UNSCRYPTED   Episode 20: Investing in Education Instead of Speculation Andreas M. Antonopoulos is a best-selling author, speaker, educator, and one of the world’s foremost bitcoin and open blockchain experts. Follow on Twitter: @aantonop Website: https://aantonop.com/ In “Investing in Education Instead of Speculation," Andreas explains how education and training in the Bitcoin and open blockchain space can enrich your life in a sustainable way.

This talk took place on June 20th 2016 at the Blockchain Training Conference (in collaboration with the CryptoCurrency Certification Consortium) within the MaRS Discovery District of Toronto, Canada. This series is called ‘Unscrypted’ for a reason: all of Andreas’ talks are performed without slides or notes. You can find any necessary corrections and clarifications in the podcast description. Credits: The narration for this episode was done by Stephanie Murphy. Production support from Erica and Jessica. Video editing by Adrian Tano. Sound editing by Dimitris Angelidis of Sampi Media.

Bubble Boy and the Sewer Rat
25:32
UNSCRYPTED   Episode 19: Bubble Boy and the Sewer Rat Andreas M. Antonopoulos is a best-selling author, speaker, educator, and one of the world’s foremost bitcoin and open blockchain experts. Follow on Twitter: @aantonop Website: https://aantonop.com/ In “Bubble Boy and the Sewer Rat,"Andreas delivers a whimsical security analysis of the open, public and decentralized Bitcoin system, compared to the closed, proprietary and centralized alternatives. He argues that the strategy of security by isolation has consequences for the ability of any computer system to build immunity. While it may not be pretty, being constantly exposed and attacked in the wild open internet will help Bitcoin achieve censorship resistance and thrive to a degree that private blockchains simply cannot. This talk took place on October 16th 2015 at Draper University in San Mateo, California. This series is called ‘Unscrypted’ for a reason: all of Andreas’ talks are performed without slides or notes.

Bitcoin and the Banks: Five Stages of Grief
19:28
UNSCRYPTED   Episode 18: Bitcoin and the Banks - Five Stages of Grief Andreas M. Antonopoulos is a best-selling author, speaker, educator, and one of the world’s foremost bitcoin and open blockchain experts. Follow on Twitter: @aantonop Website: https://aantonop.com/ In “Bitcoin and the Banks: Five Stages of Grief,"Andreas examines the rise of "Blockchain" as an attempt by the banking status quo to dilute the disruptive potential of Bitcoin by removing its most interesting features. He argues that this is one symptom of a multi-stage grief process that banks will inevitably transition through as they try to come to terms with Bitcoin and the new open blockchain ecosystem. This talk was delivered on March 17th 2015 at the Decentralized Technology event in Toronto, Canada. This series is called ‘Unscrypted’ for a reason: all of Andreas’ talks are performed without slides or notes. You can find any necessary corrections and clarifications in the podcast description.

UNSCRYPTED   Episode 17: Bitcoin, Payment Security, and Consumer Protection Andreas M. Antonopoulos is a best-selling author, speaker, educator, and one of the world’s foremost bitcoin and open blockchain experts. Follow on Twitter: @aantonop Website: https://aantonop.com/ In “Bitcoin, Payment Security, and Consumer Protection," Andreas advocates that regulators adopt a ‘wait-and-see’ approach towards Bitcoin, so as to not hamper the potential of its most innovative features. He also criticises the insanity of the current fragmented systems of payment, breaks down why they fail at consumer protection, and how with Bitcoin we can expect better.

One of a Kind: Why Bitcoin is ‘The Next Bitcoin’
34:55
UNSCRYPTED   Episode 16: One of a Kind - Why Bitcoin is 'The Next Bitcoin' Andreas M. Antonopoulos is a best-selling author, speaker, educator, and one of the world’s foremost bitcoin and open blockchain experts. Follow on Twitter: @aantonop Website: https://aantonop.com/ In “One of a Kind: Why Bitcoin is 'The Next Bitcoin,'" Andreas addresses the speculation about what will be the "next Bitcoin" or the "next Ethereum." Echoing previous talks like 'Invest in Education Instead of Speculation,' he argues that the focus on searching for the best investment or time to buy amid a sea of pump-and-dump schemes is a worse way to spend your time than gathering knowledge about how these systems work. He also tells the story about how he bought bitcoin for the first time, why it is not the get-rich-quick scheme you may think it is, and the ways they could fail. This talk took place on July 12th 2019 at the Athens Bitcoin and Blockchain Tech meetup in Athens, Greece. This series is called ‘Unscrypted’ for a reason: all of Andreas’ talks are performed without slides or notes. You can find any necessary corrections and clarifications in the podcast description.

