Decentralization and Privacy are more important than ever!

in #bitcoin8 months ago (edited)

As our lives get further thrust into the digital realm, what we need more than ever is robust digital security to protect the increased activity we’re doing online. Unfortunately we're actually going backwards. Surveillance has become normalized, and people were never given the opportunity to opt in to this increased tracking. This is what Adam Back, Blockstream CEO, said in an interview with me at the Satoshi Roundtable earlier this year.

Unfortunately the internet is not nearly private enough, and not nearly decentralized enough. To help solve this, his company built a Satellite that gives people more privacy for their bitcoin transactions and also helps freedom of speech.

Adam and I discuss how the Satellite works, why it's important, and whether it is possible to take back control of the internet and try to preserve some private space in our digital lives.

Full 1-hr interview with Adam Back available on my "NBTV Members" page.
