Antonopoulos is a best-selling author, speaker, educator, and one of the world’s foremost bitcoin and open blockchain experts.Follow on Twitter: @aantonopWebsite: https://aantonop.com/In “Escaping the Global Banking Cartel,” Andreas asks why we are familiar with the cartels in drugs and oil, but rarely acknowledge one of the largest cartels in the world: banking.

Just kidding… He shares his thoughts on the recently released Libra whitepaper, as part of a permissioned blockchain project spearheaded by Facebook. Years of jokes about “FaceCoin” and “ZuckBucks” have finally come to life - sort of. In the previous episode, he talked about how some venture capitalists are monkeying around by downplaying the killer applications of open blockchains  in favor of… bananas.

Will Libra’s challenges have any impact on open public blockchains?This talk took place on June 19th 2019 at the Scottish Blockchain Meetup in Edinburgh, Scotland.This series is called ‘Unscrypted’ for a reason: all of Andreas’ talks are performed without slides or notes.

Bitcoin: A Swiss Bank In Everyone’s Pocket

UNSCRYPTED Episode 14: Bitcoin - A Swiss Bank In Everyone's PocketAndreas M. Antonopoulos is a best-selling author, speaker, educator, and one of the world’s foremost bitcoin and open blockchain experts.Follow on Twitter: @aantonopWebsite: https://aantonop.com/In “Bitcoin: A Swiss Bank in Everyone's Pocket," Andreas examines the morality of technology and the politics of fear, including former President Barack Obama's infamous statement that broad adoption of cryptography and cryptocurrencies would be like having "a Swiss bank account your pocket." In the last episode, he questioned the viability of Facebook’s Libra project. Now he analyses how the same fear mongering is being used to target journalists and whistleblowers who use these tools to expose war crimes. Once we equip more people around the world with the equivalent of a Swiss bank in their pocket, the overwhelming majority would use it to pursue happiness, healthcare, and a better life for their children.This talk took place on June 23rd 2019 at the Volkshaus for the Swiss Bitcoin Meetup in Zurich, Switzerland.This series is called ‘Unscrypted’ for a reason: all of Andreas’ talks are performed without slides or notes.

Money as a System of Control

UNSCRYPTED Episode 7: Money as a System of ControlAndreas M. Antonopoulos is a best-selling author, speaker, educator, and one of the world’s foremost bitcoin and open blockchain experts.Follow on Twitter: @aantonopWebsite: https://aantonop.com/In “Money as a System of Control,”Andreas reviews the three functions of money that you may remember from your first introduction to economics: store of value (SoV), medium of Exchange (MoE), and unit of Account (UoA). But what if there is actually a fourth use of money which subordinates all the other functions? In the last episode, he prompted you to think about whether you really understand what money is; now he prompts you to question whether the money in your bank account is really yours. He also argues that our monetary systems have become an extrajudicial tool of state actors to exert political influence over large populations, where freedom of speech and association can be snuffed at the bank.This talk took place on September 12th 2017 at the Advanced Digital Innovation Summit in Vancouver, Canada.This series is called ‘Unscrypted’ for a reason: all of Andreas’ talks are performed without slides or notes.