Follow on Twitter: @aantonop Website: https://aantonop.com/ In “Outside the Golden Cage of Banking," Andreas covers the history of financial regulation in the United States, and how banks became the cop of last resort in countries around the world. In the last episode, he prompted you to think about combating the politics of fear. Echoing previous talks like “Money as a System of Control,” he also questions why  we have come to accept totalitarian surveillance in our financial lives while protesting against other invasions of privacy. Finally, he argues that Bitcoin will thrive outside the golden cage of the banking cartel. This talk took place on June 27th 2019 at the Munich Bitcoin Meetup in Munich, Germany.

Bitcoin: A Swiss Bank In Everyone’s Pocket
26:18
UNSCRYPTED   Episode 14: Bitcoin - A Swiss Bank In Everyone's Pocket Andreas M. Antonopoulos is a best-selling author, speaker, educator, and one of the world’s foremost bitcoin and open blockchain experts. Follow on Twitter: @aantonop Website: https://aantonop.com/ In “Bitcoin: A Swiss Bank in Everyone's Pocket," Andreas examines the morality of technology and the politics of fear, including former President Barack Obama's infamous statement that broad adoption of cryptography and cryptocurrencies would be like having "a Swiss bank account your pocket." In the last episode, he questioned the viability of Facebook’s Libra project. Now he analyses how the same fear mongering is being used to target journalists and whistleblowers who use these tools to expose war crimes. Once we equip more people around the world with the equivalent of a Swiss bank in their pocket, the overwhelming majority would use it to pursue happiness, healthcare, and a better life for their children. This talk took place on June 23rd 2019 at the Volkshaus for the Swiss Bitcoin Meetup in Zurich, Switzerland. This series is called ‘Unscrypted’ for a reason: all of Andreas’ talks are performed without slides or notes. You can find any necessary corrections and clarifications in the podcast description. Credits: The narration for this episode was done by Stephanie Murphy. Production support from Erica and Jessica. Video editing by Adrian Tano. Sound engineering by Dimitris Angelidis of Sampi Media.

While the quote was interpreted to have an impact on Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies, Obama was not specifically talking about cryptocurrencies. Instead, the statement was made in the context of the Apple vs. FBI legal battle, and whether consumer devices like the iPhone should have strong encryption that the government can't crack.

Libre Not Libra: Facebook’s Blockchain Project

UNSCRYPTED   Episode 13: Libre Not Libra - Facebook's Blockchain Project Andreas M. Antonopoulos is a best-selling author, speaker, educator, and one of the world’s foremost bitcoin and open blockchain experts. Follow on Twitter: @aantonop Website: https://aantonop.com/ In “Libre Not Libra: Facebook's Blockchain Project," Andreas answers the burning question… Has he tried haggis? Just kidding… He shares his thoughts on the recently released Libra whitepaper, as part of a permissioned blockchain project spearheaded by Facebook. Years of jokes about “FaceCoin” and “ZuckBucks” have finally come to life - sort of. In the previous episode, he talked about how some venture capitalists are monkeying around by downplaying the killer applications of open blockchains  in favor of… bananas. Now he makes us wonder whether Libra will even survive to become a production network. Is Silicon Valley coming for banking? Will Libra’s challenges have any impact on open public blockchains? This talk took place on June 19th 2019 at the Scottish Blockchain Meetup in Edinburgh, Scotland. This series is called ‘Unscrypted’ for a reason: all of Andreas’ talks are performed without slides or notes. You can find any necessary corrections and clarifications in the podcast description.

