Tech Intersect #113: SPOTLIGHT Ep. 3-Andreas Antonopoulos-Bitcoin for the other 6 Billion
Show Notes Chapter Markers

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 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 shared his insights on race, gender, the myth of meritocracy and what he describes as the “dominance of the mediocre” in the crypto ecosystem.
