In this talk, Andreas explores the confusion and instinctive disbelief from newcomers about how open, decentralized cryptocurrencies can scale and grow in value without the finality of approval from authorities. He also emphasises the importance of “don’t trust, verify” and why we should become accustomed to uncertainty, so that we may individually discover authenticity and truth. Markets are emergent aggregations of subjective decisions.