Universal Access to Basic Finance

UNSCRYPTED   Episode 11: Universal Access to Basic Finance Andreas M. Antonopoulos is a best-selling author, speaker, educator, and one of the world’s foremost bitcoin and open blockchain experts. Follow on Twitter: @aantonop Website: https://aantonop.com/ In “Universal Access to Basic Finance,” Andreas advocates for protecting and expanding access to universal basic finance. Echoing previous talks like “Worse Than Useless,” he explains why the question of how cryptocurrencies should be regulated is a distraction, and that eradicating cash will not affect the most powerful bad actors, who operate with state-sponsored impunity and banking licenses. He also declares that those who develop surveillance infrastructure have exhibited moral bankruptcy and should face a period of scrutiny over their ethical integrity. This talk took place on June 12th 2019 at the CryptoCompare Digital Asset Summit in London, England. This series is called ‘Unscrypted’ for a reason: all of Andreas’ talks are performed without slides or notes. You can find any necessary corrections and clarifications in the podcast description.

While they legally can, it is usually in a relatively very restricted capacity. To buy or sell property, particularly if high-value, they often require the support of multiple men. Claims on property are held in higher regard when they come from men rather than women. Women can use bank accounts as long as they have permission from their male guardian(s). They have only recently been encouraged to pursue home ownership themselves. Furthermore, LGBT persons, including those identifying as women, have next to no protections under the law.

UNSCRYPTED   Episode 8: Worse Than Useless Andreas M. Antonopoulos is a best-selling author, speaker, educator, and one of the world’s foremost bitcoin and open blockchain experts. Follow on Twitter: @aantonop Website: https://aantonop.com/ In “Worse Than Useless: Financial Surveillance,” Andreas draws a connection between medical pseudoscience and the financial totalitarian surveillance, as practiced by modern banks and state intelligence agencies. He explores the hidden externalities and moral hazards inherent in KYC/AML policies and how overblown / misplaced concerns about so-called “black money” are disconnecting countries and even continents from the world economy. Why is it common sense that money laundering is the fundamental business of fully-licensed, regulated banks? Who runs the real "dark net"? He urges that, before we try to “fix” the financial system, we should first be sure we are not making it worse.

Follow on Twitter: @aantonop Website: https://aantonop.com/ In “Money as a System of Control,”Andreas reviews the three functions of money that you may remember from your first introduction to economics: store of value (SoV), medium of Exchange (MoE), and unit of Account (UoA). But what if there is actually a fourth use of money which subordinates all the other functions? In the last episode, he prompted you to think about whether you really understand what money is; now he prompts you to question whether the money in your bank account is really yours. He also argues that our monetary systems have become an extrajudicial tool of state actors to exert political influence over large populations, where freedom of speech and association can be snuffed at the bank.

Escaping the Global Banking Cartel

UNSCRYPTED   Episode 6: Escaping the Global Banking Cartel Andreas M. Antonopoulos is a best-selling author, speaker, educator, and one of the world’s foremost bitcoin and open blockchain experts. Follow on Twitter: @aantonop Website: https://aantonop.com/ In “Escaping the Global Banking Cartel,” Andreas asks why we are familiar with the cartels in drugs and oil, but rarely acknowledge one of the largest cartels in the world: banking. In the last episode, “The Currency Wars,” he talked about Bitcoin providing an exit to those suffering from currency crises in their countries. Now he analyses recent (though often unacknowledged) history with the 2008 financial crisis, the corrupt revolving door with regulators, how kleptocracy is destroying democracy,  and why Bitcoin matters as an exit when voice is no longer an option. This talk took place on November 10th 2018 as part of the 'Internet of Money' tour at the Edmonds Center for the Arts near Seattle, Washington. This series is called ‘Unscrypted’ for a reason: all of Andreas’ talks are performed without slides or notes. You can find any necessary corrections and clarifications in the podcast description.

