I am invited for an interview with Al Jazeera on the rising popularity of Bitcoin in UK shops.
London has the largest bitcoin meetup in the world thanks to the hard work of Iain Cresswell and Paul Gordon who have been responsible for bringing a small self select group and turning it in to a mass movement over the past year or so. Small independent merchants like the Old Shoreditch Station, where this interview is shot, are exactly the kinds of businesses cryptocurrencies are made for. Low cost, easy to implement and good for helping raise awareness for both the currency and the entrepreneur.
My thanks to Rawan Hijazi for giving me the opportunity to take part in this short introduction, I hope to do more.
Following our previous conversations Andreas and I have an open ended philosophical enquiry in to Bitcoin. You can find the Let’s Talk Bitcoin blog and see the comments from the community.
Please note that I do not consider myself a philosopher but rather a student of philosophy. I love wisdom, I live in wonder and I simply enjoy furthering my understanding of the world around me and with it the understanding of myself.
From where I am at the moment I do not anticipate ever reaching a final resting place of thought. I don’t consider my knowledge complete and as such most likely already disagree with most of what I say in this podcast.
In this show I am joined by Meghan Lords
of Bitcoin Not Bombs
in which we talk about the metaphysics of peace and how Bitcoin’s distributed consensus can help us achieve it.
