Do custodial "crypto-banks" and systems threaten bitcoin's potential as hard money, and the financial stability of nations? Being a banker, having a banking license, or being a financial regulator makes you a great thief. Can blockchains change governance in governments? People are misusing the term "blockchain" to mean "database," and fundamentally their business models are not about decentralisation. The problems in democracy have more to do with voter disenfranchisement and apathy about the blue vs. red Goldman Sachs. These questions are from from a talk which took place on October 11th 2018 as part of the three-day HoshoCon event at Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada: https://www.hoshocon.com If you want early-access to talks and a chance to participate in the monthly live Q&As with Andreas, become a patron: https://www.patreon.com/aantonop RELATED:
