Decoding the ‘Bitcoin Revolution’

Synopsis
What’s blockchain? Are we now in the cripto-winter of this technology?
In the wake of the 2008 financial crisis, the mysterious figure Satoshi Nakamoto published a revolutionary white paper that described a simple peer-to-peer electronic cash system. This was the origin of Bitcoin. A decade later, Ignota Books has published ‘The White Paper, with a guide by Jaya Klara Brekke’ as an invitation to return to the source. As editor Ben Vickers says, ‘we’re entering a period akin to the collapse of the dot-com era. It’s a time of reflection, but also one where crucial questions about the future will be decided’. In this podcast/discussion,crypto-economist Brekke, Vickers and journalist Paul Mason discuss the importance of ‘chain’ as a technology. [76 minutes].