Follow on Twitter: @aantonop Website: https://aantonop.com/ In “The Currency Wars,” Andreas examines what Bitcoin’s place is within the international world of finance, and what role it may play in the economic turbulence to come with capital controls, hyperinflation, cashlessness, trade wars, and demonetisation. In the previous episode, “Streaming Money,” he talked about the future possibilities of Bitcoin as money. Now he explains that the state of the traditional financial system will not only affect how Bitcoin is designed and deployed, but why the presence of a borderless, censorship-resistant money will provide an exit from these bubbles of bordered, nationalist “flag money.” This talk took place on December 3rd 2016 at the Coinscrum MiniCon, hosted by Imperial College in London, England.

Follow on Twitter: @aantonop Website: https://aantonop.com/ In "Streaming Money,” Andreas guides the audience through a future where money acquires a new time dimension. Do you struggle with the temptation to go on spending sprees? What if you could render your money unspendable for a period of time? In the last episode, “Forkology,” he talked about what happens when there are rifts in consensus. Now he explores the implications of existing scripting capabilities in Bitcoin, and how those capabilities will expand even further with a second-layer protocol called the Lightning Network -- more than a year before it would even go live on testnet in 2017!

The Stories We Tell About Money

UNSCRYPTED   Episode 2: The Stories We Tell About Money Andreas M. Antonopoulos is a best-selling author, speaker, educator, and one of the world’s foremost bitcoin and open blockchain experts. Follow on Twitter: @aantonop Website: https://aantonop.com/ In “The Stories We Tell About Money,” Andreas recounts the history of Bitcoin and what it represents, building upon all the stories we've been told over the centuries about what "money" is, how we perceive its value, and why the old answers have changed as we adjust to this new world of digital peer-to-peer currencies. In the previous episode, “Introduction to Bitcoin,” he talked about what Bitcoin is and why it is special. Now he also discusses global threats to economic stability and trust in the traditional financial system, including demonetisation and wealth destruction through inflation, which will be explored further in “The Currency Wars.” This talk took place on March 26th, 2017 at the JW Marriott Sahar International Airport in Mumbai, India. This series is called ‘Unscrypted’ for a reason: all of Andreas’ talks are performed without slides or notes. You can find any necessary corrections and clarifications in the podcast description. Credits: The narration for this episode was done by Stephanie Murphy. Production support from Erica and Jessica. Video editing by Adrian Tano. Sound editing by Dimitris Angelidis of Sampi Media.

The music is called “Unbounded” by Orfan. iTUNES: https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/the-stories-we-tell-about-money/id1482850426?i=1000454607620 CORRECTIONS: At 1:44, Andreas says “this all started on January 3rd 2009 with the simultaneous publication of a paper,” referencing Bitcoin’s whitepaper. Bitcoin’s whitepaper, written by Satoshi Nakamoto, was actually published on October 31st (or November 1st, in some timezones) of 2008. January 3rd was the date of the genesis block being mined, the start of the Bitcoin blockchain. At 38:26, Andreas talks about how a 2% inflation rate sounds innocuous to most people, because they can’t project the effect of that rate year-on-year in the long term. He says that a 2.2% inflation rate will result in 50% of the value or spending power of your savings being lost over a period of 10 years. The loss of spending power is actually closer to 25%. At 43:45, he also says, “In 2000, [about] 90% of the companies were wiped out in a single stock market wash-out,” referring to the dot-com crash. However, according to professors from the University of Maryland and University of California, about “48 percent of dot-com companies founded since 1996 were still around in late 2004, more than four years after the Nasdaq’s peak in March 2000,” though at much lower valuations. [Note from ANDREAS: In this talk I foolishly attempted to improvise math in my head while delivering the talk. I am not very good at math. Turns out I am even worse at improv-math. None of my bad math changes the point I was making. Ssssh! Don’t tell anyone I suck at improv-math.] ORIGINAL VIDEO: "The Stories We Tell About Money" - https://youtu.be/ONvg9SbauMg PREVIOUS EPISODE: "Introduction to Bitcoin" - https://aantonop.com/introduction-to-bitcoin/ NEXT EPISODE: "Forkology: A Study of Forks for Newbies" - https://aantonop.com/forkology/ SUPPORT: Want early-access to talks?
