Privacy, Security, and Freedom Tech with Dash

Dash is part of the Tokyo Citadel Group, who I was able to meet when I was travelling through Japan recently. My impression from the Tokyo Citadel was that there was real interest in privacy, security, and the potential threats that Bitcoiners personally face from the nation state. Now this is not unfounded, and we have seen people being detained over things like coinjoins and through chain analysis. But I wanted to understand this perspective more and compare it with the situation in New Zealand.

Reflections on Self-Sovereignty and Self-Development with Bitkiwi Paul

I talk with Bitkiwi Paul, co-organiser of the Bitkiwi Meetup Events. We are coming up to the end of the year and it is a good time to think about what has come to pass and spend time with family and friends. Bitcoin is just a bit of code, some words, a computer network, but for many people it can be a catalyst for profound personal change. Looking at health, introspection, self-development, and a reassessment of ones role in the community and in life. You can call it meaning making or finding purpose, but there is something about the idea of Bitcoin that is powerful, and I do hope you enjoy this exploration with Paul.
