    • Self-Improvement

There should be someone behind the scenes controlling Bitcoin right? I mean, it cannot just run and maintain itself right? I'm just stating what you've always been thinking after you heard that Bitcoin is not controlled by an institution or government. 
In this episode, we're going to be demystifying that very question. Grey Jabesi connected with Riccardo Spagni(@flufflypony) AKA Fluffy Pony, a member of the Monero Core Team, who are stewards of the Monero Project, and is also the lead maintainer of the Monero project. 
Monero is an open-source cryptocurrency created in April 2014 that focuses on fungibility, privacy, and decentralization. It's currently valued at $992M. 
In this episode, we discussed:
Who founded Monero
How Fluffy Pony got involved
Responsibilities as a lead maintainer
Who controls or update Bitcoin code
How Monero is maintained
Law enforcement (The CIA and Interpol)
Best tools and practices for personal privacy
Success
His favorite Apps
His concerns with using Whatsapp for messaging
