We all know how the story goes. Those who thrive on the status quo, will fight with tears and blood against anything that threatens to disrupt it. Not long ago, banks and central governments were trashing and in some cases banning the use of cryptocurrencies. Slowly they are coming around, but they have not given up the fight. The question though is, who will determine what you use as money in the future? In this episode, we explore how alternative forms of value are being captured and exchanged through distributed technology systems. The discussion goes well beyond government issued currencies towards a potential future monetary system, where we may be able to choose which forms of “money” to transact in, based on currencies that more closely reflect our values and interests.
