129 - Why the Crypto Critics Are Wrong | Matthew Green
Matthew Green is an Associate Professor of Computer Science at John Hopkins University, where he teaches courses, cryptography, distributed computing systems, blockchains, and cryptocurrency. He also helped create Zerocash, one of the first privacy cryptocurrency experiments, and ultimately influenced the Zcash protocol. He recently wrote an article titled, “In Defense of Crypto(Currency)”, in response to an open letter to Congress, signed by a large group of technologists, denouncing the entire premise of cryptocurrency and urging congress to strongly regulate the space. In this episode, Matthew talks about his article, how crypto can do better as an industry, and why to be optimistic about the future of crypto. ------ 🚀 SUBSCRIBE TO NEWSLETTER: https://newsletter.banklesshq.com/ 🎙️ SUBSCRIBE TO PODCAST: http://podcast.banklesshq.com/ ------ Topics Covered: 0:00 Intro 6:34 Letter to Congress 12:27 Matthew’s Background 15:45 Why Write This Letter 19:03 Crypto Haters 24:14 What to do About Scams 28:45 Regulation 32:28 Addressing Concrete Objections 35:36 PoW Climate Issue 38:06 Blockchains Transfer Reversal 45:50 Crypto Doesn’t Scale Claim 50:42 Privacy Claims 1:02:43 Annoying Hype 1:05:50 Doing Better as an Industry 1:10:25 Matthew’s Favorite Project 1:14:58 Why Be Optimistic About Crypto 1:17:13 Closing & Disclaimers ------ Resources: Matthew Green https://twitter.com/matthew_d_green Letter to Congress https://concerned.tech/ In Defense of Crypto(Currency) https://blog.cryptographyengineering.com/2022/06/09/in-defense-of-cryptocurrency/ ----- Not financial or tax advice.

EU's TERRIFYING Mass Surveillance Plan - w/ Matthew Green
NBTV: Your Money, Your Data, Your Life
A leaked document from the EU, proposing new regulation, describes the most sophisticated mass surveillance machinery ever deployed outside of China and the USSR.The proposal is for a new mass surveillance system that will read private text messages, not to detect CSAM, but to detect “grooming”.It would mandate scanning of encrypted messages for CSAM material.Once you open up “machines reading your text messages” for any purpose, there are no limits.Matthew Green, renowned security expert and cryptography professor, says:"Let me be clear what that means: to detect 'grooming' is not simply searching for known CSAM. It isn’t using AI to detect new CSAM, which is also on the table.It’s running algorithms reading your actual text messages to figure out what you’re saying, at scale."Matthew and I dive into everything you need to know. 0:00 Pre-roll0:53 Intro2:00 The EU SILL SCAN Your Computers2:23 Matthew Green4:12 System will READ text messages between people to try to detect "grooming".7:52 "This is not voluntary."18:47 Targeting dissidents and election disinformation23:40 Apple's CSAM-scanning proposal27:38 Decentralization: "They can't win."30:55 Quiz Winner: Congratulations SpeedRacer111!32:40 Show Out and ThanksEU report:https://ec.europa.eu/home-affairs/system/files/2022-05/Proposal%20for%20a%20Regulation%20laying%20down%20rules%20to%20prevent%20and%20combat%20child%20sexual%20abuse_en_0.pdfBrought to you by NBTV members: Sam Ettaro, Will Sandoval, and Naomi BrockwellTo support NBTV, visit https://www.nbtv.media/support(tax-deductible in the US)Sign up for the free CryptoBeat newsletter here:https://cryptobeat.substack.com/Beware of scammers, I will never give you a phone number or reach out to you with investment advice.

From Old Winchelsea to Skara Brae, Matthew Green transports us to Britain's shadowlands - the once thriving towns and cities that are now lost to time and memory.Drowned by storms. Buried by sand. Requisitioned by the army. One of Britain's most exciting young historians, Matthew Green has travelled the British Isles in search of the remnants of settlements that once adorned the nation's map - until nature, disease, politics or economics reduced them to ruins. In this episode of the podcast, he shares stories of medieval boomtowns, an ancient settlement that predates the pyramids, and many more highlights that cannot be found in any contemporary tourist's guidebook. In the face of climate change and other major historical forces, this tour of Britain's shadowlands serves as a powerful reminder of the transcience not only of our own lives, but of the manmade world itself.

Old and New Winchelsea with historian Dr Matthew Green
The walk begins on the shingle at Winchelsea Beach - the possible site of the drowned city that was engulfed by waves in the 11th century. Crossing the marshy fields inland Clare and Matthew climb the steep hill to the gate of the rebuilt and fortified town of Winchelsea that was once a thriving wine port. They walk through the town passing open wine cellars as they go. The town was built on a grid system and as with similar towns in France and Italy it became known as a medieval Manhattan. Trade with European ports in France, Italy, Spain and Portugal was vibrant and it was said that in the Middle Ages Winchelsea was close to becoming the wine capital of Europe. Fierce fighting took place between its citizens and bands of marauding pirates from across the Channel to protects its wealth and prosperity.Dr Matthew Green specialises in walking as a way of understanding history and gives wine and gin tours in London. He says he prefers to try and understand how people lived and felt at the time they were living rather than to focus on the politics and conflicts of the past.Crossing into fields on the south side of Winchelsea they walk over buried streets of houses, a hospital and the market place down to the stone towngate on the road to Icklesham.Having submerged the original town, the sea then played another cruel trick on Winchelsea. Large deposits of shingle amassed meaning ships could no longer enter the harbour. Trade dwindled and the town declined. Only around a third of the original settlement remains.Producer: Maggie Ayre

This week we witness the drowning of the Tryweryn Valley, a devastating event which galvanised the Welsh nationalist cause. It’s easy to think of history as a gradual accumulation of events, buildings and people – but we don’t spend as much time thinking about its dead ends. That’s exactly what my guest today, Dr Matthew Green, does in his evocative new book Shadowlands: A Journey Through Lost Britain. In it, Matthew visits eight villages, settlements and towns stretching from the neolithic period to the twentieth century that fell victim to one form of obliteration or another. For today’s episode, Matthew chose to travel through time to the beautiful Welsh valley of Tryweryn. Up until the 1960s, the valley was home to the village of Capel Celyn, one of the few predominantly Welsh-speaking communities left in Wales. But in 1955 the inhabitants of Capel Celyn became aware, via an article in their local paper, that their village was to be drowned. This episode is supported by Faber and recorded at Soho Radio Studios. Show NotesScene One: 15 August 1965. The Tryweryn Valley, freshly scoured of streets, houses, school, post office, church, farms, graveyards and trees, is filled to capacity after the Capel Celyn Defence committee loses its monumental struggle against Liverpool Corporation and English MPs. Scene Two: 10 October 1965. The publication of a lurid newspaper interview in which the leader of the Free Wales Army says his organisation fully intends to prevent the opening of Llyn Celyn. Scene Three: 21 October 1965. The Lord Mayor and Aldermen of Liverpool Corporation attend the grossly insensitive opening ceremony of Llyn Celyn at a tea party in a marquee overlooking the new reservoir. All hell breaks loose. Momento: The trampled Union jack flag that the Free Wales Army through into the new reservoir.People/SocialPresenter: Artemis Irvine Guest: Dr Matthew Green Production: Maria Nolan Podcast partner: Unseen Histories Follow us on Twitter: @tttpodcast_ Or on Facebook See where 1965 fits on our Timeline
