Centrally controlled currencies were not the norm for most of human history, and in many small-scale human societies today it is still not the norm. Will people in more barter-based, technologically illiterate economies be able to adopt cryptocurrencies like bitcoin? What does the type of money people use say about their level of social organisation? Why are abstract forms of money the most useful for trade on large scales?

This is part of a talk which took place at Pebble Beach for the Capgemini CXO Forum on November 1-3rd 2017 in Monterey, California.
