The Crypto Sovereignty Project. We also discussed why bitcoin is a vote against the fake democracy we live in today and how it can make war have a real cost to governments and potentially remove the incentive for them to kill innocent human beings.
Cryptosovereignty is the personal power, economic liberty, and political praxis that exist in bitcoin directly, crypto assets generally, and the internet widely. It is the power of any single human — no matter their station of birth, class of wealth, or creed of faith — to choose to put their economic, social, and political rights into a new digital common-wealth that is inviolable and beyond the power of any and all governments to violate.
"[We will not find a solution to political problems in cryptography] Yes, but we can win a major battle in the arms race and gain a new territory of freedom for several years. Governments are good at cutting off the heads of a centrally controlled networks like Napster, but pure P2P networks like Gnutella and Tor seem to be holding their own." –Satoshi Nakamoto
