    • Technology

Hosted by Enigma's Head of Growth Tor Bair, our thirtieth episode features Andreas M. Antonopoulos.

Andreas is a best-selling author, speaker, educator, and one of the world’s foremost bitcoin and open blockchain experts. In 2014, he wrote the one of the foundational books of the blockchain space, Mastering Bitcoin. He is also the author of The Internet of Money as well as his most recent book, Mastering Ethereum. He is widely respected in the blockchain space for not only his knowledge and ceaseless curiosity about decentralized technologies, but also for his extreme generosity in teaching others.

On this wide-ranging episode, Andreas talks about how the public’s perception of bitcoin and cryptocurrencies has shifted in the last decade, how Libra and centralized digital currencies will affect open blockchains (as well as our human rights), and how people inside and outside the decentralization space can and should work together to fight these growing threats.

Enigma's podcast "Decentralize This!" features guests from all over the decentralization space: developers, investors, entrepreneurs, researchers, writers, artists, people in government and enterprise - all individuals who care deeply about building a more decentralized and sustainable world. How can all these people with different perspectives collaborate to create and scale the technologies we need to shape a better future?
