Brett Scott, author of The Heretic’s Guide to Global Finance: Hacking the Future of Money (order for Bitcoin), and I first met in last year’s Bitcoin Expo in London. We also had a chance to catch up during the Coinscrum-Blockchain event in 2014 Fintech Week.
I recorded an interview with Brett discussing the use cases for bitcoin as a currency outside the Global Financial System, but with a need for real world application. We talked about the psychological importance of using cash in a world that is becoming digital and, the role bitcoin can play in this case.
We discussed how Bitcoin has allowed for our current generation to creatively think with regards to alternative currencies and, how the use of blockchain technology for voting can empower people worldwide. We also talked about Net Neutrality, how it is naive to think of the Internet as a human right and, the relation to Bitcoin.
