Episode 19: Joey Krug on Decentralizing Prediction Markets with the Augur Project

This week's episode begins with some reflections on the character and significance of Edward Snowden in the wake of Citizenfour's recent Academy Award win. We then cover the recent revelations of the NSA and GCHQ's hack of cellphone SIM card encryption keys and discuss alternatives for secure messaging. With the FCC's imminent ruling on ISP regulation looming, we offer our different decentralization perspectives on the issue of Net Neutrality and state intervention. Finally, Augur Project Lead Developer Joey Krug joins us to talk about his history in crypto and his current work in building the world's first decentralized prediction market platform.
