Full Audio Show

Video Interview

Is your work future-proof? On this week's show, we talk about the decentralized future of manufacturing in a long-awaited (by us) episode featuring 3D printing technology and the questions of a world without human labor. We also discuss the evolution of Bitcoin Core, particularly with BIP 47's proposal for payment codes as a solution for user privacy.

We're joined this week by Bitcoin master Andreas Antonopoulos to discuss his work in multisignature security with Third Key Solutions, his recent book Mastering Bitcoin, his thoughts on Bitcoin Core development and the block size debate, and why he thinks decentralization is so important for justice.
