NLW is joined by:
Andrew Bailey, Yale-NUS College @resistancemoney
Bradley Rettler, University of Wyoming @rettlerb
Craig Warmke, Northern Illinois University @craigwarmke
The three form a research collective called Resistance Money and are working on a book about bitcoin’s use helping individuals overcome infringement by states and other institutions.
On this episode they discuss bitcoin’s ideological flexibility and situate it in the context of the larger political landscape.
