Trust without centralization, digital cash without identity, and the currency commons beyond corporations. In this talk, Andreas clarifies what “trustless” means and explains why we should avoid departing from a realm where people can pay people without intermediaries imposing their political choices into every transaction. He also argues that cashlessness represents a fundamental shift in the relationship between people and money, people and the state, people and corporations.
This talk took place on May 31st 2017 for the ‘Talk and Trade’ meetup at the Blockchain Centre in Melbourne, Australia: https://antonopoulos.com/event/talk-and-trade-bitcoin-melbourne/
