We also debate who Satoshi Nakomoto was, why & 'he'; created bitcoin, and what the collapse of FTX and other exchanges mean for the principles of decentralization that the crypto community holds so dear. https://www.linkedin.com/in/billbar
In this episode Robert and Brett talk to futurist, entrepreneur David Orban, who talks us through the early days of the internet and crypto to where he thinks we're going as a society with increasingly dense technology saturation and immersion. From his background as Singularity University and as the founder of Network Society Research, David has a uniquely philosophical approach to the application of technology in our world. David was an early bitcoin, Ethereum and blockchain adopter, so we get into the future of crypto too.
In this week's episode we talk to Dave Birch, the author of 'Before Babylon, Beyond Bitcoin', The Currency Cold War, and Identity is the New Money about all things identity, digital assets and the future of Crypto. Dave is one of the world's preeminent experts on payments tech globally as well. But when we get into how AI's will make payments and hold bank accounts, it gets very interesting indeed.
